Product Details

Harrison Labs 6 dB RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator Pair
Attenuators reduce the drive signal to an amplifier so that the input level or gain control can be adjusted in a more useful range. For example, if the line driver has an 8 volt output and the amplifier has a 100mV (0.1V) to 2 volt range of input level, the gain pots would have to be all the way down. A 12 dB attenuator would allow you to adjust the amp's gain control to about 1/2 rotation. Many home A/V receivers and basic amplifiers do not have input level controls and attenuators are also perfect for these applications. Sold in pairs. 24 kt gold over brass construction. One-year manfacturer warranty. Made in the U.S.A.

Harrison Labs 6 dB RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator Pair
Harrison Labs 6 dB RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator Pair is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Inline AttenuatorsI picked up a pair of -6db line level RCA attenuators for use in balancing two zones of my whole house music system. They are inline on the feed to a Carver AV64 Cathedral amplifier that produces 65 wpc x 4 @ 8 ohms. The zone needing attenuation was my kitchen and bathrooms. I needed more gain for the shop and patio zones, so used attenuators on the bathrooms & kitchen, then used the electronic crossover gains to correct the den. The system is 4 discreet zones now and a 5th zone will probably be added. I changed it over last year from a Russound bridging switch to discreet amplifier channels for all zones. These attenuators make it possible to really dial it in. So I can run speakers suited to each zone and not have to match sensitivity. Now when walking from room to room the volume is even and I can turn up the shop and patio zones to overcome background noise.These are high end quality components, professional or audiophile quality and well worth the cost when compared to others on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase EverOK, I just had to copy the suggested title.But- these attenuators are just what I needed!They allowed me to complete the installation of my Kenwood head unit in my Ford Edge. They were needed to connected my Ford SYNC USB audio to the rear A/V input of the unit. Without, the input was overdriven and sounded horrible. Now all is sweet. I guessed at the correct attenuation, 6db cuts the voltage in half I believe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs as DescribedMale plug is not snug, center pin needs to be longer. Additional mounting required (ty-wrap) to ensure product is secure and stays in place.My application for this Attenuator is to manage over driving VCR audio into a PC TV capture card.Product functions as described, would buy again, maybe 12db instead.

How many Harrison -6dB attenuators are needed going from CD to Integrated Amp?

Asked by: Tank5555
need more info to answer you. If you're attempting to use the speaker or headphone output from a boombox or Walkman and feed into a mic or phono input you might need to connect 6 or more in series! (and still only get lame results)
