But if everything plays fine now there is no reason to get any of those amps you linked.
(And the sub powers itself, if just gets a low signal)
The thing is that I need an amp or two because my 4400 has 9 channels and requires an amp to run 11. Then I also have the 2 speakers in my kitchen. I am asking for the best route possible to get these all working. As mentioned, I have GC from Amazon, hence why I posted those links.
I would def use the cheaper amp for the surround speakers.
Seeing what equipment I have, how would I be able to get these to work without spending thousands.

I would only look for *quality* external amplifiers when you have to drive speakers A - that are difficult loads, low impedance, harsh phase angle or B - to a higher volume level.
I would stay away from cheap zone amplifiers like that Russound amp, and AVR amps as they will sound the same at best, but much more likely, worse.
Enjoy your speakers. And tell your friends to use some common sense lol.
My friends are not very bright...LOL.. I guess neither am I if I listen to them.
Also, with regards to the SUB, I assume a SUB crawl will be needed to see where the best position would be for it?
Thank you all again for your help.
