    I'm 99% sure EVERYTHING is connected correctly. I ran the test tones and heard noise from every channel (FL, FR, RR, LR) except the center. The speaker works, tested that on another channel. Any idea what I might be missing? Possible that the center amp is dead even though everything else works? :/

    Make sure in the setup that your center channel is not set up to "phantom"

    alright, I downloaded the manual.

    was able to set up the center speaker (configuration wise) however when I run my test tones I get sound from all speakers EXCEPT center :/

    try hooking up one of your other speakers to the center channel's output and see if you can hear the test tone.

    On movies, do you hear voices or are they really quiet and hard to hear?

    I hooked the center speakre to the other channels and I hear the tone from the speaker. I don't hear anything on movies, I've only tried once, but I don't even hear the test tones so I figure :/

    When I disconnect the preamp center - center in (its this bridge RCA thing) i hear static...but nothin else.
