Increasing the "bass" and "treble" in the sound settings increases the miniumum master volume.
For example, if I increased the bass be 6dB, then, -
56dB in the master volume will actually be -50dB (I think it's directly related in this way). If was then to increase the treble by 5dB, then -56dB in the master volume would now be -45dB (because bass was increased by 6 and 56-6-5=45).
Also, on another note, when increasing/decreasing bass/treble, the only difference I notice is a change in overall volume anyways, not a change to the bass or treble frequencies!
Doing some research on how dB is measured (wikipedia and physics knowledge may help developers to understand)
(it's logarithmic where dB level = 10 log (intensity level)/(reference intensity level) where the reference level is the minimum intensity level of the audio device)
may improve the accuracy and functionality of the sound volume adjusting feature.
