    Rear Speaker Question
    I have two small rear speakers which I'm about to replace, is it possible to connect them together to be used as a rear centre?

    thanks

    Yes, you can use them as the center rear.
    But when you say connect them together, do you mean on the same speaker out channel on the amp?
    If so the amp has to be able to drive two speakers at once on one channel, that might be a problem, especially if the speakers are 4ohm.
    What amp do you have?
    I have two surroun back speakers, but my amp has two channels of amp to drve them.

    I might be wrong but as long as they're connected in series you should be Ok, two 4ohm speakers connected as such producing an 8ohm load.

    Nobber ... you really shouldn't post the same question in two forums ... I've answered in the Amplifiers forum for you.

    If you post in the wrong forum ... correct ettiquette would be to delete the thread ... if you goto EDIT on your post there is a button at the top allowing you to delete.

    Anyway ... no harm done but just for reference for the future - stops you getting shouted at by the Mods ;)
