Why does my laptop sometimes crack in the speaker?
- A.J.Lv 74 weeks ago
I worked for IBM and Lenovo, mostly in the Thinkpad division for many years. Laptop speakers are typically cheap, even if money is paid to consulting audio companies to get the best out of them. They are low wattage and software and signals can blow them out or rip the speaker paper. There can also be an electrical "crack" like a tiny signal "spark" even if not a crack or spark, I use it metaphorically.
You can use headphones or external decent speakers.
Likely you have pushed the volume more than it was intended, or laptop is aging, or both.
Technology now offers relatively inexpensive rechargeable blutooth speakers. For US$13, I bought a 7 inches long 2-speaker party-lights bluetooth, rechargeable, compatible with my laptop. It has cord input, accepts SD cards to play MP3 music, and is a 5 hour or more use and 3 watt speakers.
At $6 off, free shipping, is $14 in the USA:
