What was replaced with top case

I had my 2018 Touch Bar MacBook Pro top case replaced at an Apple Store due to a faulty keyboard. Were the speakers also replaced?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, the full uppercase is swapped out! Apple collects these uppercase assemblies and ships them to be refitted with new keyboards and battery as well as fully tested, then shipped out as the replacement you got!

So… The question is are you having issues with the speakers with your replacement uppercase? If you are I would go back and talk to genius on getting it fixed again in this case they could just replace the speaker(s) alone.

I was just wondering if the speakers on the replacement case are the same ones that come with a 2018 version and not a 2016 or 2017 version. Because the ones for the 2016 and 2017 version are round and the speakers for the 2018 version are rectangular. I feel my volume is not as loud as it was in the top case with the faulty keyboard, but that might just be me worrying.

I doubt they did a switch-a-roo on you. Popping off the bottom cover and comparing it to the teardown images is about the best you can do to validate if you got the wrong part.

Usually warranty repairs list what was replaced and internal part numbers on the paperwork.
