Problem with speaker wires making contact in back of reciever on
I have Technics reciever i purchased around 10 years ago, I also purchased the bose surround speakers at same time. The Bose speaker wires are round and the Technics has a clip style wire holder in back. My Surround speakers will only work if i push them farther into the clip holders and than they will work for like a day than they quit till i do it again. Sometimes if i just leave it on for a few hours it will come and go. I have tried cutting the speaker wires back to see if there is a break in it and it still does the same thing. it does it sometimes on the left front speaker but not as bad. I have to push the surround wires straight in hard and it will make contact.

Open up the receiver and check for poor solder connections @ the spkr junctions.
If you can solder, then solder a pin that is THICKER than the wire to it, the Bose wire is fairly thin and the spring clips don't clamp to heavily to thin stuff.
When you push the surrounds in you bottom them out in the connector. Having a thicker wire will eliminate the problem, use a piece of 12ga solid wire from house wiring. Make as many as you need and shrink tube all connections after soldering. Use White for + and Black for -.

either your connectors need cleaning or maybe a break in the wiring. Is there on spot where both wires come together if so check there.If there is any plugs, pull them apart and clean them with contact cleaner
If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.
I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.
Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.
Carefully unsnap the speaker cover you may want to use a jewelers screwdriver or a small flat tip to assist with getting it off. Once its off unscrew the 4 screws completely and then carefully wiggle the speaker from he cube. Once the speaker is out of the way reach in the cube and reset the plastic coupling so its flush with the inside top of the cube. With both cubes on there sides and the rubber washer and swivel ring in place press the bottom cube, with your finger(s) inside the cube on the plastic couping, up into th top cube until you here or feel it snap into place. Once it snaps into place, adjust the insulation in the speaker then wiggle the speaker back into the cube and carefully put the screws back in. Once this is accomplished snap the speaker coverback on and that's it. It takes ten minutes once you get the speaker cover off.
