I am setting up a sound system for a large garage (2,000 sf) and a large garden area 60 feet from the garage. The customer has 4 pairs of AW650 which are 4 OHMS. I am looking for a suggestion on a stereo receiver or maybe some setup with a avr with an amp hooked to it.

Source needs: am/fm radio, iPod, and maybe some extra inputs.

Also, the garden needs to be a separate zone with some kind of volume control remotely. The main garage needs volume control also away from the receiver.

I am interested in hearing what you guys think would be an adequate amplifier to get good performance from these speakers.

Later we might add a URC RF remote to the system.

Thanks in advance! Let me know if you need more info.

Are those speakers anything like the DX4603's?

Confused? Why? NO brand or link to the product so nobody can tell what the product is or what it's spec's are except that they are 4 ohm. (I'm assuming Klipch but don't know that for a fact)

Now that you know, try and rewrite your question so people can understand what you have. Try posting a link to the speakers website so that people can get an idea of the expected performance and recommend something of comparable quality. Sounds to me like you need a variation of a basic multi-room system with amp and 4 volume controls and maybe an impedance matching device depending on the amp you go for. I could be miles off base though. An idea of budget would help too. If it's reasonable you might just be able to do somethingcreative like use a Sonos unit as a source feeding into a Sonamp power amp with a volume control for each area.
I guarantee I'll tell you the truth and I guarantee I'll tell you what you need to know but I can't guarantee that I'll be telling you anything you want to hear.

Ok, sorry about that. Kinda new to asking questions on here. The speakers are Proficient AW650. [Link: proficientaudio.com];

I have been doing some research on what to do.  I am looking at getting a stereo receiver and possibly adding an external amp.  This is for a large garage and outside for a large garden area. There will be no need for video.  It looks like most receivers either have 50 to 95 watts per channel.  Is that enough to power 150 watt speakers?

"Zone 1" will have 2 pairs connected and "zone 2" will have one pair connected.

While you're here, you should copy the URL of this thread, then go to the other thread and tell us that there's more info here.

Then, while you're there, you should copy that URL, then come back here and tell us that there's more info here.

There's no problem trying to carry on a discussion in two places, but it helps the helpers (us) if we can see all that's been suggested.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Sorry about the 2 threads. Newbie screwing things up here. This link is to another thread that is more geared toward solving my dilemma.


Thanks

PS, I don't know how to stop the ";"
