Okay but I'm guessing that what you're hearing is not actually "surround sound" - but rather 2x stereo - front left and right replicated on the rear speakers and low frequencies automatically directed to the sub.

It's possible that the amp does that automatically when using only the stereo input jack.

/Edit

I looked at the quickstart guide pdf for your speaker set and it looks like I was right, the only way to get true 5.1 surround sound is to use all three cables that came with the speakers, connected respectively to the front, rear and sub outputs on your sound card. If you want to hear a helicopter fly around your chair this is the only way.
