    try to use the equalizer built into media player or winamp. If your sound card supports it, you might be able to adjust the bass/treble level from the volume control program. However, 20 watts won't give you impressive bass.

    Putting the sub in a corner of your room will greatly enhance the bass output

    Thats easy. Assuming that you are using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, clcik on start---->All Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Information.

    In the system information program, click on "Components", which will display a list of devices installed in your PC, then click on "Sound Device" which will then display your sound card info.
