I have Logitech x-540 system. All the speakers connected to the sub using extention rca cables.
One of the speakers connected using a 10m RCA cable. This specific speaker has lower volume than the others, If I connected it without the extention cable its fine.

Could it be that the extention cable is the cause for the lower volume?
How can I solve this problem?

is it a high quality cable? I would say since its a longer cable it has more resistance. more resistance to a speaker=less power output just like when you wire subs. the lower the resistance the more power you get from the amp. You may need a small amplifier to boost the power

+1 for this.

Use high quality cables, preferably with gold connects.

Use the same cable on both rear speakers, even if you don't need it. This will keep the signal balanced.

Adjust the front/rear volume levels to compensate. Most good amplifiers or soundcards will include adjustment for this.
