Well to get the full effect of 5.1 surround you will need 2 front speakers, 1 subwoofer, and 2 rear speakers. Personally I used 2 tower speakers, 2 rear speakers and a subwoofer. Match the speakers with the RMS wattage of your Receiver. (100x5) or roughly 50 watts per speaker. Yamaha, KLH, Philips are pretty good speakers.

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...


The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

How to create surround effect on cds/dvds which are not recorded on surround technology on home theatre dav dz 777


There is no way to do this in a controlled manner without re-mastering the disc, an unrealistic option.

However, there is a very simple way to extract the out-of-phase portion of a stereo recording, which can yield a quasi-surround sound effect.

To get this effect, connect an additional rear speaker to the positive ( + ) connection of the right speaker output and the negative ( - ) connection of the left speaker output.

Please keep in mind that this only works with a stereophonic (not mono) source and is fairly subtle.

Make sure the speaker you use is at least 8 ohms.

This is an old trick that pre-dates surround sound and works with music CD's too.

This set-up will probably degrade the sound of a true Surround-Sound recording so consider wiring a simple switch to disconnect the additional rear speaker when not in use.

Hope this helps.

Considering you only have 3 speakers, I would think you would be further ahead by purchasing an entirely new system.

This article explains the differences between Dolby 5.1 and Dolby 7.1 surround sound:

In terms of brands, I'd recommend finding a complete set up that's in the price range that you would like to spend.

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound


Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
