If the 5.1 is running from a shared amplifier you will need a dummy-load so as not to damage the amp.



@Bill Your question is quite unclear to me... You mean, you want the audio from your 5.1 system to only be reproduced in 2 speakers? You want to reproduce the audio that is divided through the 6 channels and send it only to 2 of them? or do you wish only to mute the other 4 channels?
