    Can anyone tell me how to connect two sets of Mission FS2AV speakers to a Denon 3802 amplifier. On Missions website, is says for the ultimate cinema set up, connect two sets. Has anyone done this, and if so is it worth it?

    Thanks for any help:confused: :confused: :confused:

    I assume you'd link some of the panels together, doubling up say all the front speakers... then depending on what you want to do, either go for 2 rear centre speakers, or double up the normal rears.

    there's a phono connection on the sub to link onto a 2nd sub.

    The only reason why I'd suspect anyone would want to combine 2 FS2AV's together, is if they had a large living-room.

    Doubling up on an FS2 should give you 150W per speaker as opposed to 75W per FS2 - Isn't this too much for the Denon 3802 to handle, as the 3802's maximum power output is 105w per channel?

    According to some of the stuff I've read you link the two subs via the Sub out/in sockets on the sub itself. Not sure how this will distibute the sound though.

    I thought about this once and came up with this plan, but not sure if its the best way to go (sounds like a fine plan to me though)

    Use both umbilical cords and connect them up in the following way

    1st Sub
    Front Left (2 panels)
    Front Right (2 panels)
    Front Centre
    ignore the rears

    2nd Sub
    Surround Left (2 panels)
    Surround Right (2 panels)
    Rear Centre
    ignore the fronts

    As you will only have 1 rear speaker connect this to the surround back LEFT speaker terminal.

    Havn't tried if of course (dont have the cash for a second set), but if anyone out there does it would be good to find out if it works.

    So you think this may be too much for a 9ft by 7ft bedroom, with a 36" screen in?

    yes.

    a bit of overkill perhaps.

    mine are in my living room 23ft by 13ft and I've seen a single pair demoed in a large demo room approx 25 x 40ft.

    one pair will do fine.
