JBL Creature 2.1 Left Speaker not working

\015 Basically I have just bought JBL creature 2.1 speakers and the subwoofer is fine, and so is the right speaker but the left speaker is not working? The light doesn't come on the left speaker but it does on the right and when I test the sound the left and right speaker sound both come out of the right.I went back to the Apple Store and I got new ones and the same problem has happened. I even connected it to my friends laptop and it's still not working (the same problem, just subwoofer and right speaker working and playing)Anyone who can help?\015

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...

I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).

This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.

Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)

I've tried three different sets of speakers and each time the left speaker will not work. I've also tried plugging in my headphones and my left headphone wont work.
