Today I was treated to an interesting stereo presentation. The neighbors on either side of me had construction projects going that sounded like a battle of the bands.

You should`ve put the race on and turned the volume up, that would`ve drowned that right out

At the expense of my eardrums, windows, and sanity. Earplugs are cheaper. Besides, the "concert" didn't last long and I don't expect a return engagement anytime soon.

I have a 9.2 system for my home theater using a yamerhamer a/v, Infinity sats and Acoustic Audio subs. My stereo system is old Phase Linear with Speaker Lab 7's and a set of Corner Horn K's with a Polk sub, it's setup with the Hafler effect, old school quad. My poor PC has a old set of Monsoon ribbons with sub for 2.1.

Madcratebuilder, Sounds like a sweet old school rig. My main rig is Lexicon and Adcom tri-amped with my original prized AR9's and Paradigm's for surround and center. I had been running a Paradigm powered sub but after properly bi-amping the AR9's I pulled it out as with (4) 12" woofers properly powered and equalized there was zero need sonically.
These speakers date back to late 70's and still amaze today even if they are a bit beamy.

Could you provide a map of the speaker placement for 9.2? After 15 minutes (and a lot of blue air) of searching on two different search engines, I found nothing on 9.2 (and the *&^%$#@! search engines gave me results for every^%$#@!thing else, even after I tried excluding them). I'm guessing it's the same as 7.1 except there are two sets of side speakers instead of one and there are two subs but I'm hazy on the placement of the subs. What equipment would you use to drive all those speakers and what would you use for a source of 9.2?

OK here are my speakers for 2.0, no need for a subwoofer in this case. These speakers are 30 years old and I won't part with them at any price. B&W DM6 https://www.google.com/search?q=B%26W+DM6&client=firefox-a&hs=4OY&rls=org.mozilla:en-USfficial&channel=np&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=esOLUr63IsOdyQGw1IG4CA&ved=0CD4QsAQ&biw=18 76&bih=912&dpr=0.9

Here are mine with a pair of Polks used as a center channel for 5.1. The amp has 2 x 100w center channels so I use them both, no problem with dialogue here.

And yes the TV and HI Fi is just there to display the collection of furry friends on. Note the Flag of the Continental Congress, the 1St Flag Of the Grand Union the predecessor of the Stars and Stripes flag.

Windows of the glazed kind are probably cheaper that Windows of the M$ kind except for labour to reinstall the windows.....reminds me of this song....

I would love to hear those AR's, bi-amping is something I have always wanted to try out. I don't listen to my stereo system as much as I would like anymore. Mostly the HT and movies I installed one of those "thumpers" in my recliner, the thing really changes the movie experience.

7.1 would be the common 3 front, 2 side and 2 rear with a single sub. 7.2 adds a second sub. The 9.2 adds 2 speakers to the front, you place them higher and further apart than the L & R mains. This is a funtion of my Yamaha RX-Z9 9.1 a/v receiver.

These 2 speakers are normally the same as your side speakers. They add to the spacial experience giving you more overhead sound. Most of the time you don't hear anything from them. Watching a movie with aircraft scenes, they add to the experience. Birds chirping in a tree, things like that. They shine with the movie "Master and Commander" the sounds of the ship really come alive.

I haven't looked at new A/V stuff in some time. I would think there are affordable A/V receivers available now with 9.1. I've played with many different speaker brands, I was buying and selling 1 or 2 sets a month on evilbay. Did a lot of different arrangements and I think the best sound for the dollar is adding a second sub woofer. The subs do not need to be high dollar, you can get great sound for under $500 a pair or less...sound that well move you. I have a 65" 3D Pany and my in home movie experience is better than any thing I have ever experienced. Primarily from enhanced sound, coming from 360 degrees. If you ever get the chance, try out a pair of Infinity Quadrapoles. IMHO the are the best rear channel speaker you can get at any price. They show up on evilbay sometimes, and can be priced right.
