I read your reply to try another speaker. My system has speaker wires that merge into one computer type plug. I have had problems with the one speaker's volume going way low until you "stomp" the floor. It happens for a few days and then is fine for a month or so. Any suggestions.

Re: 1 speaker playing
The next time it happens, try "thumping" the low speaker instead of the floor, it's probably a connection problem inside. I would need a lot more info about the system to even guess about a better diagnosis.

Double check that you have the correct speaker wires in the correct terminals. If not sure a AA BATTERY tapped quickly across two wire leads and you will hear it crackle/snap. Very helpful when trying to identity speaker Chanels. If no sound. Check wires and speaker. Some speaker boxes will have: built in adjustable crossovers, inline fuses to protect speaker from blowout(also in some stereo units) and then could always double check fade and balance. # of channels playing, and a few other things as we go into the future
If you are trying to play a cd, you must manually tell the unit to play it in surround sound. Cd audio defaults to stereo only. Does it do the same thing if you are playing a dvd? If it happens on dvd's as well, then something in the speaker setup menu is wrong.
Fastest way to check this is to disconnect all speaker wires from the unit leaving the video hooked up and play a disc. If it keeps playing fine, you have a speaker or wire problem. If it still reacts the same, it's an internal problem and would need to be serviced. If the unit continues to play, post a reply and I will describe in detail how to troubleshoot the system. Hope this helps
Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls. http://support.radioshack.com/support_audio/doc61/61792.pdf
Take out all the speaker wires. Then unplug the unit for 30 minutes, come back and plug in all the speaker wires. making sure not a strand is anywhere but in the hole. and then plug back in the unit, This system is good at doing this and then if you do what i said everything is good. Best of luck
