Stay tuned for more on this whole home amp as well as a comparison of this and the dayton audio dax66 amplifier. Also stay tuned for my 2018 smart home install!

https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=10761 This is a VERY good whole home audio amplifier. For the money and quality it is superb over other systems. It’s ease of installation puts it up high on the list, and unfortunately not many know about this kind of a system. Similar systems like this can easily be 2x or 3x in cost, maybe even more.

I forgot to talk more about my ceiling speakers, these are the indoor ceiling speakers that i used, and i would recommend them. Amazing sound quality!! They are by dayton audio — Many people recommend them. https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-cs620c-6-1-2-2-way-ceiling-speaker-pair–300-402

For my outdoor speakers i also used dayton audio — https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-io655b-6-1-2-2-way-indoor-outdoor-speaker-pair-black–310-012

The speaker wire i used (i’d recommend the 14 guage though):https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=2817

The cat 6 cable i used in my parents (i used regular cat5e though, it doesnt really matter): https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=8103

The RG6 cable that i used for cable tv runs, and my RCA runs: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Southwire-500-ft-18-RG6-Quad-Shield-CU-CATV-CM-CL2-Coaxial-Cable-in-Black-56918445/202316309

Keystone Wall plate (you can get ones with more or less holes): https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=6727

Keystone wall jacks (you can get any kind of wall jacks including hdmi, ethernet etc…): https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=6550

All in all, i spent roughtly $850 to install this system. Labor was free since i did it all myself, however if you’ve never gotten up in the attic and know how to run wire, this type of a job would be a little challenging, but not impossible. I was able to save a little money due to the fact that i already had speaker wire from another install that i did.

    Thanks for the detailed video! Could you please advise different devices that can be added to wirelessly (bluetooth/airplay) play music and also is there a way to add USB as a source. I have Dax66. Thank you!

  2. 007stilts on November 20, 2021 at 10:56 am

    I’m trying to figure out what kind of imput the TV would use. Can I go HDMI to digital optical? Or is it best to just run the rca?

  3. Rob Steal on November 20, 2021 at 11:02 am

    What a mess, could of just used Sonos. Less work, less equipment to buy.

  4. David MacPherson on November 20, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Awesome video! Been waiting to pull the trigger on a purchase before I gathered information. Found all I needed here.

  5. Lucas Boninsegna on November 20, 2021 at 11:05 am

    impressive

  6. Manjit Singh Saini on November 20, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Hi bud so how many speakers I can connect in one zone

  7. Lone Wolf on November 20, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Did you have this installed while the house was being built? If not how could i do this on a house already built? Thanks great video!

  8. Austin Georgenson on November 20, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Very informative video. I am looking to do this to my house. So how are the wall controllers wired to the amplifier/receiver? I got the Ethernet cable but confused how that all connects to the amplifier.

  9. Victor Sedano on November 20, 2021 at 11:11 am

    can I use these models together # 10761 with model # 39261 master and slave?

  10. qreaigh on November 20, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Can you use an echo dot as an input device?

  11. Ryan Martinez on November 20, 2021 at 11:16 am

    How to I hook up tv to receiver? RCA cables with a adapter? And Ethernet cord you need a splitter? Can you send me some links? Thanks great video I’m getting mine this week

  12. Richard Pierre on November 20, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Great informative video, given that it’s a few years later could you tell me if you are still happy with this unit?

  13. Steven Black on November 20, 2021 at 11:17 am

    We have been enjoying our monoprice whole house setup for over a year now with a massive thanks to yourself with your video and guidance but have hit a problem which I hope is minor. Just upgraded from the iPhone X to the 13pro and with the contract package I get free Apple Music but for some reason I’m unable to see chrome cast on the AirPlay options and simultaneously cannot find the chrome cast audio app or even find it in the App Store. Any ideas what my options might be?

  14. Abdelkader Elbachir on November 20, 2021 at 11:18 am

    Very nice

  15. GS on November 20, 2021 at 11:18 am

    can this also be connected to a mic so lets say if i have to call the entire family members in different rooms for dinner they all can hear ?

  16. FamousJS09 on November 20, 2021 at 11:20 am

    This is very nice.

  17. No name on November 20, 2021 at 11:22 am

    Dude, I got motion sick from watching this video.

  18. carl anderson on November 20, 2021 at 11:22 am

    I like your video very informative. Like the step-by-step. Those outlets in the wall what are they called and where did you get them? I’m trying to do the same thing now but I’m having a hard time finding those things.

  19. Richard Gonza on November 20, 2021 at 11:22 am

    QUESTION ON EVERYONES MIND… HOW MUCH TOTAL?

  20. catinodeh on November 20, 2021 at 11:23 am

    How does the input in each keypad work ? Is it 3.5mm ? Will the input play on the zone the keypad is configured right after you plug it in ? I’m asking because I see that you added RCA to one of your walls. What not use the keypad instead ?

  21. Portland Local Church on November 20, 2021 at 11:23 am

    How high do you mount the touchpads? I would guess up at eye level or close to that??

