Re: speakers cut out
Are the speaker leads clean and full? ( not missing a bunch of strands) if so, it sounds like the spot where the speaker connectors tie into the circuit board inside. I would find someone to solder that places where the connectors go into the main circuit board

I lot could depend on how the music source has been connected to the receiver. If you are using a stereo CD player then you may need to check if it is configured to send audio in stereo mode and not mono. The input source selection for the audio is given in page 26 of the manual.
You can go to the setting menu in Receiver and configure the speakers settings according to which ones you have installed.
Also refer page 25 in the manual to over ride speaker configuration if it is not showing correct.
You probably don't have a problem with the speakers. Next time you turn the receiver on, before you put on any music, turn the volume control back and forth several times and see if you don't hear a hissing in the speakers. If so, the volume control needs cleaning inside. You can buy audio contact cleaner from Radio Shack. The best solution is to unplug the stereo unit, remove the top cover to expose the controls. Spray the cleaner into the controls (you might as well do them all while your in the unit). The cleaner is highly volatile and will remove dust and debris but leaves no residue. Once you complete this operation you can replace the top cover and the problem should be resolved. If not, you may need to repeat the procedure. Note; Be patient. It takes time for dust to build up and time to remove it all.
Look on the back of the receiver where the existing speaker wires are connected. There should be some jacks there to connect 2 more speakers. There are 2 wires per speaker, put one in the red and one in the black. Some receivers have a button to turn on/off the extra speakers so make sure it is turned on if you have one.
It could be that every sound has its recording style, some record the sound to just left or right only(mono left or mono right) some has stereo, recorded on left and right. Some have induced additional sound that only surround sound is best at.
Or some base on signal strength, some cut or boost only to the level it is set to appear.
The Yamaha RXZ-11 does not come with any set of speakers. Infact there are no "recommended 11.2ch speaker kits". You are advised to purchase top quality Yamaha speakers. Better yet, build your own 11.2 kit. Its not too hard (internet helps) and its tremendously fun!
thats to stop you blowing your speakers. you can make your volume louder via the equaliser/surround settings, but you will still not be aloud past the number 15 without it cutting out.
its an EU setting thats on most mp3 players too, so that people wont listen to music too loud, "nanny state".
This is really weird. Normally, the subwoofer must be turned off when you turn on B speakers. But, hold on.. I have recently tried to do the same thing as you do, and the result is the same as yours. The problem is that you have to turn off A speakers completely when you activate Bs. If you have an A/B Speakers switch, first push the A to turn them off, after that press "B" to listen to music downstairs. I hope it works.
