Would it work setting up 2 amps one for 5 channel and one 2 channel, If i did this would I have to get the same brand for the sound to sound proper, or even have the same wattage.
Or would neither even matter

If you are thinking of simultaneously connecting both amps to a single pair of speakers it wouldn't matter what you used because you'd blow them both up as soon as you turned them on.

Justin, you'll be fine, as long as your pre/pro has 7-channel pre-outs. I'm doing the same thing... a 5-channel for my current 5-speaker setup using a 7.1 channel AVR as a pre/pro. When I add the last 2 speakers, I'll do one of two things:

1) Buy a more or equally powerful 2-channel (or 2 monoblocks) to power my fronts and use the 5-channel for center and surrounds, (most likely) or

2) Use the AVR's internal amps to power the BSL/BSR speakers (less likely).

I would NOT invest big money in a 2-channel amp to power the BSL/BSR speakers.
