I suspect that you may not have followed the directions correctly. What you are looking for and should delete is "com.apple.systempreferences.plist ". Go to the link and reread the following:
This should reset the sound parameters in System Preferences to the original values. Before you do this you might delete Boom and Hear as they may have an affect even when the System Preferences.plist is rebuilt.
You also mentioned " I then went to delete the programs and also using clean my mac. ". I suggest that Clean my Mac is not needed and you might delete that as well. Third party 'cleaning apps' have generally been found to be ineffective and often cause problems with MBPs.

Resurrect your old MBP and listen to it. The fact is what you are describing I have never experienced on any of my three MBPs, even with the oldest when it had Leopard or Snow Leopard. The sound on all my MBPs has always been 'utilitarian' at best.
I checked my 2010 MBP System Preferences which has Snow leopard on it. I saw no such setting available. Sadly my 2006 MBP which has Leopard on it is not feeling well so I cannot see what setting it may have in that regard. I simply cannot answer that question.

HA HA Sorry to bother you , just found this http://support.apple.com/kb/PH1432 at the bottom of the page is what i was on about , however , i cannot find it , Edit , in what ?
To adjust the Sound Enhancer:
Depending on your individual tastes, you can use the Sound Enhancer to enrich your sound quality.
Sound Enhancer increases the perceived “wideness” of the stereo effect by modifying bass and treble response.
- Choose Edit > Preferences, and click Playback.
- Make sure Sound Enhancer is selected.
- To increase or decrease the effect of the Sound Enhancer, drag the slider.

That is the iTunes Equalizer. Since the sound quality of the MBPs speakers is so poor, I have always left on 'flat' but you certainly can alter the sound with it. I am pleased you found it. When in iTunes, OPTION COMMAND 2 opens it.
