Music level drops when render

I'm not new to Vegas but I stumble onto new questions all the time. I have never payed any attention to it before but now Im working on a project that requires a lot of fine tuning when it comes to the audio mix. So I mix everything on the project but when I render the overall sound level drops a lot. I cannot find any information on how to set the audio mix at render. Now when I listen to the rendered video and compare it to the project that is open the difference is huge. One would think that boosting the volume at playback on the rendered video would compensate for the drop and maybe so, but Im sure there is a proper way also.

How are you judging the audio levels of your movie?

Don't trust what you hear out of your speakers. Watch the audio meters and ensure that your audio is full and green and not peaking in the red.

Im listening through my head phones with Windows Media Player level at max. Compared to the Vegas project.

Bring your mixed audio back onto a timeline in vegas and compare. Don't compare using other software.

Your headphones won't tell you your movie's true audio level. You must use the audio meters to judge if your video is loud enough or too loud!
