Is there a term (scientific or musical) for that thing where you turn up the volume on your headphones (or whatever) and suddenly you can hear something that you couldn't hear at all at the lower volume? Like, "Oh, there's bells in there. I had no idea."
Hi MeFi, My lights were left running on my Honda Civic 2008 and the battery drained. After a jump from AAA, the car audio hasn't been the same. To clarify.. it sounds much much louder. For example, I used to be able to turn it up to Level 30, right now if I go over Level 5 it sounds extremely loud and bass is very distorted. What could it be? Did battery jump somehow fry my speakers/receiver? Thanks for your help!
Can I rig some sort of home-made equalizer between my TV, speakers and PS3? Other ideas as to changing the levels of frequency ranges also welcome. [more inside]

So I was listening to the sound check for the upcoming U2 concert yesterday from my house, which is just over 2km from the stadium. I could tell that the sound was immensely loud at the source even though it wasn't rattling my windows or anything. How did I know it was a huge sound at a distance rather than coming from nearby? What auditory cues tell us this?
I have a few Macbook Pro systems at work that we've installed Windows XP via Bootcamp on. We've done this with previous Macbook models in the past. This time, however, there is an audio problem: the audio on the XP side is so low it's close to non-existent. Is anyone familiar with this problem? Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

Is it possible to control the volume of individual Windows applications (or Firefox windows/tabs?) Also, is it possible to boost the volume of (e.g.) a YouTube video?
How do I learn to sneeze softly?
I need to make my laptop's speakers go to 11. [more inside]
Winamp lowers the volume after every song. So, I'm constantly turning it all the way back up. How do I get it to stop that? They may be trying to save my ears, but my headphones are dying and I have a slight hearing problem. I listen to a song, and the next one is suddenly just a whisper. So frustrating.
