It's all good man. It's all in the communication. Several times you said you were running a 5.1 with wides. That's just not the way two other members and myself understand it to be. IF you were to say you were running a 7.1 with wides....BINGO, there's no mistaking it. Your statements just got more and more confusing especially when you posted this," It is configured for 5.2 with two wides now, but it is not considered a true 7.2 system though. To have a true 7.2 system, you need to have 7 surround speakers (front left, front right, center, rear left, rear right, surround back left, surround back right and two subs)."
That was in post 5570
And your statement here is incorrect, once you have your basic 5.1, you can add either Height
or Back surround
. Any of the three does constitute a 7.1, or .2 with an additional sub. In a 7.1, there are only 4 surround speakers, the L/C/R speakers are not considered surround, they are considered the Front Stage, or Front Three.
So just a heads up, when you say that you're running a 5.1 using wides, you're just going to confuse the crap out of people because that's not what it is, it's a 7.1 with wides. Anyway, this has been a lot of fun, please forgive me if I don't reply anymore in this thread, I just learned that good communication is highly overrated
