How to manually increase system volume?

I have a hard time hearing, my volume on both my system and headset are all the way up, but everything is still quiet to me, so I need to increase my system volume past the maximums set in the gnome GUI settings.
Is this something that I can do?

Maybe attach an external amplified speaker system or use amplified headphones?

i was wondering if there was a more like command line option, like override how loud it can be, but if that’s not an option I guess ill have to get something like that.

You might be able to use something like pavuctl but there are definite hardware limits on what can be done, including distortion if pushing things to the limits.
