Default Disabling/changing preset volume on stock stereo?

exactly what the title says, id prefer the volume to be where it was when i turned the truck off previously OR at least preset at a louder volume.

I know in my 2000 Ranger with the stock head it would stay the same or it if was over half it would go to half on start up...I like my Dual I have now I can set a power on volume...

You might investigate this in an audio forum.

This may pertain to older Hi-Fi and not the newer stuff. Not tube old, just 10 to 20 years old...
Never turn a stereo off with the volume up at all.
Turn it to minimum then power off.

I don't know the physics of it.
For example; I put the key in my truck ignition, turn it "on" and wait until the computer gets done with the checks. THEN I start it.
Does a factory head unit have those same kinds of smarts or does it just smash out the power to the speakers as soon as the juice flows?
Wouldn't you want to give the head unit time to get ready?

I don't know really. I'm kind of asking kind of telling you what I was told and what I do.

and yes, it can just flat out scare the crap out of people!!

Eric, what year is your truck?
