I have the tx-sr605 7.1 receiver. Front and rear speakers are plugged into zone 1 per instructions. The sub according to instructions is
plugged into zone 2. Why is this? Why do I have to have both zones on
to hear the sub - or is this how tx sr605 is suppose to work? Thanks much
There are 2 ports for sub woofer, try using the other sub port.. I dont have to use zone 2, and not sure it even has a zone 2 sub port.... I use zone 2 for a cd player and speakers on the deck.. no sub woofer

have the same model. just got it to work. but, struggling with one part. here's the scoop. 1. Plug your second zone speakers into the SURR BACK/AMP ASSIGN speaker outputs on the unit. 2. You need to "amp assign" the speakers to zone 2 by pressing AMP, MENU, select SPEAKER SETUP, AMP ASSIGN and scroll to ZONE 2 - this will force the sound to the speakers that you plugged in. 3 - Turn on Zone 2 (press Z2, press ON button on remote). Use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the input for Zone 2. I've only been successful in selecting USB and plugging my iphone in for zone 2. For some reason, I cannot get the SAT (cable box) to play in both zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time. But, I can get SAT in zone 1 and USB in zone 2. Hope that helps. Let me know if you can solve my issue...
Disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver for zone 2 then test zone 2 on again. If it stays on, disconnect the wires at the zone 2 speakers, make sure wires are separated then reconnect at the receiver and test again. If it still stays on, Your receiver is good, your wires are good, you need to connect one speaker at a time and test power again. When it shorts, pull the speaker and meter it for a short. If your not sure how to do this, take it to any local audio shop and they will usually test for free.
If you have a volume control on zone 2 speakers independent of the receiver, you need to pull it and check it as well for corrosion or shorts.
If at the first step, your receiver still shuts off, the problem is internal and will need to be serviced. If you need further help on this, post a reply or comment and I can help you further. Hope this does the trick!
I know this is old and im sure you have it solved by now, but it might be a good idea to check the amp setting of Zone 2. Is it switched to Internal or external? I remember something strange about this amp in that when you change from using the rear surrounds and go to use them in Zone 2, it resets the amp setting or something like that. Hope it helps if you still need it.
WHEN YOU SET ZONE 2 ON DID IT ASK YOU TO OUT PUT ZONE 2 ONLY OR MAIN + ZONE 2? IFF SO TRY SWITCHING MAIN ON AND IFF THIS DID NOT WORK MAKE SHURE SPEAKERS ARE SWITCHED ON IN MAIN MENU.
I KNOW THIS IS 2 LATE 4 YOUR NEW YEARS PARTY BUT I JUST FOUND THIS SITE 2DAY.
HOPE THIS HELPED.
I am sure this isn't it, but if all components are connected digitally Zone 2 won't work. It only allows analog connections, so anything attached via HDMI, etc. will not be able to be output to Zone 2.
Hi Trapper John...you sound pretty frustrated so I'm just going to offer a single, and easiest method to achieve your goal.
Purchase a 1/4" (6.3mm) Stereo Jack to Stereo RCA Plug Cable. If you have difficulty finding this cable as I have experienced, you may purchase it from the following website by clicking on the URL below:
Once obtained, plug your Wireless Headphones into the 1/4" Jack, and insert the RCA Plugs into the Zone 2 Output on your Receiver and your dreams will be realized. Instructions and information on Zone 2 may be found on page 82 of your Owners Manual....good luck my friend.
