I belive i hooked my receiver up in a series (??) connection i went postive from speaker a to negative on speaker b and etc, speakers work fine, but when i went to hookup a smaller speaker just to see how it whould sound the samll speaker didn't work of course i turn on the remote on my receiver (for the extra speakers) it just turned on the small speaker. so long story short when i have my nice speakers playing and i go to switch on one speaker it just truns on the one speaker and vice versa. Could it be the way i have my speakers plugged in ??
