I have had trouble with these speakers since installing Ubuntu. I dual-boot Ubuntu with Windows 10. The speakers are, on the Windows boot, managed by the pre-installed Bang and Olufsen audio manager. I was able to find out that the speakers were this specific brand of Conexant because I reinstalled ALSA. I still wasn't able to hear sound from the speakers, and now I can't find anywhere on the computer information on the speakers. If anyone can help me, that would be perfect! I appreciate all replies.

EDIT: After some research, I have stumbled upon a Reddit post, saying that my speakers require a Realtek driver. My PC is an HP Envy, but not that model. Source

Edit2: After even more research within my Windows partition, I do in fact use a Conexant driver. Also, it appears that you would need to be able to run the Bang & Olufsen audio manager to run natively on Linux for the audio system to work.

Edit3: I have done crazy amounts of research and work on this. I have come to the conclusion that what I had done was add a blacklist to one of the ALSA files that blacklisted my card. As of now, when I use the program pavucontrol I can see the card there. Sadly, it shows as "(unplugged)". I am stumped as what to do now. I have tried many solutions and workarounds from other sites, but still have not been able to crack the case. I'll post screenshots of what I see from pavucontrol. Showing Unplugged

Edit5:

I've been trying to fix this for ages, and stumbled upon another peice of info. It might not help, but the audio device is showing itself as: 00:1f.3 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-H HD Audio [8086:a170] (rev 31). Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have completely reinstalled Ubuntu 16.10 and my probelem has still not been resolved. When reinstalling, I wiped my Windows partition, so information from there is no longer accessible. Also, if relevant, I have been using a USB speaker adapter for listening to audio. I also use a second monitor with my PC, using a HDMI to VGA adapter, with the HDMI part attaching to the primary monitor. The secondary monitor has no speakers on it. The model of that monitor is a Dell E196FP.
