HP Pavilion 15-ck000nb
Linux

I recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 on my HP laptop (model Pavilion 15-ck000nb, with B&O audio) to try it out. Everything works so far except that the sound quality compared to Windows 10 is very bad. Is it possible that there is a subwoofer that doesn't work that needs specific Bang & Olufsen drivers?

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: I previously tried PopOS 18.04 (Debian based) on this laptop and it had the same sound problem.

I have a similar issue with my HP spectre x360 ubuntu 20.04. I get audio from all speakers but the quality is way poorer compared to windows. Anyone found a fix yet?
