So I just received my Polk Audio CS2 and plugged it all in but when I go to Channel Level test it... no sound comes out.

I tried plugging it into a Front channel and then it starts outputting white noise. Tried plugging it into a rear and it also outputs noise.

I tried plugging FL speaker into the Center channel and that doesnt output sound.

Is there some sort of setting i'm missing? I see it showing stereo in certain menu areas, and under information it shows 2/0/0 as far as speakers?

I also tried a microprocessor reset and that didnt fix it.

Thanks guys!

I just tried running the Audyssey set up (was going to wait till my subwoofer came before I did it) and it made that sound test thru the FL and FR speakers. When it was trying to test the center speaker no audio could be heard.

As mentioned before, I plugged the center speakers into FL and sound output (which to me says the speaker and the wiring are both fine).

Whats left is some hidden setting I'm missing or the channel is dead?

go into the speaker setup menu and see if you can turn the center speaker to SMALL or LARGE instead of NONE

Press Menu
Manual Setup
Speaker Setup
Speaker Config

Are you using bare wire or banana plugs for your connections?

I had the Center channel on Large and Small and both output no sound...

I'm using banana plugs. I confirmed the wires are okay by plugging the center speaker into FL port in the receiver and can confirm it works.

Plugging the FL speaker into the center channel outputs nothing frown.gif

might have to send in for repair then.

You're not listening in stereo are you? or Direct mode?

I found the other modes... I dont have the OEM remote so I had to use my harmony. Still no center sound. Seems like the channel is dead.

I tried MOVIE: and all the different modes within Movie and it still doesnt have any sounds from the center channel.
