I have misplaced the manual for my receiver. I need to know how to balance my speakers. I can only do it at the receiver itself.
You haven't told me what make nor model of receiver you have. That would help A LOT. Anyway, most systems have a power amplifier and a pre-amplifier. Receivers have both, but they are in the same box and to the average user are in-distinguishable. The amplifier it's self (for all practical purposes) has no "balance" control. Any gain adjustments including balance, are done at the pre-amplifier level, and in the case of a receiver, that's probably the only place you will have to do any balancing. Beyond that, you may have an L-PAD or some kind of volume adjustment at the back of your speaker cabinets. If that is the case, you could do some additional balancing there, but if you're looking for symetry in your sound, there should be no need for balance adjustment. If you find that one of the channels is noticably quieter than the other, and yet your balance adjustment is set to the middle, then we need to investigate to find out why, but I don't think that is the problem that you are describing. If you already know how to set the balance at the receiver, then you probably know just about all there is to know about setting the balance on that system. Again, I am not familiar with the system, as you have not given me the make nor model.
