Hiya,

Make sure back speaker's power amplifier is set to the correct channel

Check the surround back speaker setting is set to something other than "NONE"

Check that the surround sound playback mode is set to either 6.1 or 7.1

Hope that helps

Mike

On this reciever you have rear surround and rear back spkrs, if your using the surr back they have to be assigned if unassigned in the settings. If using rear surr spkrs change your surr field to 5ch stereo and your rear speakers will work.
There is no 7.5 unless you have 5 subs the 7 is the total number of speakers and the .1 is the number of subs in the system

I have a Yamaha RX - V665 and the right rear surround works only part of the time.


Start by using an old test speaker and connect it directly to the right surround output with a short wire and monitor it.

If it sems to work with no issues, you either have a bad connection at receiver or speaker, or a break in the speaker wire somewhere.

If you have the same problem with the test speaker, you have a rgt. rear output issue in the receiver and it needs repair.

Hope this helps

Speaker Detect error Left Rear


Hey there.

I had the same problem until i figured out that if u dont have surround speakers connected it will be a error when trying to configure the rear surround speakers.

So if u are running a 5.1 system and have hooked up ur surround speakers to the back surround speaker port u have to change them to the surround speaker port.

Hope this work for u

Speaker is not detected


If you are connecting a 5.1 surrround sound rather than 7.1, have you connected the surround speakers to the surround left and surround right rather than surround back left and surround back right?

I have a set of RM300 Polk sub-sattelite speakers. Have had them for some time and still love em but.... The foam surrrounds on the bigger sattelites have disintegrated. Polk says too old cant fix. ...


Yes they can be re-surrounded. It is not that hard, it just taes some practice. How big are the speakers? Look for a local speaker repair shop. They are few, but still exist. The hardest part is finding the correct surround. As long as the remainder of the speaker is in good shape, you will find these to be good as new once done. FIrgure about 2-3 days to complete the job properly.
