I have an Onkyo 706 Receiver and would like to run the test tones
through all of the speakers as a stand-alone test without having
to run through the calibration/setup process. Is that possible and
how would I do it?

Reason: No sound is coming out of rear center speaker. It used to
but I had to disconnect it during the Holidays and now I do not get
any audio from it and I want to be able to run the test tones.

Many Thanks for any information..

Did you reconnect it to the Surr Back (L) speaker posts as required? Otherwise check for a "Level Calibration" section in the Owner's manual.

Check to see it is selected/on in setup. Maybe you disabled it when disconnected.

Thanks for the information.
The wires were reconnected.
I will do a calibration check for that speaker.

Is it possible to send the test tones through the
speakers without doing anything else?

Thanks

Maybe it did get disabled. That's a good thought.

I'll check.
Many Thanks...!!!!

Most receivers have a speaker identification test pattern.
Go into 'speaker setup, then 'calibration'.
