When I fly in the front row on an all-economy A320, I can very clearly hear the autopilot disconnect sound shortly before landing.

Can passengers in the cabin also hear other warnings like EGPWS (Terrain!), TCAS (Descend, descend!) or others?

On the Airbus even with O2 masks, loudspeakers aural alarms level ( normal or abnormal) can’t be adjusted by the crew, these are such as ground proximity alarms or stall alarm, or engine fire, degradation in autoland or autopilot disconnect, single amber gong, repetitive red gongs, altitude hold deviation, altitude decrements at flare etc

As these loudspeakers sound levels are not adjustable, and as the cockpit is not sound proof, these aurals are heard in the very front rows.
