My parents bought a house a few years ago that has a home theater of sorts in the basement. The original setup was a Yamaha RX-V992 receiver, PSB front and center speakers, a powered sub that says "Velodyne DLS", and two white surround speakers mounted to the ceiling that I can't identify. At some point, the receiver started shutting down when there was a really loud noise in the movie. In the Dark Knight, for example, it might shut down when the bank teller walks out of his office and shoots his shot gun in the first chapter.
We were told that the receiver was busted, so we basically just used the system a lot less from that point on. Recently, I bought my dad an Onkyo TX-NR609 for his birthday and fathers day. After some setup, however, the same issue persisted.
Do you guys have any advice for troubleshooting this? We are having some real difficulties getting past this issue. One thing worth noting is that when we were using the audyssey setup, the front right speaker sounded a bit quieter than the others. We also have the receiver and a few other items inside of a wooden box in a cabinet that slides in and out a bit, and my father was concerned that the track may have frayed the wire. I took a look and did not see anything.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might have.
