Hello! First time poster on this great forum. Thanks in advance for any help.\n\nI'm spec'ing out a setup for outdoor speakers utilizing the Zone 2 of my 7.1 receiver and I wanted to run it by this forum to see if anyone could find any pitfalls in my plan.\n\nPlan is to utilize the Zone 2 on the AVR to power 4 outdoor speakers -- 2 stereo pairs on adjacent sides of house wired in parallel.\n\nSpeakers would be outside on a covered deck. No direct exposure to elements, but will be exposed to below freezing temperatures and humidity.\n\nMy AVR is a Denon AVR-S750H (Stereo RMS Power 75 watts. Peak 165W, 1 channel driven. 4-16ohms)\n\nFor the outdoor speakers, I'm still deciding between the larger Klipsch AW-650 (10-85W, 8ohms) and the smaller Klipsch AW-525 (10-75W, 8ohms). Any thoughts on these speakers?\n\nI'm not sure if the speakers I have in the living room wired for 5.1 affect the power handling of the outdoor speakers and load on the AVR, but just in case, they are the Triangle Borea 5.1 package and Xfinity Sub.\n\nBelow is my wiring diagram. This also includes measurements to show estimated length of cable runs.\n\nI'm planning to use 12AWG wire rated or outdoor use, using these splitters and couplers.\n\nAny feedback is much appreciated!
