Default Cealing speakers?

We got ceiling speakers many years go and cabinests from costco on the right and left of tv. But I disconnected it all many years ago and around then and forgot how it all goes back together.

I took pics. Everything is wired. I think the banana plugs go in the back of the receiver as photoed. But not sure about the rest.

4th pic shows 6 plugs. 4 labeled front right, fron left, rear right, rear left. You cant see it in the pic but that is what it says.

I assume those are the 4 ceiling speakers. And the empty 2 on the right say Aux. Spk. Not sure what those are for.

I think the last 2 pictures "sonance volume control vc506" or 8 not sure is where those 2 plugs went. I remember it controlling the ceiling speakers somehow.

Don't remember what it did or how it worked.

And I don't remember how the amp thing (3rd pic from the bottom on top of the sonance) worked either or where to hook it into the receiver.

And I don't remember how the others on the side and top of the tv center work. I only have 5 sets of bananas in the back of the receiver. 4 for the ceiling and 1 more probably so 2 are missing.

OK, I rewired everything now. I went to bestbuy and got banana plugs for the missing section on the receiver. Now all is good. The missing wire on the wall were added. I had just enough for the 2 missing bananas. I looked at the manual and added it all correctly. Front in front and back under neath. Center in the center and side speakers on the bottom labeled surround.

I removed the pic of the missing wires and the back of the receiver and replaced them with the ones of all the wires added (nothing missing)

Now I just need your help to figure out what buttons to press on the receiver to make the tv sound come from the ceiling.

Never mind I got it all working. I hit analog/digital button on the receiver and not it works. No other changes except assigning the digital coaxial to dvd/vdp. Now sound comes out of my speakers. The rca cables were useless and no sound comes out of the tv. But no need the side speakers and center are good enough. And once in a while during certain scenes the sound comes from the ceiling speakers. But only the front ones and not the back. But for now I can watch my bluray.

I have a few. But I rented anchorman 2 from redbox tonight. In the very beginning the shark scene and 1 minute or so after that come from the ceiling front speakers. After that it dies down and stops from the ceiling. It starts again when the title anchorman 2 comes on the screen. And 3 ceonds later no more cealing sound except some at the seaworld scene right afterwards. So off and on.

Now I just need to figure out what that amp thing on the floor in the bak of my tv is. And how to make the back speakers work. And how to use tv to speakers also. But my bluray good enough for now.

So thanks for all the help.
