    So I turned on my Mac tonight and without sound even playing the left speaker made this horrid noise and I knew right away the speaker was fried . Of course with luck my Mac is also out of warranty and yes I know its my fault that I didn't buy apple care.. never had a hardware issue with a Mac ever , my question is basically am I ****ed ? I googled this and weirdly I found a ton of people all this year with the same issue . sounds like it could be a hardware/software issue much like bootcamp was blowing out everyones speakers during launch . So will apple ever make exception repairs ??

    Just tragic that AppleCare is becoming ever more a mandatory purchase, not an option...

    Q-6

    speaker is about £20-30 on eBay, still cheaper than AppleCare
    I'm not sure what you did, but I had Windows 10 and my speakers are fine
