    I moved into a new house, it was a model home in the past in the community. I found that there are built in speakers in 3 different rooms. Downstairs, there is a cabinet with wires for the speakers (I need to figure those out too). But we also noticed that there is a wifi being transmitted in the master bed room that says “master bedroom speakers.n003” but I connect to it and I don’t know where to go from there. The house is around 10 years old. Does anyone know how to help me figure out how to get these speakers to start playing?

    Get one of these signal tracers. Typically with 4-wire speaker cable, red and black goes to one speaker, and green and white goes to the other. Connect the tone generator to the red/black or green/white and you should hear a speaker somewhere generating an audible signal.

    Do you have any suggestions for a good amp to power/run the speakers? I had one but it burnt out, so I need to find a good alternative.

    And how would i run an amp that is connected to
    speakers in 3 different rooms. Do I need separate amps?

    I suggest getting in touch with a specialist in whole-house audio like Home Theater Direct.

    You might want to explore more up to date alternatives. Those types of systems tend to be out of date considering current streaming options. What is your goal? There's a tendency to see speakers in rooms, and want to use them the way they were originally meant to be used, but that might not make any sense and might not achieve what you want to use them for.
