View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sounds like speakers are blown

March 7th, 2011, 10:43 PM
Hello, i have a macbook (circa 2009) and it has sounded like my speakers are blown for months now.

i assumed the speakers were actually blown because mac speakers are weak. but i went back into my osx side for the first time in months today and the sound is perfect in mac osx.

any thoughts as to what could be causing this?

Check your levels in a mixer. It could be clipping caused by too much gain.

or its invalid settings in /etc/asound.conf or ~.asoundrc...
