Coding CIC resume/gong volume?

Somehow I can't find any others complaining of this issue but I'm hoping you guys might have some tips for me. Car is 2011 w/ CIC.C1A

- Every time I start the car the music volume is extremely low, whether it's mp3's (92dB) from the usb, hard drive, or bluetooth iPhone streaming Pandora, Stitcher, or podcasts (phone at max volume). It takes a full spin of the volume knob just to reach a comfortable audiobook or background music level.
- Gongs are eardrum-blowing loud and even louder if I turn up the gong volume.
- Max volume seems normal enough: uncomfortably loud with a bit of distortion. Though not exactly rock concert levels. Of course I have to be very careful to avoid gongs when the volume is cranked up because my eyeballs bleed.

Is there any way to increase the gain on all non-gong sources? Or a way to increase the resume volume? Or reduce the gong volume? I found some possible topics in the CIC:

standard_19h (data=00)
standard_39h (data=00)
29h (data=01)
standard - standard (data=19)

Has anyone tried adding parameters to these? It looks like "RSE" refers to "Rear Seat Entertainment" so I tried adding a new key (data 4B) to VOL_MAX_ON but couldn't get it to compile. Any ideas?

I would love to know if its possible for some coding changes to Cic volume also. My unit is on CIC.C1A firmware and it always defaults the volume level after returning to the car. My older CCC unit also did the same thing.

Would love to know if its possible through coding to turn this feature off or set it to your own preference at which volume level the system defaults at after coming out of sleep.
