What is the best way to set up my 5 inceling speaker system room size is 18x15 TV is centered on 15 ft wall 10ft ceiling ?

place your subwoofer approx 1m or 3 feet away from your media player, then one speaker below your TV, the other two in either corner in the front and the other two in either corner at the back of the room. try not to mount them too high, approx 3 feet off the ground or the same hight as your head when seated. this will give you the best sound quality. if the speaker is the front or back seem a little far you should be able to set the volume on each of them. if the back is further than the front then set the back speakers louder than the front ones or vis versa.

Speaker set up question

I generally only use 2 tower speakers but the extra 2 could be used for rear or surround speakers. Set up your home theatre like a box. Use 2 towers at the front on either side of the TV. Your surround speakers should be in the middle ground (if your couch is in the center of the room, that means to the left and to the right of your couch). Your rear speakers should be similar to your front speakers, just behind you or a little off to the side. These inputs are clearly labelled on the back which is handy. The only thing you're missing is the center speaker, which goes right under the TV. I recommend getting one because this is the speaker that outputs most of the sound for speaking. The 606 has a really handy mic setup program, which I recommend using (it configures the volume for each speaker based on the distance from your seated position). I hope that helps you out!

Bought new Denon receiver. Hooked up main speakers to speaker A and 3 sets of small speakers (outside, living room and dining room (in wall) to speaker B. I use a splitter for the 3 speakers on B. The...

Speakers have what they call an ohm rating. Your 570 watt receiver is 570 watts at a certain ohm load. I would imagine there might be a level difference between the 3 different speakers on B too. Anyway, if the speaker pairs have all different ohm ratings, or they are not the optimum rating for your 570 watt receiver, you will not get the full wattage rating to the speakers. Hope this helps.

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.

The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

I have a Denon 2308CI. I use the 7.1 suround. I have my sony STR DE995 to use as a second amp for zone two hook up. My goal is to watch a movie in the living room and listen to the radio or any other audio...

the mani surround room should be connected to the front speakers A, Center, sub pre-out and surround.
for the other two rooms connect them to surround/back, go into settings and in power amp assignment assign the surround back speakers to the multi room.
once this is complete with your remote in the zone2 control mode you can play your sources in zone2 and control the volume also, if you have inwall volume controls set the zone2 volume to -10 and use the room controls.
To listen to the same source in both zones you will have to select that source in both zones
