    Is there any way to add two additional speakers to a 5.1 reciver and it sound right? what i am looking for is center front, mid and surround rear speakers much like in thx or 7.1. Is this possible and will it sound right? I am building a ht room right now and am currently done with the framing about to go into the wiring part so i want to make sure that there is nothing i miss.

    Theoretically yes, practically no. What you would need is a post processor to take the back two channels from 5.1 and matrix them to 7.1. This would require an additional component and is susceptible to many difficulties, you would be better off upgrading your receiver.
