View Full Version : Sound

Hi all,

Just got a cheap Creative Inspire 4.1 4400 surround speaker set
for playing Thief and i have to say this adds value!
I was just wondering, if its possible to crank up the volume
for the rear-speakers? In my opinion the sound from the rear-speaker is lower than from the front-speakers...

Any suggestions?
Thx in advance,

Did you install some software for your sound card? You mention your new speakers but did not tell us what sound card you have. I have a Soundblaster Live. In the Creative->Soundblaster group is their AudioHQ application. In that app, you open the Mixer applet. You will find balance and fade controls. You want to fade the front (i.e., move the slider to provide more volume to the rear). You might also want to run the Speakers applet to make sure you have 4-speaker mode selected.

Right, i did not notice the fader slice for front and rear in the
mixer panel. Thanks for that info man. Just what i needed.
My soundcard is a Soundblaster Live Value.
