I own them, they just are not hooked up (there is also no place to put the center speaker with my current set up). Getting speaker wire and hooking them up would only band aid a problem I do not yet know how to solve otherwise, which I am trying to do. The 2 fronts are indeed hooked up properly, as in they are not plugged into the jacks for the rears or anything. Center is turned OFF, so my receiver SHOULDN'T be believing it is there. This is the problem I wish to solve.
