    I need some guidance on basic hookup requirements for outdoor speakers. We have a regular stereo system with receiver, CD player, AM/FM tuner components. We want to hook up one pair of Yamaha 130 W outdoor speakers, with the ability to turn them on and off. We'd like the option to later add a pair to the front porch. Can we simply use a 4 zone speaker selector, or do we have to have dual zone receiver?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.:)

    If you want to use all your existing gear and you don't care if you are listening to the same source with all zones then you can just use a speaker selector like this one: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=300-974

    This has circuits to protect your receiver and will also allow you to add speakers to the front porch later.
