    The sound level has long been my only issue with my macbook.  It's very annoying to not be able to hear anything if your computer is more than an arms length away from you.


    I found this walkthrough on how to create an equalizer (similar to the one available in iTunes) for all audio output on your mac, and it's finally fixed the issue for me.


    You will need to download two freeware apps (Soundflower from google code, and AU Lab from apple developers) and it's very easy and fairly quick to assemble.


    Hope this helps.

    Have you tried audio hijack? Man, you gotta try it, it works perfectly and it's free. Of course you gotta download it first then just follow these simple steps to make it work tch-instantly-titles/ kyaaaa~ enjoy watching

    You guys should try BOOM. No need to purchase and external speakers. Just follow my Youtube video on how to get, and how to use BOOM. Enjoy!!

    BTW, BOOM enhances the internal speaker volume. So it is much louder for videos, Youtube, music, etc. It's the one app you will need to solve all your volume needs.

    Yes Boom works.  I just didn't want to have to pay for it.

    Maybe he found the volume button and has to now type in caps to be heard...



  • pandnotq Level 1 (0 points)

    The only decent freeware I've found so far is VLC media player, which allows you to turn the volume up to 200%, boosting the speakers much louder than normal. Of course, this only works if you're actually watching/listening to something through VLC media player. So it's fine for downloaded movies or things, but it doesn't help for watching Netflix of Youtube videos.

    I just realized I could use the Bluetooth. I can now listen to anything I want via my bluetooth surround soundbar. Thought it might help here. I'm not into computer stuff, but I too was having a hard time listening to online tutorials.

    Go for the app called boom. I'm currently using it and lovin' it!

  • Shreyaskuthu Level 1 (0 points)

    You should definitely try out Boom app.

    They even have a free trial in their website

    Works great!

    Ps. Before purchasing Boom via Mac App Store, uninstall trial copy of Boom within the app via Setings->Preferences->Uninstall.

  • Harlan Johnson Level 1 (35 points)

    I tried Boom and it helped. I bought it. Then they sent an update and it stopped working. I've corresponded with them 3 times and tried their email suggestions.  Nothing has worked so far.  It just loops in the opening video and doesn't work.  They aren't able (or willing?) to work with me on the phone or Skype.  I haven't tried their last suggestion because it is very complex and assumes I know things that I'm not that technically sophistocated to do.  If it eventually works again, i'll post  Anyone else have the same problem?  |I think something they included in the app and/or the update messes it up, but I don't know.

    Well just like you've mentioned about unistalling and reinstalling, I have, of course, tried that way but unfortunately, after doing that twice you can't do it again and again. Isn't it obvious that if this was the way out then nobody would have bought the product? well, I got the same problem regarding my speakers sound in mac, have you got an alternate way out? I'd really appreciate your ideas

  • punty Level 1 (0 points)

    However I have learnt that, everytime a new version is released, you must buy it. Like other apps in mac, it doesn't get updated on it's own. So,yes it is a drag because buying only once is not enough.

  • Shreyaskuthu Level 1 (0 points)

    That's not true. Boom is a onetime purchase app.

    It does not matter if you have purchased Boom via Mac App Store or the website store. You can always reinstall the software. While reinstalling via MAS, please ensure that you make use of the same account which was used on purchase time.

    If you could elaborate your issues, I would be happy to help.
