So I have this circuitry


Purpose is to connect the soundcard with a telephone to also play computer generated samples over phone.

It works with one drawback: The Headset's speaker is low volume. How to boost the Headset's speaker's volume? When picking up the telephone handset the volume is high enough but using the Headset's speaker it isn't.

Pity this question goes unanswered for such a long time. :-)

Obviously, the easiest way to bust the volume is to buy a cheap, specialty phone amplifier, such as those used by people with weaker hearing.
