    5.1 Speakers-Sound Coming Out Rear And Front?


    My speakers work fine. Not sure how long it's been like it. I have a Creative sound card.
    But basically, when I test or configure the sound settings the speakers work, but when it comes to the front right speaker, the sound also comes out of the rear right one, too. No idea why? Yet, when I test the rear right one, that works fine and just comes out the one. 🤔

    The same thing is happening with the left ones, too. When I click to the test the front left speaker, it also comes out the rear one. But when I click on the rear one, it doesn't come out the front! Any ideas why?

    To check the speaker system and configuration, disable the SoundBlaster and enable the integrated audio for testing. Properly connect the speaker system to the Integrated audio, set the speaker type as 5.1 and then test the speakers to see how they react. This will tell you whether there is a problem in the speaker system or the SoundBlaster. If it works OK with the integrated, it doesn't say what is wrong with the SoundBlaster but it shows where the problem lies. If it is still the same with the integrated audio, it points to a problem in the speaker system.

    I connected the speakers to the onboard audio via the motherboard and tested it. It seems to work properly when testing. Could mean it's a Creative driver problem?

    Could be a driver. But first thing, reseat the SoundBlaster card as I've seen this fix a lot of SoundBlaster problems.
    Reseat - with the PC powered off open the case and remove the SoundBlaster card then reinstall making sure its fully and correctly seated.
    Power back up and see if that helped it.
