just wondering, i was watching a movie at full volume on VLC controls and two notches below max volume (using the volume keys) to watch an action movie from the desk to the bed in a hotel room. i was worried i'd blow the speakers, that's why i kept it two notches below max volume, but how easy is it to blow them out? and how about for mb speakers?

I've wondered/worried about the very same thing. I'm curious to see if anyone has any information on damaged speakers.

my right speaker cracks a little from having the volume all the way up for music. I deal with it though. I dont really use them much

Id be willing to bet, not all that easy...as long as your not driving them to the point of distorting.

If your in a situation that requires you to use all the volume that VLC offers, get a good pair of external speakers.

If you are really worried about blowing them, just turn it down some.

yeah true, that's what i plan on doing. but what i meant is that i didnt cause any damage to my speakers from having vlc at max and os x volume 2 notches below max, did i? because the speakers dont seem blown to me.

i'm paranoid when it comes to my electronics!

Impossible to say...depends on what your listening too and a million other factors. If your that worried about it, turn it down. As long as there is no distortion, you should be good to go.
