Description Rik van der Kemp 2022-05-27 00:45:22 UTC
The subwoofer isn't enabled out-of-the-box. It seems like this is a similar issue as previous dell models.

I've looked at a possible patch and tried (to no avail) to create a patch and test it out locally. Never build the kernel before.

But I've looked at previous entries, used lspci -vmnn to discover the right Svendor and SDevice.

So I believe this will fix the issue in sound/pci/hda/patch_realtek.c

SND_PCI_QUIRK(0x1028, 0x0b19, "Dell XPS 15 9520", ALC289_FIXUP_DUAL_SPK)

Happy to test out any builds etc.

Patch to fix sound quirk

I have successfully compiled the kernel (version 5.17.11) and confirmed the sound working properly.

Hello, is there any chance of getting this backported to the 5.15.x series? 

5.17.x has just been made EOL and 5.18.x is probably a little too bleeding edge for the most. For example, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS will be coming out with 5.15.x.
