This article will show you how to test surround sound on Windows 10. It may not be easy to set up and test surround sound speakers with so many speakers. However, Windows 10 includes a useful built-in test program to assist you in configuring it. Here’s how to make the most of it.
How to test surround sound Windows 10?
To begin, right-click the speaker icon in the taskbar and select Properties. Select “Sounds” from the drop-down menu. Next, navigate the Playback tab and select the surround sound output device from the list. This is commonly referred to as “Speakers” on many PCs. Finally, click the “Configure” button to configure your selected device.
The “Speaker Configuration” window will appear. Choose the configuration to test from the list of audio channels. For example, if you have 7.1 surround sound connected and want to try it, select “7.1 Surround.”
Then, from the drop-down menu below the channel list, select “Test.” Each speaker in the configuration will play a test chime one by one, with each highlighted in the figure as it does so. To stop the test, click the “Test” button again, which will display “Stop” as the chimes play.
Click on a speaker in the diagram on the right side of the window to test it. A chime will sound when you click a speaker. This may assist you in determining whether your speakers are properly positioned.
Once you’ve finished with your sound equipment, you can hit “Cancel” or close the window using the “X” button in the corner. Then, from the “Sound” menu, select “OK.” You can also click “Next” and follow the wizard’s instructions to tell Windows which speakers are connected and which aren’t.
