    Hello all.

    Well, it has been one month tomorrow since I purchased my Onkyo HTS-760 system. I had some questions at the beginning but everything had been AWESOME until now.

    My right surround speaker stopped working today.
    It is from the HTS-760 and according to the instruction manual it model is SKM-200S.

    It is not blown. I checked the speaker wires and they are fine. I even swapped it with my surround left speaker. It didn't work in the left spot, and the left worked in the right spot. So, I am pretty sure it is a speaker problem.

    Basicly the speaker puts out no or little sound. When I run the speaker test from the receiver no sound is heard from it. Sometimes, with the volume up a decent amount I can hear very low sound coming from the speaker.

    I am taking the speaker back tomorrow. I was just wondering if anyone knows what could be the cause and what caused this to happen? I would like to ensure that I did nothing wrong, and if I did, I would like to know so I don't do it again. My receiver can't cause the speaker to fail in this way, can it? I swapped it out with my rear-center so I have at least 5.1 at this time.

    Thanks for the help.

    It just sounds like a bad connection internal of the speaker to me.
