ive just got a speaker from a stereo and connected it to the back of the computer. but the sound isnt very loud. is there any program or anyway i can make it louder?
 

A:get volume louder

You need an amplifier device. Sound cards are not meant to drive any speakers directly. If you haven't noticed, even the tiniest computer speakers come with their own power cord.

Hey guys. I've been on 7 for a few months now and I've noticed a big difference in sound reduction....when I had Vista my volume was ALOT louder. I have some 5.1 70/20w Logitech speakers....is there anyway to bypass the volume limit in 7 or something? I've already messed around with everything in the volume controls....help would be great!

- Go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound- Under Playback tab, double click on your speakers. This would open Speaker Properties- Under Enhancements tab, select Loudness Equalization

Hey,

I used to have my stereo hooked up to my pc but i got rid of it.

I had a set of speakers with the copper wire ends, and a friend helped me make it into a phono input. I plugged it into my pc and its good but, everything is full blast and still my music is quiet.

Is there a software addon or maybe a small amplifier to make it louder?

Thanks

Hi Guy's

As the heading suggests that I would like a laptop that has a louder volume. I sit approx 2 feet away from the speakers upon my laptop and when it is up full I can barely hear it I have thought about carrying external speakers about with me but that would be unethical as it is only for my enjoyment especially when trying to listen to YouTube videos, I am literally straining my hearing, so now I am looking for a laptop for around 400 which I can hear.

Any ideas.

A:Any way to make laptop speakers louder?

Anyway to make LAPTOP speakers louder?

That's pretty common for laptops. But as long as you checked all the "volume" locations, that's about it as far as I know.

From the speaker icon in the system tray. To control panel audio section, make sure the pan is in the middle, that the speakers are set to stereo speakers, and the main volume slider is all the way. All this can be done from in there. But there is more then one location for volume. Also use the laptop's function keys to up the volume, as this can sometimes be sepparate from Windows control. And lastly the volume of the DVD playing software itself, may also be sepparate.

But as far as I know, there is no such thing as a software amp.

Hi guys,

I have a GTX 460 with a dual monitor setup and I'm using Windows Media Player Classic.

When I drag video from my main monitor to the secondary, the volume level jumps up. I like it louder and would like to set this up to happen on the main monitor as well. Any ideas as to what it could be? The settings in WMP Classic have the same volume/boost levels set so i don't know what would be causing this.

The speakers I have are 5.1 and connected to the back of the computer.

So I've had my laptop for about 3 years now and I started off with windows 7 and I don't know for how long I've had windows 10. So I've had a problem for a while now and it could've came with windows 10 I don't really remember, but the problem is that my sound changes for different applications and games. If i only have 1 game or app open then that will be normal, but if i open google chrome while playing the volume on google chrome will be lower than usual, and it doesnt sound like the sound is very high quality on the things thats not focused.
This is very annoying becuase if i talk to someone on discord and i minimize the discord window their voices will get lowered and i have to change the volume myself to make sure i can hear them. I have an astro a40 headset but I dont know if this has anything to do with it.
I just want the sound to always be the same so i don't have to change something whenever its not the focused thing, and then have to higher it when it is the focused one

Hello, tonight I upgraded to Windows 10 and began encountering a very strange problem with my audio. What happens is when an audio source starts playing sound, the the sound is louder than it should be - the actual volume in Windows does not change, the sound is just louder. It seems to be only the audio from that source that's louder, not any other sounds playing. This has happened when Flash sources like YouTube videos and Twitch streams load, and when I unpause music in foobar2000.

I can resolve it by simply moving the volume slider in Windows anywhere, then it will begin abiding by Windows's volume setting again. Even moving the volume up a notch will end up making it quieter from what it was. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling drivers all night, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

A:Audio louder than usual until volume is changed

I have the same problem after I downloaded Windows 10. Play media, pause it, wait a bit, resume, volume is way higher than it should but the number is the same. Quickly adjust it back and forth and it fixes it. I updated my sound driver to Realtek 6.0.1.7544 and it didn't fix it either.

A:Low Volume through Laptop Speakers

It could be a heat issue causing a component to work intermittently. Often times in electronics something will work when it's cool but stop working when it warms up or will not work when it's cool but then start working when it warms up. These can be some of the hardest problems to diagnose. It's not necessarily overheating, just normal temps causing things to expand and contract. It could be caused by a poor solder joint.If your drivers are good then it could be a hardware issue such as what I described above. If that's the case the fix is to replace the motherboard. Is the laptop still under warranty? If so, you would contact HP about it.

First off,this is my first post ever on this forum ( yay ) and i'm not too up to date with technology and the terminology that goes with it so you will most likely have to break some things down as simply as possible for me.

So basically i just bought a new set of logitech x-530 speakers which are amazing and all except for this one tiny problem.

Whenever i connect ANY pair of headphones or earbuds or w.e into it's headphone jack i can hear the sound just fine but i cannot control the volume using the dial.Basically it's like they are connected just fine but only to the extent that i can only hear sound but not control it.

