How to make a 7.1 surround sound system Answered

Hello, I'm just wondering is a 7.1 speaker set just the same as 2 speakers only with a 7.1 capable receiver?


wow i also want to make this sound system

If you want a 7.1 souround sound system then go buy a 71. souround sound reciver.

7.1 receiver can support 7 regular speakers and a sub woofer. When placed in the right possitions around the room you get full 7.1 surround sound. If you only connect a pair of speakers to the unit you'll only get your basic stereo sound.

Yea but I'm just wondering are homebuilt stereo speakers same as the 7 speakers used in a 7.1 setup? Luke

A speak is a speak as long as it has the same impedance as the receiver requires and can handle the amps the receiver puts out. So if your speaker isn't 4 Ohms or 8 Ohms and can't handle the power i wouldn't use them. You could damage the receiver.
