From 5.1 to 7.1
I'm speculating a little bit here. Need to plan some purchases but don't have the room available yet for experiments. Maybe you guys can help me.
I have a 5.1 speaker set that I'll probaby configure at an 80Hz crossover frequency. I want to make it a 7.1 set. I have an extra pair of speakers with a similar frequency range as my current surrounds, but from a different brand. Should I put the different ones in the surround or in the surround back channels, does it matter at all?
Now, those extra speakers are a little bulkier than I'd like. I do have another pair of smaller speakers with a much better HAF (H = myself!) and WAF, but they don't have the same frequency range - they start at 140Hz. Does it matter now which channels I hook them up to? (I'd rather put them in the surround back for *AF reasons...)
Extra question - in the previous case, we'll lose some content between 80 and 140Hz in the surround or surround back channels, how significant is that in your opinion?
Thanks in advance,
