if i put 50% there the mic it's a bit "low" with volume and i have to 
spoke really near to it
(however sound is cleaner, lower but cleaner)

"front mic" works as the jack in the front of my laptop
no internal mic doesn't work at all.. and i don't know if there's one to 
be honest cause i never booted windows here

sorry i think i didn't understand what do you mean..
so the behavior is "normal"? or it isn't? or it is "fixable" in some way?
with my previous laptop i used to have only 1 capture device and to 
select if i want to use it only as playback, only as capture or both..

here i've to do this separately with 2 device.. it's not a big deal.. 
it's only strange

Standard sonori supportati : MIDI support

Supported sound standard: MIDI support

ok.. so i've no way to "record what I'm listening" right? (no way other 
that using a microphone off course)

oh ok :)
do you know how can i test subwoofer?
it seems active but if there's a way to actually "test" it would be nice
