I have a Klipsch soundbar I used in my old theater. Recently bought a bigger house so I am wanting to build a new, bigger theater with real 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. Instead of selling the soundbar, I am debating on hooking it in my living room along with my Bose 5.1 surround sound for "super sound".
I have the Denon AVR-1913 which only has speaker outputs.
Here's my setup:
Denon receiver with the Bose 5.1 surround connected. All my media boxes (ps3, cable box, blue ray) connect to the inputs of the receiver, then the 1 HDMI out from the receiver goes to the tv....Pretty simple. My only dilemma is connecting the soundbar too.
Only way I can think of that will be "safe" is just connect the soundbar to the digital output on the tv which is fine, but would be controlling the volume for the surround speakers and soundbar separately...correct?
I also don't feel it's safe to convert speaker wire to rca since the speaker wire outputs provide amp power. Any suggestions or did I already solve the problem by just connecting it to the tv and dealing with seperate volume controls?
