I haven't managed to find another thread about this problem, so here it goes.

I have a Macbook Pro (unibody) that's still under warranty. Yesterday while I was watching a TV show online, suddenly the volume of my speakers went down and they no longer had bass. After rebooting, making sure my software was updated, plugged/unplugged headphones etc, the speakers still sound like this. The sound is very quiet and tinny.

Has anyone had a similar problem? If so, any solutions?

Thanks!

That wouldn't make much sense, because I don't blare anything on the laptop. Also, my old macbook pro, which I still have, has speakers that work perfectly after 3+ years.

You don't have to have the speakers on high to blow one. It could be a defect or any number of reasons.

This actually happened to me I started up a movie heard a loud pop, and my reaction was just "AHH SH*T!" I thought there is a small chance its a software thing and rebooted, and bam I had bass again. I have no idea what caused it but something did. I would recommend trying a time machine backup from a previous date if you have one. And if that doesn't fix it bring it to the Apple Store and they will hopefully replace it for free. I say that because you don't typically hear of this happening on MBP's it really seems like they have limited the volume so that you can't blow the speakers.

I was just hoping I wouldn't have to run to the Apple Store...it's over an hour away, ugh. Oh, well! Thanks!
