Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, the only easy check (if have not been tried) would be to run again the Yamaha with no speakers connected to the EXTRA SP terminals but the ZONE2 volume set lowest. The idea is to determine if it is speaker/wire related or an internal hardware issue. Check or consider (temporarily) replacing the pool speakers and/or its wiring.Preferably, use the resistance/continuity function on a multi-meter and measure the pool speakers/wiring. The minimum reading should be ~8Ω.If an internal hardware issue, are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, you may need access to and familiarity with the use of a soldering iron. Equally important, could you make use of the schematic diagrams?
