Hagbardr Quadraphonic sound, what happened to it? (34) RE: Quadraphonic sound, what happened to it? 04 Jan 00

I'm a former stereo salesman, so I can provide a little help here. Dolby Surround is a 4 channel system with five speakers - Left, right, center, two rear. The rear speakers share a channel. Subwoofers are handled by crossovers in either the reciever or the subwoofer. Dolby Digital is a 5.1 channel system. Each rear speaker has it's own channel and the subwoofer has it's own unpowered channel. Neither does you much good unless your source is recorded in surround sound.
