Is it possible to upgrade a 2.0 speaker set to 4.0

hi, i currently own the Gigaworks T20 series II, and have just purchased the Gigaworks T40 series II. I am just wondering if i also buy a sound card, possibly the Creative Fatality. I have Two Questions, Will i be able to add the T40's to my computer, and play music out of all 4 speakerS? ( im pretty sure the answer is yes) My other more important question is, will the 4 speakers just play as two stereo sets, or will i able able to split the speakers to create a 4.0 set, rather than have then have the speakers play the exact same thing. ( more like a home theater system, so it can play the music based on location)

  1. You can split the speakers without issue; thats probably the cheapest way to get surround sound: Use multiple 2.0 speaker sets.
  2. plug one to the green jack, and the other set to the blue jack... simple.
  3. well the plugging in im not worried about i figured if i plugged it in it would work, my main question is, will it send the X sound to Speaker set 1 and X sound to speakerset 2 (where X is the exact same sound), Or will it send sound X to speaker set 1 and Y sound to speakerset 2. Meaning if i watch a movie, i dont want set 1 to play the exact same sounds as set 2, i want to have set one play the front audio, while pair two is playing either the side or back.
  4. im also assuming i can buy a separate subwoofer, and hook it into channel 3 have have it play only the bass right

    also since im already in this thread, is the soundcard good enough for my use, should i get a better one?
  6. ir going to send different channels to the front and the rear, u will need a sound chip(card) that can provide stereo upmixing post processing effects. like dolby digital - pro logic, or even the virtual speaker

    so that means that the fatality card wont work, whats a good sound card that can do what im looking for. i was looking at the asus D2x sound card cuz it had a feature i like, it allows me to put my speaker setup in a virtual room, is there something less expensive than $200?
  8. im sure the fatality card has dolby digital live software.
