    To showcase how fundamentially broken clevos software is here is a little video recorded with my phone. I only mademy custom drivers to fix Clevos absolutely garbage and uncalibrated XFI MB 3 software and the sound went from Tinny garbage to actually good. Sadly my phone microphone doens't really capture the goodness of the speakers after the mod and somehow does remove the tinnyness of the garbage drivers, which is interesting.

    But despite that the difference is even on my garbage mic so noticable that it showcases that whoever is in charge of the software is completely incompotent.

    That's pretty sweet!
    I'm pretty disappointed with my speaker/sound configuration as well; I simply avoid using the speakers in favor of headphones, or play music/demos from an ancient Inspiron while I work on my P650.

    My P650 came with lots of fancy stickers highlighting its "great" Onkyo/XFI MB5 combo, but I'm thinking the stickers might be the best part of the deal :rolleyes: :mad:

    Can't really fix your notebook with my drivers since they are very very specifically for my notebook, but I can see what I can do in order to make your 2.0 system somewhat tolerable. The speakers themselves aren't the exact problem, it's the way clevo doesn't give a damn and throws software that needed to be finetuned but they didn't bother. The software itself isn't bad it's just not for the system.

    Hey! That's great! Totally unexpected, but thanks for the offer!

    I really enjoyed looking through your bumpin' laptop stereo post, and I'll leave another comment there not to derail this thread ;)

    Ok, had to make a new video because apparently the old one had some copyright issues. (lol).

    Ouch....

    The bass is absolutely dead on that notebook. All you did was add a bit more volume, the sound itself is the same quality.

    Haven't you modded your subwoofer?

    Not on this model, shows how little clevo cares.

    1. The sound is much clearer now.
    2. P375 has, I believe, bigger subwoofer than P6xx.
    3. I've also recorded with a phone, so yeah, the difference is less hearable.
