I only have a moment to reply but I will take a look tomorrow to see if i can help out. One common mistake with new builds that have very low volume is using a 470k instead of the proper 470ohm resistor in the PI section. Doublecheck the color codes of that one resistor or better yet, check it with your meter to be sure that it is the proper 470ohm.

DANMAN well u were right!!!! i used a 470k instead of a 470 there i will switch out tomorrow and see what happens hopefully thats it cause everything else seemed to work fine just didnt have a ton of volume ,being that it had a 4230 difference in ohms lol
