Does setting the "subwoofer" to 100 actually produce any improvements?

Hello

I would like to know if there is any improvement to sound quality if I go to

Speaker properties>levels>subwoofer and set it to 100

since the default is disabled and my one other question is it safe to set it at 100 as I require to listen to great quality songs and a bit concerned if this can cause any damage to the laptop speakers/headphones

Any internal setting should not damage the speakers.

You failed to include the actual Dell laptop model (an example Inspiron 1501) so I can't research what your PC actually has.

A laptop does not have a sub woofer, so why are you bothering ?

A sub woofer is an external component of an hd theater, an the volume for it is controlled by the receiver or by the sub-woofers own volume control.

Unless you have some 2.1 or better system, changing that setting will more than likely not do anything.

Really ? What size is the sub woofer ?

I see nothing in this review about a built in sub woofer.

I`ve never seen or heard of a laptop with more then 2 speakers.

I've heard of a laptop with a tiny subwoofer in the bottom. I think maybe whatever Surround/5.1 sound you have is probably simulated.

A laptop with a built-in sub woofer, Amazing

A 5.1 system requires 5 speakers and a sub woofer.

Does your laptop have 5 speakers too ?

sorry i meant the system supports 5.1 and i could purchase external speakers to make it up 5.1. Im currently still thinking if it would make any changes by adjusting subwoofer to 100
