Why bother? If you're going to use a 6CH amp anyway, just power Front Wide/Zone 2/Zone 3, otherwise, you'll have to manually set the "Powered Zone 2/3" setting ON/OFF each time you want to use one configuration or the other. Makes no sense.

Because my 6 channel amp is 80 watts while 5010 can deliver 150watts, also the amp I'm planning to buy is upa700 and it will turn all six speakers are n three different zones on. Correct me if I am wrong.

The power shouldn't be a deciding factor here unless 3dB (likely a bit less) is of supreme importance here- 80w from a dedicated amplifier (not a channel from a AV receiver) is likely indistinguishable from the 150w you "may" get out of the receiver.


Remember- a doubling of power (watts) raises SPL by 3dB- if you haven't already bought speakers for the Zone2/Zone3 it may make more sense to spec slightly higher efficiency models if you think that 80w isn't enough juice.


And the Emotiva will only be powering the speakers that you are sending a signal to the Emotiva to play- so no- it won't be playing all 6 channels everytime the Emotiva is on. It will be capable of doing this, but if you don't send the Onkyo signal to each and every channel of the emotive then some speakers will be mute.
