My unit uses Jenson speakers which are small cubes inside and ovoid shaped outside.
My first thought was that the exterior speakers had one speaker with positive and negative reversed which would account for the difference in volume.
The Concertone system uses 6" (5) in the lounge area and (2) in the bedroom all the same size speakers inside. with 4" on the outside. Positive and negative has nothing to do with it. I even tried that and also asked Bob Fields about it, they do not have the power to produce any quality sound, they are rated at 25 watt, the 6" I think are 75 watt you need to check the Cruchfield site. It has nothing to do with blasting the outside it has to do with balance through out the system. I enjoy clear sounding music. NOT LOUD MUSIC. If you read my post #3 you will read that now my wife can watch TV and I can hear quality sound outside. We could not do that before. First I thought they had a volume reducer installed but Bob Fields is the one who told me what the problem was and how to solve it. I don't know where this blasting came from. The question was why do you have to turn the volume up so high to hear the music outside. The reason is that FR choose to go cheap and put 25 watt speakers outside. When I asked FR they said that the 6" where no longer available for outside. Both Concertone and Cruthfield sells them on there web site also looks just like the 4" but are 6" you just can't add any speaker being the wall is only 2" thick.
