My image above shows 2 grills too, but is there a speaker behind BOTH? My image above from Apple just points out one on the right. If there WERE 2, you would think Apple would be advertising 2 stereo speakers.

I have searched a lot of websites, and am unable to come up with a definitive answer.
If you want to watch movies, play games or listen to music, the sound on the Fire HD is fantastic. It has stereo speakers. Nexus 7 and iPad Mini have one speaker.
I do not know how reliable this is though, as this is the only page I have found this info on so far.
Seems strange that Apple would have included two speaker if there is only one speaker, maybe the second grill is for ventilation / cooling.
We might need to wait for an iFixit teardown.

Mystery solved! The iPad mini DOES have 2 stereo speakers--one behind each grill. BUT, the new iPad 4 only has the ONE mono speaker like all previous iPads. This could be why they are not advertising the stereo speakers in the mini.
