I am trying to setup a fairly large room that is family room & Kitchen. About 24 feet by 24 feet.
I want to put a playbar on the TV, and have surround speakers.
I also want to be able to fill the room with music when not watching TV.
My question is, if I went with a playbar, sub and 2 play 5's for surrounds, when playing music, will the play 5's and sub act together and be stereo ?
I think the right terminology is: If I bond the playbar, sub and two play 5's as surrounds, can the play 5's act as a pair when playing music and use the sub.
To throw one more loop into the mix, I would be willing to put play 5's in each corner of the room. So would the config then be
Rear play 5's are bonded to the playbar as surrounds. Sub is bonded to playbar. Front play 5's are for music only, so they are paired to be stereo, but will all 4 play 5's act as music speakers then ?
The other option is I just put up play 5's and a sub for music, and a playbar, some play-3's or 1's for surrounds and a sub. But I am trying to do away with duplicating speakers.
