    i was attempting to watch a movie last night and the volume was to low

    So I started messing with the speaker properties in the control panel and was able to boost the percentage in the mixer from 96 to 100

    Also, which helped alot was to turn on loudness equalization in the ehancements tab of the speaker properties. I reduced the release time to short

    If anyone else can try these to confirm it makes the surface louder

    Not sure what you mean by boost the % in the mixer?
    But loudness equalization seemed quieter for me.

    I can confirm that this works. Google searched this very problem and found your post. Thank you very much for your tip. I really like my Surface. Wished the speakers were louder though.

    i have also been hitting configure on the speaker page and allowing full range on the speakers (it is in the wizard screen #2) i think that also helps

    This is awesome. Enabling the loudness equalization setting made my speakers IMMENSELY better. That was one of my biggest complaints with the Surface RT.

    Thanks so much for posting this!

    Clicking the loudness equalization box makes the sound go down. I use it on my media center pc all it does it keep all the sounds around the same level. It's mostly for video with spoken words vs music or those annoying TV programs and loud *** commercials.

    This is my second device, on the first one I did what I reported, my second one I did the configure and it helps

    It also seems to be app specific or the encoding of the video

    So I think there are some things we can do but I think the bad design is that the speakers point to the side, if you turn the device they are quite load
