    i mostly listen to music when im in the shower (not like you really needed to know, just trying to set the scene)

    You could try raising the volume level of all your music files. You can do that using MP3Gain

    You're only going to be able to get as much noise as your speakers can handle, trying to push them too far will just result in horribly distorted noise. If your speakers are too quiet, maybe it's time for some new speakers..

    I've tried all sorts of non hardware ways of doing this, but, as previously mentioned you only end up distorting the sound. The only way is to route your output through an amplifier and let it rip.............

    thought you were talking about the movie there, heh.

    i recommend you use some sort of wave editing software (sound forge, wavelab, etc.) they can get pricey and are studio-quality, but they get the job done straight.
