- check to make sure ALL speaker wires are properly connected to the back of the receiver: nice and tight and no loose wire strands that may come in contact with each other.
- in your receiver setup menu, the speaker output level could have been accidentally set so that the volume on your surrounds is way higher. Go in the receiver menu and check to make sure they are set evenly or better yet, use an SPL to set them at reference levels
- swap your surrounds wires with the fronts and see if the problem is consistent. Do the same with the center, swap it with one of the surrounds. This will tell you if the speakers are good or not. MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF AND UNPLUG YOUR EQUIPMENT WHILE YOU SWAP WIRES!!
- There is always the chance that your receiver's terminals are defective in which case the above test would only work if you swap each speaker with say one of the surrounds...
Good luck !!
