Requirements:

1. Root

2. X-plore or any other file manager with root access

Procedure:

1. Extract and replace "mixer_paths.xml" in root/system/etc

2. Change the permissions to rw-r--r--

3. Restart your mobile

Note:

I won't be responsible if anything goes wrong.
I'm also providing the stock xml file if you want to revert back to the original settings.
Thanks to AndroPlus for providing custom kernel & recovery for the Z5P Dual.

***Version 2 added with sound from both speakers in speaker mode during a voice call***

As soon as I want to go full volume the music stops. I use music player app with podcast and I let the music play as soon as the aux cable plugs in.

I haven't tested it with the aux cable. The in built speaker & the headphones are working fine.

It seems like it goes off automatically because of security? Maybe because the device "thinks" I'm using headphones and it will damage my ears when I set the volume this high. I'm using the aux cable for in my car.

Yes, maybe so. What happens if you don't turn it up to the full volume, I mean at 90 percent volume.

@arjun.arora I just compared the original file mixer_paths.xml with your modded mixer_paths.xml, and didn't find any differences.
Can you point out what you edited ?

Best Regard's

Hi, I've just increased the volume of the main speaker as well as the headphones.. Kindly try it out and revert back, also backup your original mixer_paths file before replacing it..

i just tested your soundmod, i think the speaker's have a hardware-security-function because at full volume the speaker's are about 2 sec loud and then somehow again a bit more quiet something like a protecting feature, can't say if it is software-limited or hardware-limited.
