Product Details

Wired Home SS6 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 6 Out

The SS6 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: 17" W x 2-1/8" H (with feet) x 5" D (including wire terminals and push buttons).

Wired Home SS6 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 6 Out
Dayton Audio SS6 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 6 Out is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does it's jobWhat more can you say about a speaker switch? It does what is advertised. The biggest knock are the connectors. Spring terminals given this product a really cheap feeling, and hooking up six pairs of speakers using them is pretty frustrating - some sort of connector like banana plugs or connectors with set screws would be nicer, but the price is right on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always, another great product at a great priceI've been using Parts Express now for 4+ years for all of my A/V accessories and many of the Dayton products they offer. They've never let me down, and niether does this switch. I use all the Dayton switches, and they are great. I would recommend an amplifier if you plan on using more than 2 pairs of speakers simultaneously to take the load off of your HT Receiver. But that has nothing to do with the switch. My recommendation stands for all brands of the same product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well BuiltI've owned and used this for several months now. Don't let the price fool you. This is a very solid, well built unit that works exactly as described. Impedence protection button will prevent your receiver/amp from blowing up if you're running several sets of speakers. I highly reccommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Solid Piece of EquipmentI originally intended to order the SS4 model. Instead I perhaps made a overkill with the SS6 model. Anyhow, setup was a no brainer. Attach the left/right cables from the amplifier to the input terminals of the SS6. Also attach speaker cables to input output terminals of SS6. Took around 10 minutes to correctly separate a subwoofer, set of EPI bookshelf speakers, set of Bose 141 speakers with still room to spare. Still cannot figure out where in the 2nd input terminal coming from a separate amplifier should be. Perhaps there isn't another input but rather a set of output terminals to probably another speaker selector box? Anyhow, I can now select each speaker separately or play them all at once depending on the situation. Good solid product much comparable to what was selling at BB for twice as much and identical features. Right now, we have a choice of selecting the right set of speakers plus subwoofer for classical, jazz, rock and all sorts of music and video. Truly amazing.

What are the Specs?

How many RMS watts will this device handle per channel with and without the protection and does it add any distortion or cut the frequency response and/or the volume? TIA
Asked by: LEDm
Power: 70 watts/channel impedance protection off, 140 watts/channel impedance protection on.I apologize for the oversight, I have added the power rating and dimensions to the web site copy. I also added the user manual for your reference.

Definition of RMS?

When it says "Power: 70 watts/channel impedance protection off, 140 watts/channel impedance protection on" is it talking about input RMS or output RMS?In other words, would this handle 500W of amplification over 6 speakers - 500/6 = 83W per speakeror would that exceed the rating because it is over 140W on the input (500W > 140W)?I hope my question is clear. Thank you.
Asked by: Nickolas
Each channel handles 140 watts with the protection on. With the senario you mentioned at 83 watts per channel you will be fine.
