    Have dual 2.0 Powermac G5 with OSX 10.4.3. I have Logitech Digital Surround speakers attached via optical wire. They sound great but at low volume I can hear the built in Powermac speaker which sounds like crap.

    How do I disable the built in speaker so I only hear the Logitech's??

    There's probably a way to do it in software, but I don't know off the top of my head. It's really easy to open a PM up and disconnect the internal speaker though.

    Just a daft question, but where is the optical wire connected to on your Mac?

    Its not much help I know. I wouldn't recommend you disconnect the internal speaker as the sound card need the electrical resitance provided by the speaker to function. I will have a think about a solution for you

    edit added.... you could always plug in head phones into the head phones socket and put the ear shells together to mute the sound
