I have pretty much made up my mind to go with either 2 or 4 Definitive Technology AW 6500 outdoor speakers. The plan is to start with 2 and see how it sounds and then add 2 more if needed. These speakers can handle 200 watts each. The impedance is rated at 4-8 Ohms.
I have read a few people running 2 and some that are even running 4 of these speakers on a single Sonos Connect:AMP. However, it appears this amp is only rated at 55 watts per channel which seems pretty low for speaker that can handle 200 watts. I spoke with Crutchfield and they recommended using the Sonos Connect with a Yamaha R-S700 stereo receiver that provides 100 watts per channel and only 2 of the speakers.
Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated.
What would your choose for 2 of these speakers?
1. Sonos Connect:AMP
2. Sonos Connect with a separate stereo receiver? If so, what receiver?
3. Sonos Connect with A/V receiver? If so, what receiver?
What would you choose for 4 of these speakers?
1. One Sonos Connect:AMP
2. Two Sonos Connect:AMPs
2. Sonos Connect with a separate stereo receiver or receivers? If so, what receiver?
3. Sonos Connect with A/V receiver or receivers? If so, what receiver?
