Is there some setting/button you need to enable in the Aiwa?

Nope, Not that I know of such button...

possibly those jacks are not amplified then, or are just broken.

Just looked up some old Aiwa owners manuals, although I don't know which one you have, but based on the descriptions, probably one of the T-Bass Models.. Some back to 2001. According to what I read on numerous Aiwa mini shelf systems, the rear surround outputs are in fact powered... The button to turn them on is only located on the remote control. Any chance you have a working remote?

Ohhhhh Crap. I think I threw my remote control to the trash.. the batteries have exploded or melted or something and it didn't work.. Wait, I'll check if it's still there

EDIT: Yes, It's still here Its covered with some white powder and smells very sour though.. I think the batteries Did melt and trashed the whole thing. Nevertheless, What do I need to do to control the surround?

Sadly, the remote is dead. Physically I have it, Replaced the batteries (the old ones were covered with acid) but it doesn't seem to do anything. I'm sure there's a button on the system itself, there must be :\\

P.S. the system is apperently from 1998

VoilÃ*! (sorry for triple-post XD) Once the ECO Mode was turned off (googled it and turns out it saves energy etcetera etcetera), The surround speakers kicked in and I got a nice Quadrophonic sound (using the Radio Tuner) That's great news, and +Rep for you mr.xandypx

Okay, Here it is, done and everything
I dont have much space to position it exactly the way I'd like but hell, this configuration works just fine

*pic attached* What do you guys think?
