Sonos Voice Control answer volume too loud

Hello,

 

I’m using SVC on the Roam. Any answer given by SVC is (subjectively) twice as loud as the actual media volume. This makes it extremely disturbing and unusable for me because it’s basically yelling to the whole neighborhood about my Sonos setup status… making me go to great lengths to actively not use it.

 

What’s the solution here?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

(P.S. this goes somewhat hand in hand with a different topic of mine, discussing the need to not have answers at all.)

The volume for SVC is tied to the volume for the speaker. Only way for SVC to be quieter is to lower the volume.

 

That would make sense if both the media and the voice had around the same dB, but at least on my end it’s so far off that to get a reasonable voice volume, I’d practically have to lower the Roam volume to a level close to zero.

 

(Not bashing your answer, just ranting about the status quo.)
