    It's one of the major reasons I rooted.

    You have to use system-wide equalizer, which is present for example in Cyanogenmod ROMs. You can also install it (I don't know if this works also on Gingerbread, but you can try it, there is also guide how to uninstall it) following this guide (first link - external, second - xda guide and download, you need to be registered on xda to download) :

    And this works on the Thunderbolt? Is it present on any sense roms or will I need to do this everytime I flash a different sense rom?

    Also, one person said they installed from clockwork recovery instead of using adb. Can that be done? It seems like it would be much simpler.

    No, DSP equalizer is not present in any Sense ROM, it's made just for rooted phones and, AFAIK installed just in Cyanogenmod (think so). Of course if you flash some other ROM or HTC delivers OTA update with changed audiolibrary, it will overwrite this and you have to apply it again.
    This DSP equalizer works on any Froyo ROM, you have to test it on your phone and see, if it works (I don't know if it works on Gingebread).
    It can be installed from Clockworkmod-recovery, this is signed zip update which can be flashed also this way. The described way is easier in case the equalizer or changed audio library doesn't work, it's easy to restore the old one. If you flash it in Clockworkmod, you have to make nand-backup (5 mins) and if something goes wrong restore it again (another 5 mins).

    That's great. I prefer to just wait the extra time for clockwork; that way I don't really have to know what I'm doing.

    Install just like any other zip in CWM. Just do not wipe data before the flash. It does work in GB, I personally have not used it for the external speaker before only headphones but it functions in GB as well as it does in Froyo.

    Wouldn't install. I think the zip might be out of date or something.

    I'm a drifter.. here and there.
    Download Volume+ from the market. Its amazing. It REALLY ramps up the volume, with options for Speaker, Headset, Bluetooth, and calling. Everyone I've recommended it to loves it.
