Default [Q] Request - Boost Bluetooth Media Volume when streaming Via car

So my title explains it all. A little background on my device and mods I'm currently using. I've got viper4android running with the Harmon Kardon mod, I notice my Bluetooth Media volume when streaming music in my car is extremely low. I have a Kia Optima and I'm finding I need to raise the volume all the way up to get decent sound. I do have the phone Bluetooth volume turned all the way up before anyone asks. I'm not sure if it's a conflict with Viper4android and Harmon Kardon mod but are there any tweaks for raising the Bluetooth volume? Maybe an edit of an xml file? Or a fix someone could put together for our Phones to raise the media volume for Bluetooth with a zip I could flash? I'll take any help though because it's bugging the crap out of me lol. Thank you in advance everyone and hopefully I'm not the only one who notices low media volume when streaming music via Bluetooth.

Maybe raising the master gate setting up would help. I got mine louder but boomsound doesn't seem to work on blue tooth so didn't like the sound as much. Hope this helps

Default Try using "HTC car" app

You may consider using the "HTC car" app if it is available with the M8. It worked for me with the One (M7). See M7 post:

If you're using Harmon, turn off live stage. This will make it louder. You can turn it on and off to hear the volume difference
