Tennesseepowerstroke is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
The volume drops with the installs I have done with the PIE adapters. I just installed an Isimple in my daughters Escape and I haven't noticed a drop. I installed a USA Spec adapter in my F350 and there is not any noticable drop in volume. The USA Spec is the easiest and slickest I have used. It has two outputs and doesn't require any splicing. The hot and ground are provided from the factory harness. It is a little pricier but I would use it again.

There was an adjustment on the PIE adapter. It's in the directions.

Which USA Spec adapter did you use? The BT45-Ford1 Bluetooth adapter states they will not work with an SD older than 2007. I have a 2005 with the factory 6-disc changer without the MP3 script on it. Was hoping the BT45-Ford1 would work anyway.
