    M11x is a portable multimedia and gaming beast but the included speakers might affect the entertainment experience... The speakers are good but not that good, It lacks some bass and crispiness. Loudness has some issues too, sliding your volume bar or equalizer up will just make the speakers like someone who's screaming for his life...

    Would it be nice to have better sounding speakers for R1?

    Yes we can have that:) How?
    By replacing the speakers:D

    I just found out that the Altec Lansing speakers from my old laptop works well with R1... Luckily, you don't have to solder things, because it has the same connector as r1's speakers...speaker size are just the same too... And the audio is fantastic:)

    Now I have a better sounding M11X R1 than all of you:D at least for now:)

    GUIDE IN MOUNTING THE ALTEC LANSING SPEAKERS ON M11X R1


    This is just a rough guide... procedure will depend on what model of speakers you will try.

    Just follow the pics ;)

    Note: Don't forget to test your Altec speakers before and after the whole procedure :)

    Nice, cant wait to see some pics. I have been dreaming of nice m11x speakers. Waiting to find a set of r3 speakers and a m14x subwoofer to give a try.

    Nice to see successful modding +1. I understand that the R3 comes with better speaker than the previous 2 revisions but does anyone know what make?

    I have used altec speakers before they would be certainly worth the hassle if they are better than the stock ones in my R3.
