I recently moved into a two story house with existing outdoor speakers facing my backyard pool. The pair of speakers are mounted 30 feet apart under the roofline. I initially bought a Connect:Amp to power the speakers but with some testing it seemed like I had to be pretty far back in the yard to hear both channels. I returned the sonos as other projects came up that were more pressing.
Now I am revisiting the problem. Since there is no way to make the Connect:Amp convert stereo to mono in software, I have found an option to connect a stereo to mono converter between a Connect and a third party receiver. That way, I will have uniform sound no matter where I am in the yard.
How have others solved this problem? Am I over complicating the issue? Should I just live with the Connect:amp for simplicity sake?
