Product Details

RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator 6 dB
When a signal is overdriven it will cause distortion and needs to be attenuated to improve the signal quality. Many home A/V receivers and basic amplifiers do not have input level controls. Attenuators can be used to adjust the level. Very helpful in auto sound and home theater installations. Sold individually.

RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator 6 dB
RCA Line Level Audio Attenuator 6 dB is rated 3.3077 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for what I needed.The equipment I intended to use this with had inherent hum and when I added these attenuators, the hum got worse. They may have a use at some time in the future but not for this equipment. I ended up having to load the circuit down using capacitors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as described.I was curious about these relative to the high-priced Harrison attenuators.They are as described by R. Meredith back in 2008. The internal attenuator is an "H" configuration made up of four 100 ohm resistors and one 800 ohm resistor. So, they will attenuate in either hook up direction but with much less (approximately 2db) attenuation than the advertised 6db, with nominal resistance loads.Best/cheapest bet for this requirement is to build your own attenuators with two resistors sized based on load resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RCA 6 DB Line Level AttenuatorWorked as expected. An inexpensive way to handle high line levels. Why pay more?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very handy add-onalways good to be able to attenuate before too-sensitive preamps and power amps. one problem is this unit is a little wide (the plastic housing) and this often rubs against its mate or actually pushes it off-center a bit when the stereo inputs are close together, which is invariably the case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but fragileI've used them to attenuate line out of my higher end CD player on my vintage receiver Tape input. Sonically I can't complain and don't notice any kind of compromise. Only complaint is that they are fragile. I managed to break off the center pin on one so now I have to order another. The price is definitely right!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from REDUCES HIGH SOURCE INPUT LEVELS!Solved a high level input problem that caused amp to shut down only on CD palyer. Compared to variable attenuator on market from well known name brand at 20 times the price of this item.

Barrel diameter

Curious about the diameter/thickness/what-have-you of the molded plastic center section.Lots of mentions of size, but no measurements in the reviews.
Asked by: Firestorm252
About 9/16": it varies a little due to the plastic casting process.

I tried using a pair of these to reduce the line level output of a mixing board to the line in of a recorder-and for some reason the stereo mix is combined to mono. This makes no sense-take them out of signal path,full stereo. Please help...
