    i would like to know how to power a set of 7 speakers with one of two amps. one amp is the pioneer 56txi receiver (110x7), the other is a similar model. maybe i could just run two sets of speaker wire to each speaker. i think i heard that thats a bad idea though. because if both receivers were on at the same time for some stupid reason, things would get damaged. maybe what i need is a 7 channel A/B switch. preferably IR controllable. i looked at xantech and speakercraft. i dont think that either company has what im looking for...

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Jared

    I've used a 6 channel a/b switch. I powered them with a pioneer 1014 tx or something. I used the front on A and the rear channels on B. You could then also then use the side surround channels to power the most poer hungary zone or fartheset run for all 7. that would be 3 pairs/ 1 input and one input for one output. I think it was an OMAGE brand speaker selector.
