Question about Yamaha RX-V430 Receiver
As this receiver does not have automatic speaker calibration, you need to set the volumes manually. The best is if the left and right speakers are at the same distance from you (then their volumes can be equal). If one speaker is at more distance than the other, the volume must be higher for this speaker.
You can find instruction for volume setting at p. 21 of your receiver manual. There you can also find settings of the speaker mode - that depends on the specific speakers you have. You can define for each of 5 speakers if they are Large/Small/None (on this setting depends where will be the lowest bass tones directed).

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.
When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?
Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.
P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.
