    Do they take awhile before the blow and become useless? Are they easy to replace?

    Uh, what? I think in 10 years of owning laptops, I've never blown a speaker. What could you be doing to them?!

    I've blown one on a previous laptop, or I blew the soundcard, I can't remember, but either way the right speaker did not work.

    imagine it now, replace your MBP speakers with a 1" Alpine, and external AMP :)

    not.

    the Mac speakers probably dont get enough power to blow, they are tiny.

    Like everyone's said, you can't blow the speakers.

    Actually a lack of amplifier power is what causes most speakers to blow, not too much power. If an amp doesn't have enough juice it can start putting out distortion instead of good normal sinewaves. Distortion is what kills the speaker itself, and that's the amp's fault.

    It's definitely possible if you push things into distortion long enough. "How long" is an exercise left to the reader. My guess is "not long".
