Is this normal?
Sound just doesn't travel far either. I'm running skydragon with the hardon karmon thing. So maybe that's bugged?
Just need to know what volumes I should expect.
Assume you are talking about the speakers (versus headphone volume), as you don't specify, but do mention how the sound "travels".
Similar to the above response, I find the volume to be just great. The loudest speakers on any smartphone I've owned, by far. Normally have it at about 2/3 max volume when listening to music with the device somewhat nearby (maybe about 5-10 feet from where I am) and find it plenty loud enough to enjoy and hear details in the sound, etc. But still able to hear people in the room talking to me. The last couple "clicks" on the volume slider are too loud for me under most circumstances, actually. Of course that depends a bit on your own tastes (on how loud you want it), what you are listening to, how far you are from the phone, etc.
Ringtone volume anywhere above maybe 1/3 is obnoxiously loud.
I'd try a different ROM. I'm presently on InsertCoin, which has Harmon Kardon, but does not seem to have affected the overall volume significantly. It might be the ROM you are on, or some result of your settings/configuration. Hopefully its just the ROM, and not some sort of hardware defect.
One thing I know I have on my phone is that the speaker grills are a little bit occluded with what looks like where they drilled holes for the speakers. They are filled with material which does impede sound. Doesn't impact my experience enough to degrade the experience as a whole but check it out
