Logitech Z506 5.1 speakers - Can hardly hear rear speakers!

Postby Leprekaun » Sat Dec 08, 2012 2:19 pm

Hi all. I can hardly hear the rear speakers on my Logitech Z506 5.1 speakers. I know they're working because I did sound tests (each speaker test which all worked) but I still can't hear them in any games, or at least they're not loud enough. I know they're working because when I put my ear right up to them, I can hear it producing sound but like I said, it's still very quiet compared to the front speakers so is there any way to solve this? I've looked in the sound control settings in my Creative control panel and I can make the front speakers quieter but the rear speakers are still quiet, I can't change the actual balance of sound to go to the rear :? so anyone know how to solve this?

There should be an option in your Creative sw to increase the volume levels of your rear surround speakers..... sorry I don't own your sound card so not sure the exact place to look, but it is there somewhere in your Creative SB sw that came with your sound card... just dig around there ....

You may to set the drivers up so that your speaker setup is correctly set.
