Thank you for the detailed response. Yes, they are 8ohm 110W RMS speakers.
Option 1, while ideal, is also the most expensive and not something that I am willing to invest additional money into at this time.
Option 2 is what I ended up doing. I connected the L+ (white) and R+ (red) together and the L- (green) and R- (black) together. I contacted the manufacturer of the amp, and they recommended doing it this way. I then connected each room (W/R and G/B) on a single channel (L+L- or R+R-), bridging none. Since the amp is 12-channels, I have three spare channels. I tried to pair rooms into separate zones as best I could based on their relative location, size, furnishing, and flooring type, for proper gain setting. I then set the volume control in each room to max, adjusted the gain on each zone of the amp to where the volume was at max listening comfort, and then dialed the volume control in each room back 25%.
Everything sounds great, and the house is rocking! Thank you! By the way, Sonos is awesome!
