    Sometimes if the speaker doesn't sit perfectly in its slot the volume sounds low. The plastic shell actually works as an amplifier if the speaker is in the proper position.

    You're not supposed to remove the housing at all. The housing helps the speaker sound louder. If the speaker doesn't sit flush in the housing it will sound low.

    Could it be just a bad speaker itself because with or with the housing still low sound?
