Interesting. Why don't you think a amplifier wouldn't deliver equal distribution to the connected channels?
Simply because real-world signals never provide full drive simultaneously on all channels.

Re: Can I connect a

Kal is talking about the distribution of sound in actual program material. His points assume Ohm's law, and he is very well versed in basic electronics, I assure you, Tom. The ACTUAL use of power is never evenly distributed unless one is driving everything as mono at the same levels, or in test conditions.

He would not begin to disagree with Ohm's law, but it is not what he was talking about at all.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

I see. Just wish he'd elaborate more on how nothing can be fully driven. Should of stated I was discussing it under the AVR setting at All Stereo or Full Mono.

Could you please answer the question I started the thread about? How do I connect the JVC to the Onkyo? Appreciate any assistance as always

Re: Can I connect a

Each channel of the power amp section has (or should have) the same gain and deliver the same output voltage driven by the same input voltage. Your Onkyo receiver has pre-outs. If you want to verify that the input voltage to each channel of the power amp section is not equal all the time and for each channel as Kal is saying, measure the voltage at each of the pre-outs of your receiver under a variety of scenarios. You will see that the 3 front channels are getting most if it, peak and average. If pre-out voltages are different, so will be the outputs (constant amplifier gain). BTW, if you are building bigger surrounds, they will likely be more efficient than the smaller ones they are replacing. They should consume less power for the same output level.

Thanks Kal.

To clarify by "appropriate preouts" you mean the preouts of the speakers I want to powere? e.g. FL & FR. Reason I'm being too thorough & hate to admit yet honesty always works best, is because I blew an AVR when I was trying the different brands when I first got my system by a rookie/dumb move

Should have no relationship to the chosen channel unless you connected a subwoofer output to a wimpy speaker.

Kal, you the man.

May I make donation that would go only to you? PM me if you do reply. That aspect shouldn't be on open threads in my opinion. Either way is cool.

Sigh. I tried to bi-amp a rear surround with another amp I had with the AVR off but not even unplugged.
Yes, in that instance, idiot = Me
Was week 2 into home audio..... doesn't matter, dumb mistake. Live and learn. Worry about the things you can control. After I fried her, couldn't control a thing.

Kal, can I make donation that would go directly to you? PM me if you reply regarding $
