Running X4000 & I am using a Denon AVR 988 as my external amp for 2 sets of speakers. One to run Front Wide, the other to give the X4000 a little more headroom. Set it up like this last month but after sending it to a service shop, cannot figure out exactly how it was all set up before. Here’s what I’ve done…

Ran set of RCA plugs from X4000 pre outs (using Front Wide & Rear Surround jacks) to 988’s Ext In (using Surround L/R & Front A jacks). And then speaker wire from front wides & rear surround goes to the corresponding speaker posts on the 988 (Front A & Surround L/R). Changed settings on 988 to zero all levels (except volume) & run it in Ext In. On the X4000 I changed Amp Assign to 9.1 & chose Front Wide as Main Pre Amps. Even set the Front Wide as on & + 2 on stage. But whenever I run Test Tone there is nothing from the Front Wides. Rear Surrounds are working fine. I tried changing Surround Sound field to ASX (with Wide) & still no go.

What am I missing here? Should I instead be amping the Side Surround on the set up because you cannot ext amp & run both Rear Surround & Front Wide in the 9.1 because you can only ext amp assign one OR the other? Is there something I missed setting up within the 988 menus?

Thanks guys!
