Sound only out of 4 speakers

I am having a problem with sound from all speakers. I set up everything correctly but I do not get sound out of the front 2 speakers and the front center channel. I do the auto setup and do not hear sound out of those same 3 speakers. PLEASE HELP, I don't know what to do.

Re: Sound only out of 4 speakers

If I understand it correctly, you are telling me that even if you used the surround speakers there is still no sound coming out then it might be a faulty receiver and it needs to be taken back. Sorry but I can't, in good faith, tell you to open up your receiver and try and fix it.

Hello there,

It sounds like everything is working correctly to me. Voices / spoken dialogue should mostly be from the front speakers and surround audio (music, effects, etc) from all speakers.

The TV screen is in front of you so the people on the TV screen are also (technically) in front of you. Naturally, I would expect the spoken dialogue to come from the front speakers only - except in some instances, where dialogue in the movie is from a character not currently on screen. If you had voices from both in front of and behind you when the characters are only in front of you, it would be totally disorientating.

If you have audio from all five speakers during a movie then all of your connections and settings are correct. The problem you are describing is really just a description of how surround sound works.

I hope this helps. If I misunderstood the question or the problem, please let me know.

Fornt speakers does not have any sound.

remove the front speakers cables from the rear-remove surround speaker cables from the rear and put them in the place of front speaker-run a music if you get good sound the problem in your front speakers(speaker or its cable)-if you got nothing you will have a problem in your system itself and need to fix in service center.
