Can I Use One Amp to Power Both My Patio and Pool Speakers?

With more people expecting to be spending more time at home for the foreseeable future, we have received a few calls this past week about Outdoor Audio and Video systems. A reoccurring question is “Can I add another zone, such as a Pool or Fire Pit, to my existing Patio speakers?” The answer is a qualified yes. We primarily use Sonos and Bose amplifiers for music zones and both of these amplifiers can power up to 4 speakers. The qualifier is that all four speakers will operate as a single zone. This means all 4 speakers will come on/off at the same time, will be playing at the same volume, and playing the same source. Before deciding, ask yourself the question, “Will there ever be a time that I want to play one zone and not the other? Is there a need to control the volume of 2 zones independently? If there answer is yes to either question, I recommend you use a 2nd amplifier for the new zone. To learn more about adding Outdoor Audio and Video systems, we invite you to visit our Outdoor Living section.
