My receiver Harman Kardon is a 5.1/7.1 reciever. The one sub system can be eliminated by using Harmans' Pre Out connected to a standalone sub amp. This could allow all 6/8 speakers to have separate subs

After I bought my Harman Kardon Receiver my book told me there are three configurations to its' speakers Small range limited satelite. Large full Range speakers and above mentioned Pre out Custom In the large configuration only the main front speakers share the subs' deepest sound. Out of curiosity I tried Harman and found that their receivers can be purchased with or without their speaker systems. I also found the back rear are sold separately plus in addition to that they may sell the customs' as well.
