I have the z506 configured as 5.1, but rear speakers unchecked as I am only using left, right, center and subwoofer.
In game sound comes out of center fine, usually dialogue and things in front of me. The speakers have a 3.5mm headphone jack. I plugged in headphones and sadly anything center speaker related is not playing. It looks like windows is still sending center and the 506 is not redirecting to the left and right. In Windows settings if I uncheck Center, then that audio comes out left and right as usual.
Is this a limitation on the 506?
Is there an app or way to save a setting with center enabled or disabled as needed and toggle without having to go into the Windows setting and doing it each time?
