    Hello, I just bought a new 5.1 surround system, Dennon DHT591BA, and it sounds fantastic. However, I have a hopefully easy question that I haven't been able to figure out. We have two outdoor speakers that we used to have connected to our B Channel of our old 2-channel receiver. Since there are no more unused speaker inputs, what are my options available to hook up those outdoor speakers? Thank you!

    You should have picked up a receiver that had a zone 2 output. The other option is to use your old receiver to power the outdoor speakers.

    you could use a speaker selector off of your front L/R channel and basically split the output. This is not a great option, but still an option that would work...

    Whatever you do don't piggy back connect those outdoor speakers directly to you receiver L&R speaker connections.
