To see if there may be a problem with the speakers or the receiver's center output, you should be able to temporarily swap the center speaker with either the left or right one.

Exactly. This will test the center channel output from the receiver and verify the speaker you want to use for center channel is working correctly.

Check your spam/ junk folder on your computer and see if replies are going there.

To clarify, when you say you changed the input, was it just a different output from the receiver (e.g. radio FM as opposed to a DVD or other) to the center channel? Was that radio music on the same/original center speaker or from one of the other speakers that you switched and are using as a center channel?

If you have done my previously suggested speaker swap test and confirmed that all three speakers are functional, you may have incorrect speaker system settings on the receiver. Take a look at section #3 on page 16 of the manual in my earlier link and see if your receiver has the same speaker system settings options. If so, I believe you need to have them configured as "2WAY 3SPKR".

Section #4 on page 17 discusses using a built-in test tone generator to test the speaker outputs. If your receiver has that feature, you could use that to confirm the amplifier channels and speakers are all good.

OhhhhKaaaay. Maybe you should provide us with a drawing or sketch of how you exactly have all of the hardware (speakers, amplifiers, receivers, audio sources, etc.) interconnected.

I did not ask for the physical layout of where things are in the room. I asked for information on how things are interconnected. That is to say, we need to know exactly which output on one device is connected to which specific input on another device

Based on your drawing there is nothing shown being connected to the input of the Kenwood receiver.
