    Which Mac do you have? Portable/Smaller Macs just don't have room for big speakers. Have you considered buying external speakers?

    I generally find that the speakers in my MacBook Pro aren't too bad, and the MacBook's are even better.

    If you want a really good sounding portable speaker, then the best is the Tivoli iPal. I have one and use it regularly with my MacBook Pro. At £130 it is quite a lot, but it's one of the most fantastic portable speakers I've ever heard! It also has radio in it...

    Shame on Apple my arse. Are the speakers turned up? The MacBooks have two small speakers, right and left, that point towards the screen and reflect back towards the listener. Make sure both of them are working. They are loud enough for use in a quiet room - all you need from a laptop. If you need thumping sound you plug in some external speakers, there are a myriad of choices for external speakers.

    The MacBook is a small, highly portable laptop, it has to make compromises somewhere to achieve it's weight and footprint. The MacBook Pro is larger and is designed more as a desktop replacement - as such they have more and bigger speakers but even then, for good sound you plug in speakers.

    Have you played with the volume? What apps are you using? Keep in mind that iTunes has its own volume control, for instance.

    If you take apart the macbook, you'll see three speakers - there's one pretty much right under the 8 key. They're very small, but you can see them on the ifixit guide...
