Hello

I have problem here with my Sound card..

I have an Asus z170 Hero here and Creative 5.1 speaker's (very old ) and Logitech G230 headset.. all work fine and no problems until i decide to upgrade to the blaster Z ..

Now the sound on my headset is Awesome.. its way better than the built it sound card but the problem the Creative 5.1 speaker.. the sound very very away from me..

even some movie no sound at all.. what is the problem ? very old speaker with no Surround support ? I connect the speaker's to Center panel jack on my sound card and i try all jack but all same..

is there anything i can do to disable Surround or i need new speaker's ?

Edit : my speakers

What I find works great for my Stereo setup is to disable SBX enhancements in the SB control panel ( THX Surround and Bass ). I leave Crystalizer on. Granted my speakers are not surround but it might help fix your problem.

Regards

Are you plugging each speaker into its respective jack, or all speakers into just the center channel? I would review the documentation to make sure you've hooked up the speakers appropriately. It sounds like the speakers aren't getting enough power out to provide good sound, which can happen if you have too many speakers plugged into one line out port... Just a guess!

It looks like line out 1 is the front L/R channels, line out 2 is the rear L/R channels, and line out 3 is the center and sub channels.

Well there's your problem right there, each jack is supposed to be for 2 speakers. Not only that, but each jack puts out a sound profile specifically for those 2 speakers, so you're not getting the power each speaker needs, and you're only getting 2/5ths of the sound profile. Sounds like you need new speakers

I would recommend a good pair of bookshelf speakers... for a computer, 5.1 doesn't do a ton. A pair of good speakers, plus maybe a decent sub, will be just fantastic compared to a mediocre 5.1 set.
