Only if I can stay inside the lines.
Now, a few more questions. Others have suggested that I put in 9 speakers and have a 2nd zone on the rear wall. When I listen to music, is it going to matter that the music is coming from 25 to 30 feet away? I'd rather use the 2nd zone for my deck.
Use the second zone for your deck, and you can always run all channels in stereo for music for parties.
I've been looking at an Integra DTR 30.3 or 40.3 and the bronze series speakers (my budget isn't as large as I would like it to be), will that receiver drive those speakers effectively?
That receiver is a good match.
When do you recommend a rack amp vs. a plate amp on the sub?
If you have room in your rack for the amp, and don't mind spending $250 more, you can opt for the RackAmp. I have the built-in amps, and there's no difference. Until further notice, there ARE no RackAmp 1000 s for the Gold and Platinum DSP Subs; only the built-in amps.
Bottom line, it makes little or no difference.
