    Please could anyone advise?

    I have a Pioneer 811VSX Amp and the Mission FS2 speaker package. Now I was thinking about adding a sixth speaker and I was wondering, with the Mission speakers all going back to the sub and then one lead going from the sub to the Amp, would I just be able to plug the sixth speaker directly into the Amp or will I have to unplug the speakers from the sub and run they to the Amp? and if I didn't plug the one spearker directly into the Amp would it work correctly?

    Many Thanks :)

    Sarge,

    As it's you I followed the links and read the article from Mission's design director. It suggests that the best way to obtain the extended rears is to buy an extra pair of flat panel speakers and another sub woofer and connect up via the sub as usual.

    Thanks Ian you're a love :kisses:

    So I might as well just buy another Mission set and keep the other 3 speakers as spares then.

    You don't have to as you can buy a stereo version which is two speakers and a sub.

    Or double up the front panels with a second 5 channel set (four at the rear, 3x2 at the front). Costly but probably well worth it.

    If you do get the stereo set, double up the front centre- no panels wasted.

    I think it means they'll be better at handling more power - someone correct me if I wrong.

    I don't think you'd get the FS2-A (2 spkr+sub) for less than £300 (QED is £311 from memory), whereas you can go the full hog and get the FS2-AV (5 + sub) for just £350 now. You'd be able to buy the connecting pieces for doubling up the speakers pretty cheaply from Mission, i would imagine.

    I would love to get another set - especially at that price - but wife isn't going to wear it.

    BTW Sgt.Colon - saw your other comments in the poll thread. I think Mission say to set the amp to large for all speakers, as the sub then handles the crossover at the right level for the panels.

    Andy
