You're really tackling this project head on, BTW. No one could say your anti-schematic.

Well, the other day, the center speaker began failing. Yesterday, all but one failed. The speakers were not dead. They made little noises, but no longer carried the movie. I doubt that the system is worth taking to get it repaired. Likely it will get trashed.

@edgarblythe,
Mayben the problem is an output chip in the amplifier. These days no one troubleshoots down to chip level ..though there are some TV electronics repair shops that could fix it. The replacement for your amp is not overly expensive unless money is tight.

@edgarblythe,
If that's the case (lack of $$$), I'd call a good TV electronics repair place and see if they would give you and idea of the cost, but typically they charge anywhere from $50-$95 for diagnosis which would apply for towards the bill if you said yes to repair.

Personally, if I thought the repair place was not an option, I'd look at the used market on Craigslist classified ads. You can find a decent one for $250-300 instead of say a $500-$700.

If that's something that sounds plausible, let me offer you my assistance in selecting a potential worthwhile one...just private message me and I'll help however I can. I'm pretty knowledgable about stereos and home theater etc.

@edgarblythe,
Wouldn't this still fall under the manufacturer's warranty?

It was a used gift from a man at my job.

@edgarblythe,
Manufacturer's warranty should still apply. At least, many warranties still apply with computer equipment.

@DrewDad,
Many amplifiers and receivers have a 1 yr warranty.

@Ragman,
I suppose showing date of purchase could be a problem.

I got Dolby surround sound! A dude at the apartments gave it to me. It's used, but good as new. I just had to buy vcr wires with the red, yellow and white connections and figure it out with no instructions. Just got it playing, I'm certain I will be fine tuning it. I am in a room at the end of the hall, more than twenty feet away and I hear Dirty Harry loud and clear.

The same guy gave my lead maintenance man a big screen TV and the other guy a smaller TV.
That is exactly what I was going to tell you to do and then you posted this.

There is so much of this electric gadgetry being consumed that anybody can easily find some recycled TV speakers.

In fact e-waste is becoming a big problem. You can go through the average Americans house and find piles of perfectly good trash under their new trash.
