[Mandrake 9.1] 4 speakers & sound quality problem

I have used the "search" function and solved the problem with my sound not working by selecting (in XMMS) aRts driver for Output...

But the problem now is that only 2 speakers are functional... the other two remained silent. I have SB Live! Player + FPS1500 (Camdridbe soundworks).

The other problem is the quality of the sound... when I turn it up the quality is so poor...

Help me! ;-)

I can't help you with the 4 speaker bit, but I may be able to with the sound quality. The input to your FPS1500 speakers may be being overdriven, causing distortion. I have noticed that with Linux, the sound output from my sound card (SB Live! 5.1 DE) is much louder than in Windows. Try lowering the sound source sliders (ie, PCM, Wave, CD, aux, etc) in your mixer and compensate by turning up the volume control on your speaker system.
