If you did a clean install and it's on a snapshot you can report a bug. But if you didn't do a clean install do that first and then if it's still there report the bug.

Please press the thanks button if I have helped you in anyway.

It says all bug reports require a logcat, should I just run some sound apps then include the logcat?

Where's the thanks button?

Unhappy Natural Log Sound Output decay
I recently installed "Dna Official Stock Kitkat - Rooted" for HTC Droid DNA by "santod040"

All sound files... alarms, ringtones, streaming start out fine then drop volume speaker output to near nothing

Has anyone else had this issue?

Me; I know the ROM is not cwm but stock 4.4.2 KitKat

I flushed and am trying cm-10.2.1-dlx.zip to test speaker output; might give vipor rom a try as well

The handset is S-OFF, ROOTED, & CWM touch 6.0.4.5, with "Dna Official Stock Kitkat - Rooted" 4.4.2; Yes, sound was fine before the OTA notice came through prompting using santod040 packages.

Much Thanks to all lead to the lite..

viper4android Disables LPA
The only time I had ever had an issue was flashing a nightly dirty. I managed to recover the audio by installing viper4android.apk. The newer versions of V4A automatically detects if LPA (low powered audio) is enabled. It will give you an option to disable it, just tick that yes please button. Usually LPA only affects things like bluetooth audio so it wouldn't drain the battery as fast, but I know with previous CM versions they had a bluetooth audio issue. Most likely completely unrelated but there might have been a WIP that caused things to be construed. If another rom version works then i'd recommend just installing a stable release.
REMEMBER ~ you are able if you run stable

This actually worked for me!

I downloaded Viper For Android, installed the updated drivers it recommended, then turned on "eXtra-Loud" for the phone speaker.

Audio is now just as loud as before.

Where's the thanks button? So that I can give you thanks.

Just wanted to pipe in with something that may be others source of low volume issues. I have had low volume on my stock Droid DNA for quite some time and really beat my head against the wall trying to figure it out. Turns out it was very simple for me but not terribly obvious. Get your phone out and look at the speaker grill (just below the Beats Audio logo on the back). Does it look a bit clogged? Mine was completely clogged (I don't use a case). I took out a toothbrush I use just for cleaning and cleared it up and my audio is nice and loud now. Just wanted to pass on this simple fix to try so others would see it.
