No bass from Audigy 4 (5.1)


S

For some reason I'm getting almost no bass from my Audigy 4 soundcard when
set up with a 5.1 speaker configuration. I have Trust 5.1 speakers.

I have a set of 5.1 speakers that have both a stereo mode and a 5.1 mode.
When its in 5.1 mode it uses three 3.5mm jacks from my sound card (and there
is no bass) and when it's in stereo mode it only uses one (and there's lots
of bass).

I have selected 5.1 speaker configuration in my sound card audio setup. The
surround sound aspect of the speakers seem to work perfectly.

I've narrowed the problem down to two possibilities:

1) I have some sort of configuration problem with my Audigy 4.

2) I have set up my sound card wrongly (e.g. wires incorrect).

Any suggestions as to what the problem is?

One of the jacks will be the Center/Bass channels. It's possible that they
are backwards from what the speakers are expecting. Do your soundcard
drivers allow you to swap the outputs for these?

Might just be a faulty cable from the Center/Bass jack as well.

You could try enabling bass redirection on your Audigy 4. 'tis in there
somewhere.

You'll have to fiddle with the bass redirection frequency. You may also find
that even with the bass redirection that your bass is low. They only fixed
this problem on the X-Fi series with a +15 dB subwoofer boost.
