Windows 7: Playing sound through two audio devices simultaneously

Playing sound through two audio devices simultaneously

Hello all.
I have Bluetooth speaker that I have hooked up to my computer and is working properly.
I would like to also use the laptop speakers simultaneously to create a kind of surround sound system.
Is this possible? I have found many threads saying that it isn't.

When I use the audio device settings it just changes between the 2 outputs, it doesn't seem to allow me to use them both at once.
Is there any freeware that allows for this type of configuration?

If the bluetooth speaker connects via a transmitter connected to the 3.5mm jack then its possible, otherwise its not.

None that I know of. The one default audio playback device is a Windows limitation. It can't feed two different sound devices at the same time.
