For a simple scaling, see "lame --scale". This will make things louder 
but may cause clipping.

To get something better you may need to use an automatic gain control 
(e.g. see "agc" on http://aaron.boim.com/unix/audioRecording.html)
  or some dynamic range compression (e.g. "sox --compand ..." 
http://sox.sourceforge.net/ ). You'll need to experiment to see what 
works best for you. If you want a GUI tool, try audacity
