Hi guys...
Finishing my basement and I want to use my home theatre receiver's (Pio 1020) Zone 2 output to power 4 in-ceiling speakers in the rec room.
I'm sure this is a silly question to those more knowledgable, but would it be possible to "split" (or double wire) 2 speakers to each one of the receiver's stereo Zone 2 ouputs?
The 4 speakers will mainly be used for background music, so they don't have to blast full power. The reason I want to use 4 speakers instead of 2 is for better sound distribution (the rec room area is pretty big).

Thanks for the tip.
Just curious: If I wire them in series, will the speaker downstream get less power than the one upstream (and hence have lower sound volume)?

Thank you all... I will try in series.
Only thing that confused me in the original link (which seemed targetted towards car amps/speakers) is alternating the + / - cables between the speakers.
