Windows 10 - Logitech Speakers Z533: Bass blocks other Frequencies

Posted 27 February 2017 - 09:14 AM

I've got a little problem with my new Speakers. I don't know if the problem would happen with the old ones as well because I've got a new Motherboard (MSI 970A SLI Krait Edition). The Speakers are Logitech Model Z533.

So the problem is that in Windows 10 when bass comes out it blocks (lowers down) other frequencies for some reason. So if a song has a lot of low frequencies, these will make the higher frequencies sound lower and the lower frequencies will try to demolish your house.

How am I supposed to fix that? I have the Realtek HD Audio Sound Manager, but it doesn't seem to fail at anything since even if I quit from it the problem continues. Or maybe it's supposed to be kept open in the background so I don't really close anything in real who knows.

Before I try anything else, do you have any advices?

I am assuming you checked the wires to make sure they are snug, in the right holes, and no breaks, correct?

Outside of that I don't know why an RMA is akin to "Kill yourself". It's a new board, most likely in warranty, etc. RMA and get a better one.

RMA means that I won't have speakers for some time and I suppose that "time" will take a long time. It's not like I got that thing from a local shop, I got it from an E-Shop and probably they'll be like "Nah, I can't help you". Most unpopular online shops are not the best when it comes to supporting. So No Speakers + Probably People making me angry.

Yeah, all the wires are okay. If any of the wires was not okay you would understand it immediately. I mean it's not like a speaker or the subwoofer doesn't work. Just an output problem when there is some bass on the sound.

The problem is that when there is bass on the sound it lowers (it doesn't mute them) the volume of the higher frequencies, so it makes it difficult to listen to them.

Wait.. what? Is it the speakers that are new or the motherboard? You would be able to test speakers by using anything else with the right jack. Phone, mp3 player, another pc, etc.

I don't understand your fictional bizarre narrative.

Well, it differs from country to country.

Both are new. So I'm not entirely sure what's going wrong. I think I should buy a SoundCard anyway.

I tried the speakers on my phone a minute ago, the problem seems to vanished. (Tell me a song with some great bass + higher frequencies in it, can't think of something better than B.Y.O.B)/>

I'm gonna try on Ubuntu as well ........ (ETA for Update 5 minutes).

Update:
Yap. In ubuntu it works well. Conclusion? The same as always ... Windows suck.

Aghh ... I have to find the solution to that. All my games are in Windows and I want to have a good sound output.

There are no other drivers for this device. Logitech doesn't have drivers for Speakers, and Realtek is the only Sound Manager Driver I found so far and they were installed on their own anyway (by Windows Update).

*sigh* Yes - external speakers would not have drivers. I would go to the motherboard manufacturer's site, plug in your model, go to the drivers, and get the latest realtech drivers presented.

wait ... Why is it normal for speakers not to have drivers? I just don't have any idea ... don't take this the wrong way.
I mean all the external devices have drivers ( keyboard, mouse, camera, wireless card ) why speakers don't?

Oh and also, they're the latest drivers the ones I have. I know it because I installed them via the CD + MSI gave me an app called "Live Update" that updates all the programs and makes my startup even slower. (disabled it)

They are output devices. Do you install drivers for your bookshelf stereo? Nope. New subs in your ride? Nope.

Did you actually _check_ the version number of your driver you installed versus the one on their website?

No, but aren't bookshelf stereo speakers supposed to be standalone while PC speakers are not? :/

No, but I just supposed they're the newest because it checks via "Live Update" software, which supposedly that they didn't screw it up, it should download the newest software to my setup.

Why would you think PC speakers are not just stand alone? hint - they are.

Go check the actual driver version number of what is on your machine and what is on their website. Let's stop assuming. :^:
