Volume amplification in XBMC

We’ve recently rolled out a new PILS image which appears to have locked out a useful setting in X-Box Media Centre (XBMC).  In the old image we were able to access the Audio Settings screen (shown below) so that we could adjust the volume amplification.  However the latest image doesn’t seem to allow this and I’d like to know if it’s possible to achieve the same via the underlying Ubuntu operating system.  We have full admin access to the OS but not the Ubuntu expertise to achieve this at the CLI.  

Any suggestions on how to do this from the CLI would be great.

You didn't add an image. What's a PILS image and why do you still have XBMC and not Kodi?

we are working with what we have from a supplier, we have to work with what is supplied rather than change the system

Can you provide at least a bit of information of what linux you are running?
XBMC is old name of KODI (Which means that your vendor sells something 2nd hand not updated for 3 years)

That would make sense as the image would have been developed 4 years ago, they are running Ubuntu 12.0.04.
There are Dell All in One PC's that have been built for a specific environment, that is all the information that i have.

Do you have the amixer command available on your image?

An example command:

amixer -D pulse sset Master 50%

In XBMC - play a random video
Go to sound settings - M on keyboard or bottom right button on Kore remote
top bar is volume slider, second bar is your friend, adjust top one to center, then second one so that it sounds about right, then roll down and set it as default for all videos, and volume adjustment will apply to all future videos. (KODI 16 here, long ago it started as XBMC 12 on ubuntu 12)

I;d try ubuntu 16 and http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_Kodi_for_Linux
should not do a big damage as you have image to restore at hand.
