Did you take it apart, "degrease" it then put in fresh grease? The reason I ask is that if you used grease to put it back together, that might be the problem.

Put a little bit of sand in there , that should make it louder

Firstly i recommend that you lube it with a small amount of thin oil, this shouldn't decrease the sound and it will make your hub last longer. And to make it louder I would just ride it and wait for it to bed in.

Lol

Everyone like a nice raspy cassette.

I personally dont like the wasp or the other "instant engagement" cassettes. Its hard to tell how fast they are going without directly looking at them. They sound really cool for a few mins. I cant imagine riding all day and hearing that buzz even while going super slow...

I like loud hubs for street though, when your travelling from spot to spot it seems like people hear you coming easier. It also can draw unwanted attention though.

What was your method of degreasing it? I cant imagine a wasp sounding quiet...

I love having a loud hub while going around a bowl but i also love hearing each individual click when i am in a low speed manual or something. I have a really crappy silent hub now but i hope to get a primo remix soon.

Wasps are almost silent when they are brand new. After a month or so they break in and become very high pitched and very loud.

It sounds loud as shit...

If you were to ride next to someone with a cassette, would you be able to hear theirs? Lol

I know when I rode with my friend last he had a wtp supreme hub and his usually dominates my antigram. His is deeper and fuller sounding.

I bet you would cut right through his hub in terms of loudness.

Same here, the individual clicks are really nice and satisfying...almost like the satisfaction of popping bubble wrap.

I own this hub, riding it for almost an year.

Let me tell you from the start that all the "it will be loud after a few months of riding" it's just urban legend.
This hub is not loud, and it won't get loud over time.

Unless...

You take it apart and bend each spring or buy replacement springs and double them up.

Then and only then it will be loud as hell!

I have a friend that owns one and it is loud as hell. And i have met others using one, perhaps they modified theirs but It was loud whatever they did or didnt do.

All this aside, let me ask you both a question since you both personally own one...Does it work well?

Yeah, most likely.

It also depends on what you consider loud.
It has a lot of clicks and at high speed you can hear it pretty well (out of the box)
But if you want the Profile Mini loudness ... you need to bend the springs

I did so, and it was waaay too loud, I had to bend them back and lower it down

Well, I'm not an expert and I don't do grinds or huge drops ... but I kinda love it grin

I ride street, and I dart through traffic a lot, so I appreciate the instant engagement.
Also, no problems with it in all these months ... but then again I don't really abuse it.

Well thats good! Thats what matters the most, does it work well. To the op, why do you want it louder than it is?

The answer to your question is to run it dry, double spring it or bend the originals.
