No sound from woofer

I have connected this system with creative 5.1 sound blaster card. All the other speakers are working properly but there is sound from center speaker and no sound from the sub woofer. Also the center speaker is not detected in the speaker test of the card.

You may have to enable the additional speakers by entering the Creative software, which should have come with your sound card. On my system I left click on the Creative volume panel and the choose console launcher. After entering the Console Launcher you can change the speaker setup.

These systems sense the speakers and you cannot use a Y connector on them. You need to get the individual speakers connected to the card and see how it performs. Also check the device manager in windows to see if it show any errors and last but not least what is the motherboard, the operating system?

Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya,

Creative Sound blaster cards are plug and play cards, they generally installed on PCI or Expansion slots of your motherboard,so there is no question of cables.First check your speaker and audio properties of your PC.If it is correct check your speaker audio pin make sure that pin is firmly inserted on your sound carder line out.If it is also correct,remove side cover of your pc cabinet,then take out the sound card and reinstall on another PCI slot of motherboard.I think it solves your problem.if it is not may be problem with your Creative sound Blaster audio card. I think it helps.If you have any problem post a feedback we were glad to assist you

Is this connecting to a sound blaster audigy 2 zs or xfi soundcard? or a motherboard onboard soundcard/ aftermarket Other than creative?

If connected to the creative card odds are the wire is bad. get a new one

If connected to a generic the wires for the speakers are proprietary and you have to go get 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables to hook it up
