Yesterday I purchased the Kenwood HTB-504 HTIB (I've seen a lot of discussion about this product on the board and people looking for it - Sears is closing them out for $430, if you store is out of them, you can order online and have them ship it to your nearest location). I am relatively new to home theater and have a question regarding speaker set-up. I am currently running a pair of Pioneer S-H452F-K for the front speakers. I was going to use the front speakers that came with the HTB-504 for my surround, but they are a little too big to put on my stands. My question is, can I connect the Kenwood fronts to the B speaker output (system has A/B switching) and if so, where should I place them, in front of the listener or behind the listener? If I do put them behind the listener, is this going to screw up the 5.1 sound I am trying to acheive? Also, is connecting the extra speakers going to push the amp too hard, and will I have loss of sound to the other speakers? Another thing, I purchased RCA Digital Audio Cable (gold plated) for the digital connection between my DVD and receiver. Is this the correct cable to use, or do I need cable that specifically says coaxial? When I play a DVD with DTS or Dolby Digital, the respective lights show on the receiver, so it seems to be working. One more question in this already too long post...how much of a difference will it make upgrading to a $50 Monster Cable subwoofer cable? I am currently using the cable that came with the sub. Thanks in adavnce for any help.
