I'm going to warn you up front that I'm completely new to everything.

Recently, I bought a 5.1 system (Energy Veritas minis + 10" Energy sub) for indoors and Denon 3313ci receiver. I would like to take advantage of the 2nd and 3rd zones by putting a single speaker by my front porch and another by my back porch exclusively for playing mono audio outdoors while entertaining or having a cold one.

Is this possible with my setup? What's the best way to set them up with my receiver?

Welcome to AVSForum! smile.gif

Thanks for the warning as I've included pictures to make it easier for you. smile.gif

On the 3313CI, set the "Amp Assign" setting (p. 130 OM) to "Zone 2/3 (M)" ...



and then connect one speaker to the "Surround Back L" posts and the other to the "Surround Back R" posts (in yellow below). Note that audio to these speaker posts can only be from "analog" connected devices, USB, or one of the network audio sources (ie. no HDMI, optical, or digital coax). If you want HDMI sources to play to these speakers, you would want to connect an HDMI cable from the Zone 2 (HDMI) output to another AVR and then connect these speakers to that 2nd AVR or you can also connect the Zone 2 (HDMI) out directly to an HDTV to use the TV's speakers.




Also, there's a dedicated thread for Denon AVR-XX13 Owners linked in my sig. Review posts #3-6 in that thread for additional helpful information.
