Modifying a Acoustimass 5 series 2 system

Would it be alright to rewire the Acoustimass system?

right now that system has 2 double cube redline speakers wired to the Acoustimass subwoofer

Would it be alright to wire a set of Bose161 to the subwoofer and wire the double cube speakers to the amps surround outputs? 

The reason I'm thinking this is because I could put the double cubes to the corners of the room and the 161 speakers on each side of the TV.

Hi Mikar


Thanks for writing in!


I would not advise mixing these connections up as the Acoustimass module has a very specific EQ and cross over point which would not benefit the 161s and could potentially damage them.  I would keep the AM5 as it is, and use the 161 as the surrounds.
