    Remember, if the volume punch through doesn't meet your needs, you can always program the volume controls using KEY MOVES. For instance, if you want the volume controls in CD mode to work your amplifier which is on the AUX button, then you would use the 994 command and move the 3 volume controls from AUX to CD. See the KEY MOVES section for more info.
