Surround sound using two different 2.0 and 2.1 speakers on Asus onboard soundcard


Oct 13, 2016
I recently got a 2.1 home audio system that is connected to my pc to onboard soundcard and i am about to buy a 2.0 system but how do I do that. I mean how do I connect both of them at same time and get 4.1 surround sound???also I have a GPU installed in case I need a sound card

Zotac GTX 750ti
Core i3 4150 3.4 GHz

youre using realtek mobo sound controller? there should be a 'rear out' plug next to the main out plug., put it in the rear out plug and those speakers will be rear speakers.

You don't need a sound card as the on-board Realtek sound chip supports 8-channel audio to give you full surround sound with the correct number of speakers positioned properly around the room.

Using two speaker sets instead of one integrated set however will probably involve a small amount of work to sort out the jackplugs, that's all.

Then the rear speakers to the dark blue (or the only jack that is not pink or green) jack the set realtek to quadrophonic.that'd be all
The pink and blue audio jacks are mic and line level inputs and can't usually be used as outputs.
I think you are going to need a soundcard with the correct audio outputs.
If the 2.1 system doesn't have a separate subwoofer input then you would connect it to the lime green front audio output.
Set the PC to 4.0 if you can. That will send bass out of the front audio output.
The other 2.0 system connects to the black audio output.
