Noob question here, guys. Is it possible to control each speaker on the G75V individually? When I test the speakers on the Via HD Audio Deck the subwoofer is way way louder than the other 2 speakers...which makes all the sound come from behind the laptop (I actually thought the other 2 speakers weren't working until I tested them with VIA HD)

you can control the volume of the subwoofer via your realtek driver utility. you can play around with the volumes and sound settings like environment and equalizer to get it better.

This thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?20220-SOUND-settings-my-sound-settings-on-G75&country=&status=) will show you how to adjust the VIA HD Deck so that you get better sound.

FWIW, he has VIA audio HD deck, not Realtek driver utility. Not sure how differently they function, though. :)

If you have the VIA Sound card the link I posted earlier in this thread will walk you through all the settings. If you have a Realtec card your on you own

Maybe I read something wrong, but it looks like you have to use the specific media player mentioned in order to turn off the subwoofer. Am I reading that correctly?

yes you read that wrong C_man did use that player, however I just use Windows Media player. Below that he shows you all the settings in the VIA HD Deck. In the speaker section you can just bring the slider down to 0. His equalizer setting work pretty good for me, there are a couple of others that have published their Equalizer setting at least one is in the sticky's. If you turn off the Bass speaker completely you will just sound very tinny. VIA Drivers 600 and above all work pretty good, I think I stopped at the 900 drives myself. I think there up to 1400 or 1600 by now, I haven't heard anyone say that any of them fix the sound problems with this series of G notebooks. Everytime you install an updated drivers set you have to go through the whole set up again.

Figured out what I was doing wrong. Moved the slider for bass filter to zero. Then would use the speaker test thing, and it would still play all three speakers, so I figured the sub wasn't off. But when I play something through any media player, the subwoofer IS turned off. And you're right, sounds terrible. If they had just placed the "subwoofer" smack dab in the middle instead of off to one side, these problems wouldn't exist in the first place.

Yes the sound system on these NB suck. But most of us use external speakers systems or head sets anyway, its just occasionally that I use the speakers anyway. You can get it sounding pretty good with the equalizer setting and turning down the base speaker I just looked at mine its set for 40% 100% left and right. the 600 and above driver set actually do make things better. I installed the 800 and 900 and really didn't see any difference so have just left things the way they are. I don't think drivers are going to fix these issues.
