Hi everyone,
When I pulled out my USB headset a few days ago. After that I didn't have any bass in Spotify. When I click on the subwoofer in the Realtek HD driver it does play the sound and then my sub does work. In windows audio, in control center, when I test it my sub works too. But when I try it on Windows Media Player, Spotify, a game, YouTube NO. There is no bass at all...
Does anyone know a fix. I think I have had this before but I do not remember what I did then...
Any ideas?

Try reloading the drivers for the headset. Good luck!

What do you mean? I have used my headset multiple times yesterday and today... I guess it already reloaded it then?

That isn't what I mean, get the latest drivers for your headset (what make/model are you using?) from the vendor and re-install them.

Please, clearly, describe your hardware setup. Initially you only indicated an issue with a USB headset (what make/model?).

Check the realtek panel(Realtek HD Audio Manager) for an option called "Enable Bass Management"(it is right under speaker fill and sub/center swap). Try switching it off if it was on.

EDIT.

It is also under enhancements from the audio properties(Playback devices -> Your Speakers -> Enhancements) in Windows.

THAAAAAAAAAAAAANK YOU NUKEMASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The program is Dutch on my pc so it is called 'Laagbeheer', direct translation would be layer manager.
THIS TOTALLY WORKED. I probably tried out these options the last time!
Thank you so much man!

The option prevents lower frequencies from hitting satellite speakers that can not take it, but most computer speakers and even stereos can take the bass from the satellite channels and redirect it internally.

I am surprised that with full range speakers enabled it still does it, but ohh well.

I use it for night mode sometimes :)  cuts the bass quite well.
