The 818 can do 7.2 natively, but to do 9.2 it needs an external amp, So I bought the 5 channel amp to power the 3 fronts, and 2 side surrounds, then I will let the receiver power the remaining 4. Our 818's power rating is 135w/channel when there is only 2 channels driven, the more speakers we hook up, the lower the power to each one is.
I have Klipsch speakers all the way around in my setup, RB-61's for fronts, RC-62 for center, and RS-41's for sides and surrounds, then 2 PSA XV-15 subs.
