    If you didn't do anything to damage it, then yes, it will be covered by your warranty. Make an appointment with the Genius bar and they'll schedule a repair.

    Hang on ... MBPs don't *have* subwoofers (please note correct spelling btw). What exactly are we talking about here?

    I'm guessing he means the bass in music is making the speakers rattle around, probably just a loose screw but if you don't want to void the warranty definately take it to an apple store.

    Specs:
    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    You will see from the following teardown guides, that they do have Subwoofers... or at least laptop versions of Subwoofers.
    As those above have advised, take it to Apple to have it taken care of.
