Sound System 2.1 and 5.1 Tags: New Build Speakers Systems Last response: August 30, 2010 5:33 AM in Systems Share kolkim August 30, 2010 1:33:52 AM I'm understanding that the 5.1 and 2.1 means 2 speakers and 1 sub to 5 speakers and 1 sub. Can I get a 2.1 setup, and then add my 2 speakers and make it a 4.1? More about : sound system angel0fmars August 30, 2010 3:21:44 AM You probably could if you dropped the center speaker. I haven't had any personal experience though. 505090 August 30, 2010 5:33:32 AM if your sound card supports that configuration then yes Can't find your answer ? Ask !
