I'm guessing you're on Windows. If so, setting the monitor as the default sound device should make GZDoom use it by default. You can also check the game's sound options (Full options menu -> Sound Options -> Advanced options -> OpenAL options) to make sure you have the default sound device selected.

thank you for your reply, i had a look at my sound settings and found it was set to my speakers on the monitor but then i saw the openAL options portion and had a look which turned out to have the wrong speaker set, changing it and restarting GZDoom fixed it.
