Question about Sony STR-DE695 Digital Audio/Video Control Center
There is good sound output from all the other channels (center, sub, surround) but the Front L/R are much lower (softer). I've done all the normal Set-up and Levels adjustments per the manual instructions. I've tried swapping the speakers, the speaker wires, and the Video unit sending a signal. I've tried resetting the system. I've tried using the 2-channel setting to by-pass the Surround decoding. I've tried using headphones (and the sound was very low). It doesn't matter what I've tried, the Front Speakers are always much softer than the other speakers. What is the problem?

There might be a levels adjustment in the setup menu for distance or something, might check that before opening unit up.

try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

This is a common problem that a lot of people have with this system. The problem is in the connection of the Left and Right Speakers to the receiver. I had this problem too.
What you need to do is actually open up the receiver using a screwdriver. Once it is opened up you will see a circuit board and lots of wires. Look for the red and blue wire that should be pretty easily visible. Cut each one, then strip the ends some, and reattach the ends but to the opposite color- make sure to solder it as well. On some models they messed up the connections and it got switched. Once you do this, the left and right speakers should work great. Hope this helped!!

First off, you want to correctly isolate what or which channels are/is bad. Use one good known speaker. Connect that speaker, one channel at a time, and test that channel with a fixed volume level (don't adjust the volume when you check each channel). Isolate the low level channels and make note of it. Note: each channel has their own amplifier. Once you've isolated the bad channels, take it to a repair shop and tell them the bad channels. They will then locate the circuit and narrow down the search to fine the problem - it's usually a bad solder connection. If it blows fuses - more likely a shorted transistor. In your case it's a bad solder connection.
