Looking 4method or software 2increase the volume of front speakers

Q: Looking 4method or software 2increase the volume of front speakers

I am looking for a way or software to increase the volume of the front speakers from a 5.1 speaker system. If I use Windows Volume Control Options and test the 5 speakers all sound great and equal. However, if I watch a movie or play a game the front speakers are barely audible. I am aware that the movie or game itself may have a lot to do with it nevertheless I would like to have control over this.
My sound is ''AMD High Definition Audio Device'' coming from the AMD catalyst set of drivers.
I looked up "Audio Manager" or "Sound Manager" but the result are of software, that in my opinion is wrongly named, being that they are music file managers and have nothing to do with sound/audio.
Thank you

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Looking 4method or software 2increase the volume of front speakers

AMD High Definition Audio Device from AMD Catalyst is NOT your PC sound device. The AMD is for HDMI audio.

You audio, according to the specs on the ASUS site, is VIA VT1708S 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC

Unless there is a VIA control panel with separate level controls for the different speakers you are stuck with what you have. Many video players and games have audio options and that is probably the best you can do.

I'm getting now sound out of my speakers when I try to use them for music or games, but I get sound when I test them in the sound panel, but only get sound out of my center and subwoofer. In the sound panel, it says my two front speakers are connected to the green FRONT speaker jack, even though it's plugged into the rear jack. I've tried different drivers and even a regedit found on this forum. I continue to have no sound and I don't know how to fix it.

Hello NordVind, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

As you have searched the Forum, you already know some sound systems are not being supported properly. There is a quote in this thread: A bit dated but worth reading that says there are 26,000 custom audio drivers, so it will take a while for more to be added to 7.

The place to start is to identify your specific audio chipset. So we need to know if you are using a PCI card or onboard sound. A good place for this info is the manufacturer, like the motherboard manufacturer to id the audio chipset. If you need help with this, post back with what you are able to find out.

I have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS card and AVIA 5.1 surround sound. Ive ran speaker tests to ensure everything is plugged in correctly and all speakers work and are where they should be. The problem is only the front two speakers work unless I run Half-Life 2. Ive tried putting in a DVD and running it on Cyber DVD (with the 6 speaker setting enabled) and that doesnt work. Ive also ensured that my speaker settings are set on 5.1 surround sound. Could somebody please explain how to get my sound to come out of all my 5.1 surround sound. Thanks.

Update:
I downloaded a plugin for Winamp that allows it to output 5.1. The only difference this made was that now the center speaker has sound as well as the front. The rear still do not work

I have a moitor with built in speakers, I use them in my front speakers port on my built in sound card. I have a Sub which plugs into the back port, and has 2 satellites plugged into it.

This effectively gives my 4.1 surround which sounds nice for a system thrown together.

HOWEVER
whilst games and music etc play through all speakers, Internet sounds and system sounds do not... They only play through the monitor (front) speakers...

Is there anyway to amend this?

Thank-you In advance.

Hello,
I've connected the front audio panel output for my headphones. I know that when doing so the rear speakers should be disabled automatically but in my case they still work. I hear the sound in both the front headphones and the back speakers in the same time. How can I fix the problem so when I plug the headphones in the sound of the speakers is disabled and only is activated after I unplug them?
And also there is an annoying noise from the earphones when I plug them in even when not playing sound. (They're perfectly fine on stereo-systems so It's not a problem of the earphones but rather of the front audio connectors).

* I have an Asus motherboard and I've configured AC'97 pin definition according to my manual.

Hello, I'm new and wondering if i can be helped on this.

I have an audigy sound card with altec lansing 4.1 speakers. I want to listen to music, watch dvds, and all i ever seem to get is sound from the front 2 speakers. I have looked at the creative speaker diagnostic and set it up for 4.1 use and have run a sound test and all speakers work properly! i've then made sure this is synchronised with control panel (quadspeakers). However when playing audio -cd's,other audio..it only plays from 2 speakers.

any reasons why? solutions?

thanks
 

A:audio does not play from all speakers, but only front 2.

Stereo encoded audio is intended to only play out of the front channels, no problem there. For multichannel playback you need a multichannel source, e.g. 3D Audio supporting game, multi-channel audio (Certain music formats, not CD) & in the case of DVD your DVD player needs to support 4.1 output.
Beyond that, if sound test works fine there's nothing wrong.

A:Speakers Only Work In Front Jack

Welcome to BC
The speaker jack in the back is built into the motherboard. The jack in front is connected by wires to the motherboard. Since the front jack works, we can assume the sound card/onboard sound is working and the speakers are OK. I'd probably try to update the audio driver, just to make sure. Either the rear jack is damaged or the front jack could be wearing out (depending how it is internally connected) If you're comfortable in doing it, try disconnecting the front jack and see if the rear works. You might have to move a jumper to do this. I'll have to look at their manual to make sure

Hey all!

