Left speaker broken? Odd sounds coming from it.
After hearing a high-pitched sound and then some other strange sounds just after opening my laptop I think the speaker has trouble with high-pitched sound and so on.
Do you guys think it’s repairable and if yes do you have a guide coming up?
Thanks for this wanderful web site.
Is dit een goede vraag?
I have the same problem, (I got the new replacement Pro only in 2019 Sept. just 7 months. now the guaranteed passed). I found the left speaker have bad sound, noisy and cracking. I called Apple, that cannot resolve my problem, due to COVID period, Apple stores are closed, and the authorized service provider did not answer the phone, and no way to left message. Finally I checked Sound from System Preferences and adjust the sound to right side, which sounds good, but now only one side works well, but at least it works!

@chingg - You have other options than Apple! If your upto it you could replace the speaker on your own. Or, you could find someone local who can help you.
Where do you live country and nearest city maybe we can aim you to someone!
@danj I have the same exact issue as the person you replied to right down to the same year model and down to the same side being affected. Muffled and crackled sounding with static. The thing is I did replace it myself with a replacement from iFixit and that did nothing, did not change it at all, and it's the same as before as with the new one in.
@SeanErik - Check out the dialog in David Kirk answer below!
exact same problem. so lame. I did the fix you suggest and got the right side shut down. thanks~
