    so, i'm sure all of you know that the sound quality on macbooks suck. when i try to play anything at a loud volume it just sounds awful. i was wondering if there was a way to adjust the equalizer in itunes, or in volume controls that would make it sound better?

    Maybe the setting "small speakers"?
    Otherwise it all depends on which music you play

    Cut the very low parts of the bass and pump the mids a little that would be the only advice I could offer.

    The MacBook has some tiny speakers and Apple has tried to prevent blowing them by reducing the volume capability. You'll never fill a room with them. They're pretty much meant for personal listening and not to create a disco.

    With this in mind, quality is the goal and not high volume output. I use Perfect iTunes Equalizer Setting for all of my listening needs and it seems to do a pretty good job. Admittedly, I usually have my Sennheisers on when I what to rock out.

    Btw.. once in a while I even listen to other than Grateful Dead music :cool:
