external mini speakers plugged into the headphone socket as bluetooth speakers will suffer drop outs due to sharing the aerial with wifi and not sure if any usb speakers work (aside from which they will drain the batteries)

there are a few eq apps on the market (some free) found tweakign the levels can get a bit more out of the internal speakers

the obvious answer is as IanTurner said just add an external speaker

If you search the forum for threads on Vega sound/replacing blown speakers you will sooner or later come across a picture of the Vega's speakers. There is no way that these speakers can produce either a decent volume or quality. You can improve things a little by using a music player like PowerAmp (I think it has a free trial period) that has an Equalizer with a Gain control. However, pushing the gain up will quickly produce clipping.

Ian Turner is right; use external speakers (or good quality earphones). I use a pair of X-Mini II self-powered collapsible speakers with an audio splitter cable which give a surprisingly good bass response for their size.

Those are the ones I have as I bought one to see if it was any good. The stereo versions (X-mini Max II) with a common volume control might be better though some comments suggest there's an older version of those without a volume control !!!
Note that if the volume is high and with some bass they start travelling across the table :D

Indeed they do. I can't be bothered with 2 volume controls so I leave cranked mine up to the max. and use the Vega's volume control. You can get away with this on these speakers because they use a PWM (pulse width modulation) or Class-D amplifier which has negligible distortion even at max. volume. This is also the reason why they last so long before you have to recharge them.
