I just got a subwoofer today and I'm trying to hook it up to my pc tower along with my existing speakers. There's one standard audio out jack at the back, and one at the front that's unused. So I tried hooking them up to the front one, but all that happens is that the speakers will stop functioning and the only sound comes from the the subwoofer (only low bass). I think this is because the computer believes I'm plugging in headphones so it automatically disables the speakers.
I am using the stock onboard sound on my computer, the mobo is NAGAMI2. The software to control the speakers is Realtek HD Sound effect manager.
I am just wondering is there anyway to disable the computer from shutting off the speakers when I plug the subwoofer? Thanks!!
theres a reciever connected to my computer right now i just got some converters for the wire, i just tried it out one day and it worked it may not be conventional but it works. i haev 4 surround sound speakers and center channel speaker on the reciever aswell as a powered sub its an average home therter system but its just on my computer.
i bought a sound system for my comp..altec lansing.....it came with 2 small speakers and a sub woofer...i have aditional speakers that came with my home sourround sound can i hook them into the back of my comp and if so how,i have 5 empty input holes in the back of the tower...HELP
I believe that the reason your sub doesn't work when you plug it in the front is because in order for the front audio jack to function, you must remove the jumpers on the motherboard audio connector depending on the board. Some boards give have the option to use both and others don't. Read your users manual. I will have to agree with the last post. Buy a multi-channel sound card.
