Okay, I know I'm not half as into this as most of you guys are. I am almost finished with my basement theater, and will be buying a new Yamaha 980W 7.1 Receiver. I have pre-wired for 9.1 (2 Frt, 1 Cntr, 2 SR, 2 SL and 2 Rear.) which was probably over-kill, but I have a couple of questions. A) Alot of surround sound speakers I am finding (of the ones I can afford) are around 60W max input. I am concerned about plugging 110 watts into these. But I can't seem to find any that are over 100W and still ceiling mountable. Will I be okay if I keep the volume at a reasonable level, or should I find 110W speakers? Or a crossover? B) Until I can afford a 9.1 Amp, or until they actually start filming in it, can I run both right and both left surrounds into the same channel in the back of the receiver? Same with the rear, can I give the two rear speakers the same signal as the other? I want to utilize my wiring if I can, but don't want to buy 9 speakers, when only 7 will work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!
