  3. 3. sound too quiet
  4. 4. sound buzzing
  5. 5. no sounds from one side
  6. 6. imbalance sound level between left and right speakers

Why do My MacBook speakers fail?

A loudspeaker consists of 4 components: magnet, voice-coil, diaphragm and suspension. The weakest component is suspension.

The suspension of a MacBook speaker is usually made of rubber. As the rubber ages, it becomes not as soft as before. As a result, the sound of your MacBook will get softer and quieter. When the rubber becomes harder and harder over time, it finally breaks, resulting in the sound distortion, crackling and buzzing that you experienced. The photo below shows the suspension (rubber) is broken.

Some MacBooks operate at very high temperatures due to power-hungry apps, cooling fan failure, heat sink failure, airflow blocked by dust, etc. The high temperature will accelerate rubber aging. As a result, your MacBook speakers deteriorate very quick.

Also, if you operate the MacBook speakers at a very high volume for a long time, it will significantly shorten the speaker’s life.

If you experience only one speaker working in a MacBook Pro, chances are you have a failed speaker. However, if you find one speaker not working in a MacBook Air, especially the right speaker not working, chances are you have a faulty audio I/O board.

In a MacBook Air, Apple uses an I/O board to decode, amplify and output the sound separately. The I/O board is prone to fail, especially after a liquid spill.
