i doubt its your speakers. The amp is shorting out, check all of your speaker cables and keep the + and - wires from touching each other. Keep doing this and the amp will fry.

Pyrotecnics are usually the death knell of electronics.

As the others said, check your speaker wires to be sure bare wires don't touch each other anywhere.

If that's all well and good and it still doesn't work, then it's time to get it sercviced.

If it is under warranty, get it fixed. If it is out, buy a real receiver. Not a Sony, Pioneer, JVC, Kenwood, or something like that. The few dollars more that a Yamaha, Denon, Marantz, or h/k will run you won't be noticed a decade from now.

That is a real common Sony problem.
