Why are my speakers too loud?

Jonathan Nash February 7, 2012

USB speakers too loud, even at level 1. Especially with Windows Media Center. Using Windows 7 Home Professional. Speakers are Logitech S-150. Others have the same problem, but Logitech isn’t helping with solution (see:

    have you tried setting your speakers to say 100% (turn the volume controller on your speakers to the max) and then setting your system sound to say 10-20? 
    And try this as well: go to Control Panel->Sound, click on Communications tab and check Do Nothing, so that the system does not interfere with its boring "feature" of normalizing the volume all the time.

    have you tried to uninstall sound driver-reboot-let windows to install a new driver.
    To uninstall is from device manager.
