Go to Documents > Battlefield 3 > settings > open PROF_SAVE_profile with wordpad
Look for: GstAudio.StereoMode 1 and set it to GstAudio.StereoMode 0
You might also want to try to change GstAudio.YourSoundSystem and GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 20
not sure what those last 2 do.
But switching stereomode to 0 gave me back positional 3d sound.

i agree setting Stereo mode off "GstAudio.StereoMode 0" does improve the sound but still not a true 5.1.

not sure what ,"GstAudio.YourSoundSystem and GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 20", actually does but will try next time i'm playing.

@Gen & Rusty

the perfect settings for BFBC2 5.1 surround with BF3 is

GstAudio.StereoMode 0
GstAudio.SoundSystemSize 51

with stereo mode on throwing a grenade the explosion comes threw all speakers as well as grenade bounce with it off throw, turn around quick, hear bounce in rear speakers and explosion.

ALSO WORKS WITH 7.1

i don't doubt all 7+sub speakers sound great but sorry for the scepticism. in bfbc2 there were claims of true 5.1 surround sound.
when tested i found only 4.1 working! the centre speaker missing.

my question is this, did you turn off all speakers except 1 and work through all 8 channels testing each one in turn i.e through grenade then spin on the spot checking for sound ?

this game does not support 7.1(side speakers not working but do with upmix but thats cheating) only 5.1, and it is true 5.1. I am doing a video for you gen on my phone

nice video ! Cool

ok from the video there was positive sound (without any 3rd party upmix enabled) through front left and right , rear left and right plus a subwoofer.

thus 4.1 surround sound. i don't think we can count the centre speaker as only voice commands were heard!
