No Bass in Surround On PC

Hello, this is my first time using surround sound basically, and with a PC. Please bear with me if I left out some info.

My motherboard is capable of up to 7.1 surround sound. Currently I am trying to use it for 5.1. I have a 5.1 speaker set.
Using Windows 10 Home

Speakers: BeFree Sound 125 Watt 5.1 Surround System
Motherboard: MSI B450M Mortar - MATX

So the speakers are set to 5.1, and I have it configured that way in the sound control panel in Windows.
In configure, all speakers appear to be working properly.

When playing back sound, the sound is crap, tinny and no bass. It appears only the front left and right are being utilized.
I have to switch to stereo 2.1 to get any bass.

Is this because my speakers are sub par? I'm not understanding what the issue is.

Set the speakers as not full range in setup.
