Go ahead and do it. You want your 3 best speakers up front to receive as much power as possible without clipping. Why waste your amplifier on surrounds? According to JBL Pro:

Quote:
Ideally you should pick an amplifier that can deliver power equal to twice the speaker's continuous power rating. This means that a speaker with a "nominal impedance" of 8 ohms and a continuous power rating of 350 watts will require an amplifier that can produce 700 watts into an 8 ohm load. For a stereo pair of speakers, the amplifier should be rated at 700 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

A quality professional loudspeaker can handle transient peaks in excess of its rated power if the amplifier can deliver those peaks without distortion. Using an amp with some extra "headroom" will help assure that only clean, undistorted power gets to your speakers.

Today I emailed emotiva about my UPA-2 , to see if using 1 channel would increase the watts & the reply was yes it will ! So I think the front L/R on the UPA-7 @ 170 watts & my center on the UPA-2 ! This should change everything !!!
