    the receiver model is yamaha rxv1800; the speakers are 8ohm impedance, the speaker is two cables of 22 guage combined together; the volume control is 15watts with 8ohm impedance.

    the speaker in each is going to be heard at the normal listening level, it wont be extremely loud. the volume control as per our installer is the one with the transformer. the system will be running for upto 10 to 12 hrs. yes some speakers might be turned off but i would like this setup to configured for the 8 speakers to be working simultaneously. Well we are good with mono so pls let us know what can we do

    There are a few issues that you may encounter trying to do this,mostly to do with looking after the amp.... not overloading it. It can be done, but there are some things that I need to talk to you about first. 

    1. how loud may the speaker in each room be required to go.

    2. You say 15 watt 8 ohm vol  control. Is it a resistive wirewound type

    3. what periods of use do you intend to run the system in the 8 speaker configuration. 

    4. Will some of the speakers required to be turned off at times.

    5. Are you still seeking stereo in each room. 
    If you are able to answer these questions, we can come up with a solution for you.

    Stereo sound requires two speakers per room, a left channel and a right channel. You can combine the two channels into one channel and play both channels through one speaker per room, but it is no longer stereo, it's mono.

    All you need to do is hook wires up to the front left and front right speaker connections on the receiver. Connect your left front red wire and your right front red wire together, then your left front black wire and your right front black wire together. Leave enough wire so you can splice eight pairs of wire onto the wires coming from the receiver. Each room will have one pair of wires going to it, one black one red. Place the speaker in the room and connect one wire to the black terminal and one to the red terminal. That's it.

Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and wires

Control room out issues

There is a volume control where you select the source of the control room signals. There is NOT a slider type fader. The same pot that controls the phones varies the control room speakers.

You could also use one of the AUX to drive your control room speakers, however they are usually used to drive the stage monitors.

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.

The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

I have a Denon 2308CI. I use the 7.1 suround. I have my sony STR DE995 to use as a second amp for zone two hook up. My goal is to watch a movie in the living room and listen to the radio or any other audio...

the mani surround room should be connected to the front speakers A, Center, sub pre-out and surround.
for the other two rooms connect them to surround/back, go into settings and in power amp assignment assign the surround back speakers to the multi room.
once this is complete with your remote in the zone2 control mode you can play your sources in zone2 and control the volume also, if you have inwall volume controls set the zone2 volume to -10 and use the room controls.
To listen to the same source in both zones you will have to select that source in both zones

Most amps will only power two sets of speakers direcrly hooked to amp (A&B). If you want audio throughout the house, I would recommend a PA system set up with individual room volume controls
