Hey guys,

I just built a new computer using an MSI Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard which uses Realtek HD Audio driver. I'm using a Creative Inspire 5300 speaker setup which is 5.1 surround sound, however I am not using the rear speakers on it. Also note, I may have had this issue before but can't for the life of me remember the resolution.

After connecting the speakers to the system, the center speaker doesn't work. Instead of receiving center channel audio, it's solely receiving subwoofer type audio. While playing games, this makes playing virtually impossible especially in games that utilize the center channel (IE communication voices in Mass Effect: Andromeda). 

I've already tried using the swap center / subwoofer option, but the subwoofer is receiving the correct audio it seems. Center just receives a low "bassy" noise.

Has anyone run into this before? I haven't been able to really find a fix online that works for me. I've already tried messing with the cables, "attempting" to tell the jacks that the speaker is something else (though I only get one option, so that doesn't work), and moving the cables to different jacks to see if that helps. Center / Subwoofer is definitely in the center / subwoofer jack.

Thanks!

Hey Nikos, thanks for the reply. I was able to resolve the issue, and it was a problem with the physical wire running to the speaker itself. Back when my cat was more of a pain, he chewed through the wire on that speaker so I had to resplice it and fix it. For some reason something must've happened, so I respliced and replaced all of the tape on it. It seems to be working fine now.

Thanks!
