Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers
I set up my new logitech x540 speakers and:
1) Apparently I have to use matrix mode for ALL music since there isn't a media player out there that supports 5.1 surround sound and music is recorded for two speakers.
2) THE BIG ISSUE: While I'm listening to music on matrix mode the rear speakers sound very distorted. I don't experience this with classical music but on more percussive popular music.
3) Occasionally I'll get crackles on a song
Any idea why this is happening (esp #2)?
My PC info:
Sound Blaster Audigy MB Audio (integrated)
My computer is supposed to support up to 7.1 surround.
Thanks for the help!
I installed my soundcard which is the sound blaster SE audigy but when i try to test the sound i see that it does not sound separately.What i have to do to make them sound saperately when i'm testing it ?

One easy fix to the problem of distortion in rear speakers is (if you do not have a higher-end sound card) to buy a three way quarter inch splitter. Simply plug the three quarter inch cables coming from the speaker system into the three female ends on the splitter and then plug the single quarter inch jack into your computer - this sends the same audio to all of the speakers.

The problem with the rear speaker is in mp3 itself not in the system. if you play from a original cd it will sound nice suroundy in matrix mode.

Okay. first off. onboard sound does not support 5.1/7.1 even though they claim to.
if you have a soundcard. your in luck. just set the channels to 2
speakers to 5.1 and disable Virtual 7.1 surround. also music plays through all the speakers when i use itunes to play them.

X540 is designed to have a 5.1 setup. if you have enough plugs in the back of your computer then i suggest you plug in all of them and configure it to 5.1. matrix mode changes the 2 back and 1 centre speakers to work if you dont have 5.1 configured/set up. this is sort of dodgey because i think it only plays sounds under 1khz so thats probably why you dont hear singing in a song and only some sound.

Some sound cards have a function call "stereo expander" or something like that and will play sound through all the channels

"my rear speakers are only supporting the music but not when a singings come in from a song .. and it isnt as loud as my front speakers when it is the same watts ( 2 x 7.4W )"
your rear speakers are just "surround" speakers so maybe thats why no vocals go through there.the rear speakers only sound softer because u mainly hear the centre speaker (which ur suppose to) the centre speaker acts as a "link" to the left n right channels

Well i temporarily found an alternative...if you can try to disconnect the orange cord from your PC(center/sub)...see if thats better....i mean just leave it hanging there...just a suggestion though...but it worked for me...
