    Since moving from my home office to a real office I've had to make do with the built in speakers on my generic monitor and quite frankly they are worse than rubbish. I used to run the sound direct to my pro sound set up and while that hasn't moved to the office I would like to enhance the sound. I really need to be able to boost the bass and overall output to improve the audio from the machine and I remember there was a great utility called Boom but it is now intel only and only for modern Mac OS X so does anyone know an alternative, open source or freeware if possible?

    How about Boom 1 itself for Leopard? :D

    Internet Wayback Machine is your friend! :D

    Click on the "Try" link there at the bottom left. The link works. :D

    P.S. If the link to the webpage in this post does not work (seems to not for me, even though I have another tab open to it) then download from my Dropbox.

    I had no clue Boom was universal/Leopard compatible. I used it on my MBP until it didn't play nice with my Mountain Lion install and didn't let my MBP go into sleep mode.

    This is why I search for stuff. ;)

    That's how I found out the first few Fluid betas were universal despite them not being advertised as such.

    Thanks for the link Erik! I had been looking for Boom 1 for a while, but every link was dead
