    Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this.  As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver.  To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:

       1.
          Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
       2.
          Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
       3.
          If the problem still continues, try these steps:
             1.
                Turn the receiver off.
             2.
                Remove one speaker.
             3.
                Turn the receiver on.
             4.
                Increase the volume.

    If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time).  If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center.  It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.
