I'm not sure if you've eliminated these speakers for other reasons, but the Klipsch KHO-7 and Klipsch AW-650 are supposed to be terrific outdoor speakers as well.

May recommend looking into the Harmony remote instead of buying the pioneer. I have the Harmony One which works great, and greatly simplifies having to use 3+ remotes all the time just to watch TV.

I'm a little confused- is this for a home theater or just for stereo listening? Why would you want 3 pairs of the 170's? My guess is your best bet are getting the Sierra 2's with the Ascend sub.
