I have taken a set of Boston Acoustic Digital BA7500G speakers that came with a Gateway and tried to get them to work with a SoundBlaster SB0410 24 bit card on a different computer. I can only get sound out of the sub and the front speakers. The owner of these systems is convinced that these speakers only work with the soundcard included in the gateway (also a SB I believe).
I have never heard of a set of speakers being tied to a specific sound card. Can anyone verify this?
I think the speakers are digital, and the soundcard is digital and is configured for digital output, but we can only get sound out of the front speakers and the sub -- no rear.
