I'm using all speakers including 2 - 12" sub woofers. My rear speakers(6&7) aren't being recognized by the receiver. I'm running 12awg quality wire somewhere between 35' - 40' to each speaker. Are the wires too long? Am I using up so much power that the receiver doesn't have the power to recognize them(too long of wire)? Or what is the problem?
I can cut them maybe another 3-4' if that will do it. Otherwise do I need a booster?
2) I plan to get an Emotiva amplifier. My fronts are Martin Logan ESL speakers(new). My surrounds & rears are Paradigm. What do I want to amplify, all 7 channels? If no, will the receiver put out power to the speakers that are not amplified?
Will the sub woofers work the same way with the Emotiva 7ch amplifier?
Which Emotiva amp would you recommend? I don't need one with an HDMi switcher.
Will the sub woofers work the same way as without the amp?
What will I be able to do with my new iPad when I get it with the sr5007?
Thanks for reading. If you can help, thanks again.
1. The speaker wire length isn't the problem. Are test tones going to the speakers when you run Audyssey setup?
2. Suggest using the AVR without the amp first, then you can decide if you want a 2CH, 3CH, or 5CH amp, with the AVR powering the remaining speakers.
