Hello, and Thank You for choosing JustAnswer.comMy name is ***** ***** I am reviewing your question now, please stand by for 1 or 2 minute for reply.
Where did you find such an article about the FILL SPEAKERS fix?
IM not so sure I agree with it
Anyways.....rear speakers are part of the 5.1 surround sound protocol.
The rear speakers WILL ONLY EVER GET SOUND if the signal is 5.1, AND there is sound that has been embedded as a REAR sound.
The reason rear speakers (and surround sound) even exist, is to give the audible feeling of 3 dimensions.
So, If you were expecting to hear the SAME sound off the FRONT and REAR speakers.....That is NOT how it works.
The fronts are the MAIN (stereo sound which is a Left and Right) all MAIN sound comes froim them.
Now if there the audio stream is encoded in 5.1, then anytime a sound that is supposed to give the feel as if it were behind you......only THAT will come from the REAR speakers.
So, the TESTING of the speakers is just t make sure they are connected and working.
The test does NOT simulate 5.1
You Tube is not 5.1...its just Stereo (just Front Left and Front Right....thats all)
Like i said.......the ONLY way to get the REAR speakers to output sound is for the AUDIO stream to be encoded in 5.1....AND....that the audible effect for a rear audio source is needed within the audio to give the spacial feel.
you are wrong. that IS how it works.
5.1 audio can be sent to the corresponding appropriate speakers/chanels, or stereo can be sent to all channels.
That's sound systems 101.
Here is the article you asked for:
Yeah you can have stereo sent to the rear as well.....but that is NOT THE INTENDED USE OF A surround sound.
YOu can send all 5 channels out the same speaker too.....again not the intened use
What is the connection between the Audio system and the PC?
is it a stereo output?
is it SPIDF?
Is it optical?
I understand what the uses of sound systems are.
That was not the question posted.
Please stay on task.
understood.....im here to help.....dont want to do anythign but my job here.
I know your technically inclined.....so i willkeep my questions straight forward
connection to audio system from PC?
I am looking for the setting you asked about (Fill SPeakers)
once i locate.....i will inform you.
you have Win 10?
1/8 jacks at rear of motherboard.
okay, the Mini Jacks on the back of PC.....how many did you use?
Green is the Stereo output.
Black is Rear speakers
Orange is the Sub
Some other thread suggests that speaker fill may have actually been replaced with "DTS Connect" which seemingly does the same thing.
Open up Realtek audio manager, head into speaker configuration and enable virtual surround.
or did you do that already?
I assume you have UNinstalled the audio drivers, and REinstalled them?
YOu should ALSO UNinstall and REinstall your Video Card drivers. Or atleast update them.
As the Video Card does have to handle the audio stream when a VIDEO is being played.
Furthermore, Go to your windows sounds settings Under playback, select speakers and go to their properties Under enhancements, deselect the Disable all enhancements checkbox.
Another solution (that has worked for others) is to change the format to 24/96 in the settings. Go sound settings, select your device => Properties => Advanced tab then select 24bit, 96000Hz from the dropdown.
okay...best of luck....i have to opt out.
Hi there, my name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist.
I see you are having issues with the rear speakers playing.
Have you tried the following?
control panel / hardware & sound / manage audio devicesclick on the "speakers" iconthere should be a tab with your sound card on it, click on itthen click on the settings buttonchange from 2 speakers to 5.1
If that doesn't solve it, might I ask the make and model of the speakers you have?
I find nothing is irrelevant when it comes to troubleshooting, and have come across enough oddities in my 12+ years of troubleshooting to not rule anything out. That being said, I wish you luck.
Do you have VLC player installed on computer...
Request you to perform this and update status
1: Play music in VLC player
2: On VLC Menu, Click Audio > Stereo Mode > Select Stereo
Check sound now
Can you share the speaker system model?
Have you tried this:
1: Right click Sound icon from Taskbar > Click Playback devices >
2: Right click 5.1 Speaker system > Click Configure Speakers > Select Stereo > Click Next > Select all Full Range Speakers > Click Next > Click Finish
3: Play music and see it works
