    i just bought logitech x-530 5.1 speakers for my iMac computer. only the back 2 speakers seem to be working, does anyone know why the other 3 arent working? is there a setting on the mac that i have to change so the sound plays out of 5.1 speakers or something?

    How are the speakers connected to the iMac? What sort of iMac is it? If it's conencted via an Optical cable the iMac may be capable of driving the speakers in 5.1 mode, but I thought that Macs required external 5.1 amps to do this (the speakers may have it built in though).
