I would like to know how Mr.Dek Spoon connected those 17 speakers to the 8801 processor.
I am presently building a theatre room and would like to go just a little further. I would like to have L/R, main, 2 centre, 4 front heights, 6 surround, 2 rear height, 1 v.o.g. for aura 3d,and 4 ceiling for dolby atmos, although I would love to put six pieces in the ceiling.
Marantz av 8802a processor.
Too many sleepless nights trying to figure this out.ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
Assuming you arent trolling.....
You need to look at pro speaker matrixing options. The 8802 is only 13.2 channel capable. The only option I see is to connect some channels in parallel, and splitting the signal with a y-style adapter.
This system sounds a little ridiculous. Best of luck to you. Why dont you ask Mr. Dek Spoon how he did it?
I am hoping Mr. Dek Spoon would reply. I have a 7 channel amp. which is biwire, I am not sure if I can split the channels on this particular amp. Then there is a 5 channel, and three 2 channels, of which I am hoping to use just one of the 2 channel amp for the main.
Thanks for the info.
Looks like that dude posted exactly twice, so I wouldn't expect a reply. In any case, his system wasn't all that outlandish; he just had an extra pair of surrounds (which he could have been running as heights or wides, can't tell from the pics). What you are proposing is much more grand--I'd guess you'll need to be splitting your inputs into multiple amps somehow (and I'm not sure how you might do that without losing signal from your preamps).
EDIT: Also, he didn't have 17 speakers connected to his preamp--a lot of those are outdoor speakers, most likely on a separate system or at least in a separate zone. There are only 9 indoor speakers+2 subs. (Only!)
I thought he was running all of the speakers from the 8801
Thanks for the reply.
