Indoor/Outdoor speaker setup

I have a 5.1 channel speaker setup in my living room. Is there a way I can run a switch or something to run some outdoor speakers with the same receiver?

Indoor/Outdoor speaker setup

Some receivers have an A/B channel switch for the front mains - check and see if yours does. If so, no extra equipment required.

If not, you'll need a speaker selector. About $15-$20 for a standard one, $50-$75 if you want volume control. They should be available anywhere, but here is monoprice: http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...&cs_id=1090305
