Did you use the same terminals or two different ones to make the connections?

Is there anyway to get an amplified signal to my zone two speakers without an additional amplifier? Should I be using the Speaker "B" outputs?


Check your speaker setup menu to make sure that zone 2 is enabled. Also, a lot of receivers only allow analog inputs to be used for zone 2, so if you are using something like hdmi, or optical than this might be the problem.

Pioneer VSX 1020K - Zone 2 Setup


I referred to a similar zone 2 arrangement for a Yamaha receiver. It shows a separate amplifier and notes that only analog signals are sent to zone 2. The analog output from a source must be connected to the analog input on your Pioneer unit for zone 2 to work. Your outdoor music environment will be limited to left and right front speakers and...alas...no surround

If your satellite box is connected using a digital cable to the 601 receiver you won't get any sound through zone 2.Zone 2 can process only analogue sound ( inputs ).

We wired our new home to have outdoor speakers and also speakers to our pool room. Before putting the receiver back into place after wiring the back, we quickly touched a speaker's wires to the wires...


It's not really clear if all of this is Zone 2 or not, or if you intend a second program to play in Zone 2.

If your Zone 2 is to a powered amplifier and its speakers the Zone 2 output would be FIXED (not variable from the host TX-SR705), that is, at a level that the receiving amplifier would control.

Page 99 deals with it.

Having just passive speakers in Zone 2 requires you to set Zone 2 to "ACT(ive)".

Hi I want to add 2 extra speakers (for outdoors) to my Pioneer VSX-519V and see in the manual that I require a separate amplifier. Why is that necessary & if so can you recommend one please ? Thank...


Technically, you dont need an additional amplifier to run another set of speakers. This amplifier has a second zone output option. What you need to do is connect your outdoor speakers to the second zone on the reciever, than you can turn it on and select the desired source from your remote.

No zone 2 sound coming from yamaha amp rx-v861


Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,

Zone 2 connections


go into your amp settings menu then to speaker settings,set zone 2 on and main on, turn up the volume for zone 2 about half way then connect phono cables from zone 2 pre out to a input on the external amp (eg cd input )
never use the phono input this is for turntables,connect this amp to your speaker switch/selector then to speakers.

hope this helps
