I am not doing any thing to fancy just 4 speakers two in the garage and 2 mounted under neath the eve., for some sounds out side. And reccomandations on indoor and out door speakers?
    i would appreciate it if any one could steer me in the right direction

    If the wiring will be in the wall, you’ll need CL-2 or –3 rated speaker wire. Otherwise regular speaker wire will do. I don’t see any reason to use any multi-conductor wire in your situation. 14-ga. wire is adequate for most installations, but 12 is generally more desirable, if you don’t mind the extra expense.

    As far as recommendations for speakers to use, you should post a new thread in our Speakers and Subwoofers Forum.

    okay , yes i am going to run the wires in the walls so what is the difference? and does each run need to be a home run or can i daisy chain? And some time i would like to turn the out side speakers off and on when not in use?
    thx aaron
