So, my pool was finished at the end of last year. We had the electrician run an extra pipe for low voltage wiring out by the pool.
I bought a pair of rock speakers and I want to wire them up soon. How do people usually wire these up? I was going to run a pair of (I think I have 12 gauge) speaker wire from inside my house, into the conduit (which starts right outside my house, near the pool equipment) to the electrical post by the pool (well, in the planters by the pool). I was thinking that I would need a outdoor speaker "wall plate" of sorts, so that the wire from inside isn't going directly to the speakers. Is that necessary? Or do people wire these things directly to their speakers to their inside? (I wired my house for ethernet, and I certainly didn't wire from the router, through the walls, out the wall, directly to my computers).
Additionally, anyone have good suggestions for compact amplifier I can use for my 2 speakers (http://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/rock ... rx805.html)? I don't need some giant "Home Theater" receiver, I am just going to take stereo output from my computer (roughly speaking) and amplify that. Extra bonus points if I could control volume remotely, but that isn't a requirement.
Thanks in advance.
