Question Volume on the Galaxy S Wifi 4

Is their anyway to increase the volume on the Galaxy S Wifi 4 ?

My player will not go past 30 which is not that loud. Their seems to be some sort of volume limiter on it.

root it then flash a custom kernel (most recent is Terrasilent 1.3.5) then install Voodoo Sound (you can't use voodoo unless you have a kernel that supports it, hence why you do the kernel first). Now (once you configure voodoo sound) you can max it out (atleast the headphones) this is how loud my headphones will get on my 4.0 with this configuration.

Also 30 is the normal MAX volume there are no numbers above it, just be sure you have a 4.0 and NOT a 4.2 (common mistake)

also there is a setting in the Poweramp EQ (far left Master slider) that can be maxxed to add a little more but you'll be more prone to distortion if you go that route.

My cowon player stopped at 30 but if you took the volume limiter off it, it would go up to 40.

30 is the end of the scale on samsung but with voodoo sound it gives access to both the digital and analog "amps" and for the record the volume level in that video hurts my ears (if I try putting on the headphones) it's so loud and I'm no stranger to loud music, I have 2 12's in what used to be my backseat in my car.

trust me if voodoo sound isn't enough for you then you must be clinically deaf or there is something wrong with your headphones.

Yes I agree. I am very suprised if anything by how loud the volume is with the player jyst stock. I used to have an aiwa portable cd player back in the 90's that had almost no volume at all. It was horrible.

FYI, if your using Poweramp be sure to reboot the player after installing it or it doesn't get loud, atleast this has been my experience lately.
