Are You sad that Samsung didn't give us stereo speakers?
Well, don't be. Today I made a Dual Speaker Mod for our beloved devices!

Guide:
1. Download modded mixer_paths.xml
2. With any root explorer or TWRP go to /system/etc
3. Paste and overwite/replace Your current mixer_paths.xml with the modded one.
4. Set permissions to 0644 or 644.
5. Reboot & enjoy!

First I want to thank you for the mod.

Before I install it I have some questions

1. How does this work? It uses the ear piece as the second speaker?
2. If that's the case doesn't it affect it over time?

Thanks!

1. Yes.
2. It's not as loud as the main speaker so it shouldn't damage it. Similar mods have been made since Galaxy S6 I think, even with higher volumes and I haven't seen any complains. I used it on my S7 Edge and everything worked just fine. Didn't make any of my speakers noisy etc.

Probably not.. You could most likely replace it using TWRP, but not sure if SD model has TWRP already or ability to unlock the bootloader.

No, SD don't have it and provably will take a lot. I'm asking about it because I've seen others mods done over ADB

Thanks for the anwser.

Is there anyway to do this without TWRP or rooting the device? I would like to try avoiding rooting my device utill the oreo update(whenever that will be)

Seems like some mods can be applied through adb but this one requires RW access to /system which can be only enabled with root. And I could make TWRP for SD model but unlocked bootloader is required.

Nice work! Replaced the file and the sound now on both speaker and earpiece is awesome. No noise at all with max volume.
Thank you!
