Problem setting Marantz SR7009 for 7.2 + front b



I have Marantz SR7009 with
2xQacoustic 3050i
2xB&W 602 S3
2xB&W m1
1x B&W central speaker

I want to set them up in mode where I can hear only the Q acoustics, only the 602 s3, and all of them in surround modes. I tried the 7.1 + Front B setup, but the power of the speakers when I run just A speakers plugged in like front speakers, or just B speakers, plugged in front wide, is very weaker than when I run A+B together (30% power difference at least)

Can someone help me with advice on which sound/amp setting is best for my needs? I usually listen to music from Tidal HD or Vinyl, which I want to mix it up on the first or second speakers, and watch movies or play PS5 on all speakers. I need a setup where I will be sure that I am not doing something wrong like now, where I am losing power and maybe quality.

Thank you in advance!