I am trying to get my headset (which plugs into the Front-Green-Out) to work along side of my speakers (which plug into my Rear-Green-Out).

Both are being recognised and both work, but not at the same time. That's because in the screen where you manage your Audiodevices you can only have 1 "standarddevice", which it uses to play the audio.

Is there any way to have more than 1 standarddevice? (or another way to make both work at the same time).

EDIT:
By the way, for anyone using the same motherboard as me: Asus is not supporting it anymore =/. I use the P5K-EPU sounddrivers. Also, if you want the front jacks to work you have to set them in the BIOS to AC97, not HD-audio.

A:Front headset and speakers at the same time?

I know on mine when I plug into the front panel it disables my rear inputs. I don't think there is a way to do that using the same driver. What I do though is use a sound card for my speakers/monitors and use the onboard for my headset. I have WMP set to my sound card so I can listen to DVD/music through my monitors while gaming through my headset simultaneously. Helps when the Mrs is scrapbooking and wants to listen to music.

I have a Dell E510/5150 desktop with Dell 5650 speakers and Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (WDM) sound card running on Windows MediaCenter Edition SP2. The speakers are setup 5.1. Original problem was no sound from L/R front speakers, after doing many checks and download latest SB drivers and finally changing out the sound card (all per Dell Tech support) I now have faint sound from L/R front speakers. Center front and L/R rear have good sound running Creative speaker test.

I can play midi and wav files but when I play mp3 I get popping static on all speakers until I unplug the L/R front speakers from the bass box. I have replaced the Dell 5650 per the field tech and Dell tech. I still get the faint sound and static as described above. I have performed a Repair Reinstall of the Microsoft windows just before the sound card change.

Dell tech requested next step is to do PC restore. I really don't feel that PC restore is the only thing to try - I have moved a large number of programs from my old computer and would have to reinstall all MS updates. Any suggestion from anybody??

My PC operating system is Windows XP Home SP3. Shortly after buying the PC I bought and installed a Philips Sonic Edge sound card and a set of VideoLogic 5.1 Surround Sound speakers with subwoofer. At the time I was a PC novice and my oldest son did the installation. All worked well until approx two years later when I reformatted the OS. After that although everything else works as it did I had a problem when testing the speakers via the Philips interface.The front left and right speakers have a reduced volume in comparison with the Rear L/R and Centre speakers even if I have the fader control at the top thereby cutting the sound from the rear speakers they seem to have the same reduced volume at any position. I mentioned this to my son at the time and he reckoned that the front speakers had just lost a bit of their efficiency. I believed this until yesterday.

I use VLC player for all audio and video playback and was playing about with the VLC preferences settings. Later I noticed that the sound on playback was very loud even at only one or two on the volume slider. I quickly realised that I must have done something to the VLC audio settings and on checking found that I had accidently changed the default audio output type in VLC from default to Win32 Waveout Extension Output. I changed it back to default and saved it then exited. That evening I watched a film and it was in the normal surround sound ie 5.1 speakers.

From what I've read this is simply a result of having the front audio panel set up as AC97 instead of HDA. 5 wires versus 7(or is it 9)

Hello all,
I recently built a computer over the summer and have got most of it working. Unfortunately, I am still having a problem with the sound for this system. I am using my motherboard's (Asus A8N5X) on board sound, and the back ports work perfectly thus far. The problem is that my case (NZXT Guardian) has front ports for headphone/microphone. To connect the internal wires for these ports to the Line out_L and Line out_R, I have to take off the jumpers that connect them to BLINE_OUT_L and BLINE_OUT_R. Doing so disables the back sound ports. From talking to others, it appears this is a common problem with many soundboards/cases. How have you guys gotten around it? Or alternately, does anybody know where I can buy an internal audio extension wire that has one male end and two female (or a jumper) end? Thanks for any advice!

Hi,

I?m having a problem with the front panel audio of my new Antec One case. While the headphone jack plays sound fine the problem is that it doesn?t detect when headphones are plugged in and does not mute the rear speakers. Jack Sensing is not working at all and Realtek HD Audio Manger marks both the headphone and mic jack as permanently plugged in.

I?ve tried re-installing the audio drivers many times and can verify that an HD Audio header is plugged into the mobo and not an AC?97.

Anyone else have any ideas what the problem could be? This is a very minor but rather annoying problem. Thanks.

Hello, I'm Artekis. A year ago, sevenforums helped solved my BSOD problem! Now I'm back for help on audio problems.

I recently noticed that the front audio ports of my Windows 7 PC do not work properly. I plugged in both speakers and my headset, and the right side of the speakers do not work as well as the right side of the headset cups.

The back audio ports work perfectly fine for both my headset and speakers. As a result, I can safely say that it's a problem with my front audio ports.

According to the Sound tab, I have VIA HD Audio, which is integrated audio on my ASUS motherboard. There also seems to be NVIDIA High Definition Audio in the sound controllers section of the device manager. According to some people on Sevenforums, it's used if you want to use a HDMI cable to connect audio from my PC to the TV? Is this correct?

