    Hi. I'm not sure how many speakers are in the iphone 3gs but there are 2 speaker holes at the bottom. When I cover the one on the left, I hear barely nothing but if I cover the right hole, there's clearly sound coming out. Is one of the speakers defective?

    nvm just realized that the one the right is a mic!!!

    Two speakers really wouldn't do a anything except make it louder. One speaker is already loud enough. If you had two speakers at full blast, I'm sure the vibration wouldn't be good for the internal parts. Sound stage would be pretty much non-existent too.

    Hahah yeah it took me a couple of days to see that only one was the speaker. I covered it with my finger by accident and then I couldn't hear anything and I freaked out.
