Soundblaster not pushing my subs...
I just completed my carPC install the other day and since then i've been trying to get my sound ironed down....i've got a soundblaster running 5.1 going to two amps (a 4-channel for my speakers and a 2-channel for my subs)
I've got three 3.5mm to dual rca converters that I got from radio shack plugged into my sound card. The one runs the front speakers, the second one runs the rear speakers, and the third one running the subs.
I know that the third 3.5 mm port is supposed to be for center/sub....so you have to leave one of the RCA jacks unplugged and only use the sub channel...I checked both channels and am sure that I am using the correct plug (subs work at a really low level on the correct one and dont work at all on the other one)....I have a y splitter running into this rca jack that I plugged the left and right channel of my sub rca wire into.
The problem is this...the subs barely bump at all...i've messed with the sound card's software, but can't figure it out....the subwoofer level is at max and i've tuned the equalizer. I can hear the subs working, but probably at 10% of what they used to be when I had my HU running them.
Could this be because my headunit put out more power for the sub channel? Or is it that my amp needs to be retuned to accomodate the change from HU to soundcard?
