    Please Help Im New

    ok so i have a JVC KD-6101
    at the moment i am running the front mids and rear mids of the deck but plan to get a 4 channel amp to run them

    now heres the question...
    1 . how do you run a centre channel ...as theres no centre speaker cable ??
    2 . do you have to use the digital out into a equailiser or amp to get the centre channel ...

    1. Run your own speaker cable.

    2. No.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    man - you REALLY need to do some of your own research first.

    I'd recomend starting here first:

    Unfortunatly with that unit, it is not possible to use a center channel with the current pre-outs that it provides. I would have to guess that the center channel signal was mixed into the front speakers as there are only fronts rears n sub outputs. I would assume that the only way to get the true signal for center channel dts is to use the digital optical ouput.
    your other option for a center channel speaker is to get a small amplifier that you can input the front speaker preouts and can give you a mono (or bridgeable) output that would match the speakers power handling.

    Yeah, Sorry. I tend to over-complicate things sometimes. force of habit with my customers that they want me to explain to them how to do things instead of actually paying for me to do it.
    I'm not trying to confuse on purpose. Hopefully you can understand.

    hehe, how about this: WHY do you want a center channel? Why not keep it simple at 4.1 instead of spending a few hundred for 5.1 for an volume the size of your shower? Do you really think you'll tell the difference?
