One thing to check is that all the volume sliders are 'up' in alsmixer. Often the speaker/headhone or PCM channels are set lower.Other users prefer pulseaudio/veromix which I understand can add more gain.

HiRecently installed Arch on a HP ProBook 4330s. Initially sound was working perfectly, but now I'm having problems with the built-in speaker.Using alsamixer in the terminal, I can independently control the volume of the headphone jack and the speaker, but it seems like the speaker is linked to the headphone volume instead of the speaker volume.
Hello,I have laptop Asus N550JV.I installed alsa ant pulseaudio (alsa-utils and pulseaudio, nothing else, no pulseaudio-alsa plugin, because I noticed that it causes me more problems rather than reduces them.the problem is that I want to keep Master audio channel untouched.
