hi Guys,


first off i am new here... thanks for the forum! i promise not to be a leech



i am configuring a custom home theatre for a client but it is not really my area... i do his IT work... so i have a situation that requires some expertise:


his living room and kitchen are adjacent and open to each other... and we just added 2 in-cealing speakers to the kitchen.

to illustrate everything i drew and labelled a diagram for you guys:



logically i would want to connect the kitchen speakers to FL and FR, correct?

but would they cancel out the front ones and ruin it for the 5.1 setup?

or shall i just keep them low and they will be fine?

please provide any insight you have. thanks!!!

No. You will utilize the "Zone 2" capability found in many recv'rs/avrs today. This might be a set of powered outs which would utilize the amp section of the avr. Some avr's have only a non powered out which would require an external amplifier. You would have to let us know which avr you are using to determine what your set up would require, but do not run four speakers off of the FR/FL outputs.

thanks mlowie...

i guess i should have said they are connected as zone2, through the pre-outs to a separate stereo amp. which would imply they are playing FL and FR i think...

and so i take it you agree that that is the right connection... but since the rooms are connected is that the best setup design wise?


thanks again
