Correction on AO's reply. Every 3 db increase doubles the perceived loudness, not every 10 db.
So +3 db means twice as loud. +6 db means 4 times as loud, +9 db is 8 times and +12 db is 16 times.
Sorry this doesn't actually reply the asker's question.

No, db is a logarithmic scale. An increase of 10 db is about equivalent to twice the perceived loudness.

Well, it doesn't make it 10x louder, it increases the decibeles of the built in speaker by 10. This is done by channeling the sound pressure that the speaker creates into a wave guide that naturally increases the volume of the sound. Volume, as in space equals volume, as in sound.
