Note: Don't tell me to increase my laptop sound because it is already full and so of youtube's and any other downloaded media's file.

    Does it have a sub woofer? – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jun 20 '18 at 19:46

  • With my old Dell Inspiron I had to configure it specially in Linux to utilize the Sub-Woofer whereas in Windows it's automatic. My new Dell also has a subwoofer but I haven't bothered because external monitor is piped into TV system with 100 watt subwoofer. Here's the link for the old Inspiron: askubuntu.com/questions/211201/… – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jun 20 '18 at 22:33

Go to the sound settings, turn up application volume to max or enable sound over-amplification and be happy with very loud sound.
