7.2 Content
 
If I tear up my walls and stick a couple of speakers behind me, who is broadcasting 7.2. Maybe I need just one speaker back there.
My receiver is 7.2.
Thx

No one that I know of, and your lucky to get some of the newer movies in surround sound, best bet is a download or off a blue-ray.

The .2 is for 2 subwoofers/LFE not surround speakers. The 7 is 1 Left, 2 Center, 3 Right, 4 Surround (side) Left, 5 Surround (side) Right, 6 Rear Right and 7 Rear Left.

EIther put 2 rear surrounds or none; putting one doesn't make any sense. depending on the sixe of your room AND if your receiver does Dolby Atmos you may get more out of height speakers then rear surrounds YMMV.

No one broadcasts 7.x

Use Dolby PLIIx on your receiver for 7.x

7.2 isn't broadcast bur there are many blu-rays and d/l content that has 7.2

I run everything on my Yamaha at 9.2. It's obviously not broadcast like that, but it sounds great!
