I have a pc set up that I use to watch streaming Netflix and other videos on the web. The PC has 7.1 outputs on the mobo. My front three speakers are active monitors that I have plugged in directly to the mobo outputs with RCAs. My question is how do I get a matrix output similar to pro logic 2 from my mobo so basically voices only come out of the center? I enabled the windows version of this but it is crappy and sounds like voices are coming out of all three fronts equally.
Also, windows only has basic bass management (small or large with a crossover freq). I need to get double bass from my mobo so that my active mains and the subs overlap. Any suggestions on how to do this? I don't want to use a receiver. I want the signals to come from the mobo.
