I just got done reading about The Poor Man's Surround Sound Setup. I was curious if i hook it up in the same way, only connected to the rear speakers, will it create the same effect as a 7.1 receiver. If I'm not mistaken DDEX and DTSES are matrix encoded into the rear channels. So if I were to connect the + end from the right surround channel on the receiver to the + on the "new" back right speaker and run a line from the + on the surround left speaker to the + on the back left the connect the two negatives canceling out the in phase signals and allowing only the out-of-phase signals to create instant 7.1 surround sound. ugh....right? I need all the feedback i can get on this subject. I've been thinking about it for a while now (if you read my post about connecting a pro logic receiver to the surrounds). Thanks alot and all opinions are welcome .
