    What I noticed is, that now the overall sound volume is much lower. Is there a way to make the whole sound louder as well?
    I played around with the equalizer but couldn't make the volume louder.
    I don't have a surround configuration, so I'm not certain if there's a better way to solve this problem. The point of equalizer used by this script is not to redistribute volume across speakers.

    Anyway, the best way to boost sound is to enable "flat-volumes" in PulseAudio, which will ensure that equalized volume is just as loud as regular audio (at least on my system). Here's the easiest way:

    $ sed 's/flat-volumes = no/flat-volumes = yes/g' /etc/pulse/daemon.conf >~/.pulse/daemon.conf; pkill pulseaudio
    Note that the above command will (necessarily) force PulseAudio to restart, so any running sound applications will also need to be restarted.
