    I am helping a friend hook up his VR-7070 receiver. He has no manual for the receiver. I have everything hooked up with no problems except the pre-wired speakers he has on his patio. I have searched but can't find anything to specifically help me with this problem.

    My question is this:

    He is running a 6.1 speaker system in his living room theater. Each speaker in the setup is hooked up via bare wire twisted under binding posts for the 6 channels. The Subwoofer is connected via a subwoofer cable to the Sub connection. Everything for DVD player works excellent.

    The problem is that I am also attempting to hook up his 2 patio speakers to the unit for radio? I see a room B hookup but this is RCA white / red hookup, not a speaker wire hookup. I also see 2 red, 2 black spring connector speaker hookups that show additional speakers.

    So my question is can this receiver somehow hook up these outdoor speakers and if so how do I do it. He swears that he used to have it hooked up with no additional special cable ends and he could listen outside? I don't even want to separate the outdoor speakers from the inside.

    My only thought is can I double up the main speakers to push this outside also?

    Thanks for any assistance. No manual makes this a little harder.

    The patio speakers should be connected to the "Speaker B" spring clips.
