Product Details

Wired Home SS8 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 8 Out

The SS8 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: 100 watts/channel impedance protection off, 200 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 SS8 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 8 Out
Wired Home SS8 Speaker Selector Impedance Matching 1 In 8 Out is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit10 years ago, I bought a Niles speaker selector-it was that or a Radio Shack whatever. The Niles has 6 speaker selectors, this one has eight, for less than half the cost. And it also has a protection circuit, as does the Niles. This unit has been in use now for 3 weeks, in use for 16 hours a day, in a tavern. Great unit.

how to hook up speaker selector/300-974 to a 5 to1 amp.

Asked by: ron48
You can only use the front left and right channels in the receiver to be able to connect to a speaker selector like this.

What electrical characteristics are available on the "Speaker Output" terminals?

My other speaker selectors don't have such terminals marked as such. The manual doesn't mention them other than showing a photo.
Asked by: ccweems
You may have to rephrase the question as it is a little vague. The outputs are spring thermals which generally will except up to 14 awg wire. It is a resistor based impedance matching device which will show the amp about a 6 ohm load at all times. It is important to follow the instructions on proper set up to the t. The output power will be about 30% of the power from the amp due to the resisters and distributed evenly to like speakers that are connected. Hope this is of assistance answering your question
