I just attempted to play my iTunes library on my MBP and the sound is very weak and filled with Bass, treble is non-existent...horrible. The whole thing requires the volume to be maxed out before i can even hear the tunes at decent level.

My PB is opposite however in that i never go beyond mid-volume..sometimes a tad higher but not even close to the level the MBP requires. Audio settings are identical on both machines as far as i can tell but the MBP is just *****.

Am i doing something wrong?

PS its a 2.16 15" MBP (refurb)

This might be of interest.
The MBP speakers just suck compared to the PB ones. Apple just had to hit the 1" casing size mark, resulting in a non-working partnership between the housing and the current MBP speakers.

Try changing the balance from left to right when playing music. Which is better? Left or right?
