Just thought I would respond with my status.

Currently I have both speakers working on my MacBook Pro 17" 5.2!

The problem for me was that LINE OUT volume had to be maximized!

I ended up running alsamixer, tabbing through until I was viewing all options and maximized line out.

After checking with 5.1 surround sound tests My speakers are displaying correctly, however the alsa speaker test has them only producing output on rear left and rear right.

The sound is also quite low, requiring almost full volume and allowing very little useful adjustment range.

But bottom line 5.2 MBP 17" speakers work, although not perfectly!
