    No, you can use any receiver, even an old Dolby one, You don't need an amp. Connect to the pre-out on the 2802

    You don't need an extra amp. You can wire the speakers in series on the 2802 with no problems.

    Any amp or receiver would do by using the pre-outs on the 2802. But if you haven't purchased the 2802 yet, you could always buy the 3802 for $699 at 6ave.com and then wouldn't have to worry about buying any more amps since the 3802 has 7 channels of amplification.

    Felix, you don't need to use an extra amp or receiver. You can simply wire the speakers in series or you can wire them in parallel too. It'll just present a lower resistance to the rear channel amp and make it work a little harder but if you don't listen at ear splitting levels, it'll probably be fine. If you're the cautious type, then just wire them in series to be on the safe side.

    cheers,

    what is the meaning of wiring the speakers in series? sorry i am a newbie.

    i already have the denon. i chose it because i had a plan to upgrade to 7 channel amp, but at this point i dont have money yet.

    thanks for the response.

    felix,

    just connect your speakers to the amp as follows:



    AMP(+) to BACKSPEAKER 1(+)
    BACKSPEAKER 1(-) to BACKSPEAKER 2(+)
    BACKSPEAKER 2(-) to AMP(-)



    regards, holger

    Holger's directions are for a "series" configuration.

    Parallel is:

    (2) wires connected to the Amp + terminal, one of them wires to each EX/ES speaker + terminal.

    (2) wires connected to the Amp - terminal, one of them wires to each EX/ES speaker - terminal.
