Question about Dell WL6000 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Front and rear speakers do not work

I just bought a new dell XPS computer and I have a Creative SB X-Fi sound card and the dell WL6000 speakers.  I can not get the front and rear speaker to work only the left and right speakers.  I ran through the troubleshooting material and I can get a sound from each speaker when I test them however when playing a movie I can only get the right and left speakers to work.  I'm sure this must be something simple but I'm missing it.  Thank you

Re: Front and rear speakers do not work


My connection dropped for a second and lost you on the live session. Thereafter I keep on getting errors.

In any case, have you tried:
1. disabling the built-in sound in your CMOS/BIOS?
2. Verify that your Creative drivers are all installed correctly with no red or yellow marks in your Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers;
3. Are all the connectors/plugs wired to the right jacks. Iknow the sub operates wirelessly but all others are still wired.

Post back pls how things are so we can figure other things out.

Good luck and kind regards.

I had sound last night and then there was none. I have an x on the bar below where the speaker is located. the no audio device installed and re-installed it. So now what next?

This problem actually happened to me. A lot of people have this same problem and find that downloading the appropriate sound or audio controller fixes the problem. You can do this by searching for 'Dell WL6000 sound driver downlaod' or 'Dell WL6000 audio controller download'. This should fic the problem. However, for me, is did not. So I did a bit of reasearch on the internet, and found that actually, there is no way of restoring sound on the computer; not even re-installing windows, or a new windows package. I tried this, but it didn't work. This is becazuse once the sound is gonefrom the computer, it is permanantly gone. What you have to do, is purchase a new sound card.
Hope that helps,

What's the best sound card?

Sound Blaster is certainly a good name when it comes to sound cards, they've been around forever. If you're looking for quality audio and full use of your 5.1 speakers, SB live 5.1 will do the trick.

Check out Dell WL6000 Setup and Quick Reference Guide -

Try re-synchronize the wireless link. If there is still no audio form the rear speaker, check if speaker mode in your computer is set to 5.1 channels. Click Start Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices. Under Speaker Setting, click Advanced and select 5.1 surround sound speakers.
NOTE: The rear speaker will not have audio output if the source audio does not have surround sound.

Rear speaker not working

If you did the 5.1 sound test and the rear speaker works, sometimes you have to see in your software speakers settings,probably you need to change to 5.1 speakers
