why the front speakers/channels have no output

I am having problems taking full advantage of my system's audio
capabilities. I have a system with the following configurations,
hardware, and software settings:

System:
Pentium 4 (3GHz, 1GB RAM)
Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2

Sound Card:
SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS [A400]
Driver release: release 2.9.16 (re-installed to ensure that it is not
corrupt)

Speakers:
Logitech Z-5300 Speakers
Source selector switch: 5.1
Matrix: on

Audio Software:
Creative Audio Console:
Speakers: 5.1 Speakers (synchronized with MS Windows Control Panel)

Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices
Speaker Settings: Speaker Setup: 5.1 surround sound speakers

When listening to music - .mp3 or .wav (off a CD) - or a DVD, or
playing material via iTunes (music and video), the front speakers/
channels (left and right) not producing any sound. Center speaker/
channel is playing about 80 percent of non-sub-woofer audio (operating
normally), with the rear speakers/channels (both left and right)
producing the other 20 percent.

I'm trying to determine why the front speakers/channels have no
output.

All the wires/plugs are connected properly. All the hardware
configurations and software settings appear to be correct. I've
reinstalled the sound card driver and audio software (WinAmp). I just
cannot figure out why there is no front speaker/channel sound.

Can anyone help me?

Just to make sure they are connected properly see:

On some Creative Audio connections the plug colors are not connected to the same
color jack. On one system where I use Creative speakers the Green plug goes in the
Black jack and the Black plug in the Green jack. If connecting the plug color to the
corresponding jack color the audio output is very faint.
