Realtek HD Audio Manager + 2.1 speakers - not working right

  1. I just got a brand new Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system for my laptop.

    These speakers have amazing ratings, and my friends who have had them before said the ones they had sounded amazing for them, and yet they, like me, notice the following problem in mine.

    The bass is great, but for some reason my system seems too bassy. Like I know I can turn down the subwoofer, but it's as if all the low/bassy sounds are always drowning out the higher/vocals, which always seem to be a bit dulled down.

    I have a Lenovo Y560p laptop with Realtek HD Audio. I was thinking perhaps I have this sound problem because it doesn't let me select 2.1 for my settings, and it's stuck on "stereo". I've tried downloading and installing drivers from Realtek's website.

    stereo format is fine for that klipsch. make sure you do not enable any bass boost, equalizer or other sort of enhancement features in the Realtek HD Audio Panel.

    or, go to control panel, sound, select realtek, go properties, enhancement tabs and ensure all is turned off.
