Turn up the volume. ;D
Sorry, but that's a quite esoteric question. OpenMPT doesn't care whether you use headphones, hifi equipment or whatever. My only suspicion right now are sound processing effects in your sound card driver or the sound sound effects that Windows supports natively. One of them is a compressor, so it's possible that this is only enabled for headphones but not speakers with your Windows configuration. Please check in the system control panel whether those effects are enabled.

Not sure how to interpret that emotion. Did you have problems with ASIO? OpenMPT should work best with an ASIO driver, and it should not be affected by the operating system effects then, as they should actually be bypassed.

If your soundcard drivers natively supports ASIO, and you have a normalize function on your soundcard (example: the Creative X-Fi range), then it will also work with ASIO. Luckily this setting is easily changed if the drivers are properly installed and the mixer software is too.
