Answer to: Ear speaker low and trebley. Cleaned and Changed speaker, still same!Yup, It was the Ear Speaker, Prox. Loc, FF cam flex. I took the old one off the other assembly, reinstalled on my wifes, and it works. Ugh, I do not miss this. Anyone trying this that hasnt before, make sure you heat the front side of the glass just below the FF cam and prox sensor(This will loosen the glue and make it easier to remove), and carefully remove the old with a thin smudger. when installing the new one, make sure everything is perfectly aligned and the cover fits on perfectly. There are no shortcuts and if its not exactly right, and the piece is askew, you can damage your LCD assembly when you put it all back together. Hope this helps someone.

The PCB below the Flex cover EMI lower two screw holes is fine; no scratching or wear(Totally black). I have a pic, but cannot figure how to upload. There's no liquid damage residue and watermarks are white. Yet another Apple Bomb mystery...
