Long story short... home receiver inside the house, speaker wire ran all the way outside to some outdoor speakers... we put the music up loud so I can work on the truck in the backyard, and the music goes in and out randomly... usually lower higher lower higher... I can't really explain it.

Any ideas on what it could be? They play fine inside the house at the same time as the outside speakers. I have a DMM if I can test anything?

Running long distance with 8 ohm or 4 ohm usually requires a very large gauge of cable.

If it is because of loss, then it will be ok volume durring a non demanding range in the speaker and the drop off durring higher current parts of the music.

How long of a run is it? What type of speakers/amp? And what type of cable/size?
