    Went to hookup my surround sound speakers for the first time even though my receiver is 5 years old.When I hooked up the left channel I got nothing but the right channel works. Besides getting a new receiver what would be my best options at getting the closest thing to surround sound without the one side working?

    The only thing you can do is to set your single rear centered in the rear. You could also run the two surrounds in either series or parallel then you would get the right surround out of both speakers. This may however put a strain on the reciever. Lastly if the reciever has pre ins and outs you could maybe find a cheap amp to power the rears.[​IMG]
