Could you be more specific? If you are one of the hundreds with -disorted- audio from P80, you most likely have the well documented capacitor problem. (similar issue with SW-1 SW-1S etc.)

Go here: http://kiwa.com/PRO80.html

If you have (really) good soldering skills, you can attempt this on your own. Personally I wouldn't.

Take care,

Okay, I think I understand your problem; the audio from the speaker is low, even if the volume control is all the way up, right? I had the same problem with an old Yaesu.

How is the earphone audio affected? If the earphone is okay, but the speaker isn't, it may just be a bad capacitor at the speaker or the speaker itself. If there's a electrolytic/tantalum capacitor between the audio amplifier and the speaker itself, replace it first. If that doesn't help, check that the speaker is okay. In my case, I had to replace both. Fortunately, I was in Japan at the time, and got the whole radio tweaked up at the factory for under $20.
