Do you all understand that buzzfix has nothing to do with the volume
of sounds _you_ hear? If you cramp up the volume really high but the
handset speaker is still low it just means you have a unit with
useless caps (R3004/R3005 which are sometimes 1uF caps). There were
plenty of those. And no one can tell what hardware revisions
affected. Inability to get the handset speaker emit loud sound is a
clear sign. Just short those useless caps (0402 size iirc).
