    Anybody else have a problem with the external speaker sounding distorted? If I use the speaker during calls I can hardly understand what's being said. I went thru 6 Droid incredibles with speaker problems and hope this is an isolated case. What do you think?

    Well, yes and no. I personally have not had this issue, have you tried turning down the volume slightly?? I know.... just have to ask lol.

    There is an Issue where the external speaker quits working. And in my experience, I can tell you that a faulty connection to a speaker can cause it to distort. Try running your finger over the speaker port area, see if it does anything to rectify the distortion.

    Hope this helps????

    I had 2 maxx and both have done it on max volume. Tried a couple in the store and did the same. I found that just lower it 1 notch and it goes away.

    In this case its called over modulation. You could try going into settings, sound, and scroll down to media audio effects, phone speaker. Its set at default to BASS PUNCH. Try putting on something like BALANCED. Its asking alot of a small tweeter to take the boom of some peoples voices. Try this, I'll bet it helps

    No problem, it's pretty limited but the bass punch is hard on the little speakers in these things. Its not like these are black widows or earthquake 20's lol.

    You'll also find that its usable for adjusting the sound to your headphones...

    I agree, but these are built in. Its not like they're boosting the pre amp in Poweramp.

    Not to be taken lightly... lol. It only takes a second to tear the cone.

    I hear ya... hard to get reflex out of something built this cheaply. I can't say small because I've seen tiny ceramic speakers that would carry highs that make a dog whine lol.
