I believe you're going to an all Klipsch system except for Micca overhead speakers. I believe they are 8 ohm, high efficiency speakers. Here are the possibilities:

1) Implement 5.2.2 and use the 4200 to drive your five floor level speakers (no surrounds backs) and two overhead speakers and forgo the external amp, or
2) Implement 7.2.2 and drive all seven of your floor level speakers with the 4200 and buy a low cost two channel external amp such as the AudioSouce AMP-100 to drive the two overhead speakers, or
3) Implement 5.2.4 (instead of 7.2.2) and use the Outlaw 5000 to drive your five floor level speakers and let the 4200 drive your four overhead speakers (yes, the 4200 internal amps can drive the Height2 speakers using the FW speaker posts if your Fronts are externally driven), or
4) Implement 7.2.2 and let the Outlaw 5000 drive the FL, C, FR, SL, SR and let the 4200 drive the two surround back speakers and the two overhead speakers, or
5) Implement 7.2.2 and only use 3/5 of the Outlaw 5000 channels for your FL, C, FR speakers and use the 4200 to drive the remaining four floor level and two overhead speakers , or
6) Implement 7.2.2 and pay the additional $400 and get an Outlaw 7125 seven channel amp to drive all seven of your floor level speakers and use the 4200 to drive your two overhead speakers, or
7) Implement 7.2.2, return the 4200 and buy a 6200 to drive your seven floor level and two overhead speakers and forego the external amp, or
8) Implement 5.2.4, return the 4200 and buy a 6200 to drive your five floor level and four overhead speakers and forgo the external amp, or
Wash, rinse, and repeat with the 6200 and an external amp for other scenarios such as 7.2.4.

I'm tired.

Just wanted to chime in on the Outlaw owner's thread. I've had a 7200 B Stock amp for a good number of years. No complaints. Dead silent, no humming ever. Only real issue is it does run pretty warm (about 110 or so) even at normal listening levels. It sits out in the open on a top shelf. I called Outlaw and they said I shouldn't really worry about it. The Harmon Kardon it replaced did not throw off any heat no matter how loud I played it. I did buy a small box fan. Problem solved. I sit about 15' away from it and hardly hear it. Very powerful and natural sounding. Adds no coloring at all to sound. Would definately buy from them again without hesitation.

Heat kills electronics. Continuously running hot like that may mean a shorter product life. The fan was a good idea. I have the 7700 and it's never all that warm, sounds great too.

Speaking of Outlaw, I just visited their Saloon and it's like a Ghost Town there.....no posts in over a week......Anyone know what's new as far as a processor from those guys?

Just received my outlaw 5000 amp. I can hear a tiny hiss sound from the tweeter around 3-4 inches away, is that normal? I unplug the rca input from outlaw and the hiss sound still there. Plug the outlaw directly in the outlet hiss sound is still there. Everything is plug in the belkin power conditioner. I dont hear the hiss sound in my seating area, im a bit ocd . Setup is ascend acoustic raal towers, horizon and paradigm surround 3, anthem mrx300 pre.

Thanks

This raises many more questions, so there's no answer to the "is that normal" question. Best you should call Outlaw and let them walks you through this. Might be normal, might not be.

With a hiss sound that's only detectable at 3-4 inches away, you are fine. Hopefully when you are unplugging your RCA's, everything is powered down though. I've got the Sierra 2 with the Raal tweeter, and they are sensitive and very detailed, as I'm sure you've experienced!

Not sure what kinda speakers you have, but on my RF7ii's horns I have always been able to hear a hiss right by them, and that has been with two different amps.

The 7700 was on sale for $1599 last week ($550 off). Unbelievable deal for a great amp. I paid full price in February. I hope some people took advantage of the deal.

7.2.4 Setup | Display: Panasonic TC-P65VT50 plasma | Processor: Anthem AVM60 | Amps: Outlaw 7700, Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 2 | Speakers: Paradigm Prestige (2) 95F's, 55C, (4) 15B's, (4) CI-Elite E65-R (Atmos) | Subs: (2) Rythmik F25's

I own a 7125. The only issue I have with Outlaw is that I'm on the east coast and any amp related issue has to be sent back to ATI in CA, which isn't so economical. Wish they had an in-house tech for the Atlantic side of the house! ;-)
