I have an external amplifier connected to zone 3 driving outdoor speakers. Can I connect a second external amp to zone 2? The manual reads as if only one external amp can be connected.

You're right about the tweeters, but I'm not certain about the midrange/drivers. Any way, I've up the budget(as always) and I'm now looking at a Parasound New Classic 2125. I still want to add the...
