Yes that is fine. You can get speakers that are designed to go in damp and humid places."

"Yes it's fine, speakers are generally IP22 rated so as long as they aren't next to the hob they will be fine and won't have a problem.

"Will be fine, most speakers are low voltage and as for steam you could always fit a bathroom rated one"

"Good evening. Yes you can wire surround sound speakers in the kitchen. We tend to install ceiling speakers, or we use sonos free standing speakers"

"Yes, Sonos are the most easiest and simple setup. They have an IP rated speaker which can be moved to the outside.

Hope this helps
