Outdoor speaker set-up/configuration
I'm not too sure how to pose this question, but here it goes. I have two outdoor speakers hanging outside my home, about ten feet high, above my patio door, that are relatively small, with 4"woofers and 3/4" tweeters. Farther out, I will have have two TIC GS3 8" Omnidirectional speakers (just ordered) sitting on the ground.
To power these four speakers, I have a fairly basic amp, the Onkyo TX-SR494. I will not have an outdoor sub.
My question is, how should I best connect these four speakers?
Since I want the main volume to pipe through them, I figure the TIC GS3s should be connected as the fronts. Should I connect the other two, higher up speakers, as the surrounds or as the height speakers?
The main listening area will be pretty much in the middle of all four.
Any guidance is welcome, thank you!
