    Latest audio driver download & installed directly from mobo maker?

    Does audio setup in Windows reflect your equipment correctly (looks like just 2 speakers to me, should be 2.1)?

    there's no 2.1 channel option in realtek hd audio manager or in windows.

    Actually subwoofer sounds at 100% volume but it's not that much amplified as it should be. it's even can't shaking my pc table.volume and bass control knob on woofer is full and computer volume and media player volume is full. actually I test 4-5 2.1 speaker of friends of mine and they also not sounds good as they shoud be.
