xset b 100?
Does that set the bell/beep volume at a hundred percent?
The man page says
If only one numerical parameter is given, the bell volume will be set to that
value, as a percentage of its maximum.
A second numerical value would set the pitch in hertz (unrelated to car rentals).
A third would set the duration in milliseconds.
Whether this is the way to skin this cat I don't know, but something to try maybe.
I see in another of your emails that you've found speaker-test.
Here are my bell values from 'xset -q':
bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100

The boys at first were very polite about my medals and asked me what I had done
to get them. I showed them the papers, which were written in very beautiful
language and full of fratellanza and abnegazione, but which really said, with
the adjectives removed, that I had been given the medals because I was
an American. - "Another Country"
