When you wire two speakers in parallel, the ohm load changes for the amplifier from 8 ohms, to 4 ohms.
This is fine as the Connect:AMP unit from Sonos is stable with a 4 ohm load.
If you choose some other amplifier, either have one with extra channels, or one stable to 4 ohms.
I will just agree with others that if you are prewiring a home, now is a really good time to add keypad wiring to the mix. Keep in mind you can get a whole home 6 zone system for about $1200 with keypads, and I personally find keypads way easier for day-to-day use than running an app all the time.
