Speaker Setup for Creative Sound Blaster Live! and Sound Blaster Audigy Cards 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.
