While Mac speakers sound fine for the small-format squeakers they are, giving them a boost and taking them to their maximum potential is a compelling opportunity.
The makers of Boom 3D claim their software enables a 3D Surround Sound audio experience using just your built-in Apple speakers on the iMac, MacBook Pro, or whatever fruity computer you have. Boom 3D is a system-wide volume booster and equalizer made for macOS that also comes with a built-in audio player.
In addition to all the 3D Surround stuff, it’s able to boost your Mac’s volume and gives you a 10-band EQ (plus additional EQ choices) with presets for various genres and occasions. The software is organized into 3D surround, Ambience, Fidelity, Night Mode, and Spatial pages. Each offers a set of controls, keeping it simple but also fully-featured.
The 3D Surround engine has simulations of Left Front, Right Front, a pair of Tweeters, Left & Right surround, and Subwoofer with bass control. Plenty of stuff to try and tinker with!
Price and availability
Normally sold for USD 17, the software is currently available for just USD 8 over at iPhoneHacks. The offer expires in two days, so if you are interested, you better give those coffee & sandwich money on time. We are certainly going to play around with this application and try it out with some Surround records and movies.
