hey people!, need a little help if you can,,, I have a jvc rx8010v receiver and am curious to see if it is possible to hook up an external amp to boost the wattage of all of the speaker I have(rear, center, front), another words, my old receiver had a tape monitor switch, in which the amp was able to hook up through, and add extra power to cd, dvd, ect., and boost all of the speakers including the surround, and I was able to tweak each one as needed through the reciever, I had the amp output, to the tape monitor which was able to stay on while functioning the other cd, dvd, ect. , on the new receiver I cant figure out how to use the amp as a general power booster but only to power a single component.. any help would be appreciated

You JVC doesn't appear to have pre-outs, so you can't use an external amp.

Just curious, the JVC already puts out 100 watts per channel. What speakers are you powering? Is your listening area that big?

To get a 3db increase you will need at least 200w per channel. Are you maxing out your current receiver? Can it not handle the stress and it is shutting down? Unless you are pushing things past their limits or you have extremely inefficient speakers, then adding an amp is a waste.

Note: adding an amp is not always a waste if you are going for pure sound quality and know what you are doing.
