Please correct my problem..
2 outdoor speakers under porch (8 ohm)
2 rock speakers at pool Outdoor speaker Depot (8 ohm)
2 independent volume controllers from Outdoor Speaker Depot
Both have long runs- 100' feet. Used 14 gauge buried in conduit
Pioneer VSX-523-K Receiver (FRONT STEREO 80W + 80W) power output 140W per channel (5 channel)
I currently have the pool speakers wired to the front posts and the porch speakers wired to the surround posts. The volume controllers are between the speakers and receiver. Each speaker is wired to the respectable positive and neg terminal corresponding to the side they are on.
Problem is the amp gets hot too the point of shutting down... in under 5 mins.. I tried using a speaker selector wired from the "front" posts and connecting the speakers off that but that didn't help...
Let me know any hints or ideas...
