Ehh, help with the IPA notation of a particular consonant, please?

In my perennial linguistic experiment, Mierii [mi.@.'ri:], I have a distinction
between 'strong' and 'weak' consonants--the stops are simple enough, in that
the 'strong' consonants are glottalized and the 'weak' consonants not. But to
throw a monkey wrench into the system, I've a contrast between a strong and
weak [s]. Strong [s] is pronounced with a lot more force and I think a touch of
pharyngealization (at least, it feels like the pharynx is involved when I
pronounce it). Is there a specific IPA symbol for increased 'oomph' in a
consonant? [s_?\_h] for strong [s], maybe?

Doesn't our dear Maggel have something like this?
