    For my HT system, I plan on gettin a Yamaha 1300, JBL NSP package as surrounds and center, and JBL N28's as mains, with a SVS 20-39PCi. My dad really wants speakers outside too, but I don't really know how to do that, or what to do. I'm probably going to get just a pair of JBL N24AW for the outside, but what do i do to power them? Can I run them of the Yamaha 1300? Do I need to get a seperate 2 channel reciever? What's the cheapest way to get speakers outside and power them sufficiently? thanks

    The RXV1300 has an amplified B channel for another set of main speakers. This is probably the easiest way for you to power your outdoor speakers. Keep in mind that you won't be able to play music outside while watching a DVD on your main setup with this approach.

    The 1300 also has a "Zone 2 out". If you use the Zone 2 you could play two different things at once, but you would need to get a two-channel amplifier to power your outdoor speakers.

    Hope that helps,

    Jeff

    I heard that if you run all 6 channels from the 1300, and hook up a pair of speakers to B you don't get the full power. Is this true? And also I was looking at a Niles SVL-2 speaker slelctor that you can hook up 2 pairs of speakers to and has 100 watts per channel. would this be better than running all the speakers through the reciever? thanks
