Audyssey setup for the 5.1 Speakers using NR-616

Post  ravikant495 on Tue Sep 25, 2012 6:52 pm


I installed the Bose Satelite speakers 5.1 Model in my 15/15 Family living room and hooked up my new Onkyo NX-616 receiver. The speakers are installed on four corners of the sealing and my sofa is placed just 1.5 ft away from the back speakers wall. I mean the distance between the sofa and the back speakers is less than 2 ft.

While configuring the speaker setup through Audyssey, the system is detecting my back speakers are the side speakers since I do not have the additional right and left side speakers for the 7.2 channel setup. Will it produce the expected surround system or my speaker setup is wrong and my back speakers should detect as rear front and rear back instead of the side speakers? The Audyseey setup is really confusing and complicated and do you have any suggestions?

Hello Ravi;

When using a 5.1 speaker setup; your speakers should be connected in the following terminals:

- SURR L + R

There should be NO connection in SURR BACK L + R speaker terminals, as that supports a 7.1 speaker layout. Please relocate your SURR BACK speaker connection to the SURR L + R speaker terminals and also go into the SETUP menu of the receiver and under SPEAKER SETUP> SP CONFIG: scroll down and select NONE for the following speaker channels:


You can now re-attempt Audyssey setup calibration again and it should commence successfully. If you have any more questions or issues, Please contact our Product Support Dept for further assistance with this specific issue via our phone number and hours of operation (Monday- Friday 9am to 8pm EST/ Saturday- Sunday 10am to 4pm EST: (800) 229-1687; option #3 PRODUCT SUPPORT).
