Need a little more info:
You bought a surround system with 5 speakers and a subwoofer. did you put a single speaker in each room, or have you hooked up multiple pairs via a speaker switch box? Which model of Pioneer do you have?
My initial thought was that you've switched your receiver in to a surround sound mode, when you should have it set to 5 channel stereo, which will enable all of your speakers if you are just running the five Polks.

Just an addition to the previous reply, make sure that all your speakers are fully plugged into the receiver. I know it sounds dumb but many times its as simple as being a loose connection

Just thought I'd shed some light here. I installed this system for the OP. The Pioneer system is in 5 channel stereo mode (advanced stereo if I remember it correctly). The connections are all fine at the speakers and the amplifier. There is no sub connected.
The 2 speakers that cut out are always the same, and powering off and back on the amplifier seems to solve the problem short term, but it starts cutting out again.
It seems to me the amplifier is defective. Thoughts?

If its possible try plugging those two speakers into a different port (example if they are the front speakers plug them in as rear speakers) and see if they still cut out, that way you can determine if its the speakers themselves or the reciever causing the problems
