I was all set to use the Russound CA4.4pi for the following 4-zone arrangement...when I relaized that the pre-amp outputs of the 4.4 are variable based on kepad volume...Ummph! That means the primary room must be on for the other rooms in the same zone to enjoy audio...HELP!
Here is what I am looking to do:
This is a 3000sq ft Colonial, with a large yard
Zone 1: 2nd Floor Master Suite
Speakers and Keypad in Bedroom...
Speakers and Volume Control in bathroom
Zone 2: Main Floor
Speakers and KP in Kitchen
Speakers and VC in Dining Room
Speakers and VC in Living ROom
Speakers and VC in Library
Zone 3: Basement
Speakers and KP in Finished Rec Room
Speakers and VC in Woodshop
Zone 4: Outside
Speakers and KP in Garage
Speakers and VC for Patio/Yard
I want to be able to listen to audio in the VC rooms without having to hear it in the KP or other VC rooms.
The house has a fairly open floor plan, so seperating the Main floor into zones would be useless...
Help...Would another brand be a better fit? I am "hoping" to do this myself...but, if necessary will pursue an installer (only 'cause they have to configure it http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif
Thanx in advance
