    The system is optimized for 5.1 (6.1 in the case of EX/ES). Proper placement of the 5.1 system will sound much better than doubling up of the speakers. Especially the subwoofer, which can lead to huge nulls in the sound due to the relatively long wavelengths of low frequency sound causing cacellations. In general, having more does not equate with having better.

    Yes and in addition both units have different processors.. just like computers. You'll find they don't process the sound at the same rate causing all sorts of unwanted results. Stick with one good system with 5 speakers.
