Help setting up Asus Xonar D2X? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
your black one needs to go to the amber colored port..

also I have a set of z-5300's and it played the sub-woofer along with all of the speakers.... not sure if thats what yours is doing, might want to make an audio file that only plays on one channel (right speaker or left speaker) then plug your sub/center into the front channel port and see if you can get it to only play through one... if it still plays through both then your speakers are automatically mixing and doing crossover.

kinda complicated... but just a thought lol

Unlikely that the black wire need to go to the amber port in my case, I just switched it and i get zero sound from both LR and RR speakers, They do what they should do atm but there just named as side speakers, Bugs me quite a bit.

With the center and sub... they both play sound in sync and thats good, But its like both notes are being played on the sound test, If you select the sub on the test, You should only be able to here bass... Not the center with it thats happening in my case, If i got this fixed it will result in a different way the sound is processed if thats the right way to put it.

It would do the same with my onboard, but i could fix it by swapping the bass and center WHILE playing the test song, But unlikely i can get that to work on here.

thats a little strange but as long as they work as rears I don't see the problem

have you tried the windows audio test tones as well as the ones in the driver for the sound card?

(P.S. I would also check to make sure all of the windows crap is off such as speaker correction and speaker fill etc etc.)

I'm on my laptop right now, but to get to it you right click the desired audio device, the click properties. most of the stuff that that annoys me a lot is in the enhancements tab


here's a picture for ya, im guessing most of the stuff is off though.

I'll check mine as soon as I can get to my desktop and see what I did for my test tones.

Hmm, I dont have the tab in my speaker proprieties :/

But i have a feeling i may of fixed it!1!

I done the trick that i did with my onboard by swapping the bass while it was playing the test tune, I used the windows test tune to do it though and it seems to of worked, Like theres almost zero bass coming out of the center speaker as what should happen, Thing is if i replay the test tune it resets the speaker. Wierd i know but if it works it works.

But if anything happens anyway ill most likely post back, Hope the reverb effect has gone off BC2 also, I got it to less noticeable but not gone...

+ rep for helping me with some stuff though

/E Actually... I seem to get no bass from my actual speakers... Just the sub... Not really what i wanted :/

Glad to hear its working,

Bfbc2 is great on this card, just make sure you hit the gx button on the xonar driver, this will trick the game to run eax 5.0 through software processing.. and its amazing lol

I just edited the bottom of my last post... Seems as my bass is only coming out of the sub :/ Its supposed to be full bass on the front and sub a bit on the rear and none on the center speaker

GX button seems to eff up my BFBC2 in terms of sound :/

Yeah.. I fixed that manually with a mess of wiring and splitting through my receiver and speakers.. but I don't recomend that.

If you turn on the prologic chip it should fill the sound.. but might "change"the sound

I think i have completely F'd my system up now.... Restarted LR And RR and center speakers wont respond to the mixer to adjust the sound of each speaker...

Really tired now...

Ok got the LR and RR back, Some reason it was set to 6 channel

/E Still no bass in the main speakers... Why dont sound cards have a complete reset button, Everything to stock settings would come useful
