Feature Request: Separate Minimum Volume for (Alexa) Voice Assist

I’ve just purchased a Beam (Gen2) and Sub Mini only to find that the Alexa voice assistant is unusable.  It’s far to low in volume to be heard when I have the TV (via eARC) at a reasonable level.  The only way I can hear what Alexa is saying is to turn up the volume so loud that it’s then inappropriate.  The volume differential is between the TV output and Alexa is massive!

Very surprised and also disappointed, as I had hoped to make extensive use of Alexa since it’s marketed so heavily, but is unusable (for me) in its current state.  While a relatively small issue, had I have known I would have not purchased. 🙁 Thanks.
