Overly LOUD Waratah Train Announcements

I made a complaint, and they said that all speakers are checked prior to running. I'm sure this is done, but for some reason the button, knob or lever for volume control is magically or accidentally adjusted:

Similarly, the Doors Closing Announcement is disproportionally loud compared to the next/this stop announcements:

Wow they're very different sounds especially on the last one.

I lived above St Leonards Train station for a while and some days they'd start loud speakers from 5am, after a few complaints they changed it to platform announcements only. But occasionally often on a Saturday or Sunday morning all the speakers would be turned on. You could never sleep on those mornings.
