Hey all,

I have a new Pioneer VSX-515-K 6.1 receiver. I decided to go with the 2 rear center-back setup. Now, I know everything is hooked up correctly -- however, when I go to receiver setup (which allowed me to choose 7.1) and do the manual test tone level adjustments, it seems that when the receiver is on the "SB" (surround backs) tone, that the audio is coming from the "normal" l and r speakers. and when it's on SL or SR mode, the sound comes from the back centers.... is this normal and just the way the setup works or something? I am a little confused....

Check your wiring, sounds like you have them wired backwards. I've done it before...Posted Image