So what should I do to get my front audio ports to work? I will gladly provide any information that can help solve my problem.

Thanks,
-Artekis

Edit: Just a little update, but the front audio panel worked perfectly fine from both cups of my headset for a couple of seconds after I restarted my computer. But it quickly switched back to the left cup working only. However, the mic jack in the front doesn't work at all.

I've been using these speakers for a while now and they worked perfectly, few days ago they stopped functioning properly - now only the front left/right speakers play, the center, back left, and back right do not play.

Everything is plugged in, I've triple checked or more.

Any ideas? All drivers are sufficiently installed.

Oh two more things... the bass is feeling a bit pathetic too...

AND I have an application (sound card driver really) that can test each speaker, and when I use it and click the back left/right/front center speaks they work fine.

I have set my winamp, all my games, media player, even under sound in control panel to 5.1 sound and its just not using it.

Also is the audio you are trying to play stereo or 5.1? If it is only stereo then it requires using speaker fill to get sound from all speakers.

A:REALTEK|using front speakers through rear output jack - possible?

Easiest way would be to use an external speaker switch, since you do not want to use the conventional method with the front panel headphone jack.

With an external switch you could select either the speakers or headphone.

I don't know what sound you have but the only option is RealTek audio is to mute or not mute the speakers when a headset is plugged into the front panel headphone jack. There's no way, that I know of, to route primary audio to some other jack.

So the plastic plug on the frontpanel headphone input is loose and now i cant connect my headphones to that jack.
so now i have to connect to the backpanel jack. but the volume is 20 percentage lower than the front...
i have all volumes up to 100.. WTF is this about????? so annoying.

A:Why does front panel audio input has louder volume than the backpanel audioINPUT

Maybe one of them has a higher resolution than the other one... Just a guess. I just noticed that sometimes if it isn't as loud than in a different port it sounds worse too.

A:no volume from speakers

I've had a problem like this before. My problem the first time was that was that one of the bars in playback control were all the way down.(If you click on the speaker in your task bar then open volume control.) The second time was when i was in the same thing in playback control click on advance in the volume section then uncheck the digital output only then my speakers worked. Also if that dosn't work try reinstalling your driver for your sound card.

Volume starts decreasing on its own while watching a video or anything, when I pause the video and play it the volume increases and again starts decreasing. Works alright with headphones though. I already experinced one such problem in the past where you guys asked me to uninstall some software and asked me to install some other. Please help.

Hello HP support community. I have an HP Pavilion 14-al061nr (ENERGY STAR) laptop and it has this problem where over a small period of usage the sound goes out. People have said to disable enhancements at the enhancements tab, but there is no enhancements tab on my laptop. I have installed the newest driver, but nothing has changed. Someone please help this is really getting on my nerves. But essentially there is no enhancements tab, and nothing happened when I got the newest drivers.

It could be a heat issue causing a component to work intermittently. Often times in electronics something will work when it's cool but stop working when it warms up or will not work when it's cool but then start working when it warms up. These can be some of the hardest problems to diagnose. It's not necessarily overheating, just normal temps causing things to expand and contract. It could be caused by a poor solder joint.If your drivers are good then it could be a hardware issue such as what I described above. If that's the case the fix is to replace the motherboard. Is the laptop still under warranty? If so, you would contact HP about it.

Hi, Try the following. Download the Realtek HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp75501-76000/sp75983.exe When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the Realtek device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

rrmenon The forum Mods have split off your post into its own thread -- so there is no information here regarding anything about the problem, or what has been done to address it. You can start by following the instructions in the link for finding your detailed product number:  Finding Your HP Product Model Number | HP® Customer Support Also, what version of the OS was your PC running before you did the Win10 Upgarde? Once we have that information, we can begin.

When I connect speakers to my laptop the volume is initially high but then reduces automatically within a few seconds.

My laptop is a TOSHIBA Satellite L50-C-1FQ

This is problematic because even if I increase my volume to 100%, I still only get 3 bars maximum when I connect speakers as per the 2nd image attached. How can I prevent this?

Thanks

A:Low volume when using external speakers

Exactly what type of speakers are you using? Are they "computer" speakers or something else?

I have had my HP Pavillion for just short of two months with no issues. Last night while watching a video I noticed that the sound lowers on it's own until its almost completely mute. It doesn't matter is I put the sound full blast or not, it will gradually lower itself until I can hardly hear it. This doesn' happen with headphones, though. It is just the system's built in speakers. Advice would be appreciated.

Hi TSG,

Was wondering if anyone else had this problem. I have a Dell Dell UltraSharp 1901FP Flat Panel with Dell AS500 Sound Bar .
About a week ago the volume from the sound bar seems very weak even when turned up to max volume. Just started out of the blue, I've checked the sound/audio and everything is set to high.
These are 3 yrs old. Could the sound bar just be dying out?
thanks
