    Here is my problem

    I have a 6.1 receiver (Onkyo 787) and I just bought an external amp (Onkyo M-282) to set up a 7.1 system. I also bought some Bass Shakers

    The reason I bought this amp is because in the auction add it said it was 2 ohm stable (at least I thought it did) and now when I received it there is no mention of 2 ohms in the book and no mention on onkyo's website either.

    My thoughts were seeing as the "rears" are mono I would run them off one side and run the bass shakers off the other side of the 2 channel amp.

    I thought I could send the sixth channel(REAR) out to one side of the m282 amp and then use a splitter off the lfe channel to the other side of the m282 amp. Again the reason I thought I could do this is because I thought the amp was 2 ohm stable.

    So is this posssible one side of the the external amp wired in parrellel for the rears and the other side run in series for the bass shakers. Anyone know if this can be done?

    I think I need some more expert advice.

    All the amp “cares” about is getting a correct load. It doesn’t matter how you accomplish it.
