Z506 rear speaker problems

Just got my speakers in today and noticed the rear speakers sound fuzzy and are extremly quiet. I have set up the speakers to be 5.1 surround and when I do the test only the front right and left speakers make the test tone. However, when a song is played in iTunes the FL, FR, center, and sub all work fine but the BL and BR are still fuzzy. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I am using the sound card built in on my nvidia 780i motherboard. The speakers are connected with the green AUX cable. Any other information you need I would be glad to answer.

Realized I didn't have all cords plugged in. I now can hear all the test sounds but the rear speakers sound worse in iTunes now. The are quieter and the static muffle they put out can hardly be considered sound.

Another update: works fine in WMP but not iTunes (tested exact same song file). I might be switching my library over. This just further confimrs to me that iTunes is one of the worst media softwares out there.
