THX Spatial Audio is an audio enhancement and tuning utility available as a premium purchase for all Windows devices. However, Audio Enhancer can run into problems and stop working, leaving you with no sound.
If you do not experience any sound from THX Spatial Audio, this may be due to an incorrectly configured default playback device or incompatibility. Here are some troubleshooting steps to help you fix this problem and get THX Spatial audio working again.
1. Run Windows Audio Troubleshooter
The Windows Audio Troubleshooter can find and fix common audio problems with system sound and audio devices. For example, this should be one of your first ports of call if you’re looking to fix no audio on Windows 11.
The troubleshooter will scan the system for problems and then recommend fixes accordingly.
The troubleshooter will first check for problems with audio services. Next, you will be asked to select a bad device. Select THX Spatial Audio Device and click Next.
2. Check Your Sound Output Device
You can set your preferred sound output device in the THX spatial audio interface. Since THX Spatial Audio sends audio to your audio device through its interface, you’ll need to set it as the default audio output device on your PC.
That’s it. Next, click on the Test THX Spatial Audio option to see if the sound is working or not. That said, if the problem is limited to a specific game title, check whether your game is supported by THX Spatial Audio. You can search the list of games for compatible titles.
3. Set your default audio device to Sound
