    Messing around with the audio trying to improve it to a more decent state, I was able to find a place where I’m happy with, or at least as happy as you can be with the poor speakers this tablet has. For reference I do manage to understand with sufficient clarity at 70 volume. First the usual disclaimer, you are on your own, I am not responsible for any problems that might arise (I’ll try to help though)
    For this you will need DFX software: http://www.fxsound.com/dfx/download.php First you will need to turn on one config inside your audio settings.Right click the taskbar audio icon, select speakers properties, enhancements tab. There, enable loudness equalization as shown in the image
    Then install DFX software, and enable it. Depending on what you are hearing you may need to change between both music modes and speech option available. 

    Depending on what you are going to hear choose one option or other, but as usual your mileage may vary since they are different modes. I did not try messing around with DFX Audio options too much, mostly using defaults, but there may be some extra room for improvement there. But with defaults you should notice a decent loudness improvement over the default setting, making it at least usable on slightly noisy environments. Nothing to write home about, but quite pleased with it. And sorry if my post formatting sucks :/

    You can use the Realtek audio manager to set the loudness equalization, and maybe the audio enhancements. I know there are a few EQ presets for different types of music genres in the manager somewhere

    But for what I’ve tried with them, they don’t “improve” audio loudness or quality, they just improve a small bit of the audio, while butchering every other aspect of it, which is why I don’t recommend them. BUt i you find them good enough for your purposes, power to you.

    You may try app called Equalizer APO. It can be downloaded from official repository here:

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/

    After running the application all you need is setting Preamplification to 5-10 dB (marked red in attachment).

    I also use it to improve sound quality when using different headphones. That’s why I have several Equalizer presets defined.

    I was wondering… did anyone update the Realtek audio driver? There’s a new version from January.

    Just updated. Can’t notice any difference, still very quiet. I’m using SRS Audio Sandbox to boost volume & bass a little.

    Maybe it’s not worth the hassle.

    If you say so, I still have the drivers I downloaded for my desktop and laptop. I’ll give it a try.
