So here's my setup:

Pioneer SC-05 receiver
4 outdoor speaker
Complete 5.1 speaker setup inside the house


I currently have 2 of the outside speakers in the B speaker left and the other 2 in the B speaker right. The issue is I would like to get the outdoor speakers louder without having to get the indoor speakers cranked up. Additionally, I would like to control the level of the pairs outside as well. I have 2 speakers near my hot tub so I would like to get those louder without blasting the other speakers. Is my best bet to get an amp with individual channel levels or something else?

I don't fully understand how an amp would hook into my SC-05 so please dumb this down for me, hahaha.

Thanks so much for any input.

Connect the (2) pairs of speakers to the switch below and then connect the switch to the B speaker posts.
