Or “My speakers have far less volume than before and are so quite, how do I maximize and increase the sound level to make them loud again?”. Are you not getting a good solid sound volume from those puny little laptop speakers? Well if you’re running Windows XP or newer (Windows 7 instructions below) most laptops have a few sound adjustments that may make a big difference. My Macbook 13” Bootmodel with Boot Camp 3.3 had a poor low volume output level… these audio enhancements make a big difference. BTW, many have reported that updating the audio driver directly from Realtek or Cirrus Logic, but that didn’t work out for me, these did.
The type of enhancements (if any) are dependent on the sound chipset in your particular computer. The setting with the largest difference I’ve seen is to have the “Loudness Equalization” setting turned on.
