Is there a way, maybe even with root, to increase the maximum speaker volume?

I own a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, which are known for their crappy and quiet speaker. There are ways to replace the speaker with another one. But I'd like to know a generic, not device related, software based method to increase the maximum volume on Android (if there is one).

There is an app which can do it for you... Try the free one first, and if it works, then buy the full version :)



Have a great day :)

Was it the right solution for you? Like to know, and if isn't the right answer i like to search some more for you :) – dev0 Feb 14 '12 at 17:55
Well, Volume+ seems to need either a Cyanogen Mod or a MIUI ROM. That is both not available on my TPT. But I am aware that this may be only achieved on custom ROMs/Kernels and/or with root. I hadn't the time yet to test it. – Flow Feb 15 '12 at 19:13
It works well on my stock Galaxy Nexus... Sure you have read it correct? – dev0 Feb 16 '12 at 14:41
But i think you need root, but i'm not sure, since i always have root :) – dev0 Feb 16 '12 at 14:42

Try the 'DSP manager' application from cyanogen community.

Download application heredsp manager for stock ROM's
