There's been alot of talk about rears and dipoles and also connecting more than one speaker to the output. I was wondering, after a trip to the cinema lately, is it possible to connect 2/3 speakers onto each rear speaker terminal? in cinemas they have alot of side speakers, how do they do it?

It's certainly possible, although whether it's advisable is down to many factors not least the quality of the amp,the impedance of the speakers and how they are connected.

Multi amps or multi channel amps.

so in theory in a 5.1 system you could make a cable that feeds each rear signal into 3 poweramps giving you 6 rears. :D
Whether its advisable I agree is another thing:devil:

As far as i know, it would not be advisable. I really doubt you would gain from it. My understanding is that, if you have speakers relatively close playing the same ting, you will et nasty interference effects. This is certainly the case when considering using 2 centre channels.

Eric will know the answer! :D
