Nope, only the iMac and PowerMac. Doesn't really matter. The Pro Speakers arent that great anyways. Sure they sound great but they do have their limits. iSub may be nice but for the money you could get much better. Unless you want matching computer and accesories. Basically with the Pro Speakers you are paying for the logo. I mean come one, a single button apple mouse for 60 dollars, i love my 3 button scroll optical microsoft mouse that costs me 5.Originally posted by beez7777
i don't see why the iSub wouldn't work, it's usb. as for the pro speakers, i'm not sure if the powerbooks hav the pro speaker minijack. i'm pretty sure they do, but could anyone verify this?
Dont know if you were talking to me or not. Actuall on both of my macs i dont have the pro speakers. But we do have them on our imac display at my parents apple store. actually I am really impressed by the sound thos little things make, but they do have their limits. i tell customers they want to invest in some soundsticks or creature speakers because they contain more sound. i also reccomend some other brands that do not match the computer. hell, i even have a 5.1 and sub system from altec lansing that i got for 60 dollars from my audigy drive. here is a question though, i need your guys help. Do the creatures sound good, i haven ever listened to them. I think I am going to convince my mom to tak our newly recieved creatures out of the box and connect it to our display ibook. Just need some output. I think they would look good next to an ibook just because the look really awesome and eye catching. please let me know. thanksOriginally posted by BenderBot1138
some good points though iJon... I use the Sound Sticks. they'll cost about 60 dollars more than the Pro Speaker/iSub combo, but you'll get amazing performance from 44 Hz to 20 kHz. They work perfectly with the Powerbook line (and many other Macs).
I'm guessing you own Pro Speakers already and are using them with your minijack? If that's the case, then you should be able to add an iSub, but be sure to check here for more info about why - there's bound to be someone in the know about why in the next couple posts here. If you're just contemplating a combined purchase of Pro Speakers with an iSub to work with your Powerbook, consider going the SoundSticks Route. A few more dollars, but your friends and family will definitly go oooooo as you produce amazing sound quality and power on your Powerbook.
Above all, make sure the speakers you choose are recommended by Apple and meet Apple's Specifications.
Human hearing is capable of usefully hearing sounds from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Sounds above 90 db can cause permanent hearing loss through mechanical damage to to the inner ear.
