Wired Home IWS-AB In Wall A-B Speaker Switch
Wired Home IWS-AB In Wall A-B Speaker Switch is rated 3.2857 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ground HumI tried to use this switch to feed one set of speakers from either of two different amplifiers--one a whole house audio system and the other a local in room amp so the kids could play their own music without having it in the whole house.Unfortunately the switch is not fully isolating. It uses a common ground as far as I can tell and thus I get a bad ground hum when used in this fashion.Stuck with it I guess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A waste of money.I thought I bought a switch to switch between two sets of speakers. The box says: "In-wall SPEAKER A-B switch"... but it does not switch between speakers A and B but between two amplifiers... who uses two amps?The directions show the front of the switch and not a wiring diagram for the back... and even then the connections shown do not match the terminals on the switch... they too are worthless.Bad experience all around...hole in my wall and $20 gone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very fragile itemWired switch using 16 gauge wire...wound up with the terminal pulling away from the circuit board, rendering product unable to work... I would suggest using wire no larger than 18 gauge... Perhaps then this product might prove to be worth the cost...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, butThe switch works well, but is somewhat fragile. Technically, the contacts will handle 14 AWG wire, but don't even think about using wire bigger than 18 AWG. The stiffness puts too much stress on the circuit board. Using 18 AWG, I had no problems, however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very goodAs advertised; performs well; well worth the modest price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job but needs better documentationDocumentation only shows two amps connected to one speaker pair. I suspect that many users want to connect one amp to two speaker pairs - which this switch will do. I will attempt to describe the connection diagram in words - hopefully someone will do a diagram. Looking at the switch from the back:Top connects to amplifier - Left + + Right -vertical rows of contacts connect to speakersLeft Right + +pair 1 pair 1 - - - -pair 2 pair 2 + +Hope this comes out in a readable form.Bob
