Having problems with your Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers ?

I have just bought the logitech x-540 speakers and have found that they have 3 input cables (one for each of the left, right and centre speakers). However my laptop only has 2 input 'holes'. The headphone one and one next to it (mic one maybe) I can connect two of the cables and seem to get sound out of all speakers if I use matrix mode but i'm not sure if this is the true sound I should be getting? Is there a way to connect all 3 cables to my laptop?


Answers :

Hope you come right bud
happy new year :)
