    Since currently I have only 5 speakers, Energy take-5, and an Energy sub, I wonder how I will set up the 3805 as a 5.1 audio system instead of 7.1.

    I've been reading the manual, and I find it a bit confusing if not a lot.

    Can someone explain it in plain English so that it does make sense? Thanks.

    Regards,

    Hiya Orestes,

    I don't have the 3805 but I guess it should all be the same...just don't connect the Surround Back (LR) channels and configure your 3805 as such in the setup menu.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards.

    OK let me see if I understand this. I connect my front L and R speaker. Then I connect the center speaker. After that, I see that the SURROUND section is divided into two "zones", A and B. Under A, I connect my "rear" speakers L and R, and leave everything else alone. Rigth?

    Then I go into the menus, and configure it with these connections. Right?

    Thanks.

    Yes, bro.

    Connect your sub thru RCA from sub woofer out and configure all channels to small(even when you have big floorstanders)

    I would further suggest an Ovation Avia DVD and Radioshack Sound Pressure Level to do your 5.1 calibaration. The dvd is very easy to use and self explainatory.

    After that just sit down and enjoy

    Regards.
