Alsa volume restriction


hello,

I just recently bought a new laptop and i noticed that the sound that is produced by alsa is much to loud for my boxes. I think that my boxes don't very much like this excessive sound. So i want to ask if there is a way to restrict the sound volume with alsa.

Thank you.

run

alsamixer, turn the volumes down to a suitable level, then run

alsactl store, to save the settings across a reboot.
good luck.

ok,

thank you for the fast reply. I tried what you opted. However doing this didn't prevent me to raise the volume to much (in gnome, as normal user). So i figure that "alsactl store" is only for setting the default and not to limit the sound volume.
