The 4520 is a pretty powerful receiver and you are only using 5 of its 9 amps. With only 5ch driven it should be able to easily put out 120+ w/ch (and since all channels aren't driven constantly with...

It wouldn't be that hard, and honestly you might not even need another amp if you wire them in series to present a light load to the 5200.

If you decided to be safe and use an external amp,...

I'm confused -- you can use CB-10's for surrounds but the RC-10's are too big? They are basically the same size.

Just to be clear -- there is NO crossover for LFE. LFE is a dedicated channel (the "point 1" in 5.1 or 7.1 content) and always goes directly to the subwoofer. There is an LFE LPF (lo-pass filter)...
