What are the dimensions of this unit?
Dimensions: 8-1/2" W x 2-1/8" H (with feet) x 5" D (including wire terminals and push buttons).

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

Is the SS4 Selector Reversable, i.e. Use As Amplifier Selector?
I want to share a single powered subwoofer between two audio systems. In this configuration I would attach Amp 1 speaker out to SS4 Output 1 and Amp 2 speaker out to SS4 Output 2. Subwoofer attach to SS4 Input. Route desired amp to subwoofer by selecting 1 or 2 on SS4.Depending on the electronics (e.g. only switches and resistors) the SS4 may handle the signal in reverse. Can anyone speak to the SS4 electronics? Or has anyone tried this already with the SS4?I understand the risks of driving two amps into the SW at once.
Unfortunately no, this is only functional in one direction.

Can this be used to turn on zone 1, then turn off zone 1 and turn on zone 2?
I have 2 pairs of 4 ohm speakers, and my little bookshelf unit can't handle that I don't think - at least both at the same time - one at a time, it can. Sets of speakers to be placed in nearby areas and not used together, at one time. Receiver is rated 40w/ch and came with one set of the 4 ohm speakers. Would anything be different if I replaced one set of 4 ohm speakers with 6-8 ohm speakers instead?
The best thing to do is get a bigger amp/receiver these days amps put out 100 watts p/ch is standard. 40watts is not going to cut it, also when you have 4 speakers that are all low in ohms, some amps/rec don't like all that low ohm loads, so looking for a bigger amp is better you could do damage to the amp if you keep using it in this way...PE has a wide range of amps/receivers...
