Default Factory Alarm Sensitivity

Not sure if I posted this in the right spot.....
Anyway, is there a way for me to increase the alarm sensitivity on my gen1 xB WITHOUT taking it into the dealership? I want it sensitive enough for an old lady to fart next it and set it off.

IIRC, there's a box just behind the glovebox that has the sensitivity ****.

I guess it's more like a small dial...

Is it labeled at all? I'm guessing turning it to the right will increase it, correct?

Should be. I thought there were small numbers indicating the sensitivity.

Look at page 20 of the installation manual, it shows the sensitivity for the glass breakage sensor. Looks to me like it's mounted behind the glovebox.
