I have 2 front free standing 3 way floor speakers. 100w 8ohm
i have a center speaker 3 way 100w 8ohm
i have 6 ceiling 3 way speakers 100w 8ohm each.
i am confused on what receiver i need to drive this setup.
I want ATMOS system.
I have looked into may receivers that are capable of doing so but do i need 7.1.4 or 9.2.4...
I want the front 2 free standing speakers as my front Left and Right and center speaker.
the 2 pair of ceiling speakers to be ATMOS surround and (LAST) 1 pair of ceiling speaker to be rear/back speakers.
What reciever type will handle something like this.
Also i see 7.2 receivers that have enough speaker +- ports to runs all 9 speaker plus 2 subs but 7 are zone 1 and 2 are zone 2. can zone 1 and 2 put together can make it into a 9.2.4 atmos system?
I know i maybe wrong on many accounts please guide me through this process.
I really appreciate all the help .... Thank you in advance
With that many speakers, I believe you should look for a receiver that is a 9 channel and can do 5.1.4.
