Help with Logitech Z906 & Creative ZXR not all speakers work

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey all

Really appreciate you comming to look.

I have this speaker system hooked up to that soundcard, when I do the sound test, the back 2 speakers and sub dont play.

This is using black, green, and then a converter that converts green into 2 red and white( left and right)

I have also tried plugging in optical from soundcard to speakers. This works fine, but when I do a sound test, all bloody speakers play.

I really hope im doing something so simple, ive been here 4 hours trying, hope I can get some help

Cheers

Not knowing the specifics about your particular items, I had an issue with my Creative xTreme Card one time, turn outs that in my Creative Audio Control Panel under speaker's I didn't have the correct speaker setup configuration and it was causing a similar issue as yours, might want to check that.

Nubby Out.

Not sure, sounds like the convert's your using on the front end maybe causing an issue however using optical, am I understanding you are getting sound correctly or not on optical only? If sound is coming out correctly in all aspects except on a channel test I'm not sure what to tell you. Have you tried a round of Pink Floyd to test the separation beyond using the channel test on creative's software?

ok ill try explain it again in basic terms smile.gif

so I have 5.1. and these new speakers dont have a green port, they have a green into a left and white port. and then I have the black and orange, which are front or sub whatever.

so when I test left and back, front and sub, nothing comes out.

When I take these out, and do optical from the soundcard to the speakers, all work. But its not right, if I test left speaker, all speakers go off, this happened even when I test every other speaker.

Even in games, the surround just isnt right, things behind you shouldnt be playing in front, but I can hear some in front.

Its a very very very stange problem.

Only thing I can think of is that im just doing it wrong?

Also I cannot see anywhere to say 5.1 when in optical mode, if I can do it this way, or thats how it is and theres nothing you can do, im fairly new on optical

WellI the only suggestion I can think of at this point is make sure your front channels are in the front channel ports and vice versa, make surethe left plugged in left channel etc. Should work since you say they are working in optical just turned around. As far as quality optical is better than RCA any day of the week. I hope it pans out for you, I would imagine that setup would sound nice.

Just thought of one additional thing to check on the speaker wires connecting in the sub, make surr no bare wire is touching which could cause bleed over in the channels.

Ok another st range thing.

I plug in just 1 of the speakers, so no sub, no front no nothing, except the left rear.

When I do test on every speaker in the software, every one of them plays through that. It shouldnt work like that, it should be saying not plugged in therefore not using that audio?

I have Logitech Z906's and on the subwoofer at the top there are three ports marked [.....1.....] . I have the audio jacks plugged in (from top) Green/Orange/Black then the appropriate ports in my Creative soundcard and it works perfectly. You also have to select the correct "Input" on the Z906 control pod.
