WHAT IT IS...

This mod will activate your handset speaker to work at the same time as your main speaker while playing music, watching videos, movies, when phone rings, etc....not as good as the 6's duall front speakers but better then 1...I called it surround sound because when i made this originally the phone i used had a rear speaker and with this mod the sound kind of surrounds the phone. Obviously it isnt real surround sound but nonetheless sounds great.


DISCLAIMER...

I am not responsible in any way for anything that happens to your device whether manually installing the files or flashing zip files for the surround sound mod. You do so at your own risk. Many have tested this on their 5x phone and it works great. Enjoy


INSTALLATION...

You can install a couple different ways including extracting the files included in the zip and manually pushing them to system/etc, set permissions to rw r r, and reboot or just flash the included zips in your custom recovery😉...


CREDITS...

Stu5797 _ for supplying the original 5x files and back and forth testing my experiments...Thanks man...
IDKsomuch _ for starting the thread which spiked the interest in this mod for the 5x. Thanks

Volume
If your looking to leave the stock configuration of just the one main speaker, but would like to raise the volume, please refer to the picture below for the location of the value that needs to be adjusted. As i do not have the phone yet, i can't test to see how high you can go but from my past experiences on various phones 90 is about the maximum before distortion starts and sometimes even issues like reboots, freezes, etc can happen if you go too high or below the stock value of 84.

Thanks @reddv1 for testing it and posting his experience here:

CHANGING VOLUME WITH SURROUND MOD

Refer to pick below. The setup is a bit different then the stock setup above...

I booted the TWRP Image from fastboot and installed both zips using the ADB Sideload command without any issue.

Steps Followed:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.2-bullhead.img 
adb sideload Nexus_5x_Surround.zip 
adb reboot
Sidenote: Do we have any specifications on the top speaker? I.E. Is it the same or different than the lower speaker. Just curious.

Thanks for the mod @sshafranko. You added a feature that I thought I would miss out on by not having the 6P.

The two speakers are completely different unfortunately but need to be. One is an internal speaker wchich is the handset and you need to put your ear up to it to hear and the other is an external, made so that you can hear it while away from the phone. I did raise the volume on the headset speaker a couple notches more then the main speaker so that the main doesnt overwhelm the headset speaker to the point that you cant hear it.

This mod just brought life to my Nexus 5X's sound! I was very skeptical at first, but when I installed it the stereo feeling was unbelievably strong given the fact that it comes off a headset speaker! Thank you so much!