  22. Victor Rodriguez on November 20, 2021 at 11:25 am

    Hey man, I just ordered the monoprice audio amplifier and the soundavo 8 inch speakers to pair with them thanks for the discount code btw. Am I going to have to bridge the amplifier to be able to use the speakers with the monoprice amp? or can I run the 2 8 inch speakers on the 4 ohm 50 w left and right for one zone? The soundavo say they are 8 ohm 60 w. Also how can I get audio from my tv to amplifier without a rca out of the tv? I am currently using arc to my soundbar for audio out at the moment. Would I have to change the audio out of the tv to like optical out and run a optical cable to amp so I can hear tv that way through my speakers?

  23. MsDemiT3 on November 20, 2021 at 11:25 am

    LOVE your music selection!!

  24. Rey Reyna on November 20, 2021 at 11:27 am

    Great video… my home has speakers in every room also wall plate with just mic and volume control.. i dont think i can change zones… all wiring goes to 1 closet just dont know what amplifier or reciever to use..

  25. Dr Champ on November 20, 2021 at 11:27 am

    I like your set up, i’m thinking about doing something similar. One question, in the main room, i want to run a home theater set of speakers and I was thinking using the Monoprice controller that you have and feed Zone 1/ Source 1/Music into my home theatre receiver where it will route the sound to all 5.1 speakers in the main room. The other rooms, those stereo speakers can just connect directly to this controller. Does this Monoprice have the line out? Would that work? Does the keypad control the line out volume as well? Thanks

  26. Derrick Antwi on November 20, 2021 at 11:29 am

    Will you still recommend this amp and speaker or is there a newer one you would recommend? Your video is awesome, by the way!!!!

  27. Luzt on November 20, 2021 at 11:29 am

    Very informative. Thank you.

  28. Bongo Connection on November 20, 2021 at 11:31 am

  29. ثروت عبد العال on November 20, 2021 at 11:33 am

  30. Scotty Boy on November 20, 2021 at 11:36 am

  31. Chilly_Willy007 on November 20, 2021 at 11:36 am

    You have my dream house..
    Beautiful sound. Congrats

  32. Scrap Life on November 20, 2021 at 11:37 am

    Great video, very helpful! What is the name of the song???

  33. GdepV on November 20, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Hello, for your patio keypad input. What are brand/item to you are using protect the keypad from the weather? I can’t find it. If you can please share the link to it.

  34. Giovanni dinunzio on November 20, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Because all my speaker wires are in a tight spot & my AVR doesn’t fit ? So do I half to rewrite all of it ??

  35. Jerry Howard on November 20, 2021 at 11:40 am

    I like this but having to go to each panel in each zone seems very outdated when a smart amp could do this from an app wirelessly.

  36. pottertja00 on November 20, 2021 at 11:41 am

    Now that google discontinued the chromecast audio, what alternative would you recommend?

  37. AnandKumar Lad on November 20, 2021 at 11:42 am

    very nice

  38. Dan Rupert on November 20, 2021 at 11:43 am

    How does stereo sound work when you have two speakers on one channel?

  39. Adrian Colin on November 20, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Hi, very thorough and informative videos. I watched your whole amp and pre-wired journey. I want to set up something similar and want to ask if you know if it’s possible to multipurpose 5 ceiling speakers that are already wired to a 5.1 surround sound receiver and use them through zone 1 on an amp through the receiver while watching TV, but also use them independently through a different zone in which they are directly wired to the amp on a different zone. I guess I would do to sets of wiring, one from speaker to receiver and the other one from the speaker to the amp. Can that be done? Is there a better way? Is there a risk with double powering the speakers?

  40. Aldin A on November 20, 2021 at 11:47 am

    Can you please explain how the coaxial cables terminate at the source end? How do you go from coaxial to the red and white RCA input. I’ve been much research but can’t find out what you did here. Thanks

  41. Peter on November 20, 2021 at 11:47 am

    i am trying to connect my system when ever i connect my speaker output i get no audio out to my speakers. Monoprice 6 Zone Home Audio Passive Multizone Controller Preamp Kit, NO LOGO what am i doing wrong

  42. wyatt moe on November 20, 2021 at 11:48 am

    Do you need both RCA cables or can you use 1 on this system?

  43. Princess Fatima on November 20, 2021 at 11:48 am

    Hi can I get the wiring diagram for your home setup.

  44. MilwaukeeMax on November 20, 2021 at 11:48 am

    All that and no acknowledgement of the cute dog following you around??

  45. carles aldrich depaudhon on November 20, 2021 at 11:48 am

    can I install this on my home audio pre wired system?

  46. Victor Sedano on November 20, 2021 at 11:48 am

    what model this is?

  47. Ether on November 20, 2021 at 11:49 am

    This is what you call over kill

  48. Brian Cook on November 20, 2021 at 11:50 am

    I’m probably an idiot here but, where do I find a list of what products you used here! This is awesome, I have an entertainer coach I’d love to do this in.

  49. Giovanni dinunzio on November 20, 2021 at 11:51 am

    Hey do I half to plug my speakers in to the AVR ? Or is there a Device I can plug them in to ?

  50. nen.user. on November 20, 2021 at 11:52 am

    Shouldve made a video on you doing this instead of just showing us how it works. That’s the real reason most people are here. Looks good though, nice work.
