I just got a new GPad GPE, I love it, but the speakers sound TERRIBLE.

Music sounds very muffled with a "tinny" quality. I haven't heard anything this bad on a portable device before.

Is this a common problem with GPads? Or should I look at sending it back.

Thanks!

If you are using my kernel, you can adjust the gain and other speaker settings using either Trickstermod or the Faux sound application. The driver for sound control in my kernel is not "the latest", and you will get told as much if you download the Faux app, but it is what works on our kernel. Adjusting from Trickster worked for me. It's not a total solution, but much, much better than nothing!
