    DEPENDS on ~what~ you're testing.

    If you want TO test the BASS RESPONSE of any given speaker, then it is very useful. HAS nothing TO do with "HIGH-END".

    Well, did you try lowering the volume inside the Flash player to see if your issue is the same that I described?

     

    No need to return your MacBook if Flash is broken...

    Absolutely incorrect.

     

    It has everything to do with "high end". Or in this case meaning "high end LARGE external speakers".

     

    You can "test" any speaker with "ULF BASS sound files", however if a laptop speaker designed parameter falls outside the range of the intent, desisgn, and specifications...., then the outcome is normal.

     

    You cannot put a 500 pound person on a ladder rated for "250 pounds max" and declare a 'failure'.  Test it for same, yes.

     

    Low Frequency Range Test (10-200 Hz)

     

    "Because of their increased wavelength (nearly 20 meters at 20 Hz), high output at low frequencies usually requires large drivers (subwoofers)"

     

     

    Peace

    Then the outcome is as expected or referenced — not normal — and the test was successful. You seem not to grasp the concept of testing.

    You will most likely declare a failure of the ladder, possible an ankle or a wrist, too. The test would then confirm what the specifications told you. Not sure what "Test it for same, yes" is supposed to mean.

    Clueless to what point you're trying to make here.

    No good news with Mavericks (with regards to this issue).

     

    Still obvious (slowly attacking and clumsily responding) DRC going on, still >0dB clipping going on.

    Just putting some informaiton out there, I've had my mac since at least 2009, and the volume problems just started after the most recent OSX update, so it is a software issue.
