Speakers on my laptop

Hi, I have a Windows 7 Dell Inspiron N4110 and the speakers sound terrible because there is no base.  Can I change the sound?
Thanks

Yes, small speakers (squeakers) can't give you bass, also not with any setting adjustment. You may optimise a bit, but only external speakers will provide, what the specs of the Realtek sound chip offer.

The Realtek ALC269 actually offers SPDIF digital optical output, but I see no connector provided in the notebook specs, just analog 3.5 jacks. It's typical, because you don't get any sound chips with lower specs any more. Don't be impressed by the sound chip specs, the speakers output the sound, not the sound chip. And as small internal speakers won't be able to sound a quarter as good as the dynamic range of sound chip could do, you won't get any bass out of them.

Bye, Olaf.

According to Dell you have the Realtek audio.. check in your control panel for the Realtek Audio Manager and you can play with your settings in there.

use headphones or other speakers plugged into the line-out or headphone jack as the speakers are way too small to give you ANY BASS response.. even the midranges will be poor

you can always connect the laptop line out to a sound amplifier system for better sound
