Russound Caa66, only one speaker of each pair has sound.

So I bought a new place. It came with whole home audio. Caa66. Im using a denon w1300. I have the second zone stuff all working. There are the 6 zones, 5 of the 6 zones have 2 speakers. All the Zones with 2 speakers, only 1 of the 2 works.... Im assuming its some sort of setting Im overlooking but honeslty dont have a clue.
Everything is hooked up correctly as far as I can tell... I mean, its 4 speaker wires per zone...

If it was one or 2, Id assume something was wrong but since its all of them, seems like Im missing something. Its also with all sources, doesnt matter what its with.

Anyone have any ideas? Russound has been extremely unhelpful. They wont even answer 1 question, just keep trying to get me to an installer, even though the system is 7 years old.... urgh... lol

Check the RCA Cable.

Swap the red and the white .... now do you have sound in the other speaker only?

If FlyOnTheWall's suggestion doesn't move the sound to the other speaker, then try swapping the speaker wires to isolate if the issue is the amp or the speaker / wiring.
You can also disconnect the speaker wires and put the Plus and Minus to a 9 volt battery for a split second. You should hear the speaker lightly Pop if all is good. if no sound, then disconnect the wire at the speaker and try the battery there to isolate bad wiring from bad speaker.

9V battery is kind of overkill.. just use a AAA or AA

Ya, not the cable lol
Took the amp to my buddys electronics shop. Multiple issues. 450$ for parts to fix.... yup, shes in the trash.
Grabbed a Niles SI-1230 to replace it. Should be a substantial upgrade.
