ryobi radio help!
 
i have this ryobi radio http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/po...lifestyle/P741
the radio works great and gets good signal. i tried hooking up my blackberry and my wifes iphone to listen to music from off the phone and you can barely hear it. the speaker on the phone goes louder then the radio. am i doing something wrong? or does this feature just suck on this radio?

Did you try turning the volume all the way up on the device, after you plugged it into the radio?

Are you running a bunch of tools when playing music, or is it a quiet room when you play stuff back from the phone or mp3 player?

If it is quiet and very low volume, it is a POS radio and you need to take it back where you got it, and exchange for one that works. Ask to test it with a mp3 player or other device with an headphone jack, to make sure it plays loud enough.

Not sure which model it is but I believe one of the Ryobi radios has performance issues.

Check google for recalls and reviews
