Re: onkyo sr606 unable to select speaker setup in the...
Sometimes, the memory of the receiver will act abnormally.. what you need to do is return the unit back to factory settings. To do that, press and hold vcr/dvr button and while holding it, press the standby/on button. You will see the word clear. It would reactivate your settings. ^_^

You will need to go through the speaker setup menu and select the configuration and crossover frequency for the speakers. If you set to full range, your sub will not be engaged. Subs are only good at low frequencies, so use the lowest frequency for the crossover. (40-80Hz) If you have the audyssey microphone plug it and follow the directions to re-balance the equalization for the room and seating positions. If you don't use Audyssey, you'll need to tune all of the config setting manually. Some may be re-used if the distance is the same, but the loudness (+/- DB settings) and cross overs are probably going to be different for the new Klipsch speakers.
Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.
restore the receivers to factory settings by pressing and holding the dvr/vcr button then press the stand by button. this would erase all assignments made so you would need to redo the assignments of your sources to the receiver, then activate zone 2 by going in to the hardware setup(7.2)
I ran into the same issue and was stumped at first. Then I noticed somehow I had changed the sound processing to "Direct" which meant the signal coming from the source was bypassing all of the control in the receiver. All I had to do is select another option (press stereo for example on the remote) and kick it out of the direct mode.
if the speaker settings are deactivated, there is no other way but to reset the receiver back to factory settings. press and hold down vcr/dvr and then press standby. you will the word reset and that should activate your speaker set up again. hope this helps. ^_^
when you feel that the center channel is low compared to the other speakers, you can go to set up, speaker set up and then level calibration. here, you can actually adjust the volume output per speaker up to +12. So in your case, try to increase the db of the center speaker and see if that will help you hear it better. Hope this helps.
Powering off usually points to issues with speaker setup. You should read pages 42 and 96 of the 606 manual.
Page 42 covers impedence settings. Check your impedence settings for your speakers. The 606 handles speakers from 4 to 16 ohms. There are two impedence settings on the 606 - 4 ohms and 6 ohms. Set to 4 ohms if your speakers are 4 ohms or more but less than 6 ohms. Set to 6 ohms if your speakers sit between 6 and 16 ohms. Incorrect settings can result in the 606 going into power protection after prolonged use or at higher volume.
Page 96 covers testing for unexpected power protection. You should switch off your AV at source and leave for an hour. Disconnect all cables to speakers and other peripherals (TV, DVD et al). After an hour turn on AV and turn volume to MAX, If the AV remains on, turn down volume to min, switch off AV and reconnect all devices. Make sure the speaker cables are properly connected and that no bare wiring is exposed.
Once you have done this switch on the AV and turn to volume to MAX. If the AV stays on then problem solved. If the AV switches off then you should contact your supplier.
