Do you use ALSA? I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think you're supposed to type "alsamixer" in a terminal (read the man page on it first), then change the entries for your other speakers. Press [Esc] to exit. Then, (this part I'm sure about), type "su -" into your terminal, type in your root password, and type "alsactl store" into your console to save your settings.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
