So I just purchased the Logitech x-540 5.1 speakers and have them hooked up to my Windows 7 computer. When I go into the control panel and configure them through windows, everything works fine. But when playing music and videos, my subwoofer is basically non-existent, and it seems the 5 speakers are just playing what the sub should be playing.
I went into Realtek's software and tested each speaker and when I test the subwoofer, it was coming out of the center speaker. I have checked all the jacks and they are connected correctly. I tested a different cord for the sub/center and the same thing occurs. Not sure why when testing in Windows own configuration the sub works fine, yet doesn't with Realtek.
I also updated Realtek drivers to the latest version and nothing has changed. Any ideas?
Odd. On PC audio, the Sub/Center speaker come out of the same connector, so it almost sounds like the channels are being flipped for some reason...
You have an option anywhere to flip the center/sub channel around anywhere in the Realtek control panel?
Yeah there is an option to flip the center/sub but there is no difference when it is in use. I have tried it with 5.1 in realtek using center/sub/rear, and 7.1 and disabling the side speakers, and it still occurs.
