8020B/7050B 2.1 and 5.1 A/B

I'm in the process of thinking up a home theatre rig. I currently own 2 8020Bs that I use as my PC speakers. I will most likely get a 7050B to accompany them. I'm thinking of also expanding the set to a 5.1 with 3 more 8020s.

The setup would be in one open room with my pc behind my couch where I would enjoy the 5.1 the most. The question then is, is it possible for me to use the two speakers at my pc as a 2.1 system for the pc and use the same speakers as the REAR speakers of a 5.1 system (turning them around to face the couch)? Is this possible without having to manually alternate the cables at the subwoofer every time I wish to change setups?

Hi Robert,

Unfortunately that kind of configuration is not possible to achieve.
