Finally, we can use the two speakers of the S7.

This is my first mod. This mod activate de handset speaker and i do modiffications in the volume of the two speakers.

Now, the S7 sounds incredible!!!!! I tested the values with a lot of song with headset and phone speakers, calls,... and i think that is perfect in all situations.


LITE
- Dual speaker
- Slightly modified stock volume values


V1
- Dual speaker
- Increased headset volume
- Increased handset volume in calls
- Increased volume for dual speakers


V2
- Increase Bluetooth volume
- Little increased handset speaker volume when playing media


V3
- Fix a problem in the sound redirection to handset speaker when playing media
- Now the call speaker sound much better when playing media


V4
- Increase call volume
- Increased headphone volume (Is the max for original S7 headphones, but perfect for big headphones)
- Slightly decrease Bluetooth call and media volume



INSTALLATION:

1 - Make a backup
2 - Flash zip
3 - Reboot



Tested and work perfectly on:

Samsung S7 930F



Tested and problems on:

Samsung S7 930W8 (I need stock mixer_path.xml and mixer_gains.xml for make a mod for this model)




IF THE MOD HAVE ANY PROBLEM IN YOUR S7 MODEL, PLEASE, SEND ME YOUR ORIGINAL MIXER_PATHS.XML AND MIXER_GAINS.XML AND I DO A MOD FOR YOU.


Test it and tell me if you have any problem, experience distorsion, ...


(Sorry for my english, i'm spanish)

V5 is dual speaker?

Inviato dal mio SM-G935F utilizzando Tapatalk

I deleted the V5 because i do a lot of test and the V4 is perfect.

Test it watching a trailer or any HD content and is increible.

With multimedia content that is very pre amplificated, i prefer to down volume manually y volume down key.

But with content with low volume, is good to have margin to up the volume.

and yes, all versions are dual speaker.

In being dense... we have more than one speaker?

We have only "one speaker meant for music" which is located under the phone. The second one is the earpiece which located next to the selfie camera. The second one is only used for calls, however this mod enables to use both for music and video, enabling a sort of a surround effect.

Use with caution, as the earpiece speaker can be damaged at higher volumes since it was not meant for music.

The S7 have a 1.5w main speaker and a 1.2w hearpiece

The people are using a similar mod since s4 and there is no problem while the values are safe and the s7 have a very good hearpiece compared with old models.

    V17

    This version is for separate the mod on different volume levels.

    - 3 different volume level for Volume Mod
    - 3 different volume level for Dual Speaker Mod

    Level 0 - Stock Volume
    Level 1 - Slightly increased values
    Level 2 - Intermediate version
    Level 3 - Best volume values (I always use this version)


    (The difference between levels is only multimedia volume. On next version i will change all volumes between levels)


    For people that want dual speaker mod without volume mod, use LEVEL 0 ;)

    Bugfix and enhacements on next version. Thanks for your patience.

    V.17 ? @zubi did you get your phone repaired yet?

    Yes but I have a lot of problems in my work and I'm having some crazy weeks

    I want to solve all bugs and enhance some things on v17 but I don't have time

    Don't worry, the project is not dead

    When I upload the v17 I will upload a dual speaker version without volume mod for all s7 models

    Simply a need some time to solve the problems and continue with this mod

    In few days I can solve my problems and continue with this

    Thanks for all comments and I'm very happy to see that you are enjoying the mod
