We used to do this speaker wiring trick with pro amps. It does work, but the amps can get really hot if you're not careful!

Never saw a commercial unit that did it. Wonder what's inside?
Take the Speaker Voltage Test!

Panomaniac: Just to let you know I emailed taloyd about the box he's got, but good luck getting one for yourself. They do seem quite worthwhile.

[B]That box looks like a clean solution. But, if you want to try out the Hafler circuit (or part of it), you can wire up a simple Hafler circuit with just speaker wires (assuming that your amp can handle low ohms, but then, that's probably still and issue with that box -- I'd be afraid to do this circuit on a typical receiver).
My amp is definately beefy enough - it can handle 2-16ohms, and even distributes unused power "intelligently" to make better use of its capacity for high wattage.

Originally posted by Vidgamer I just connected 3 speakers (L/C/R) to a beefy 2ch amp. I'm still trying to decide what to make of it. Instead of having a distinct separation, it kinda blurs the channels together, creating a more seamless presentation. But it definitely gives you sound which images convincingly. Interesting.
That's the main reason I've been looking around for a commercially available product. My hopes are such a box might preserve imaging better then a simple wiring job.

Thanks for the tips.

I dunno, I'm enjoying this 3-speaker setup!It has better imaging than I expected. I mean, you kinda think that it must be a blurry mess, but it really isn't.
