Connecting multiple sound outputs through PC

Ok so i've got my 2.1 speakers running through the 3.5mm audio jack in the back of my PC. To improve the sound I have also been given a soundbar.

I can get sound through both the speakers and the soundbar by using a 3.5mm splitter but there is a noticable delay. I've tried running it through the stereo mix option but this didn't help. I've also tried virtual audio cable but couldn't figure it all out and I've tried voicemeeter and im still getting a horrible delay.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 10
Standard Realtek sound card built into mobo
realtek drivers are up to date
Since your PC is sending the same audio to both the speakers and soundbar no adjustments in the PC will help. If the soundbar has any audio processing that you can turn off that might help.
It's usually not an improvement to use different speakers at the same time. You will probably get a better result using the one you like best. If your mobo has a subwoofer output you could use the sub with the soundbar.
