I'm considering the following setup.


Let's assume that I will never use surround sound in 7 channel mode. I will ONLY have 5 speakers (2 front towers, 1 center, 2 rears) plus a seperately powered sub.


Separately, I'll have 2 outdoor patio speakers and 2 'other room' speakers. (They are represented by the blue and green circles).


Could I use 5 channels of the UPA-7 to power my 'surround sound' and the remaining 2 channels to power the other auxillary speakers? The way I'm thinking is that both pairs of speakers would run into a switch box that would be connected to the amp's remaining 2 channels. The speakers could either be on as individual pairs or simultaneously.


I know I may not be explaining this well or with the right terminology so please ask me any questions if I need to clarify or correct myself.

you do realize that the blue/green speakers will always play the same thing?

Yeah, I realize that. What I plan to do is have separate volume controls for the other speakers.


I guess my main question/concern was if I could treat 2 of the amp's channels as if they were a separate amp. Based on your response, it seems to not be a problem.
