Speaker B

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I just returned a Sony amp I purchased last week and exchanged it for the Pioneer VSX-42. The reason I exchanged the amp is because I want to listen to music through my exterior patio speakers via Speaker B. Speaker A will be used solely for the television. Unfortunately, I was told by the salesperson that the Sony had this option, but it wasn't the case. Anyway, I have my two exterior speakers ran into Speaker B but there is no sound. I am thinking this has to to with a setting. Can someone help me?

Also, I am having a difficult time understanding the "Surround Back" and "Height" setting. Perhaps someone can elaborate on these two settings.

Thanks,

Rob

Not familiar with the model, but am with the concept. The VSX-42 is a 7.1 AVR which means the AVR can power a 5.1 setup in the main zone plus 2 more speakers which can be used as either "Surround Back" (ie. rear speakers), "Front Height" (ie. speakers placed in the ceiling above the FL/FR speakers", or "Front B" (more often used when a second set of FL/FR speakers is used for music listening only, although can also be used to place a set of speakers in another room to play the same source as is selected in the main zone). There is likely a setting which allows you to select one of these three options (see Owner's manual).
