Right speaker audio comes out through the left speaker

I noticed that my right speakers weren't working so I went to sound in system preference and then balanced my speaker all the way to the right but I was getting audio output from my left speaker which is weird.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

What happens when you bias it the other way?


@danj the audio comes out through the left speaker


@Olasubomi Odekunle - The point was the 'Other' side biasing it that side. So you are saying no matter which way you bias it the sound always comes out the Left only?


@danj yes it always comes out from the left speaker

Very weird for sure! Did you get your system wet?

Sadly, this sounds like you have a chip failure in the amp logic. I would visit Apple to see if you can get your logic board swapped out as this logic is part of the M1 SoC.

Before you go make a backup as they won't transfer your stuff over.

No it didn't. I woke up played a YouTube video then realised my right speakers weren't working.

Thank you


@Olasubomi Odekunle - Sorry ;-{ Time to get to Apple to get it fixed, hopefully under warranty. If they say its not covered, press for a warranty exemption as long as you don't have any visible damage or get your system wet they should fix it for free!

Don't forget to accept the answer, thanks!
