Forcing louder volume?

Some audio isn’t playing as loud as I would like it to. My monitor’s volume is set to 100%, and in the PulseAudio applet I have the output PCM volume set to 100% and I have the master volume of the application set at 100%. Is there any way to make it louder, because I know my headphones can go produce louder sound than what I’m currently hearing while listing to certain audio.

I was searching through old posts on sound to see if they had been addressed and stumbled across yours. Have you had any luck solving this yet?

I have the same problem. I’ve installed OpenSuse 11.2 on my Dell D830 laptop and sounds in movies are much less louder than they were in Windows…

Welcome to our forum.

Please go to yast > hardware > sound and under “other” > volume move the volume up to 100%.

Then close yast.

Next go to your mixer and ensure pcm , master, and speaker (if that control is present) volume are moved up high.

Does that help?
