Or maybe remove --purge and reinstall alsa-utils.
Ok, I tried a little more. I went into Control Center/Multimedia System and selected different Outputs. The one in the photo gave me a little higher tone using the Test Button.
The DVD playback audio is sightly higher. I then downloaded using Synaptic, everything labeled Alsa. I have some other downloads not labeled Alsa but came up in the search.
Still not near enough audio.
At Max volume on the speakers, the audio should blast me.
