How do I connect 5 cube speakers to my Acoustimass 7?

I have 5 cube speakers, but the Acoustimass 7 only has 3 cube speaker outputs. How do I connect all 5 of them to get real surround sound?

I beleive the AM7 was designed as a stereo (2.1) system so even if you connect the speakers to it you won't get surround sound.  It's not ideal but you could connect a 5.1 amp so that the Left, Right and Bass are attached to the AM7 then run the surrounds and center directly to the other cubes.  The trouble there is those cubes were designed to run through an accoustimass module so may not sound as good when plugged into something else.

Hello Marceljeisma,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community!

 

As stated in the post above by Morlock, the Acoustimass 7 is designed as a 2.1 system therefore you will not be able to achieve surround sound. 

 

Many thanks,
