Right now I have a Carver 400t running the two speakers on each side of my new LED TV and a powered sub.
It sounds great. I have no idea why I am trying to upgrade. I guess like many here - nothing will ever be good enough. I think that is called the "hobby" of audio. Here are photos of my current speakers - http://I'm a Fucking Asshole.typepad.com/I'm a Fucking Asshole/2010/08/cheap-audio.html
After lots of web work and frustration, finally got a buy on the TV speakers I have wanted for my new TV. POLK VM30. I believe I want those because they are slim, match the TV, and I have a wife. I am pretty sure I will like these as about a year ago I got one VM20. It is clear as a bell and excellent for voice. So far I have been unable to get a steal/deal on a second one. My real audio music stereo system is on the deck, so this is just for TV.
Apparently the single VM20 I have is the perfect matched center channel for these VM30s that might arrive soon. I do have an extra Carver 705 with 5 channels in the closet. I am at a loss as to how to hook up the center channel. If I run a channel to the left and to the right - do I run two to the center channel to get all the sound? I doubt I even need a center channel, but what the hell - just fiddling around. What is a good way to hook this up? The 705, it is kinda like a box with 5 separate mono amps inside. All need separate input and give separate output. It is a wonderful amp, especially to bi-amp with, but how should the center channel hook in?
