View Full Version : Z640 Rear speaker
Ive done some searching and nothing would come up for some reason so ive decided to make a thread. My Z640 Speakers I just got today are really nice And i love the sub. But my Left rear and right rear wont work for some reason.
hey mem the same thing happened to me. i automaticall realized it was the scard (soundcard) it just doesnt support 5.1 sound. and read this dont go to over board with your new speakers like i did. http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=307112
Alright thanks Ill take a look at the that thread
*Edit* Your thread has to do with a sub problem I feel you ya
Mine has to do with the back speakers not working at all Im not sure if its the setup or what? I have a DFI ultra infinity board. And my center speaker only works when i hit matrix.

Either the amp or the soundcard...what kinda soundcard do you have?
# realtek ALC650
# AC'97 2.2 S/PDIF extension compliant codec
# Supports Microsoft® DirectSound/DirectSound 3D
# AC’97 supported with full duplex, independent sample rate converter for audio recording and playback
# S/PDIF-in/out interface
# 6-channel audio output
In the Nforce control pannel It has an equilizer graph and It shows all the speakers except the rear ones

In the Sounds, Speech and Audio devices part of the control panel you have your Speaker Sound Setting set to 5.1 surround sound right? Just a thought.

Im not sure how to work onboard sound, but make sure its set to 5.1 and make sure the input cables are in the right places!
Yeah those are both right, I just matched the colors, tried switching them also stilld idnt work
If been fooling around with it and its still not working

Your amp is probably shot
Right out the box? Both rear speakers hold on lemme swith the front speakers with the back
Yeah the rear speakers work if i plug them into the front speakers.... And the center speaker dosent play

Wierd, then it must be your onboard sound. Have you DLed the latest nforce drivers or whatever chipset your using?
I updated everything, turns out winamp only usess 4 of my speakers instead of 6.. is there a 5.1 setting for winamp?

For Winamp I think in options then preferences then output?
So everything works fine with say Media Player? Have you set Windows to 5.1? If it is still on the default Desktop theme for speakers then they will never work until you set it to 5.1 surround sound.
THanks everything works now

LOL dude this was in winamp?! I thought it was games n stuff....lol
That's funny. did you test w/ something other than winamp?
I thought you meant everything as i was going down the posts... :bang head
Yeah it was in games.. but I updated drivers and they work now i think.....

Thats good then
Yeah, HTanks for all the help and sorry for the annoyance.
Err back.. Everything else works in 5.1 except winamp. I set the prefrences in winamp right. (I think) but It still uses no rear speakers. DivX plays right and so does windows media player
SO basically winamp is the only program not using the rear speakers

My counter-strike 1.5 only uses 2 speakers. But when I play UT 2003 It uses all of them. In winamp it also only uses 2 speakers. I have the soundstorm sound, and the same speakers...hummm
same cs and tfc are only using 2 but divx and windows media player uses all of them. winamp only uses 2 and AIM does also. Before I did a system restore (long story) like a day or 2 ago All the speakers were working perfectly
