    just after a little advice.....

    i use a stereo amp for my fronts when listening to music and an AV amp for movies, etc
    i currently preout the fronts to the stereo amp but am looking at seperate runs from both amps....

    can i run speaker cables from the AV + stereo into the speakers without problem? (it won't create a loop or anything silly)

    obviously i won't play 2 sources at once!

    advice gladly received!!

    You are best off doing it low level or if you must do it at speaker level, use speakers B (if amp has facility) or prefeably, use a switchbox like QED.
    The Cheapest option would be banana sockets on cable's coming out of the amps and banana plugs on cable going to the speakers.
    Just label em and leave under amp.
    Voila :smoke: plug in av or hifi, only one at a time!
    And the banana sockets can't short the amps.

    Does your Hifi amp have a "main in"?
