    So I recently have been experiencing speaker distortion when watching videos or listening to music through my speakers on my macbook pro retina (15 inch) it just started randomly and I can hear it when not even on maximum volume but when it is its bad it sounds like a buzzing noise...

    I do have applecare but anything I can try before than?

    Since itll be hard to show them this in the store...

    Speaker distortion could mean the cone is damaged, i doubt they would warranty it citing that loud volumes or specifically vlc could damage it but worth a try.

    ouch! Well you can take it over to apple and have them look at it, if they warranty it then great if not i doubt it would be a bomb.

    By the way even mine distorts at high volumes.

    Maybe its normal then cause its only when things have a lot of treble like some female voices and stuff, can you check and see if the "funk" notification in the sound settings has a crackle if all the way up

    I know this is an old thread, but i am just wondering, when you say you put the volume to 200%, what is your macbook's volume? is it 100%?

    let say i do the same thing, but i put my macbook volume at 20% or 50%, will it damage my macbook speaker? thanks.
