Looked at some of the other post and didn't find anything that matched my query, was hoping some kind soul more versed in electricity and speakers might help me.
Have a new house that was wired with Cat6 wiring going to 4 zones (gang boxes) from a central location. Then from each of those gang boxes where one end of the Cat6 terminates, I have speaker wire also terminating that goes to various in-ceiling speakers.
My original vision was to buy a Whole House Audio system that has controllers that use the CAT6 for power and control and also send the signal to the speakers that are in the ceiling (as opposed to one of those systems where the speaker runs terminate all the way down where the CAT6 or other control wires terminate)
Anyway the problem lies in that now that I'm actually at the point of buying equipment like in-wall controllers, I haven't found a controller that can handle 4 speakers (2 pairs), every manual I've read from a plethara of manufactures either says stuff like "Use TB2 to connect one pair (only) of 8 ohm audio speakers to the volume control." or says nothing at all.
So the question is, if I splice essentially 8 speaker wires (+ and - for 4 speakers) (see my crude drawing below) in to 4 speaker wires and then plug those wires in to the controller, am I'm risking frying the controller or burning my house down, or am I just going to lose 50% of the power to speakers?
This is for background music, they're 60watt speakers so really 30 watts of juice to them is fine for my purposes. I just want to be sure I'm not doing something totally verboden in the electrical or audio world.
