At first in my old computer, it worked fine. their were only three auido jacks and it adjusted very well on all speakers to where all the sounds worked from all the right speakers. (even the subwoofer with it's woofing sound) 

Now i have this new pc with an msi gaming motherboard which has 6 speakers port. however, non of the rear speakers fit in them so i connected it on the subwoofer like before, (since it has the ports for all the speakers) but for some reason the configuration is all messed up. the rear's don't work. and during testing, sounds that's suppose to only emit from the center speaker emits to the right rear?

Sounds suppose to emit from the sub woofer ends up occurring on the left rear?

It's like the center and rear is completely ignored! and the sub-woofer just plays through all of them instead of itself during testing.

The color connection has been checked  already and it's all correct.i also tried to switch the cords around but no dice.. rears sounds are still not emitting. (hell for some reason when i disable the rears and switch the cords around i get the subwoofer and center speaker working.. but connecting the rears in the ports don't work period.

 im at a lost. 

i wish their was a software where i can adjust what sounds emit to what speaker in my room. 

[also to be honest i set my rear speakers on the side of my wall because i have no way to put the two speakers on the rear so im hoping is their a way to adjust these speakers to which the rear speakers are now side speakers?]

Are you sure you haven't mixed the rear and side? RS is rear and SS is side. Are the drivers up to date?


If you want to use side speakers and not rear, set it to 7.1 surround and then deselect the rears.


The fact that all the ports are black on MSI boards annoys me. (I have a 970) You have to either know which is which or read the labels. Difficult when there's hardly any space behind the PC.
