Can I add a 2.0 system to a 5.1 setup for my computer speakers?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I completely understand that this may be a stupid question but I just picked up a X-540 for very cheap and I'm wondering if I can purchase a 2.0 or even a 2.1 system and use them as side speakers for 7.1.

Right now the X-540 is plugged into my 7.1 sound card with the inputs green(front), black(rear) and orange(center/sub). There is an additional port, brown(right to left), which is of course used for 7.1. The X-540 system I have connects the 4 satellite and the center to the sub and then from there it connects to my sound card. If I were to purchase a 2.0 system and plug it into the brown port would they act as proper side speakers? Would they function at all?

The sound card I have is an Auzentech X-Raider 7.1 and the computer speakers I have are Logitech X-540.

As long as you set the system sound settings to 7.1 then it should work in a 7.1 system.
