My center speaker is suddenly going static with drop outs, how do I fix it?
For the last 4 out of 5 movies I have watched (Matrix, Reloaded, Revolutions, Transformers RotF, and Inglorious Basterds), my center speaker ends up going all static and audio drop outs for a minute or two, and then it goes back to normal for a while. However, it does not do it in the same spots every time I rewatch that scene. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on and how do I fix it?"...somewhere out there, michael bay now has the basis for his next film...and it's all your fault." - project-blu

An electrical short perhaps...basic thing would be to ensure the wiring is securely connected to both the speaker and the receiver.

Run some test cd's that test all channels like the THX disc. Could be speaker side, could be receiver side, could be wire. You gotta eliminate the possibilities.Intel i5 2500k (@4.7Ghz) + XFX Radeon 7970 3GB RAM! + 16GB DDR3 RAM (STEAM/Origin: Nealon_Greene)

My troubleshooting process always starts by switching the speaker wires at the back of the receiver, then if nothing changes, switching the wires at the speakers. Or if you think it's a problem with the player you swap that out next.RIP Kosty you are missed.

Yep, I'll bet it is your speaker's wiring. Make sure they are fit at both ends.
