How to use 7.1 HT for 2 rooms ?

I have recently bought a 7.1 HTS . I want to use only 5.1 in the main room and put 2 speakers in another room. My question is which 2 speakers should I use for the other room ? The ones meant for the side or the rear ones ? Also if I play my HT in 7.1 mode with only 5.1 speakers, will it cause a problem ? Thanks in advance

Set it at 7.1 and just take the rear speakers in the other room with enough speaker wire 16G preferred and set your AUDIO out put to 7.1 all channel stereo only catch is that you won't be able to get a good sound in the second room in any other audio format good luck my friend

You might want to take a look at your workmanship and back it off or just disconnect the speakers to see if it is the cause.

SOURCE: I have the Onkyo HT-S5100, the 5 speaker are set

also, you might have to search through the menu of the receiver, and set the surround back speakers to be zone 2 instead of using the 7.1 configuration that is probably default.

i think zone 2 will only play sources that are hooked up with analog connects, ie. red/white cables. try using the radio to see if it works. you might have to hook up your cable/sat box, cd player, dvd player, whatever you have that you want to listen to with both digital and analog cables to get everything to work right.

Do you mean Adcom? That detail matters.

That would mean you're trying to run two rooms with paired mono speakers and a different channel in each room. MMmm, okay.

It's a 2-channel power amp and it isn't really designed for the probable very low imedance you're providing with paired speakers on each terminal. And it has no ability to turn either channel on or off short of denying it a program input on either channel.

Perhaps if you ran one speaker from each channel into each room (impedance permitting), you would have two rooms with traditional 2-channel audio.

My subwoofer doesn't seem loud enough. I have it set to 80%. Is there other settings that might solve this problem?


Bas response is highly dependent on room boundaries, speaker placement and relative listening position.

Page 13
"Place the subwoofer at the corner of the

room. Otherwise, keep it at least one
meter away from the TV."

You might experiment with moving the sub around.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)


Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!
