I received a SW 8MK2 Pioneer sub-woofer for Christmas this year. However, it does not always work. I have a Razer Tiamat 2 and Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II speakers attached as well, both work properly so far as I can tell.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA Z97N-Wifi
CPU: Intel i7-4790k @4.00 GHz
GPU: GeForce GTX 980
Memory: 16.00 GB RAM
From my motherboard: All 5 connections used by the Razer Tiamat 2. I switched out the Center/Sub port connection with my sub woofer connection to get it to play the bass sounds. However, this has not always worked.
From my Tiamat pass through ports: Creative speaker pair (Green port). Plugging in the sub woofer to the Center/Sub port pass through does not work at all.
My sub woofer does not always function. Additionally, when it does function, the Creative speakers always play the simultaneously play the low end sounds as well as the highs and mids. So when the sub is working, the Creative speakers and the sub are playing low end sounds. Which I neither want, nor what is optimal.
So far, I have just switched the Center/Sub port on my motherboard between the Tiamat headset and the Sub woofer. It worked, but was far from optimal. However, as I stated above, it didn't always work... Sometimes the sub does not play sounds. I have checked that it is ON, yes. To my knowledge, all audio drivers are up to date. And connections, physically, are working. I also know that all speakers are working. This includes the sub, as when I plug it into the side headphone port on my PC, it works normally, playing the low end sounds.
But, plugging my sub into the pass through of my Razer Tiamat 2, never works.
I tried getting a 3.5mm Y audio splitter to plug into the GREEN audio pass through on the Tiamat in order to route the lows to the sub and the highs and mids to the Creative speakers. However, I got the wrong cable and it did not work.
I would like to be able to play mids and highs on my Creative speaker simultaneously with the lows from my sub woofer.
Then, switch back to my headset routing all sounds to my headset with the switch located on my Tiamat control set.
