Question [Q] Increase kindle headset volume on CM 11?

Currently I have my kindle hooked up to my 5.1 system and the sound is horribly low. I have the kindle turned up to 100% and id have to turn my system up at least 20 to hear it ( i normally keep it on 2-3 and it is very loud from my pc ), the issue is sometimes i forget that i was listing to music on the kindle and get sound shocked when i turn on the pc and windows is 10x louder than it normally is.

In short, i don't plan to use a headset with the kindle so turning up the sound internally would be very useful for me, is there a way to do so?

What I have tried:
-3rd party apps from the app store to boost sound, none seemed to work.

also tried:

but i was unable to locate the correct file, not sure if it is due to cm11? guess its only for sg3?

Edit: Solved

It was under:
Device/ect/ "mixer_paths.xml"
ended up changing:
<ctl name="Digital Playback Volume" value="100"/> ( original 95)
<ctl name="Headpone Volume" value="126"/> ( original was 116 or so )

Personally I would recommend viper4android over raising that value because it has quality controls for raising the audio and you can mess with adding all of bass and such since you mentioned you had it on surround sound. Raising that value can make the sound coming from the kindle sound how should I put it, like there's to much pre-amp I guess is one way to look at it, basically gives it that annoying static sound like it was boosted too much.

Sorry I don't have a link handy, just search it on Google and download it from the xda forum post, don't use a version in the google play market if its there because I think its old last I checked.
