    The centre speaker of my Sony STR-KSL5 stops working after a few mins of turning it on. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

    :lease:

    if it's still under warranty then definitly
    if not then an indipendant repair shop will probably be cheaper

    Do a double check that there is no shorting of the speaker cable at both the amplifier and speaker end.

    There's no shorting. That happens if the two speaker cables touch each other while connected right?

    What sort of shop can I take it to to get it repaired?

    A single strand of copper from a woven speaker cable is enough to cause a short - and it doesnt just have to touch the other speaker cable, it could happen if its touching the rear metal panel also.

    you could try using banana plugs and see what happens. Silly question but are you sure that the wires are properly secured i the amp and speaker

    The wires are properly secured. The speaker works fine for about 5 mins after turning the receiver on. Thats only after leaving it off for a few mins. The problem isn't with the speaker as I've tried other speakers and it still happens.

    What are banana plugs?
