I have a friend with a 5.1 audio receiver located in the living room. He also wants to listen to audio from the receiver outside and in the garage. He wants to listen to the same audio in all locations so multi source is not required. The house is wired for speakers in these new locations but we're confused about how to handle the volume. We know we can install volume controls outside and in the garage to reduce' the volume but we think those locations will require more volume due to the openness, not less volume. How do we accomplish this so we can turn down the volume in the living room but turn up the volume in the other two locations?


I'd be embarrassed to tell you the receiver model number. Let's just say most of you probably pay more for an HDMI cable than this entire system cost. It only has one set of speaker outputs, no other audio outputs.

Heck, you could simply add a basic 2-channel receiver to power the other rooms. For audio sources, you could use some Y-type RCA cables to spit the audio from your CD player for example, to both receivers. You could then either use the volume control on the 2nd receiver to control those speakers or, install their own volume controls in the walls for adjustment and leave the volume control knob on the 2nd receiver alone.
