I baught a HTIB surround system which is 5 speakers, bass, and a receiver/dvd player. It is basically last years model of this HTIB. I already had 2 larger old speakers of my dads that I have arranged to be the front left and right speakers. I then took the 2 front speakers that came with the HTIB and put them right beside and wired them to the center speaker. What I am hoping someone will know is, will the volume be the same with the 2 additional speakers? does the speaker amplify the signal or is a set wattage sent out from the receiver and it doesn't matter how many speakers are attached to that particular channel. I don't know if it means anything but the speakers are all attached to the bass and then a large serial cable attaches the bass to the receiver. How much does it cost for a doodad that measure the decibels coming out of your speakers?
