Re: L or R Channel cuttint out
You have a shorted speaker, crossed speaker wires Or a blown speaker. The amp is reacting to the short.
Start with one speaker by itself, unplug the rest. Check the polarity. Run it on the channel that cuts out. can you replicate it? Check the connections on the amp, and see if they are really close to touching.
Absolutely if it happens on both amps, unless you bought both B stock or Remanufacturerd and they have the same problem. This is rare
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

How you power off the amp won't hurt it generally. I used to fix ONKYO amps under warranty, and I can tell you now, it will be full of dry solder joints. Take you unit to your local repairer, and they will resolder all the offending PCB's inside. This type of repair will fix 99% of strange audio noises and cutting in and out etc. for ONKYO recievers. Otherwise this is quite a good product.
140 watts minimum continuous power per channel, 8 ohm loads, 2 channels driven from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.05% (FTC) 170 watts minimum continuous power per channel, 8 ohm loads, 2 channels driven at 1 kHz, with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.7% (FTC) 180 watts minimum continuous power per channel, 6 ohm loads, 2 channels driven at 1 kHz, with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.1% (FTC)
I see now how it could have happened to both amps. Yes, this triple speaker combo will cause this problem.
Next time if you want to run speakers like that, instead of parallelling them, series them. That way the load is balanced between the speakers.
Here is a great primer, dont worry about the calculations and mumbo jumbo, the pictures should tell you what you need to know to get it done.
also when you talk about bridge, that is usually done on the amp rather than the speaker. For example I could have a 4 channel amp, and bridge it to 2 by combining the channels, BEWARE not just parrallell again, there will be a specific order for each different amp and it will be marked. You can also bridge a two channel amp to make one Single channel amp with almost double the power, but again only to one channel, now that its bridged.
Hope that helps once again. I'm going to look up that amp, if you want more specifics.
You could do a couple things if your head unit has all three outputs, then take them and hook them into the inputs. If you have just the front and the rear outputs, hook those to the inputs front and rear. Then hook the output of the 4 channel to the input of the mono block. I hope this helped -Andrew Hawkins
