Rob,

Take a look at this for an overall kind of primer. For a single zone type system, you’d have speaker selector and volume controls.

An 8 pair speaker selector like this.

Volume controls.

That will be impedance matching in the speaker selector and standard volume controls.

As for speakers, take a look at these for good `bang for the buck.’

For outdoor speakers, these are really good sounding with a nicer bracket.

Email back if you’d like to fine tune things.

I have eight rooms plus a rear outside deck area to wire for whole house sound. Please recommend and quote price and availabitity for a system to meet or exceed my requirements:
