So I finally bought some speakers this weekend and have been trying to hook them up to my receiver for two days now with no success. My receiver is a Denon AVR-2805 and the speakers are Klipsch Quintet SLs. Here is what I have tried: Hooked a speaker into the center channel as well as front R and L channels on the RX and tried to get the test tone to output. No luck. I can hear faint static from the speakers when they are connected but can't get any sound to come out of them no matter what the input source on the receiver is (DVD, PS2, Tuner, etc) Yes, the receiver is plugged in No, the volume on the receiver isn't turned all the way down No, I haven't had speakers hooked up to the receiver in the past Yes, I am sure the speakers work, I hooked them up to an old stereo No, the speaker wire isn't the problem At this point I am out of ideas. I've consulted the manual and as far as I can tell I have done everything in there that I need to to set the speakers up. If there is anyone out there who's got the same receiver and can give me some pointers as to what the hell I am doing wrong or if there is some setting on the receiver that needs to be tripped to get sound to output to the speakers, I would greatly appreciate it.
