I have two “Polk Audio Patio 200” outdoors hooked on a Sonos Connect. It covers one area of the yard really well. I have another area of the yard that I would like to cover, only a few feet away from the left Polk speaker. We can hear the music but I'd have to crank it up high, which is not cool for the neighboors.
The simpest idea would be to extend the speaker wires out to a third speaker, but part of me tells me it's a stupid idea:
- I'd only get the left side of the stereo (which might be acceptable- I don't expect high audio quality there, I already have indoors for that).
- The sonos amp would have to power two left speakers with the same output vs one right speaker. I could also get 2 new speakers so at least it's even on each side.
I am pretty much posting here for someone to confirm it is stupid…
If so, then what are my options? I could get a standalone Sonos, but Sonos don't do outdoor speakers (It's out of the rain but don't know how long a Play One would survive outside) and I expect a small delay compared to the other two Polk which might get annoying.
Is there a better alternative?
