ok, i think my setup is all wrong. i have onkyo 606 5.1 setup
for my surround sound speakers i have them placed three feet behind me, i don't really have a good spot to put them on the side. my question is, should i change the surround sound speakers to surround sound back speakers on the receiver? would that make a difference? i also did a audio test with pixar walle in the setup menu. when i go select each individual speaker in the setup the surround sound speakers don't come on at all but the two front speakers do come on instead.

Do not connect the surround speakers to the "surround back" terminals if you're only running 5.1. The receiver will automatically mix surround back information into the surround channels but can't do vice-versa so you'll not get any surround sound connected that way excep on 7.1 source material.
