Ubuntu – No sound from external subwoofer “Sonic Master” on an Asus N76VM


A few weeks ago I bought an Asus n76vm notebook looking forward to it's 'superior sound'. This sound system compromises an external subwoofer which amplifies bass and is connected to a special output jack. Ubuntu 12.04, however, does not detect this subwoofer. How could this be solved?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated


Best Answer

to get the subwoofer I added on the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf this line:

options snd-hda-intel model=asus-mode4

then rebooted and selected 2.1 output in audio pref. It should work right away :) got this information from Keyboard backlight not working on an Asus N56V

hope it helped!
