Ceiling speakers cutting out


Standard Member

Our electrician has wired 4 ceiling speakers to 1 channel on my Yamaha RXA660 amplifier. He has also wired 2 outdoor speakers to a single zone B channel. I think the electrician has wired them in via daisy chain/parallel method. Problem i'm having is the amplifier seems to struggle putting volume through the speakers, and when you go too loud it cuts out and says 'check sp wires'. The amplifier is 8 ohms, as are all of the speakers, and its meant to push 80 watts per channel.

Do you think the wiring is correct? To me it seems like there is not enough power as i have 4 speakers to 1 channel and 2 outdoor speakers to a single zone B channel. Any thoughts?
