That actually depends. your laptop or PC has no way to identify what speakers or headphone is connected unless you install some proprietary software that can either automatically detect them or let you choose (much like Dell WaveMaxx Audio).

 

But I think there's actually an issue that your laptop has not enough power to power up your subwoofer, judging that most people will not plug in a subwoofer to their laptop. Anyway, here's something you can try:

Go to sound control panel. At the playback tab, click properties and see what you can adjust. If there's enhancement options, you can try and adjust them.

I have ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). More info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autism_spectrum

 

I apologies if my comments or post offends you in any way, or if my rage got a little too far. I'll try my best to make my post as non-offensive as much as possible.

What you can try is to install Linux as dual boot with windows. With the help of the pavucontrol app you can immediately configure these kinds of settings correctly.

 

The best Linux distro currently is Void Linux. For beginners, Void can be too difficult and in that case I would recommend Mint, Fedora, EndeavourOS, MX Linux, AlmaLinux (the DVD iso and install Flatpak) and KDE neon.
