    Can only use EAX 2.0? Doesn´t the 3538i support EAX 4 for Audigy cards like Creatives drivers? I tried setting the 4/5 device but then I couldn´t choose even EAX 2.0?

    I would hate to go back to creative drivers since I need bass redirection however I want of course to make use of EAX 4.0 with my Audigy 2 :)

    Well i own Audigy 2 which certanly has Bass redirection option available in Settings Console.

    But since i have 4.1 speaker system with it's own bass management (the subwoofer is not connected with it's own LFE jack) my option is greyed out.

    It may be greyed out for 5.1 as well. As long as I have had Audigy cards that has never worked well.

    I like the Kx drivers but if EAX HD works with standard drivers I will of course run them. If I can get it working with separate bass input.

    Well as soon as i switched to 5.1 speakers, the Bass redirection inwoked itself.
    Btw i'm using latest Creative beta drivers (the OpenAL beta ones) with all the stuff fully updated (EAX Console and so on). So you might wanna (re)try it again :)

    EAX does NOT work with kx drivers - not EAX 2, not 3 and no EAX4.

    Wow didn´t know that. I tried installing the standard Audigy drivers however it doesn´t exist any for my Audigy 2 value card!!!

    I think I will just go and get an Audigy 4 despite hearing there is hardly any difference in game applications.
