I am running Kubuntu 18.04 LTS. As the title says, is there any way to increase the max speaker volume beyond 100% in KDE 5 without installing additional software like Kmix, Veromix, etc.?

In Gnome and Unity, the volume could be increased beyond 100% through the default System Settings which was very useful.


This is possible by accessing the Audio Volume widget's settings.

  • Right-click the Audio Volume widget and open settings. Audio Volume Settings
  • Open the General Tab.
  • Change max volume and volume step as per your needs.
  • That's it. Now, increasing volume through the volume keys lets you reach volume levels greater than 100%. img
