If you have a 7.2 receiver and 5.1 speakers, then you’re in luck! You can use these two devices together to create an amazing surround sound system that will blow your friends away when they come over for a party. This blog post is going to go through the steps necessary so that you can get everything connected correctly and enjoy great audio quality.
First, you’ll need to get the receiver and speakers connected. Follow these steps:
– Make sure that your power is turned on for both devices. -Plug in all of your speaker cables into their corresponding ports if needed. If not, skip this step. -Connect the subwoofer cable from the rear RCA inputs at the back of the receiver to an amplifier or powered subwoofer system with a dual input (one left channel and one right). The red audio signal should be plugged into “L” and white/yellow audio should go into “+”. You can then connect your amplified subwoofer to its own AC outlet near where it will be played so as not to have to run long cords across rooms in order to get power.
Next, you’ll want to adjust the volume levels for both your receiver and speakers in order to have a harmonious sound from all sides of the room. Your first step will be setting up an initial or default volume level on each device before tuning them accordingly with one another later:
– Turn down the master/headphones output knob at the top left side of your receiver so that it is not too loud when playing content without other sources turned on simultaneously (or risk hearing distortion). -Choose a speaker size by pressing the “Speaker Size” button found near the bottom center of the display. It should say either “Small”, “Middle”, or “Large”. Choose whichever best suits your home theatre setup.
– Press the “Volume Adjust” button found near the bottom right side of the display. This will select a volume level for each speaker size and adjust it to the same degree (i.e., both small speakers at 100% or middle/large at 50%).
– For Middle and Large Speakers: -Press Volume +/- buttons on the left, top, right, and bottom sides of your receiver until you reach the maximum desired output volume without distortion. -Determine if you would like to fine-tune any further by pressing Menu > Speaker Settings > Standard Setup > Speaker Reassignments; then press down arrow keys to highlight which channel is being adjusted (-LF,-RR,-RF,-LR) before adjusting using +/- buttons again as needed.
What Is The Difference Between 5.2 And 7.2 Receivers?
The number of speakers in a surround sound system can be defined by two factors: speaker size and the number of channels. A five-speaker configuration is typically referred to as “five-point one” or “five point one six,” while an eight-channel receiver would usually have seven channels for audio with a seventh channel dedicated to powering the subwoofer. Beyond that, manufacturers will use numbers like “seven twenties.” This means there are 20 total speakers (including front left, right, center, rears) in addition to four rear satellites which aren’t driven by any amplifier circuits on your receiver but rather powered passively from their own built-in amplifiers; this makes them more difficult to place around the room because they require power from the receiver.

Which Is Better: 5.1 Or 7.1 Surround Sound?
This is a difficult question to answer because the best option depends on your budget, what you want from your sound system, and the room layout. A traditional five-speaker setup has one subwoofer which can be either powered or passive; it also includes two front speakers for left and right channels as well as two rear speakers for height effects.
Seven channel surround systems have three additional outboard satellites positioned behind the listener that provide width and depth of field – this positions them at an angle relative to where listeners would typically sit in sitting rooms. It’s worth noting that while some receivers will come with both configurations pre-selected, others may require a firmware update before they are able to accommodate seven-channel setups without selecting between stereo or virtual surround modes (or high-quality virtual surround sound modes).
Which Surround Sound Mode Is Best?
Virtual Surround Sound – Virtual surround sound mimics the experience of front row concert seats with an array of speakers positioned around you instead of just one or two on either side as in typical stereo setups. It provides true-to-life 360° spatial awareness that engages your entire room but may overwhelm those sensitive to higher volumes due to its immersive nature (note that most TVs have built-in virtual surround features).
Can I Use A Receiver With Only Five Speakers?
Yes, you can use a receiver with only five speakers. You will need to have the two front-channel speakers and three surround sound speakers all hooked up to your receiver in order for it to work properly. The rear channels are not necessary but they do increase the quality of sound that is coming out from your TV or other devices by providing greater depth and dimensionality. You may also need an AV system amplifier if you plan on using more than four active (powered) loudspeakers at one time such as large home theatre setups or live concerts.
Can I Use A Seven-Channel Setup Without Selecting Between Stereo Or Virtual Surround Modes?
No, this would be impossible since any type of surround mode requires six speakers including left/right speaker channels, centre channel (front left and right), subwoofer channel, two surround speakers and one rear-channel.
