Is there any need to "baby" the internal speakers?

    Hi all. Just got my new iMac 27" and it flies! I had an i3 2010 27" iMac before. I was worried that I messed up my internal speakers a couple of days ago. Fortunately, it is just a Chrome error. I had just switched to using Chrome when setting up the new machine. Apparently there is a well documented (and unsolved) problem with Chrome where audio that is being played through a flash player, YouTube included, has an issue. To me, it sounds like you have blown your speakers. Well when I had first noticed that issue, it was right after playing BF4 for the first time on the iMac, and I played using the internal speakers instead of my headset to see how it sounded.

    So to condense that, I noticed Chrome's audio issue right after playing BF4 with audio through the internal speakers. I was worried for a little bit, but I have definitely ruled out the possibility that the speakers were messed up-- it's just a software problem with Chrome.

    However, that did get me to thinking about whether I should use the speakers for something with that much bass and at a higher volume. Could they be damaged from that? Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!

    Nah, I think you'll be fine. Especially since it's still under warranty lol. Really though unless you have them at max for a long period of time then it shouldn't have an issue. Even at max they probably would be ok.
