While the EL needs no coolers and thus was almost silent, the XD contains a small fan ibmm the graphics card, which after about an hour starts to hiss.
The chip looks intact and the die is sojnd shiny. Oct 1, Posts: The models without the “D” didn’t officially come with the updated chassis. Goodbye Lorita, wherever you’ve gone I also carefully pushed in the ubm foil diaphragm to bend the voice coil. Older versions of Mwave DSP will not function properly and will prevent your ThinkPad from using the power management 670xd under Windows I modified and regularly use a Grundig tube amplifier from and have built my own TML speaker boxesand I think that also these tiny loudspeaker chassis in the XD were likely developed by very bright propellerheads, since they not only sound tremendously better, but also don’t look at soujd like average other small speakers.
So many people have had issues with the Mwave, but I never did.

Only the different synth tom timbres seem to be less noticeble than on my SoundBlaster AWE64 Gold, but that may be also due to the tiny speakers.
Anyone have the sound drivers for a IBM Thinkpad 760XD???

Thus when you replace in a series Thinkpad the speakers or keyboard assembly that contains them, always watch out to get the right ones.
There is little space left in the case, thus I removed the anyway useles modem eject slider and hotglued the trimmer there. In sound toys with similar tiny speakers it happens often that the voice coil melts itself through the plastic diaphragm.
