Hello,
I have two pairs of stereo speakers and I also have a 5.1 audio motherboard.
Both pairs of stereo speaker have stereo 3.5mm jack. How can I connect these when I want one pair to be Left and Right Main and second pair L&R Surround?
Thank you. Looking forward for answer.

Refer to the Rear Panel Connections section of your motherboard user's manual. Connect one pair of speakers to the line out audio port (usually green); connect the second pair to the rear out port (usually black). Note these are both line level outputs and will only work with self amplified speakers.

The only problem you may encounter is the audio setup. To get true surround audio, you will need to configure as "5.1". Obviously, you don't have 5.1 (you are missing the center and sub). In a 5.1 setup, the front left/right and rear left/right are surround channels. The center speaker contains everything seen on screen. So depending on the source of the audio, you could be missing important audio. Just something to keep in mind when you are gaming or watching a movie and everything center stage is hard to hear/understand.
