5.1 audio in FSX: how do I know if it's working?

Recommended Posts

A couple days ago, I installed a set of 5.1 speakers for my computer (Logitech X-540). So far so good. Can't say, though, that I've noticed a big difference in FSX. Two questions, then:1. What should I listen for?2. Is there something I need to do to enable 5.1 sound in FSX? In Win XP control panel, under Advanced Audio Properties, "speaker setup" is already set to "5.1 surround sound speakers." My onboard audio (Realtek HD) supports 5.1, and I have confirmed that each speaker is getting its proper surround sound output. (And before anyone says, "Get a dedicated audio card, I already have one on order, X-fi XtremeGamer.)
