4) uncheck full range
5) go to sb control panel and select headphones, everything sounds great
6) click on the speakers icon to change to speakers and it defaults to 5.1 and my audio sounds like garbage (my speakers are 2.1)
where did i go wrong?
Like I said in the other post, make sure its on stereo setting not 5.1 in the z panel. There is a drop down.
Then when you toggle between headphones and speakers it will always go between headphones and stereo. Its a quick switch that remembers the last speaker type you used.
And unless your gaming turn off sbx surround when using the speakers and listening to 2 channel sound.

Stock drivers don't have eq messed with, that is best for gaming especially with positioning. More bass equals harder to discern details.
It doesn't mater what you select for full range in windows panel, it will default to limited again when windows restarts. Creative's registry setting on boot always sets it off. As well as trying to set it to stereo, windows will revert it back.
They are supposed to be the ideal settings for the features in the z panel to work.Edited by djinferno806 - 11/15/13 at 9:10pm
