Decided to go with a Sonos/Outdoor speaker combo to drive music to the patio and I just want to be sure I'm not missing anything for the install.

System will be my cheap Sony STR-SE391 receiver in a media cabinet in the TV room. Sonos Connect (ZP90) connected to the receiver. Receiver connected to a pair of DT AW-6500. Monoprice 14AWG wiring.


Is my Sony receiver sufficient?

What connectors do I need to connect the wiring to the speakers? The raw wire goes into the back of the receiver but I can't figure out what connectors the speakers use. I assume this little writeup is correct?

Here are the specs:
Audio-video (AV) receiver: STR-SE391
* Stereo mode power output: 100 watts x 2 (40 to 20,000 Hz, both channels driven into 8 ohms, THD 0.5 percent)
* Surround mode power output: 80 watts x 5 (all channels driven into 8 ohms at 1000 Hz, 0.8 percent THD)
* Analog audio inputs: 3 (including 5.1-channel inputs)
* Analog audio outputs: 1 (stereo RCA), subwoofer out
* AV inputs: 2
* AV outputs: 2
* Surround effects: Dolby Pro Logic decoding, other digital signal processing sound fields including Virtual Dolby Surround
* Remote control: Yes
* Rear-channel stereo: Yes
* AC outlets: 1
* Headphone jack: Yes (1/4-inch phono)
* Speaker selector: A, B, A+B
* Tuner preset channels: 30 FM/AM
* Auto-tuning: Yes
* Direct tuning: Yes
* Receiver dimensions: 17 by 5.5 by 11.5 inches

Here's a picture of the back:

Frequency Response: 40 Hz - 30 kHz
Nominal Impedance: 4 - 8 Ohms
