Connecting 4 outdoor speakers to Sony STR-K502 Receiver

I have a Sony Str-k502 Digital Theater 5.1 Stereo Receiver ( and my wife bought me 4 outdoor rock speakers ( Could i use this receiver to connect these speakers? I was planning on running two 12 gauge wires, each connected to 2 speakers in parrallel. Where would I connect the two wires in the back of the receiver? In the surround speaker outputs? Does it matter which one is Left and Right? I'm not very knowledgeable on this so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Read about the "multi-channel" connection and setup.

I believed that should be the way. Good listening!

About left and right.

I only see that matters when there is a video involved. As in the train goes from left to right and the sound follows. For almost all but the purists it doesn't matter.
