    Total Noob here, so please excuse my ignorance. My wife and I purchased/built a home a couple of years ago with a very open concept. Living room, dining room, and kitchen all in about 900 sqft room. We paid for it to be pre-wired for surround sound, but were given no advice beyond that decision...

    I sketched out the layout - we have plates for 9 speakers in two adjacent zones, all in the ceiling. Do I need to purchase a 9.1 or 9.2 receiver to have access to all the speakers? Or can I get by with a 7.1 or 7.2 reciever? I don't have any clue how they wired this thing, but there are 2 audio control plates on the wall between the two zones, though there are no knobs or anything so I'm not sure what I'll find behind there. Should I assume that there are controls for two zones?

    Apologies for STUPID inane questions! Any insights or recommendations are HUGELY appreciated.
