You don't say what source(s) are affected. I'm guessing TV or Cable-TV is the problem because music with vocals has voices and you say it sounds ok. Your speakers have no clue whether a sound is a voice or music so that lets THEM out and your receiver doesn't know or care either.

In the modern multichannel world it's usually assumed your electronics are multichannel. This receiver is old-school stereo.

The Center channel is usually where voices are found but some systems (like yours) don't have a Center speaker so they have to be configured to share the Center duty with the front left and Right speakers.This isn't possible or even normally necessary in your case. WYSIWYG

The audio coming in from 'wherever' should be correctly mixed to 2-channels at the source or you'll probably be missing something. I'd look higher up the audio food chain for where the voices are being attentuated. If a cable box is involved I'd look at its audio settings regarding stereo mix-down

Wait, I just had an inspiring thought. Centered voices being mono in nature would partially cancel out if your two speakers were out of 'phase' with each other. Bass would also suffer. Make sure your two speakers are wired identically regarding the red and black (or plus and minus) conductors. If turning the Balance control fully to one side makes bass of voices sound louder you probably have a phase mismatch. Reverse the wiring on either speaker to match the other. There is no absolute right or wrong for phasing as long as they're all the same.

Hooked to surround sound, two front speakers, 4 wall speakers, 1 sub woofer. Restart unit and reduce volume unit is OK but normal talking is too low.


Voice tracks are usually routed to the center channel. You don't mention having a center channel speaker hooked up. If this is the case, then you need to go into the receivers setup menu and set it for no center. This will reroute the voice tracks to your front speakers.

I plug in the receiver and nothing happens; no light indicaters, no sound


Some commonlpace questions, ok, you don't need an expert for that:
Did you try another electric outlet?
Did you check plug, cable and connections to your receiver?
Did you try pressing on - off several times?

I have just bought a new Onkyo TX-NR808 and set it up over the week end with new 'accusound' surround sound speakers. Have bi-amp the front speakers. I don't think I am getting very good sound out of it?...


Depending on the amplifier, it might not provide enough power (in Watts) to the speakers. If the speakers require more power, it won't be as loud.

My onkyo tx-8222 suddenly stopped amplifying on both speakers and headphones. I can hear music faintly with the volume at max (just the pre-amp?). Time for a new amp?


Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Powered sub only has sound while watching a dvd or listening to music on Onkyo TX-SR607


So perhaps it's a source sound issue. THAT would best be investigated at the Dish receiver. Consider it's audio settings and how it interfaces with the Onkyo.

Graphic equalizer


In general all equalizers, being designed to be in a Tape Monitor loop, have the option to Equalize either the Source or the Tape or nothing. Check for that control and toggle it. My old ADC SS-525X has pushbuttons whose settings (Tape/Source) are not easily determined. I always have to play around with it to know which is selected.

I'm betting your EQ is processing the program that would head out to an attached tape deck.
