Rated 1 out of 5 by from RCA Line Level AttenuatorThis was DOA! ZERO STARS! Didn't work at all. Dead silence when connected.Obviously a piece of junk. ($9+ down the drain.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works good with no sound lossIt works good but they are too wide to place side by side at the Cd player so an additional set of RCA cables needed to be placed inline, no biggie. No sound detail lossed with using them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed Wii audio outputWii audio output was too strong and clipped at the amp input. This fixes it. Cheap and easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Physical sizeThe body of the attenuator is large enough to cause two such devices, side-by-side, to push each other off the centerlines of two parallel RCA jacks due to the spacing of the jacks on many consumer items. Slimmer diameter would be better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe I got a bad batch . . .I bought two of these. One didn't pass any signal at all (a meter showed it was disconnected inside) and the other was very noisy. Couldn't be much worse. Spend the extra dough on some better ones.

RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator 3 dB

can they be connected together to achieve more attenuation?

It seems possible if it's just resistors inside... but whether or not a -3db with a -6db unit together makes -9db, (or any other combination,) could use some clarification.i've read that if they are used in reverse, they attenuate less. other than being less effective, (which could be handy, like getting 2 in 1,) would there be any real negative (sound degrading/equipment harming) side-effects?also, in which direction are they meant to be used? (ie. does current flow from male to female?) i'm sure i could figure it out with a multi-meter or listening test, but they're still in the mail for a few days.... i'd just like to be able to plan my cables and what have ya, so there's no surprises.thanks in advance!
Asked by: YmirLifer
Yes these can be used together to get more attenuation. -3db + -3db=-6db. -3db+-6db=-9db in either direction. My only concern is that two of these units "piggybacked" would make an easy break of one or both of the RCA male plugs once a cable is connected. Other than that it should be fine.
