    Hi,

    Iam very new to this field and need lots of assistance from everyone. I have 2 rtia 7 as fronts ,2 flxiA4-2 as surround CSiA4 as centre , ELAC A4 Atmos And DSW660i - 2 subwoofers as a current setup with Denon AVR X 2200W.

    Now I have bought 2 rtia 9 with Yamaha aventage flagship 3070, 9.2 receiver. Please advice me if I can use rtia 7 as surround speakers and please let what setup I should do to get amazing results from this setup. Attached photo for room size. Thanks a ton

    You will need a separate power amp to drive the 9's. My advice is to return them, keep the new AVR and keep the 7's in front.

    Ohh really ... they don’t take it back f1 nut, they adviced me to place 9’s in the front and use those 7’s as surround as new 3070 has ample power to deliver

    No AVR has ample power to drive the 9's properly.

    F1nut is right, the A9's can be used with that receiver, and music will play, but to get the most out of them you need an additional power amplifier. Who doesn't want to get the most out of their big speakers ?

    The 7s are a bit of a stretch for most AVRs too.

    Thanks a ton for the advice, however just a tot , I totally understand that I need to buy separate amp to drive 9s, however it’s just 5 days I bought those speakers and amp and total investment is close to $8000 for all the speakers and it very hard to put some more for sometime. For an example if I connect all 9.2 setup including front 9s and surround 7s with all the other speakers will it harm amplifier 3070.

    Regards,

    What happens is the more channels you use, the less watts per channel you get. Your AVR is rated at 150wpc with 2 channels driven. By the time it's driving 9 channels the wpc is going to drop. I don't know what to exactly, but likely less than 100wpc. Therefore, you're not going to get the best sound from your rig and pushing the volume up higher to get more out of your rig may damage your speakers. Be sure to set all the speakers to small and cross over to the sub at 80Hz to help take some of the load off the AVR.

    Thanks a ton f1nut, sure I will set all the speakers to small and cross over as 80Hz without a miss as advised... thanks again with this advice I will try and see how entire 9.2 setup sounds.. have a good day take care
  • F1nutF1nut Posts: 38,502
    You've got a lot of speakers for what looks like a relatively small area. It should be quite an immersive experience. B)

    I agree as a A7 owner. No receiver has got enough jam for a pair of A9's even in stereo only mode. They are really power hungry.

    Yes, space it little small and less, curtain side is a door hence can’t setuo for straight if not room would have been little big .... in the mode of connecting speakers with all small and 80Hz ... will surely share the pic and my experience ☺️☺️ F1nut ☺️

    Seems a bit much. You could try and sell the 7's and use the money towards an amplifier as it looks like you already have actual surround speakers. Just a suggestion, enjoy your setup either way.

    Very nice. That's similar to what I used to have. Until you get a separate amp for the A9's, just watch the volume dial (don't go too loud). If it starts to sound compressed or not right, dial it down. The RTIA's are very nice for HT.

    Nightfall, not worth selling those 7s because it will go with very less price though I took it a year back, I think it’s worth keeping those and use it when required,

    Thorton, surly will keep the tab on the volume and also planning to buy YAMAHA Professional Power amp PX3 near future .. thanks a ton for all help ☺️

    Nandikol, I think you'd be a lot happier with a home audio amp instead of that pro amp. Pro amps aren't known for their sound quality.

    Maybe sell the A7's and put whatever money you get for them towards a nice home audio amplifier.

    That site is hard to use. I did see an Odyssey Audio Stratos HT3, which is a 3 channel amp, so you could power the center with it as well. That would allow you to run the front 3 full range (large) for a seamless front stage.

    The Jeff Rowland 302 that Clipdat linked is another possibility.

  • NandikolNandikol Posts: 23
    Yes clipdat, that’s fine anyways I would have checked with you guys again ..f1nut I tired above odyssey audio but looks like it’s little difficult to get and again checked with my seller and he advised That i can go for marantz power amp 2 channel, however it is out of budget -$1400.00.
    When I say it’s more he tells me to go with Yamaha PX3 which is close to $650.00
  • F1nutF1nut Posts: 38,502
    The Yamaha is a pro amp, which has no business in a home audio system. If you sold the A7's would that enable you to afford the Marantz?
