    I'm not sure if this is the best place for this, but I'm wanting to put 4 outdoor speakers on my patio. I've got a couple of ideas for speakers, but my main problem is how to power them. I plan on putting the receiver inside and running the wires to the outside.

    What receiver should I look into for playng 4 speakers at the same time? I'm not even sure where to look for a 4 channel receiver. Thanks for the help.

    You’ll need a speaker selector switch that will allow you to safely play that many speakers without the potential of harm to your receiver. It can be located inside by the receiver. Radio Shack sells them.

    I gotta wonder, though – 4 speakers? How big is this patio... [​IMG]

    It's good size. The house sits on 1/2 acre.

    Yamaha units have a/b channes for you too run 2 sets of speakers. Give them a check. I'm using the 2nd zone to power my pair on the patio... from my 2400x... speakers are infinity Jr.

    Most recievers have an A/B selector for running 4 speakers at a time.
