Product Details

Wired Home SS4 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 4 Out

The SS4 is a low-profile speaker selector that allows you to distribute a stereo speaker-level (amplified) signal to multiple listening zones. These speaker selectors feature a manually activated impedance protection circuit. The protection switch can be turned ON to prevent the impedance to your amplifier from dropping below 5 ohms, regardless of the number and impedance ratings of your speakers. The protection switch can be turned OFF when used as part of a system incorporating impedance matching volume controls, allowing you to get the most out of your amplifier.

The terminals on the rear of the speaker selector will accommodate up to 14 gauge cable; sufficient for cable runs exceeding 100 feet. For shorter distances, 16 ~ 18 gauge cable will suffice. For in-wall installations, we recommend using CL-2 or CL-3 rated cable for compliance with local building codes. If unsure, contact you local building inspector. When connecting a speaker and amplifier, it is important to maintain polarity; positive (+/red) to positive and negative (-/black) to negative. Be careful to maintain correct polarity between the amplifier, the speaker selector, the volume controls and the speakers. Power: 70 watts/channel impedance protection off, 140 watts/channel impedance protection on. Dimensions: 8-1/2" W x 2-1/8" H (with feet) x 5" D (including wire terminals and push buttons).

Wired Home SS4 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 4 Out
Wired Home SS4 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 4 Out is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small Speaker SelectorCurrently I am using this in an outside weather box for 3 pairs of speakers. I purchased a new amp/speakers and wanted the option of being able to control the load /ohms on the amp and also turn off any pair for quieter nighttime listening. The load on my amp was lower when not using the constant load switch so I have that off. The selector unit is heavy and robust and does get a little warm but hopefully will continue for years to come. Would I purchase it again if needed. Yes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than swapping cables.There was an acceptable change in audio quality on Klipsch Gallery speakers and the 50W class-T amp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economical SolutionNeeded a solution for multiple speakers from a single source. This unit matches the impedance and simplifies the wiring of multiple ceiling speakers from a single source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A speaker selector switch that worksReceived promptly. Packaged very well. Easy to install and works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ProductI bought this unit to replace a Radio Shack unit that died. Surprising heavy. Very good quality spring loaded connectors
Date published: 2014-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Speaker Audio SelectorGreat Speaker Selector. Excellent connectors. This unit replaced a Radio Shack unit that had connectors that were always loose and eventually failed. There are lots of units out there that use RCA connectors but as this is wired into the house I needed wire connectors. The unit is surprisingly heavy and well built. Works perfectly and the impedence selector will protect the stereo.

can any one tell me how to safely hook up my SS4 speaker selector Wired home or Dayton they have an input output and 4 channels i may be nuts but why should  there be an  output along  with the 4 output channel ?? thanks  for your help

Asked by: lacguy
The output is simply a pass-through connection since the SS4 occupies the outputs from your receiver for the connections. The other four outputs are the switched outputs that have selectable impedance matching option.

So would there be any problem running two pair of small ADS L200C speakers through this switch? Amp is 115 WPC Denon PMA-1315R.  Can I run them off the B speaker output of the amp and still keep my AR-3a's running off the A output? 

Asked by: JBaudiophile
Usually when a receiver has A and B outputs and both are used, the impedance is combined for both. The receiver will have to safely handle a 4 ohm load in order for it to be connected this way.

Can I damage my receiver by running too many pairs of speakers at once? I am thinking of using the SS4 with an older 45wpc receiver to switch between remote speakers. If I accidentally run 3 or 4 pairs at once can it damage the receiver?

Asked by: Luddite
This is designed to match the impedance and maintain a safe 8 ohm load assuming 8 ohm speakers are hooked up to it.
