Default DSX Front height and front wide question

I need a few questions answered if possible. I have a 3311ci and it is a 7.2 reciever but it can also have 2 height speakers and 2 wide speakers....am I correct in saying the the "wides" will produce sound when the fronts do increasing the front sound stage? How does this work?? If the reciever has the ability to run 11 speakers why is it not a 11.2 reciever?? Is this because the "heights and wides" are not discrete? When does the sound for the wides or heights come in? Do any of the speakers get cancelled out using "Heights and wides? I am Assumming you have basically a 5.1 system with either "Rear surrounds", "Front heights" or front wides...you just choose. I thought DSX was 7.1 + "front wides" or "front heights".

on my 3311Ci I want to use "front wides"...does that mean I can not use my Surround back speakers but instead use the front wides? If this is true should I not even hook up the Rear surrounds?

Here is the best place to pose this inquiry, as BatPig is the leading authority and decipher on all Denon AVR's.
I guess my PM didn't help ?

It did LOL!! But then I got confused...I looked at the manual and it shows have all speakers wired and I thought that meant it would paly them all...If I am understanding this correctly the reciever can only play a total of 7.2 including either (Wides, heights and rears) and you just choose one of the three. Your Pm was greatly apptreciated as well as all the many times you have helped me my friend! You have helped me out a LOT more than you realize LOL!!

The most positive place to check your inquiries would be at BatPig's site he is the Wizard of Denon. he's amazing and has helped me numerous times.
