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.

Hello,since a few weeks my sound volume on Arch is very low but for me it became conscious now. The audio volume is at least half of standard ALSA, possible only a third. When I remove pulseaudio and pulseaudio-alsa and restart the system the volume is right. I use KDE SC 4.8.3 and PulseAudio 2.0 on Linux 3.3.6-1 but I can't say to you when the problem has occurred.
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on my MacBook 9 2 but my volume keys seem to be out of control. I set up the sound to 2.1 speakers like here:
problem with getting 2.1 speaker working under 12.04/unity/pulseaudio
The speakers are working and changing the volume by mouse is working. What's not working are my hotkeys.
Hi,I have strange behaviour of Pulseaudio after any updates. Every time when I login to KDE I have Built in audio 100% volume, also when play any system notification sound then change to 100% volume.After uninstall Pulseaudio with ALSA only is OK.Any idea please?
I have the same device on my desktop and audio levels are the same in Linux and winxp/win7. Using snd_hda_intel also in the kernel. lspci | grep -i Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)I am using Pulse-Audio with alsa libs. My speaker system is a Logitech X51 5.1 sound or something..
playing around with my new Nexus 5 I recognized a problem to control the volume of my external bluetooth loudspeaker.
First, the speaker connected normally as it used to with my GNex (JB 4.3). But with the Nexus 5 the volume seems to stay at maximum only. Pushing the volume buttons +/- of the phone shows up the volume control and I can see the volume going up and down.
