First, maybe mplayer is a bit "heavy stuff" for notification sounds.
What are these files? If they are *.wav, use "play %s" command, and if
they are *.mp3, use "madplay %s" or "mpg123 %s", as well as "ogg123 %s"
for *.ogg files. Check out the manpages for these programs if you
think you need further options.

Check the other volumes as well. PCM should be 100:100, too.
If vol == 100:100 and pcm == 10:10, it will be very silent. :-)

Do other applications (music and movie player, games etc.) play
louder sounds?

I'm not sure mine is better, don't mind. The guys on that list have
a lot of translational phantasy. :-)
