    I have got a 6.1 amp. I set up the single rear speaker and the sound was a bit thin, so I jumped another (identical) speaker off it and placed them about a metre apart.

    Now to me this sounds much better than just using the single speaker. The only way I can describe it, is that the sound is wider.

    The question is this - if I continue with this set-up will I damage any of my hardware? Either the speakers or the amp.

    Cheers fellas.

    Presumably you're using the 6th speaker in conjunction with another 5 (plus sub)?

    If the rear speakers are wired in series then it should be fine. Parallel may cause some problems though as it'll drive that channel very hard.

    Good to hear you're experimenting for better sound though :clap:

    surely as lower range denon amps give 2 sets of speaker terminals but only one amplifier shared. Isn't this the same thing really as wiring two speakers into the single set on a yamaha or sony with 6.1?
