Hey guys,

here are what i'm working with:
audioengine a2+ speakers
polk audio psw110 10' subwoofer.
realtek HD audio supremeFX

I connected my speakers to the green output and my subwoofer to the orange output on the sound section of my motherboard. when i go into realtek HD audio supremeFX, and i put it to 5.1, I can get the subwoofer to work.

I'm just wondering is there anyway to make the subwoofer to work if i were to use just stereo because right now i'm not able to get any subwoofer sound if i just select stereo.

thank you all in advance.

Go into Realtek sound manager speaker configuration and select 5.1 then untick the rear and center speakers so that only the front and sub are ticked and this should give you 2.1.

if you cannot get a software solution working, its also possible to Y the line to both the speakers and subwoofer. you can use a low-pass filter on the subwoofer input to only allow low tones or if the subwoofer has one built into its back panel you could use that.
