I'm trying to put my surround and surround back speakers as well as surround and back surround speaker out's from a 7.1 amp on a TRS patchbay.
I have cheap speakers hard wired to the ceiling and I just got some real nice JBL movie theater speakers for the back surround.
Netflix is mostly 5.1 so I'd rather have my back surrounds wired to the surrounds but a lot of HD tv/blue ray is 7.1 so I'd like to have the JBL's as back surround still using the cheap speakers as surrounds.
The patch bay will make it easier to switch monitoring configurations.
Is there any issues with soldering speaker cable to a trs (with nothing connected to the ring) connector and wiring the cable from the speaker out of the amp to trs connector all hooked up to the patchbay?
