My old Pentium 133 computer came with very cheap, small Lo-Fi stereo\nspeakers and a Acer sound card as original equipment. I purchased a quality\nYamaha set of speakers with a subwoofer but no bass came out of the\nsubwoofer. I suspect the sound card is not programmed to pass the low\nfrequencies as why bother with such cheap tinny speakers. I want a\nmoderately priced modern day sound card that will work with the new speakers\nand subwoofer and not take up too much processor speed. I run a lot of\nstreaming audio and that seems to use up a lot of CPU resources. I also run\na lot of amateur radio slow scan TV programs that require a resonably good\nsound card. Can anyone recommend a good sound card.\n\nF.J.
