Question Alarm signal on LOWRANCE HDS TOUCH screen

My boat is equipped with a LOWRANCE HDS TOUCH 12 screen supporting electronic chart, GPS, AIS, Depth sounder, radar, NMEA 20000 , NMEA 0184, etc...,
It can be programmed to sound an alarm for a variety of conditions . eg: depth, wind, anchor watch, etc...
However, the alarm sound is far to weak to wake me up.
Is it possible to adjust the strength of the alarm signal ?

The vendor of this equipment is unclear about such a possibility and suggest I return the equipment for service , which is most unpractical.

Do you have any relevant experience with this equipment ?
