I know you can get the AX510 for the 2408wfp, but how about the older AS501, is it compatible with the 2408wfp?(Forums)
I am most certain... I have a dell flat 24" with an identical sound bar. It mounts the same but the power jack is in a different location on the 20" ultra sharp.
I bought one 'back when' I had a 1907FPt Monitor sent, and that AS501 has a Sub Out. It's an RCA jack, so I don't know if it's 8 ohms (for direct connect) or a 'line output' level, which...

I just purcased a AS501 Sound bar and when mounted to my Dell 20" Ultrasharp, the power cord is about 2" inches too short to reach the monitors power outlet. :-(( Anybody got any ideas? Martin7/5/2006 | (Forums)
I just listened to mine and its the same way.Â Not much, and I have to put my ear next to the sound bar.Â Of course it depends on what music I'm listening to whether its more noticeable or not
My Windows volume is not set to max (just halfway but the sound is noticeable when speaker volume is down. Â Yes, I don't hear anything if Windows volume is down.
I have the integrated audio chip on my motherboard, no sound card and windows is set to max which lets me hear it a little only, but noticeable. Turning the windows audio down, and no more music heard. Is that the same with you now ?
Base on everything, it appears to be normal for the speakers, and the sound adjustments in windows.Â Â :smileywink:

There is no subwoofer in A00 revision, it's in A01. I've just seen both of them at the local Dell distributor.
Are you sure the soundbar is plugged into the correct slots on the monitor? If so, there's nothing else to do but call Dell and see what they say.
I will also try another speaker and see if it behaves the same way. I'll report back.
There is an On Screen Display setting for Audio, that lets you set this. httpsupport.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/1707FP/en/setup.htm#Using%20the%20OSD You can select to have the audio on or off when the monitor is in power saving mode. Yes — enables audio No — disables audio (default)
I think faster than I can type. It was suppose to be. "The Dell Gold line tech's couldn't help me with my problem for over a month now." Don't be surprised if you see a question from me on the forum again. I haven't had much help from the Gold line tech's.
Hard to believe, once I had the model number it took me 60 seconds to find the answer.
Thank you so much for the help. I tried it and it worked. This was a simple answer to a question "The Dell Gold line tech's couldn't help me with for over a month now." They had me unpluging things and twinking my computer power settings.
Maybe you're not hearing much as the Windows volume control is also on low level? Try increasing the Windows control and see if the audio coming out of the speaker is louder now (after turning the speaker volume control to the lowest possible level).
