Hi,
How can i set up my amp to run both 5 channel surround sound speakers and out door speakers (not at the same time).

I have found switches to swap between speakers but not sure how that works with a surround sound system.

Thanks Muz

not sure how that works with a surround sound system.
...and nobody here is likely to be any more sure than you Muz - because it's not a normal thing to do.

Presumably you want 2-channel stereo outside. In which case you'd need a switcbox to switch between your internal (main) and external pairs - after selecting 2-channel stereo mode (if your amp has that?).

Whether or not the amp would allow you to mute the unwanted indoor speakers, I don't know.
I do know that I would find another way to get outdoor sound if I was you 👍

A large part will depend on your amp, I regularly use Zone 2 for outdoor speakers with my Denon AVR and can either have it just playing outdoors or inside as well.

Maybe let us know what amp you've got?
