i've been looking for a solution to the audigy2's shoddy bass output for a while now, and as there are several other threads about all over the place i'd like to know if anyone's solved it. for those of you unfamiliar with this issue, when using the analogue jacks, there's almost no output on the .1 channel. i'm using winxp sp1/via4in1 v4.51/latest non-beta creative drivers v18.104.22.1680 with the analogue&digital outputs going to a sony str-de597 receiver (analogue C/CR/SUB connected via 4-pole mini->rca cable). all the connections are properly attached (speaker connections verified by the receiver's built-in tester, and cabling connections tested via creative's speaker settings tester). the creative EAX control panel has never been installed, avoiding issues that come from it. the discrete input on the receiver itself works fine, if i plug the center channel into it for instance, the bass is there. in both the speaker calibrator setup and the speaker test application, when the sound gets around to the sub there is a very, very weak noise with the volume in the drivers at MAX, but with a real source like a game or video, there's no discernable output. the weirdest part is with the sub hooked to the card directly, you can get really bad sound out of it by turning on bass redirect in the drivers. however, when connected to the receiver's discrete input, nothing comes out even then. not that that's really a problem since redirecting the bass makes getting actual .1 sound rather pointless, right? but it shows the thing works to a degree, anyway. so howabout, has anyone actually gotten their AU2 to function properly?
