So i'm looking at 7.1 and 9.1(2) receivers currently. The jump in price from for an example a pioneer 1122 to a Onkyo NR-1009 is around double the cost.


I am planning on running 9 speakers,


1 ccenter

2 fronts

4 in the middle above seating area downward firing ( ceiling mounted), 2 slightly in front of seats and 2 slightly behing

2 rears

1 sub


If I do this setup, if i use a 7.1 receiver, can i splice the wire for the side speakers the (4)? basically the 2 left sides are the same line and the 2 right sides are the same.


Or should i splurge for the 9.2 receiver?



This is for a somewhat theater room.


thanks!

Not familiar with other brand 9.1 AVRs, but on the Denon side, there are only a few AVRs (upper level only) that support Surround A and Surround B speaker setups, as even the 9.1 AVR (4311CI) will only support a single set of "side" surround speakers which would still require you to wire 2 sets in parallel/series.
