I am having a VERY strange problem...my left speaker is outputting about 75-90 percent (my guess) of what the right speaker is outputting. I figured this was because I am using a very long cable for the left speaker and there is signal loss and/or a problem with the cable. Just to test, I switched my Left and Right speaker inputs on the receiver (I sent the cable for my left speaker to the right input, and sent the cable for my right speaker to the left input). Now the sound was perfectly balanced!!! Of course the L/R channels were reversed...but no longer was one speaker "dominating"...is this manner of hookup, the vocals are quite a bit clearer/fuller and the overall sound--though excellent before--is truly awesome now! speakers: Def Tech 2000TL's receiver: yamaha dspA1 cables: Monster One note: For the bass, I have them wired "full range" where the short end of a y-connector is sent to the "main in" and "pre out" of the receiver, and the long end is sent to the speaker. I had this wired correctly (Left to Left, Right to Right) and have tried switching them with no difference in results. It's seems strange to me to keep the wires switched like that...but I think it may be worth it for now considering the output difference. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks a lot!
