    stupid question but if this app lets you turn the volume up past the factory presets dont you run/increase the risk of blowing out your speakers :confused:

    I guess its just an equalizing software. In that case. No.

    Thanks GGJstudios.

    I am surprised only one person has tried it.

    Yea I'm wondering if this wouldn't make it more likely for your speakers to be blown?

    I just downloaded their 7 day trial on my 2011 MBP. WOW!!! It works. I had to back off on the volume.

    it only seems logical that it would make it more likely to blow. apple probably put a meaningful limit on speaker volume. after all they are tiny little speakers. get some good headphones or speakers. i use bose headphones to watch tv and movies on my mbp because i can hear more (i.e. higher quality) than those crappy laptop speakers

    and don't tell me you cant afford them, you just bought a macbook pro

    It doesn't increase volume enough to damage the speakers, but it does help. I have headphones and external speakers, but neither will help when you're traveling and want multiple people to hear something on your MBP.

    Using it on both MBP and iMac and it works well.. although with the boom on I rarely go above 1/2 volume level..

    Also, all those who question if it could damage the system may have a point. I asked myself whether it could.. But so far.. all good (fingers crossed)..

    I believe the secret is in the reasonable use.

    That works pretty well. Will use my 7 day trial but don't see myself paying for it though.
