    It only happens on certain notes...for ex. i produce music in a program called fl studio on bootcamp. I get rattle on certain notes I hit (speaker makes buzzing sound). However, when I'm listening to music most of the time.. I don't get this issue. Anyone else getting a buzzing/distortion type sound coming from their MBP unibody speaker at certain notes? Is this normal?

    For ex. I hear this distortion coming from my speaker when watching some videos on youtube, etc.

    anyone getting speaker rattle on the right side when the first note hits in this video on their macbook pro (at 80-90% maxed out volume)?

    Hi, it the same case for me.. I get a buzzing sound mainly from my right speaker.. I have the new Unibody MBPro BTW... so its quite common and when I'm listening to music I usually dont get it.. best thing is to ignore it as its common..

    Its distortion. All speakers get some sort of distortion at different frequencies and/or volume levels. Better speakers don't have as much distortion, but since the speakers in laptops are usually not great, you'll have more distortion.

    EDIT: Maybe yours is defective. Check out this thread I saw http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1851271&tstart=15
