Default How do I use a quad setup of speakers in games?

I just fixed some of these old speakers and I got my 4 channel going but I need to know... what things can you "do" in 4 channel?

I already set the setup in Vista too, just need to know how to use my newly found speakers.

Thanks in advance.

Well 4 channel isn't really anything. It's not true digital surround (5.1 or 7.1).

The only thing you can do is set it in the audio mode to 4 speakers and you will get sound outta the back speakers.

THANK YOU!
And I guess this means its back to the computer recycling place.
So if I could find another speaker that would be 5 Channel not 5.1.
Does this mean I also got to find a sub?

Also can I somehow get the 4 speakers running for music and such?

5.1 means digital surround, Dolby Digital or DTS in most cases you would need a receiver or speakers w. it built in.
