Your PC comes set up to produce
sound through two speakers and,
depending on the speakers you
have, a subwoofer too.
If you have a 4 or 6 (5.1 channel)
speaker system, follow these steps
to get proper sound from all
speakers.
Connect all speakers to the correct
audio connectors on the subwoofer
and the PC.
Refer to the manufacturer’s
documentation included with your
speakers.
Important: Speaker setup cannot be
changed from the Control Panel.
You must select speaker setup in
Creative before you select it in
InterVideo WinDVD.
