Realtek HD Audio Manager + 5.1 -1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer uses Realtek's HD Audio Manager, and I have 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, and a subwoofer. So, I set the manager to 5.1 and unchecked the box labeled center speaker to indicate that I don't have one. However, the center and subwoofer output use the same jack, and my subwoofer receives no signal when I uncheck the center speaker. If I leave the center speaker box checked, it tries to make my sub act as a center speaker, making my music and videos sound horrible. If I plug my iPod in and have the center speaker option unchecked, then it will use my sub. I run Windows Vista x64 and I do not use an external sound card.

  • HI

    your configuration is not 5.1 its quadraphonic speakers in 5.1 totally contains 5 speakers and a sub woofer

    yours is   quadraphonic so set the settings for that  and you cannot make woofer as a speaker
    and you may not need the the external sound card make the setting to   quadraphonic and test for it...

    hope it helps

  • This response makes no sense and is not helpful.  I have the same problem and did not understand what NIKHIL is saying here.
