I want to run remote speakers from this unit to my bathroom.
I see where there are remote speaker connections in the rear of the unit. I have connected the speakers, then I tried to press the remote button on the front and the remote control. However, nothing came out of the speakers. What should I have done or yet still do?

Not familiar with the model. Remote speakers are just added speaker option if "main" speakers are not used.
Main (livingroom speakers) or Remote (bedroom) or both can be used via switch. Just observe impedance your unit may allow.
The Speaker A and Speaker B buttons select pairs of speakers. If you have connected a pair of speakers to the "SPEAKER A" terminals on the rear of your Onkyo receiver, you will hear stereo sound when the Speaker A button is pressed on the front panel. If, for some reason, you wanted to connect a second set of speakers in the same room or perhaps another room you would connect those speakers to the "SPEAKER B" terminals on the rear. Pressing both buttons on the front panel would send sound output to both sets of speakers
On the front display of the unit, you should have indicator icons that light up if a speaker is being used. Are there only 3 speakers lite up, or are there 5? As a quick check, make sure your speaker connections are secure, and then make sure your surround mode is set to a 5 channel surround mode. 5 channel Stereo is a good one to test with. Also, you can hit the "test" button to see if the speakers are connected and working, it will give a test signal out of each speaker independently. Let me know what you find, and I can answer more.
Swap your left and right rear speaker over. If you still get no sound from the right speaker connected to the left speaker connection on the receiver, then you have a fault on the receiver output. Check your manual first to see if any setting switch off the rear speaker before taking the unit for repair or replace
The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs
Swap the rear right speaker to rear left make sure the speakers and speakers wire are OK
Initializer the unit as follow set the unit in STBY mode if you are not sure which mode turn off the unit with the remote control now the unit is in STBY mode. Pressing STRAIGHT and AUDIO SELECT keys simultaneously then press power STBY button on front panel the display will show 1: Analog ByPass use the PROGRAM knob to move up to 13 PRESET INHI then press 1 or 2 keys to change to PRESET RSRV then turn off power now unit reset to factory just turn on and try it
Let me know how do you go
PS: this model have an update firmware if your is still under warranty bring it back to Yamaha or 1 of the service center Yamaha they are able to update for you. Due to confidence I can not post that firmware sorry for that inconvenience
You will need a line level adaptor to get an audio input for the amp.
A line level adaptor is a device that lets you tap off of your speaker outputs of the radio and it converts that signal into the proper level for an RCA input signal the amplifier uses.
If you are installing the amp in the trunk of the car you can just tap off the speaker outputs of the rear speakers mounted in the trunk. Keep the speaker outputs connected to the speakers, just run an extra set of wires from them to the line level adaptor. It will not take anything away from the speakers sound because it is not a power drain on them.
After that, you just connect the power wires for the amp as you would normally and you also need to run an extra wire from the radio power antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amp, or you can use a wire directly from the battery and connect it thru a switch you would need to connect somewhere around the dash, so you can turn the amp on and off when you need to. The power antenna wire from the radio is best, so you don't need to turn the amp on and off manually. It is easy to forget about turning it off sometimes and that would run doen your battery if the amp is left on over night even with no signal going thru it.
Then connect your speakers to the amp and thats it.
Then big issue is getting an audio signal to the amp and the turn on signal for the amp.
