Windows 7: Replacing internal laptop speakers?

Replacing internal laptop speakers?

I want to just start off by saying that my current speakers work, I'm just wondering if it is at all possible to find somewhere that sells higher quality ones. For example, purchasing harmon kardon speakers that are the same size as my current speakers. I have no cracked open my laptop to see what type they are yet, because I wanted to see if anyone else has tried this.

My laptop is a Samsung X460I. Any help or input on where or who to find internal speakers from would be greatly appreciated. I watch a lot of movies on this, and the audio quality is subpar and "tinny".

Also I understand that external speakers that sort of hang off a usb are available, but I'm looking for something more permanent.

Hiya pal

I don't think it's worth while trying to change your internal speakers for a couple of reasons.

1. Your going to void your warranty
2. The sound isn't going to improve that much
3. You might do more damage than it's worth

Why not look at a set of bluetooth wireless speakers. Apart from connecting them to your lappy these can double up as a hands free kit for your mobile phone as they have a built in mic & you can also play music from your phone through them. Some of them like this one are rechargeable so they don't even need a permanent power cable. They are quite cheap +- 25 for the speaker and +- 5 for a bluetooth adapter.... just a suggestion

You are physically limited to the space allotted for your current speakers. Nothing better will physically fit and mount in the space. This is a common complaint of laptop users, poor speakers.

A good quality headphone will be better than the built in speakers. Other than headphones the only other real option is what you don't want - external speakers.

Thanks for the responses. I wasn't sure if it was plausible or reasonable to get better internal speakers. Sounds like I'll just have to make due with what I have.

I'll look into Bluetooth speakers in the meantime.

You can also try an external Sound Card designed for Laptop...Search for "Creative Sound Blaster". There's some USB or Express card, Pcmcia Card, associated with external speakers 2.1 to 5.1.
