First would be to disconnect all the speakers from the receiver and reconnect each one. The most common cause of this is a stray strand of wire that shorts to the chassis. If you aren't using connectors for the wire, like bananas, I would start doing so as insurance against stray wire strands because I have seen receivers do what you describe due to just a few stray strands. Second, I would verify that the polarity for all speaker connections (+/-) are correct and consistent across all speakers. Does it do the same thing in stereo only? Try disconnecting the center and surrounds and running it in stereo to see if it does the same thing.

A blown tweeter in one of your speakers can cause this behavior.

Yep, that would be the third thing to check. That one should be noticable though because one or more speakers would sound funny. If you can't hear it, when you disonnect the speakers, reconnect just one at a time and try each out; you may have more than one damaged driver.
