I have been connecting my Energy Encore speakers to my Onkyo Home Theater receiver (TX-DS676) in the traditional format. However, upon further research, I have learned that some folks are recommending the following configuration for movies and music: hook up the four satellites and the center channel to corresponding speaker posts on amplifier as normal. Use standard speaker wire to connect right High Level Input post on rear of subwoofer to FRONT RIGHT speaker post on amplifier. Connect left High Level Input post on rear of subwoofer to FRONT LEFT speaker post on amplifier. Do NOT use a subwoofer cable to connect the subwoofer to your amp. When hooked up correctly, you will have two sets of speaker wire running from each FRONT speaker post on your amp...one to a satellite and one to the subwoofer. Set front speakers to LARGE on your amplifier. Set amplifier to indicate "No Subwoofer." Am I not maximizing the performance of my speakers with my present configuration? Thanks to all.
