Sound Blaster Settings: 5.1 (rear, sides, sub disabled) + SBX ON
Im using a Edifier HCS2330 2.1 system. Also should i enable Full Range Settings for all channels using this speaker? Thanks alot
Dont disable any speakers in windows control panel because you will be missing channel information from the windows mixer. That is if you want virtual surround from SBX.
In Sound Blaster, list your speaker setting as 2.1, left and right and sub. Then enable SBX.
You are messing up your sound with your current settings and losing channels/information. If you dont want virtual surround from SBX, then just 2.1 in windows and 2.1 in Sound blaster with no SBX.
The full range option depends on if your subwoofer/control box for your speakers has a crossover/LFE filter? If it does then just enable full range in both windows and sound blaster and let it decide, thats what I do for my receiver to my speakers. However if it cant filter LFE then enable full range in windows but not in Sound blaster and let it decide before going to speakers.
Do your speakers take a 2.1 signal or is it just a line out left and right?
