ok bought a 2006 macbook pro and the first thing i noticed is the speakers are bad, in fact i could hardly hear them. used VLC and boosted to 238%, could hear them until i blew out the right one. ok bought a used pair, installed them and could hear the left one. seller sent another pair, installed them, really dont sound that bad, at least i can hear them, also bought the logitech Z305 USB powered speaker, now it sounds good, well as good as its going to get with a clip on external speaker thats portable. now if there was a way to make then internal speakers sound as good as the logitech Z305, that would be perfect. i understand that apple is making a new laptop with upgraded speakers and even a subwoofer built in. still cant figure out why no one makes replacement speakers for the older laptops, i could only find used one and a lot of them. i wouldnt be surprised if some one hasnt taken a old macbook and chopped it up to see what speakers they could actually fit in it.
