    Ok, first. Turtle Beach Montego 2 sound card is almost better than the soundblaster live value cards. if u run a Audio WinBench, most of the scores are better with the Montego 2 sound card. And, to further help you solve this problem, tell me the Model number of the speakers you are using.<br>

    Also check to see if you have not "mute" on sound card inputs like the mic and Line in. Since they produce static sounds.

    distorsion on the line isn't your case i think...<br>
    and the SoundBlaster Live is know for it's quality... (the value edition isn't so different)<br>
    <br>
    i sudgest to hook the speakers to something else and see if they are broken or something<br>
    and maybe you can check configuration of the sound-card... the SoundBlaster is known for it's many options

    Ah, the sweet spot.
    You might check the output options in LW3. You might have it set to headphones. That will make a live sound bad. If not, then take your live out and hit it with a hammer. That should fix it <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"><br>
