    As per title - how to enable the subwoofer in Windows 10 using the XFTI_PCDRV_L11_2_40_0018.exe Creative drivers?

    Normally I would have used Creative Console Launcher to do this, but the above driver doesn't install this.

    the Titanium HD support page has a newer version

    Creative are really bad at releasing new versions of their software.

    I'll probably put up a package of all the latest xfi software on mega later.

    Is it possible to somehow integrate some of PAX's tweaks into the driver for my Creative X-Fi Titanium with Creative's latest drivers?

    I only need Console Launcher to activate the subwoofer and the latest XFTI_PCDRV_L11_2_40_0018.exe driver to work with Windows 10 1809. The PAX tweaks would make things sound nice again.

    PAX is just a tweak to default mixer levels, you can do it yourself.

    I don't know what levels it tweaks or where to find what it has changed, so I'm not able to make these adjustments.

    thanks i downloaded 2.61.53 version in titanium hd support page, but it don´t install here, give me a message saying "you don´t have a supported product detected", maybe it installs only for x-fi titanium hd and not normal titanium

    I have the auzentech xfi home theatre hd and after much frustration i finally figured it out. use revo uninstaller (google for an older free version) to uninstall all creative stuff and delete things from the registry. then restart your computer. , Then download the drivers from here http://bit.ly/2JUbZ1A
    Next install the xfi home theatre hd from zip file from the link after extracting ofcourse, use a free program called 7zip.
    then restart your computer
    then download files from Daniel k's blog for https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4veZnyFbxW4bExZcFlnZEFHT2s/view
    this includes the software files that you need, DO NOT install the drivers from this package.
    choose custom installation and install only the software you want, I installed, creative console launcher, auto miode switcher etc, make sure you un check the drivers. as you do not want this to update what you already have.
    once thats done, restart your pc, and click on creative console launcher, and everything just works!!!!
    i installed it on the latest windows build as of June 23rd 2020. I had it working before but software updates including dolby atmos software in windows etc broke it a year ago, I didnt bother reinstalling it. Until now.
    Good luck!!!
