[phosh] boost pipewire volume beyond 100%?
#1
Hi,

My earpiece speaker broke after my Pinephone fell out of my jacket pocket. I bought a replacement speaker from aliexpress based on a post identifying compatible models but, even though it works, the volume is very low even at 100%.

With pulseaudio I would use pavucontrol to boost to 150%. Manjaro Phosh uses pipewire and pavucontrol doesn't work. Does anyone know what I can use to achieve the same result. Speaker is unusable as there is a massive echo so callers hear themselves, and I would like to be able to use the earpiece rather than having to use an earpiece - though that is the best solution, I think, once you've managed to untangle it, push in the earpieces and plug it in!

Command line would be fine, ideally something that survives reboot.

Thanks.

I did stumble across an app in Manjaro Phosh's software repository called "Tweaks." It has a toggle switch that boosts pipewires audio above 100% for me. Just warn you now that depending on your application the audio gets more distorted the louder you go. For calls it might work fine but for music you might want a better option.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.
