    I need to know if anyone has any idea how I can do this. I have Paradigm 90P monitors and an LCR450 in the front, and ADP 370s along the side for surrounds. I am running the DTR 6.3 Integra which has a back surround channel. I have three speakers that I would like to wire in to the back surround channel. The speakers are 8 ohm and my reveiver manual states that it can handle 6 to 16 ohms. Is there a way I can make this work? Possibly some kind of splitter or device that can do this.

    You can connect a pair in series (+ to -) then the amp across the pair, that will give you 16 ohms load. Three should work wired the same, but you might not have enough trim level to balance the levels with the rest of system.

    Now if all three are different type/brand speakers, now that might screw up the timbre-matching with the rest if you care about that.

    Hope this helps.
