Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well, Easy to InstallThis item was easy to install. The Phoenix connectors made it convenient. While the unit was a tight fit in a standard electrical box, it was not terribly difficult to fit it in. Just don't leave too much excess wire in the box.The control works well and does not seem to affect the sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FantasticVolume controls work great!I like the different colored plates sent. So If i repaint room to different color, i can change wall plates too without paying more.

Wired Home VRS100 Impedance Matching Rotary Speaker Volume Control 100W

hi, please clarify ,what is the purpose of those  jumpers X1, X2 etc

Asked by: proarun
The jumpers need to reflect the number of volume controls in the system. For example, with one control it will stay on x1, with two it will need to be moved to x2, etc.

Looking to wire two sets of 8ohm speakers to a receiver, one direct and the second through this volume control.  If the desired impedance at the receiver is 6-10ohms (preferably 6-8) how would you jumper the VRS100 switch (1x, 2x, 4x, 8x) ?

Asked by: tpremo
With only one volume control the jumper needs to be on 1x.

Question regarding the impedance match?

What load is seen by the amplifier? If I run parallel speaker wires from an amp to 4 of these units, what will be the load seen by the amp? If it is a typical resistive load what is the rating for each volume control? Thanks.
Asked by: JAudio
Assuming all 8 ohm speakers, the load seen by the amplifier can be anywhere between 4-8 ohms.

Please clear up label circuit board confusion

What label is correct? Circuit board or Amp/Speaker Connection label?
Asked by: warofman
The sticker and circuit board labels should be the same front to back. There is a possibility the sticker was installed upside down. In this case follow the circuit board labels.

Do you have a dual mounting wall plate for this control?

Asked by: Chris Adler
Any standard dual-gang Decora-style wall plate will accommodate two of the VSR100s, yes.
