Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers not getting 5.1 sound

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys

I have a pair of logitech x-530 5.1 speakers, but i cannot seem to get the full 5.1 sound.

Ive tried setting my speakers to 5.1 and also even more but only sound comes out of 2 of them and the sub. 2 being right and left as 2.1 speakers are, no right back, no left back and no front centre.

help?

If you're listening to music, most music is stereo so that is how it's supposed to play, some soundcards and/or speakers can allow you to make stereo play through 4 or all 5 of your speakers but there isn't much point to it, just leave it alone. Now if movies and games still aren't using 5.1 then you've got a problem, check your sound card settings and be sure they're set to 5.1 also.

for all the speakers to work while listening to music...open the creative control panel and set the speakers to 5.1 then set cmss to stereo surround. When playing games set cmss to "cmss" or "cmss2".
