    It appears I am getting different signals on my "A" and "B" speaker outputs.
    The speakers on my "B" outputs were not getting anywhere near the bass that my "A" channels were getting and swapping the wires around on the receiver confirmed this...definitely not my speakers or the wiring, the Better signal stays with whatever speakers are on "A"
    I am looking at purchasing a different receiver anyway but is this a common occurrence?

    It is common. You will have more funtionality to adjust things like cutoff frequency, bass boost, etc. on your mains.
    I have 2 amps. one sony 5.1 that I use A and B to power 4 speakers in my living room. on this amp the tweeks only happen to the A speakers, not the B
    the other amp I have is for my HTR, on Onkyo 803. On this one I do have the abilty to adjust everything on every speaker. I think the only reason I can do this is because it is 7.1 and you either have 7.1 or zone 2 powered, but not both.
    Other option is to do seperates.
