Default I Want It Louder!!!

My volume is turned up on my speakers full as well as on the computer. Is there anyway of making it louder without having to replace my sound card?

New speakers will do that for you. I recommend these on a budget:

make sure that your music player (winamp, WMP, whatever) has sound turned up to the loudest. If you're using windows, make sure the sound adjustment is turned to the highest.

I find that realplayer is better than winamp, i just use the equalizer in realplayer and turn it all the way up. that gives me about 6%+ more sound.

Yeah but RealPlayer used to be good. I just think it takes up way too much resources now, plus with the fact that its gone to a RealOne player...eugghh hehe

I'd honestly say Winamp

A better amplifier / more speakers would be a good start...

AMD (or any other username you care to create) I thought you cared about this place? it was only a couple of hours ago you were boasting of your helpfull achievements, why are you ruining your good name nonw?).

I would just run it through your home stereo. Thats what i do. I get awesome sound. I need a better sound card though, i'm using my onboard audio. Wich gets good sound, but it uses up alot of your CPU Cycles.

Speakers are everything. I have a pair of really nice 3" full range speakers that sound awsome. They are up halfway, wave is almost up all the way, and master volume is up the smallest amout possible(the buttons on my comp control the master volume, it works best this way)

You never said what speakers you have, but I'm quite sure that if you have you're volume up, that they are the problem...

most PC speakers are <10W...

if you are looking to listen to music at volume then you can't really go wrong with putting it through the stereo... the speakers will be of a solid wood construction and the amp will be >30W usually...

Realplayer is one of the worst out there.. I hate it because a lot of the things I want to listen to (like online news) is in .rm format. Damn realplayer.

Well you should of bought a set of Logitech Z-5500.

AMD ZEN has been banned because he violated rules.

try iTunes and in the equalizer, turn up the pre-amp slider. mind you, it will become a little crackly if you turn it all the way up, but i'm running it at around +6db.... you just have to try it with your set up.
