    Well I just got a Denon 2802 and I want to set up 6.1.
    It only has one amplified channel for rear surround.
    If I set a pair of surrounds up do I connect them as follows:
    Bring the positive side of the wire coming from the amp to the first positive terminal on the left speaker.
    Then connect a wire from the negative on the left speaker to the positive on the right speaker.
    Then connect the negative side of the wire coming from the amp to the negative on the right speaker.
    This would put the pair in series, correct?

    If so, this doubles the resistance on the rear surround channel, correct?

    Will this strain the amp on that rear surround channel?

    I ask because I am running dipole surrounds and they show a direction on the back for placement aiming one side towards the front.

    So since I want to set up another pair for the rear I figured I would point the suggested direction of each outwards from the pair.

    Does this matter? Can I just mount the one speaker and not worry about it, or will it sound stronger to one side of the room if I just mount the single dipole surround.

    Note: these are Boston Acoustic VRS Micro dipole surround speakers.

    Yes I do have them already and they are the same as my side dipoles. Great, I will go ahead and mount them as I described. Thanks for the quick answer.
