    Checked the cables swapped side to side and still the same.
    Then I used a differnet set of cabinets and still the same.
    Pointers of what went in the reciever?

    Thanks Al

    Check the "balance" knob to make sure it did not get twisted. Also check the speaker wires on both ends to make sure all your connections are tight & clean/un-broken.

    Your post is rather confusing. What does "a different set of cabinets" mean? And "still the same" means the same side was still weak or the same output was still weak?

    Try this:

    - Tell us is the Right side or Left side weak?
    - Turn off the receiver
    - Swap the main speaker connections in the back so that the LEFT-SPEAKER is plugged into the RIGHT output. Plug the RIGHT-SPEAKER into the LEFT output.
    - Turn on the receiver and tell us which side is now weak.


    If the weakness switched, it's likely the output of the receiver. If the weakness did-not move, it's likely your speaker or speaker wire.

    Bob.
    Thanks took a few minutes but I got it.
    No I have use the balance and swapped the cables as I do HT installs.
    But over looked my own mistake.
    Furniture.
    To close and damping the right side.
    After a look around I got it.
    Just to quick to post with out looking at the couch or 12 pillows on that side of the room.

    Thanks Al
