Hi there,

 

I was wondering how straightforward it would be to install additional internal speakers into a laptop? I've searched online with no luck so thought I would try here. Also is there a website where I can buy quality internal speakers from?

 

I realise that economically I would be better off purchasing a good set of external speakers but I already have a decent set and would like to boost the sound of the laptop as it is.

 

Many thanks  :bubbles:

I am sure that it is not impossible, but that seems like a ton of work!

FWIW.

 

The idea may seem to have merit on a desktop (which uses external speakers) but it seems that the constrictions of any laptop re space and system design...will prevent anything else actually being installable, IMO.  Laptops are not designed for internal mods.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

There is no good way to add an additional internal speaker to most laptops, mainly because there is no room.   Laptops are precision engineered to fit the components into the case, there is very little spare space in most laptops.  Additionally a speaker could introduce issues due to the magnet(s).  About the best you could do would be a laptop cooling pad with speakers.

As everyone else had said there may be internal problems due to the magnet(s) and space.

 

However, if you have a 3D printer with ABS Plastic, you can print a base for your machine with spots for the speakers you want to add. then you would have to figure out how it connects.
