Hooked up my 2021 kit and the game plays fine, but my volume is super low coming out of 2 different sets of external speakers. I can hear everything, but even with speaker volume cranked all the way up, it's very low volume. Any ideas?

Yes, external powered speakers with 2 different 3.5 cables

Quoted from Robotworkshop:

Are they amplified speakers? Did you use different audio cables with the different speakers. I have a sound bar sitting on top of the machine for running the new code. Internal speaker for original sounds.

Quoted from DickHamill:

In addition to Robotworkshop 's advice, I would also power everything up and, while in attract mode, hit the test button on the WAV Trigger. That will play one of the samples from the SD card. If the volume is low there, it's some problem with the WAV trigger, the jack, or down stream.
The documentation for Meteor has a picture of the solder pad jumper that Robotworkshop mentioned:

Also check setting 14, which I think should be set to 5 (sounds and music).

So, the first set of speakers were not externally powered. The 2nd set, I had the speakers plugged into the wrong jack. It is now working great! Thanks for the help and Merry Christmas!! The sound package is amazing!!!
