I posted this a couple of days ago in the Owners thread, but it seems to get little activity...


I have a VSX-33 that I got about a year ago. I have finally talked the wife into getting rid of our Bose Acoustimass system and here is what I will be running.


Fronts: Polk Monitor 70

Center: Polk CS2

Surround:polk Monitor 50


I also have 2 Definitive Technology AW 6500 outdoors.


If I am running the pre-out for Zone 2 (for the outdoors ) through a Jamo MPA-201, can I still utilize the rear surround channel to bi-amp the fronts?


If so, how do I cycle between the two, and can they run simultaneously?


Thanks,

New Guy





To clarify...will be going from amplified channels to power all indoor (utilizing rear surround channel to bi-amp the 70s) it will be set in MCACC as a 5 speaker system...not multi-zone.


I will then utilize the manual Zone 2 RCA connection (unamplified) to supply my outdoor speakers.


Can I?

That should work. Look at manual page 83. Go into settings/speaker settings/manual setup.

From there tell the receiver what signal each speaker post plays. The zone 2 preamp out

should be active when zone 2 is turned on. I suggest you get a subwoofer and forget about

bi-amping a Polk 70 tower instead.
