About Me

  1. Hey, I just got a new pre powered sub to go with my Dell Xps 8300 and its Speakers, but the sub only makes noise when testing it in the audio manager. So for a while ive had the Dell Ay410 speakers, which worked great. Then I decided I wanted to upgrade, starting with a sub, and working towards a powerful 7.1 system for my pc, so i bouth the Polk audio psw10, and hooked it up to my computer. My sound card is the Sound blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio, which has jacks on the back for : l/r (My dell Ay410s) sl/sr C/sub (My Polk Audio PSW10) R/Rl So i plugged in both my devices and went to the configure option, bringing up My speaker set up, from which i selected 5.1, and pressed test, and it all worked fine, except the rear speakers which i dont have yet, so i went in and turned off the rear speakers, and pressed test again. My sub made no noise, but the Dells did. I then turned on the rear channels again, and the sub made sound when it was supposed to. So how do i make it work in games, and in itunes/spotify? My hardware: Dell ay410 Polk Audio PSw10 Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio (Not sure which exact one, but the outside looks identical to the ports on this one) Rca male to 3.5mm male (connecting sub to pc) No idea what motherboard im on So anyone got any helpful ideas?
