    Last year i bought "INTEX SUBWOOFER PLUS 2600". It was labeled "Multimedia Computer Speaker 4.1 ". It has two mono inputs.
    Recently i came to know that a 4.1 channel should have 4 mono inputs or 2 stereo inputs. I want to sue intex. Where do i stand technecally.
    Otherewise suggest me some software to enhance my sound experiance.

    wel it doesn't depend on the number of speakers coz more than one speakers couls play the same stream , it depends on the number of input your speaker has . a 4.1 system has two stereo inputs , if yours has one then it is a fake .

    like zeeshan said,spekers don't make a difference when it comes to multi channel sound.i connected a hoard of speakers(9,to be exact) to my old cambridge soundworks sub,but honestly,the only difference it made was that it added a mile of wires to my living room.
    inputs matter

    hmmm,looks like u got a pseudo 4.1 system instead,which only replicates the 2 channels in the 2 extra speakers.

    you could try the consumer court
    but read the box carefully. if it says "emulated" or "upmixed" your may not have a very good chance as the company didnt cheat you.
    But you should definately complaint against the dealer. He has cheated you by not guiding you.

    I dont want to sue dealer, he is fr of mine. Even he is novice , i only ordered him. I want to sue INTEX TECHNOLOGY. The only thing written was " MULTIMEDIA COMPUTER SPEAKER 4.1". So have i any chance to win in consumer court.

    why dont you ask your freind for a replacement or exchange or ask him to send it back to intex? there is a better chance of the matter clearing up this way than thru consumer court.

    idd say you have a 70:30 chance at the cosumer forum.
    70% you dont
    30% you do.

    It is not 4 my cause. I want to teach these mnc which make fool out of us. If u have any ad related to it then it will be better. As soon i get time i will fire them. I mailed them but there was no reply. My next legal step will be to write them.

    its hard to fight it out in court coz it will take time, i guess u sud try an exchange it with ur dealer, do some adjustments in price and get a creative or antec lansing.
