Audigy 2 ZS

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
......any info would be great...
I have a computer dedicated for audio play back only, library of mp3 etc. files.
my audio card is an Audigy 2 zs ..I use a 3.5 to dual rca jack from card to run the main amp and speakers, works great.
I also have a subs and a separate amp that I need to hook up to a low pass (sub)output


any Idea how to do this? Thanks

Use a 3.5 to stereo rca and connect to the sub/center of your sound card. One of the rca ends will connect to the input on the subwoofer.

the problem I'm having is this sound cards hookup info doesn't show where or how or what jack. It only shows 4.1, 5.1 and 7.1
also I tried already and did this but it seems that all the other jacks are dead..

is there a trick to activating the other jacks ?

I'm not familiar with that card but I'm sure you can "activate" the other channels in the control panel for the sound card.

I was using a 3.5 stereo to RCA cable

There is no such thing as a 3.5 surround to rca cable.

The card was designed for the old analog surround speaker setups that Creative used to sell through their Cambridge Soundworks/Creative Labs speaker brand so you'd have to configure the outputs from the card to your hardware to resemble something like one of those setups. Another option is to use the CMSS (fake surround sound processing), which is what the current Creative 5.1 speakers require. The best way to get 5.1 is with the digital i/o drive and toslink output but that probably isn't an option for you.
