View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hey 7,1 MBP's have you tried this for sound?

I understand sound is pretty ugly for most of us but I messed with the surround sound setting in alsamixer and found that when unmuted and upped to a little over the front speaker setting you get pretty decent sound. I haven't seen this mentioned in the wiki so I thought I'd let you guys know. I like 79 for front speakers and 81 for the surround sound setting. Let me know how this works guys!

I just crank it up to 100%. However, I noticed (and reported in many threads on here) about the left speaker being underpowered on my 7,1 Macbook. I take it yours is ok? If you go to Sound Preferences and click "Test Speakers" under the Hardware tab, my right speaker sounds like it has more bass than the left.
