Re: General Home Theater questions

Oh, sorry i didn't answer the wiring q.


With all of the wires in one place and using the Onkyo AVR - after connecting the patio/bed speakers to Zone 2a, i would connect whichever is closer to the TV for zone2b height sound.



I believe (you will have to verify) when playing theater programs using the Atmos setting the zone 2b "height" speakers will convert your (future) 7.2 speaker array to a 9.2 (or 9.1 with one sub). Also using (Audyssey NOT in this Onkyo) to balance speaker output to balance for 9.2 speaker array may work to some degree. Not sure but i would think the zone 2b would function normally with 7.2 or less programing - you would have to check the manual for specifics.
The manual is available for download on linE


Don't forget - Enjoy

Re: General Home Theater questions

Advertisements. You could learn much from simple ads and ads can help with developing research questions. When a question is beyond you expretise there are plenty of sound and video reproduction geeks eager to describe their interpretation of the facts on forums like HTS. But the greatest teacher of all, bar none, is..., time.



Like everything else in life: the more time you invest the greater your level of expertise.


Another great place to gather info is your local Boutique AV Retailer and their showrooms/soundrooms/theaters



Most importantly, take a deep breath and enjoy the ride.
