    Can anyone please confirm if it is possible to hear sounds (i.e. cars) behind you, if you have a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system?
    I have 2 x front, 2 x rear, front center, and a subwoofer - this was not bought as a proper 5.1 set, but just a bunch of speakers I cobbled together. In Codemasters F1 2012, I can definitely hear cars behind me in my two rear speakers, but this does not happen in GSC or rFactor. I would love to know if it is possible to get them working in GSC, or if buying a proper surround sound set would make any difference?
    Thanks :)

    Rfactor 1 and GSC are only 2.1 channel.
    Sorry.
    Can you try DDP(Dolby Digital Plus)/DDL(Dolby Digital Live) options on HT or sound programs like Creative SB. This will "fill" all channels.

    Thanks StrongManBR, that does help explain this. I have managed to fill the speakers, by changing some of the effects options, so it is much improved thanks.
