I am not sure on this. I know, in general, you don't want to combine the speaker level outputs. That would likely cause a short.
I am not sure combining line level outputs is a great idea either. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't, but it's more or less a short circuit You can rig a simple circuit to do it, but if you don't want to do that, I can think of a third option.
You could buy a cheap mixer, and I mean CHEAP. Like $50, or so. Kind of ugly, but Zzounds and Sweetwater sell them. You connect your zone out line level signals to the mixer.
Taking the mixed signal, you could then feed that into an amplifier.
A simpler option would be some sort of dual voice coil speakers that accept both a L and R speaker level connection. Whether your receiver could power up all those speakers, I can't say. I would recommend an affordable 200 watt / channel pro amp. Like the Behringer A500.
There may be simpler/cheaper ways to do this. So don't take my word for any of this. I just posted the only idea I currently have on the subject. I will think about it some more.
