    Is there a way to boost the volume on the MBP? Apple doesnt give you nearly enough power for the speakers, they limit the max volume to still be safe even with a perfect audio source. Doing this screws you when you are dealing with a less than perfect audio source, like something on Youtube with the audio levels way too low.

    hey...we were just talking about this in my thread here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=930594

    our conclusions...: no, there's nothing really besides getting external speakers....and audio highjack (expensive if you buy...but you can get a freetrial)...I haven't tested a.h yet...good luck :)



    oh! and: VLC does wonders for some stuff :)

    It wouldn't if we use it just where it's required to boost the sound. There is a main volume controller to adjust the whole volume output. I have tested it on my macbook, headphone, boosted music on my iPod, YouTube videos, skype calls, games Call of Duty, it works perfect. :)

    In itunes you can go into the equalizer and get another 12 dB, but it starts to distort.

    But that won't help you in youtube.
