Is there I way I can have the rear speakers(where I have 2.1speakers) and front (where i attach my headset) working simultaneously?

I tried connecting the headset to one of the rear jacks as front speakers but it didn't work.

The speakers have a jack for headset (Arctic Sound 2.1 s362) but when I connected it there .. bass kept coming out of the Subwoofer and from the headset only treble came out.

I am assuming that there is some possible software options which I don't know of.

It depends, but basically you can do that. What is your operating system? What are you doing to configure your audio output?

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and am using an onboard soundcard. I have the Realtek HD Audio Manager software installed. I don't understand why the rear is muted, and it is really boring having to connect and disconnect the cable from the jack each time.

If you right-click on the sound icon in your docking bar, and select "adjust audio properties", then you should be able to go to the "Audio->Speakers" tab and setup the speakers as you prefer. At least this is what you do with XP (I don't have Win7), although I expect Win7 has similar controls. If that doesn't work for you, I expect to get a Win7 system later this week for my new job, so I should be able to determine if there are changes to what you do to get the other speaker port to work properly.

i am also very interested in how to do this,

i have thought about installing one of the extra PCI sound cards i have, but it just seems like it would be a waste of time...

is it a waste of time?

You would probably have to disable one of the cards. I use the HD card that came with my Intel motherboard, and I can switch between front and back, or bluetooth device, as necessary, at least in my Linux system!

i use windows7 and i have found what i was looking for(sort of)
control panel->hardware and sound->sound->playback tab
select a playback device and click properties
select custom tab
there are 2 checkboxes:
'switch line-in to rear output' and
'switch mic-in to center/LFE output'
