Was there supposed to be a link to an external amp somewhere in there? The MRX is an avr like your PIO, so not much difference, you would need an external 3ch. amp to do as you are suggesting.

Yup, I did order the Anthem MRX500. I will give this a shot as JohnK said. However, I am thinking I want a 3 ch or three mono amps for my front three.

I just want more gas in the tank and all reviews and reading I do, everyone says how much better is sounds with an external amp running the fronts.
