Interesting problem cropped up this week with my two front speakers. At first the Right front speaker did not work in Surround Sound mode(I use a NAD T760 Amp). Fiddled around with the wiring, cleaned the connection, and suddenly it worked...for a while. While the Right front worked I tested it in Stereo mode, and suddenly the Left front speaker, which worked in Suround Mode, did not work, while the one on the Right did...huh??
After more fiddling I am back to square one where the Left works in both modes and the Right in none.
Not sure what it can be...I live close to the sea - do you think it can have anything to do with damp air on the connections?

Re: No sound from Front Speaker
Take amp to a workbench, have a test speaker in hand, touch the speaker wires to each channel to see if all channels work. take each speaker to the amp and temporarily hook one at a time to see if any speaker is bad. if you eliminate the hardware, you know it's the wires in between.

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer. surround sound unit sub woofer left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in
right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in
now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer. sub woofer front surround sound speaker left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker
right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker
Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone Mark Woodring
It may sound silly, but can you check all your speaker cables again and confirm whether they are connected to the right connections. please check all cables as also the severed one and please repair it also.
Now please go to the system-set-up and do an auto setup and set up your speakers. Listen to the test tones and confirm that they are coming out of the correct speaker.
Once these are set, then if still there is mismatch of sounds, then we could further trouble shoot.
Might be a loose connection problem. A contact cleaner is handy in cleaning the terminals. Try to swap the speaker connections if you don't have a multi-tester to check the resistance of the speakers. If the right front speaker will sound after connecting it to the left front speaker output, then it is a speaker coil problem. If not, might be an amplifier channel problem.
1-make a reset to your system.2-repeat your speaker setup.3-confirm that you assign your sysem for 5 chanell surround system.-4-change the cables between left and right front speakers if the trouble go to left channel you will have a problem in receiver itself-if the problem exict you will have a problem in speaker itself(cable or speaker)
