Hi all, I have a question abut bi-amping speakers.
I have read in some manuals, that I can use channel 6 and 7 if not in use to bi-amp the main speakers.
What that means to me is that I will take speaker cable from the receiver's rear channels (6, and 7) to the dual connectors in the back on the main speakers.
If this was to be done using an amp I guess I will interconnect the rear channels from the receiver to the 6, 7 channels on the amplifier and from the speaker terminal in the amp to the main speakers.
I hope that I have above info right?.
Finally the question: I have also read that there is no need to amplify the 4, 5, 6, and 7’s (surround and rear surround) channels since they actually contain small amount of sound compared to the main and center channels, which I agree since I have a 5.1 setup.
If this is right, wouldn’t it be that if you use the 6, and 7 channels out of the receiver, then the results would be rear surround signal going to your mains which in my mind would be: 1 the wrong information going to the wrong speaker, 2 very small amount of sound, (again rear surround signal) going to your mains which will actually make the sound not as good as just simple not using the bi-amp capability.
What am I missing where am I going wrong with my logic…
