    I seem to recall reading that you can wire a centre channel speaker for a quasi 6.1 effect on a 5.1 system. Anyone know if this is true? How do you wire that?

    yes you can, but im sot sure how it will affect your amp/receiver.

    wire the center rear with the positive leads from your
    l/r rears. this will basically play both signals thru one speaker

    No! By doing this you will be getting the OUT-OF-PHASE info from the 5.1 surrounds. EX/ES rear center is the MONO IN-PHASE info from the 5.1 surrounds as well as removing the Mono In-Phase info from the Surround L/R. What you need is a Dolby Prologic receiver's front channel decoding to run the three surround channels or a EX/ES receiver.

    Stasulos - to ge the desired effect [from what I suggested], you must use both positive feeds. Ive used this method for a single outside speaker.

    Wes - So they would need a DLP decoder for just the rears then they could theoretically accomplish this feat?

    Will - ...huh?
