That sounds like great idea however without the ability to test and determine that it is actually wrong with them I would put up a big red flag that says stop. With out the proper knowledge, equipment and skills you have a very high percentage of destroying the amplifier. Do you know what configuration the output transistors are in and how to bias them? I do not have the circuit diagram but the outputs operate in Class D, that tells me it most like has MOSFETs instead of transistors in the output circuit.
This is on the first page in the book: CAUTION: Risk of electrical shock - DO NOT OPEN!
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover. No user serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
If you are using channels 1-8 be sure the mute button is not pressed. It is to the left of the effects selector. Is the LED illuminated for the DDT Speaker Protection system, if so that is shutting down the outputs.
The Peavey XR8600 is NOT just an amp, but a powered mixer.
To SAFELY use this with your powered speakers, connect those speakers to the MAIN and MONITOR outputs on the front of the unit with 1/4 inch INSTRUMENT rated cables (NOT speaker cables).
To safely leave the power amps in the XR8600 with no output loads, plug GROUNDING plugs into the POWER AMP 1 and 2 input jacks on the front. This will prevent the power amps in the XR8600 from running with no load which COULD damage them.
Make the grounding plugs from 1/4 inch mono plugs by jumpering the centr aand sleeve terminals of the plug.
Why don't you try using the main outputs (the 2 XLR connectors). With 2 cables connect these two (left - right) outputs at your amplifier's aux in. In that case take care that the "output level" of the mixer works like master volume controlfor the signal that the mixer sends to the amplifier.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

You should be able to online to the manufacturer of your products and download manuals. However, I will try to help.
Connect the sound output cables from your DVD player including, left/right(white/red) as well as the Coax output/input if your DVD and your Carver each have this feature for enhanced sound on certain DVDs, and connect to the matching DVD inputs on your Carver.
Then, connect your DVD video output either by use of your RGB(RED/GREEN/BLUE cables or an S Video cable to your the matching video inputs on your t.v.
On the back of your Carver, you will find outputs for left and right speakers, connect to the left and right speakers with proper wire. Make sure that the 2 conductor wire is connected with the same side(polarity) on all speakers for the best sound quality.
You will also find rear channel left and right outputs on your amp, connect those to your rear right and left speakers.
Connect the center channel speaker to the center channel speaker output on your amp.
If your Amp has a sub-woofer output and you have a subwoofer, make the connections on that as well.
Test all of the speakers with a feature that many amps have on the menu using your remote, simply called test. if all speakers are connected correctly you will be able to hear each one as they are individually tested by the amp. Hope this helps out.
I'm not quite sure of how the two amps are interacting here, so I'd like to request that you describe the entire hookup. Sending a higher signal from the mixer should not be a problem, but something is wrong in the setup (I think).
Please update this with a description of how you have the mixer and amps connected to the speakers.
You can hook up the speaker "between" left and right outputs. Just connect the center speaker between left +ve and right +ve outputs respectively. It will give a spacial effect that some like and some dont:) Try it and see for yourself. Your marantz amp will handle the load OK. It is rated 38 watts into 8 ohms, but there is not alot of load presented by this sort of setup. Let me know what you think.
1200x with over heating output...does not care if it has a load unless it is too low,(Scott is wrong)..you have a leaky output, or a triac firing and clamping down the voltage to the speakers..the foldback shutdown may also be leaky, but these usually cause it blow fuses, and these get damaged by bad outputs or running the amp into shorts..since this amp has some really high voltages in it I suggest you take it to a shop before you KILL YOURSELF!
