Set up Dolby Atmos but do I need to amplify the sound output



I own a Yamaha RX-A1050 (discontinued) and recently set up Dolby Atmos. My three front speakers are input to an Emotiva amplifier rated @ 110w/ch. The Atmos are input to the front presence inputs on receiver. I was considering connecting the Atmos to the Emotiva as well but noticed that the back of the Yamaha does not have a pre out for front presence. The only outs I do have available are surround back! The atmos speakers do output sound currently. Is there any way to do this or should I just accept, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Thanks!

The good news is that your height channels won't likely ever need as much juice as your front sound stage, so you should honestly be good to just leave it all as is.