(My own mind told me to first off try and update my sound drivers but you see i don't quite know how to do that ,i let the thing search for any available updates on its own but it always says the drivers are up to date which i don't really believe.)

Help would be appreciated.
 

A:Speakers volume control problem.

Are you sure the volume control for the speakers is suppose to control the headphones and not just the speakers?
Does it work to control the speaker volume?
If it is suppose to control the headphone volume as well then its going to be a hardware problem with the volume control dial or something else in the speakers and not anything on the PC, so updating the drivers isn't going to help. Once you plug the headphones and use the dial on the speakers the computer gives up the control - you can still control the master volume on the PC but the dial should work independently.

You can either try contacting Logitech for support to find out if your set is broken or wait for someone with the same or similar set that knows if the dial can control the headphone volume as well.

Good day,

I'm using a fairly new HP Mini netbook and ever since I got it I have this problem of low volume in plugged in headphones and speakers. The netbook speakers themselves are pretty fantastic, but if I plug in headphones or speakers, it seems that the computer lowers the volume substantially to the point that I can't even use speakers for listening to music or watching movies (on full blast, you might be able to make out speech on a film for example, but not from very far away; that's how low the volume is).

I've gone through everything I can think of, checked all the various levels in the volume mixer and audio hardware options, made sure everything is to the max, re-installed my IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver, all with no results. I also have tried out the speakers both with the Loudness Equalization feature enabled and disabled with no noticeable effects. I've also tested the computer with different sets of headphones/speakers and so it must be some properties of the computer that are the issue here.

I appreciate your help.

Hi, I bought a new headset today, identical to that of my sister, which is very loud ( in a good way). So, when I plugged the set to my speakers I was disappointed because it was lower than that of my sister's. But then I thought to plug it to front green panel of the unit and boom!!! the sound was crystal-clear as my sister's. The question is: why that happens and how can receive the same amount of volume from both inputs?

A:My headset has low volume when plugged in speakers

If you plug it into a jack on the speakers, the speaker system determines the volume. When you plug it into the headphone jack on the PC the sound chip and system volume control determine the volume.

The Impedance of the headset can also affect volume level.

A:Speakers very faint, even when volume is turned up all the way

H,mmm did you check the volume control on both the speakers and in the software? One or the other could be set to minimum. Cycle the volume control pot full down to full up on the speaker, maybe a dead spot in the pot. It can happen. Also you might have it full down and you think it is full up. Turn speakers On / Off. Remove and replug the speaker jack in the computer, making sure it is fully seated. Try a different software program to play via the speakers.

If all else fails try a second pair of speakers. That will allow you to isolate the problem to the speakers or in the computer.

Hey guys,I have a problem with the volume from my speakers. At a completely random time today, my speaker volume drastically decreased. Usually, when I turn the dial to my speakers up to 100%, the sound is extremely loud. Now, at 100%, the audio is significantly lower. When I plug in a headset into the front Audio port of my computer tower, the sound at 100% is lower than what it used to be as well.The speaker model is Emachines, SP-30A. The volume settings on my computer have not changed. I use Windows Vista, and I have verified that the volume levels are at 100%. The power source has not changed. Nor has the wiring changed either (I made sure that the wires running to the back of my computer are correct).Here is what I've done:Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware: Turned up clean.Ran AVG Free 2011: Turned up clean.Ran SpyBot Search And Destroy: Turned up clean.I have attempted to update my sound card driver, however it said it was already up to date.These facts led me to believe that it is not a virus; however I cannot be sure.If anyone could provide some help it would be greatly appreciated. I can't do anything involving audio with this crappy sound.

A:Beyond Fustrated! - Emachine speakers volume decrease!

The only thing that comes to mind straight off is that, depending on what audio setup the system is equipped with, there may be an option like "boost" buried somewhere maybe on an advanced tab in the audio properties, that may have got turned off somehow.

Hi,

Windows XP Home
Dell DIM4400
Insignia Amplified Stereo Speakers (2)
w/ Subwoofer

What I want to know is, at what setting to PERMANENTLY leave
the volume adjustment that is on the speakers.

I noticed I was cranking up the volume using the "little speaker" volume control in the System Tray, and then also noticed the volume setting/adjustment on the (right) speaker itself was only about half-way.

Question:
Better to turn the volume setting on the speakers "ALL THE WAY UP" and leave it there?
or, use up to the MAX setting on the computer audio volume and leave the speaker volume setting half-way or thereabouts?

Could cranking the volume to max on the speakers damage or shorten the life of the speakers?
Or, are most speaker systems "built to take it"?

Thank you!!

A:Best VOLUME setting for Stereo Desktop Speakers?

Not sure exactly but I have found that it works well if I have my computer volume set half way and then use the volume control on the actual speakers to increase or decrease the volume as required. I do this as I use a laptop and sometime my stereo speakers are not plugged in so don't really like full volume pumping out of my tiny laptop speakers. Would be interesting if someone has a definitive answer.
