My kenwood receiver has
If you are referring to the rear speakers, it is normal. The rear speakers are not supposed to get a signal as loud as the fronts or center.
A surround sound system was originally developed for playing movies and the rear channels are for effects. In most surround modes the center channel will always be the loudest with the widest range of audio signals.
I have been repairing these type of systems since they have been on the market, so I know a lot about them.
This Kenwood you have is like most surround systems and does not have a feature that you would obviously like to have, 5 channel stereo. Only a few surround systems have this feature and they cost much more than the Kenwood systems. Denon and Marantz both make one with that feature. In 5 channel stereo you get a full signal to all the speakers. All the other surround modes you get a much lower signal to the rear speakers.
So in closing, you do not need it fixed, there is nothing wrong with it. You have a common complaint that many people have who buy a surround sound system but are not fully understanding of just what a surround systems is supposed to be capable of
. This is something that the salesman who sold it to you should have explained to you, that way you could have purchased a system that would have better suited your needs.
I would be happy to give you more help if you would like, just let me know. As I already stated, I have many years of experience with surround sounds systems, in fact I own the exact Kenwood model that you have and I like it very much. It is about the best you can get for that price.
