    I was watching Star Wars Episode 2 today and during the explosion in the first scene my audio cut out on my mains but everything else still played fine. Is this my speakers(powered towers) or the receiver?

    First, check your speaker wires to make sure the L/R speakers are wired neatly with no copper strands sticking out to cause a short.

    Second, turn down the volume and try again. Put the explosion in a A->B repeat loop and slowly increase the volume until the problem occurs.

    Third, check the connection between the DVD player and the receiver to make sure you are using a Video cable or a "digital" cable and not some random audio interconnect. This often causes drop-outs when people use the wrong cable. But in their cases all the audio drops, not just the front 2 speakers.
