Soundstorm And X-530's

I am using an Abit NF7-s R2.0 with the integrated Nvidia Soundstorm. Well, today I got in the Logitech X-530's, hook them up, and was getting no center channel and very little sub. Played with the connections, and nothing. Make sure that the sound is set to 5.1, and nothing. I finally went in to the soundstorm controls and did the test. All speakers sounded off fine. But still no center and little sub on music and games. Then I see options to "create center channel" and "create LFE channel". Should I have to create the channel, or is it just compensating for a dead channel? For what it's worth, it does work when I create the channels, but it still seems weird.

Everything seems to work as long as I have the create center and LFE channel options checked, but that is supposed to only be neccesary for 2-channel sources. Without these 2 checked, I get no sound throught the center or sub even on known 5.1 sources (games, movies). Is the built in Soundstorm not 5.1 compatible or what? I was under the impression that it was.

My Soundstorm has front L/R, rear L/R, and center/sub. 3 channels. Only 2 really seem to do anything. The center/sub channels have to be created, and that's not really 5.1. Anyhow, I am picking up a SoundBlaster Live card this morning to see if there is any difference. I'll let you know.

You should be able to do that. But I tell you, I picked up a cheap SoundBlaster Live today and it sounds ALOT better. I was starting to think that these speakers sucked, but they sound excellent when they get a good signal. They should sound even better with that Audigy 2 zs. Enjoy.
