View Full Version : [SOLVED] 5.1 Speaker Setup, Only Front Speakers Working?

April 7th, 2012, 12:07 AM
Hey All,

Just hoping to nail this issue on the head, must be something am overlooking.
So basically I have a 5.1 Speaker Setup. 2 Front, 2 Rear, 1 Sub and a center Speaker. The problem is just the 2 front speakers work.

I have tried going into System Settings > Sound

I have changed the Analog Stereo to Analog 5.1 Surround Sound and when I select test only the front 2 speakers work.

Any ideas ?

Have you run alsamixer to make sure all the levels are turned up?

just run alsamixer and got these results :\

It looks as if they are not turned up, how would I go about fixing that?
