Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you have installed an incorrect radio and now have a volume issue? A radio for a Bose system will only work with the factory amp. It's speaker outputs are signals to an amplifier and the amp is what generates the volume. If this replacement radio was from a Bose system and your truck does not have the amp and wiring then this radio will not produce normal sound.
