Hello,

I have a macbook pro late 2008, all hardware has always worked smoothly up until a year ago: keyboard retro-illumination failed. So recently - one month ago - I got it to the shop and they fixed the thing by substituing the whole keyboard. Basically my mbp got opened and hands inside it for the first time.
The solution worked, but now I noticed that the right speaker makes distorted sounds when playing music or audio in general with basses.

I can't say for sure the previous reparation has something to do with it, but what do ya think??
Is there any test-software I can try to diagnose the issue and see at least if it's a hardware or software related problem????

Thanks!

Probably had nothing to do with the previous repair. Loud music and lots of bass will eventually wear the fine cone material off the speaker. Check around eBay or just about any of the Mac parts distributors and order a new set of speakers. They're easy to replace.
