Windows 7: Individual speakers for left and right audio (2.1 setup)

Individual speakers for left and right audio (2.1 setup)

I am currently running a triple monitor setup with a widescreen and two 4:3 monitors on either side. each 4:3 monitor has a sound bar attached to it. A sub-woofer is also connected. (Though I don't believe it matters in this case) My motherboard (EVGA SR-2) supports 7.1 surround supposedly through a Realtek ALC889. What I want to do is have one sound bar play only left front audio and the other to play only right front audio, essential making each sound bar an individual speaker. (Meaning each uses a separate jack) I haven't even figured out how to change from stereo to mono sound yet because the feature appears to be removed from Windows 7. (Even though it existed in XP) And I've also only ever been able to select one audio output even though I need 3. So, the main question is, how would I go about enabling both speakers at once, and making them each play mono (R/L) sound?

The audio out, GREEN jack is a stereo jack. You can buy a "splitter" cable that will route the "Tip" connection to one jack and the other the "Ring" connection to another jack. Thus you can then connect the "left" soundbar speaker to one jack (I think the Tip) and the "right" soundbar speaker to the other jack. This would give you "stereo" with the two soundbars.

Alright, I've been looking for splitters, but only found ones that were meant for dual headphones or what not. (Meaning the sound stays stereo after the split) Now that I know the official terms though (Tip/Ring) I think I was able to find the right kind of splitter. I'll have to try it out and see how it works. Thank you.

There's this annoying white noise on my left speakers(Logitech X-540 Speakerset), though I think it's not my speakers that are causing it, but something else, because when I connect my iPod to my speakers there's no white noise. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of this...
