  1. System Setup and Connection
    I temporarily wired my front height speakers to my front L and R speakers. Will this damage them? I know this is not the correct way to wire them I am just doing it to use them while I save up for an amp. In order to correctly install 11 speakers I need the amp to run two of them (the heights)...

    Hey guys, Right now I have 4 UXL-18 subwoofers going to 2 EP4000's, one on each channel for 4ohms (they are 4ohm SVC woofers) wired in stereo. I would like to wire them up so I can get 2ohms per speaker in stereo mode but am severely confused on how to do this with the Behringer. Would the...

    Is there a way to wire 4 X 4 Ohm SVC Drivers and com out with a final Load 4 Ohms? This is not an option on the wiring diagrams. Could you wire some in parallel and some in series to come out with 4 Ohms? 4 x 4 Ohm SVC Drivers / Final Load 1 Ohm

    I'm looking for help to run the wiring from a receiver to the speakers. I've got 3 in ceiling speakers Paradigm CS60's (I know that's an odd number) that I'd like to wire into a Yamaha RX A810. Should 2 of them run in Series, and the other as a L or R independently? All separate? Throw out...

    I have read differing information on this topic but wanted to get some info from you guys on which is better to use for home theater. Series vs. Parallel wiring for some subs i'm looking into? I wanted to know what, if any, differences in performance either method would yield. Thanks

    Tomorrow I expect the receive the Chief RPAUW ceiling mount I ordered from B&H. My question is, I'd like to connect the projector (an Epson 3010) to a power outlet in the ceiling to avoid unsightly wires down the back wall. Is it better to put a box and outlet in the ceiling and plug in there...

    Okay, I am thinking of getting the pioneer vsx1121k but not set in stone yet so I am referencing the info from this reciever and I am guessing it is the same with most recievers that are bi-ampable. Now with wiring up for bi-amping the speaker, polk audio monitor 40 floor standing speakers, you...

    I'm looking for an enclosed wiring cabinet to put everything in, then I came up with this idea. I'm going to bolt a cabinet to the garage wall, having the hole in the back of cabinet will work well for all the wiring to go thru. For me this will be new construction, so having all the...
