I have Bose am10, it's 5.1. Upgraded to new reciever which is 7.1

Do I simply add 2 speakers to the middle (surround) speaker outputs to have 7.1 sound? The Bose speakers are already wired through the walls, center, front right and left, and the 2 rear speakers are also already installed at the back corners of the room.

Thanks

Welcome to AVSForum! smile.gif

In your existing 5.1 setup, regardless of whether your current "side" surround speakers are actually placed in the back of the room, they would still be connected to the "Surround" SL/SR speaker posts. If you decide to add two more speakers for a 7.1 setup and actually place them to the sides of your couch, you would then connect them to the SL/SR speaker posts and move the existing rear speakers to the SBL/SBR speaker posts. Also note that the 5007 is capable of Front Height speakers as well as an alternative to using the SBL/SBR audio channels.

Also note there is a Marantz 5007 Owner's thread you may want to review and post any additional questions there.
