3.1 Speaker Setting



             A lot of PC users have 3.1 speaker systems, but are not able to reap the benefits in later versions of Windows edition. Windows 8.1 onward, we have sound settings for stereo, quadraphonic, 5.1 and 7.1. When the 3.1 system is set to stereo settings, the sub woofer would have sound, but wouldn't function as it would normally. Bottom line, No BASS!! Do you want to know, how to set a windows 3.1 system in Windows 8, 8.1 or 10?

Well the answer is not that difficult. Just follow these simple steps.


  1. Right click on the Sound icon in the system tray(lower right hand corner).
  2. Click "Playback Devices". You will see the Sound window, as below:
  3. Right the audio output device. i.e. "Speakers".
  4. Select "Configure Speakers".
  5. A configuration dialog box will open up with the title "Speaker Setup".
  6. Select "5.1" and click "Next".
  7. In "Customize your selection", uncheck "Center" and "Side pair". The "Subwoofer" option should be checked.
  8. Click "Next".
  9. In the Full-range speaker selection, select  "Front left and right",only and click "Next". Uncheck the "Surround speakers" option.
  10. Click "Next".
  11. Click "Finish" and Wallah!
It's Done. Enjoy the amazing quality of a 3.1 speaker system with a fully functional sub-woofer.
