Creative Sound card

I've got a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio. I have 2/2.1 speakers. What jack in the back of the card should I be in? When I run creative diagnostics I hear the left and right speaker but not my center speaker. With the 2/2.1 speakers do you stay in the green jack?

Perhaps im mistaken, but i didnt think 2.1 had a center channel.

I Thought 2.1 means << Left -- Right -->Sub >>
Which should just connect to the green output on the card & the speakers have the Sub crossover built in.

The speaker leads should be color coded, and if you applied the decal that came with the sound card, the ports on it are also. Match the colors.

Sorry for the delay in responding. The tip is colored green so I put it in the green jack. Thank You to everyone for your responses.
