Windows 7: How do i turn up my center speaker to hear voice better?

How do i turn up my center speaker to hear voice better?

I just bought a logitech x-540 and the same thing is happening that happend on my old one. It sounds great but when im listening to music or watching a movie i can barley hear the peoples voice. How can i make voice go through all 5 speakers or turn up just the center speaker? This is really getting annoying.

Also i have a Rocketfish 5.1 gaming sound card.

Thanks

Ive tryed that and changed around just about everything and it still sounds the same... Could it be my sound card? Its was a fairly cheap card so im thinking that might be the problem.

Nope theres nothing to change individual speakers. How do i setup a soundblaster?

I've been researching your components for about an hour--from what I can determine--you will get better sound and better control over it by using the integrated VIAź VT1828S that's already part of your Motherboard.

here's a review of it:

try unplugging your speakers from the Rocketfish and connect them to your standard audio jacks on your motherboard...if onboard sound is disabled--enable it and/or install the drivers.

Thanks man! I took back the rocketfish and im using the onboard audio. Do you know of any good "settings software" to configure it? Not sure if your familiar with my system but there is something called Matrix. Which turns 2.1 surround sound into 5.1 (for some reason the side speakers wont work) so i have to turn on the matrix but if i do that there is no voice, like peoples voices on movies and music. Also there is no voice on my headphones if the matrix is on or not.

This surround sound deal is driving me crazy, ive spent 200+ dollars and it still wont work right. Im about to sell it all on ebay and go back to my 10$ usb speakers from walmart
