The speakers on laptop computers are usually not very loud. There are some laptops out there that have good speakers and can put out some good volume but most consumer laptops are lacking in this area.
This doesn’t mean that all hope is lost! There is still a way for you to increase the volume of your laptop a little more. (Previously I wrote how to improve the text display on laptops )
– Windows Media Player – Make minor adjustments in the sound output quality using the graphic equalizer. Similar to where you change wmp skins.
– Using VLC Media Player – VLC is the best player for laptops. VLC is one, if not the, best media player ever created. It is lightweight, portable, and can play almost any media format even videos downloaded from Youtube. VLC doesnt require external, extra codecs to run. (Get VLC)
Do you know that you can increase the volume in your VLC player to 400% of its actual volume.
Generally this is quite enough to increase the laptop’s volume to the max. If want to increase the sound quality of the laptop speakers still more then use the equalizer settings.
– Click Extended Settings
– Use the Equalizer and Set it to “SKA”. (Use “SKA” for Movies & “Full Bass & Treble” for Songs)
This will ensure the max. audio optimization. These settings are sure to increase laptop volume & sound quality to a large extent.
