I bought this receiver in 2003 and I thought I had the speakers hooked up correctly until today it's a 5.1 system but when i do a speaker test it starts with FR then to Center then to FL then it goes to Surround Back Right to Surround back Left I have mine hooked up to surround left and right which surround should i use?

Sounds like you have a receiver that supports 7.1/7.2.. If so, and you are using as a 5.1, use the surround L/R.. Surround back L/R is for 7.1.. So sounds like you have it connected up correctly for 5.1..

If you want to add 2 additional speakers to go 7.1, yes it could. But that would depend on you room layout and stuff like that. And for the movies that support it. But if you mean to use surround back L/R INSTAED of surround L/R for 5.1?? No it will not and would not work correctly. What is the receiver model?

That is a 5.1 receiver.. The other binding post connection is for the older sub connection style. Use the surround L/R connections...
