Features & Specifications

Save on costs without skimping on sound with the 6 Zone Multi-room Audio Kit for Housewide Audio available at Outdoor Speaker Depot. You can fill your entire home with rich-sounding audio that includes a high current amplifier, volume controls and a speaker selector. The type of music you favor should influence the type of speaker you use with this easily installed audio kit: choose the Custom Series for easy listening, High Definition series to bring out bass or Kevlar Series for critical listening that accentuates every minute detail in a recording. The 6 Zone Multi-room Audio Kit allows you to control the volume in each room from the volume control in that room, so you can connect just about any source that uses RCA and/or a 3.5mm cable, such as an iPhone, iPad, laptop or CD Player. Order from Outdoor Speaker Depot on a weekday and your kit should ship out the same day the order is placed.

How to choose the right speaker size?
Choosing speakers based on room size is quite simple. Our 5 1/4" speakers are great for smaller rooms (150 sq ft room or less). If the room is larger, go with a 6 1/2" speakers, and rooms greater than 400 sq ft will benefit from our 8" models.

What speaker type should I choose?
This depends on your budget and what kind of performance you expect from speakers. Our Custom Series speakers are great for background level to easy listening music. If you like your tunes on the louder side and prefer deep bass, think about our High Definition series. If you are a top-of-the-line type of listener who hears every little detail, you will love our Kevlar series speakers. The Kevlar series has the best overall sound and is suitable for critical listening such as home theater use and for the audiophile listeners. We also have Trimless models for those who wish to have the speakers that blend in with the decor.

Kit comes included with:
(1) AMP300 amplifier
(1) ISS6 speaker selector
(6) SVC100 volume controls.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Don Oxenrider from Columbus, Ohio on September 7, 2012
Do I need to have all 6 zones hooked up? I only have 4 zones and the 4 zone system is out of stock. Can I use plain speaker wire?
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 14, 2012

Answer:
Hi Don,
You can use four of the zones and everything will work fine. Our 4 zone system is out of stock because the ISS4 (speaker selector) is sold out. You can substitute the ISS4 with a dual source 4-zone unit, the DSM4, and still use the AMP200 in the four zones with the same volume controls. You can also go with the six-zone kit. Either method will work. Give us a call if you have further questions:

I have a Yamaha Receiver that I would like to use to hook up our XM, IPOD and turntable to and be able to play music to 6 different room in our house and this looks like the system to use, but would like some guidance on whether or not this is the right system?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 19, 2011

Answer:
This system will work perfectly fine whether your Yamaha receiver has a low-level signal out or only a speaker level output. The AMP300 has multiple input connections to handle any application. It will also give you a second source option as well. This will provide plenty of power to the whole system.
OSD also has a number of affordable speaker options for in-wall, in-ceiling, patio or rock speakers. You can also add powered subwoofers to your system as well.




By Kevyn from Sacramento, CA on November 1, 2012
HI: I am about to embark on a Multi room audio set up as well as a home theater system. I have already got the 4 core speaker wiring installed to the indoor and outdoor audio locations as well as volume control locations/boxes in each room. I think I have 5 zones ( 5 separate pairs of speakers) plus 2 outdoor speakers and a single master bathroom speaker which I guess I can install as part of the other zones. That is, I assume one of the zones can have 2 pairs of speakers( this is for an outdoor patio and an outdoor loggia area) , and the other zone one pair of speakers and a single speaker (this is for a master bedroom and master bathroom setup). For the home theater I am looking at either a 5.1 or 7.1 system depending on how I would connect the house system. I plan on multiple inputs for the home theater/stereo surround sound system (DVD, CD, Internet, Turntable, tuner etc) and an LED flat panel TV. I would want to be able to imput audio to the house system from the CD player, tuner/receiver and internet radio.

So, I am trying to determine what to buy for:

Speakers
Volume Controls
multi zone amplifier if needed for house system
Home theater/surround sound amp/receiver for that.

And then, how to wire it all together so that I dont blow anything up or fry anything.

Thanks for your input and recommendations.

Maryann: Hi Kevyn,
We can assist you on this but require additional information such as a rough drawing of the areas you are planning to place the speakers. We also need to know what speakers you currently own and what model of volume controls are you using. Are you planning on doing a Custom Home Theater setup for your speakers?

Would this system be available for interational install ie@UK /Hz 50Hz and is it considered to be "Marine Grade" for Ocean Side Home install.
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 22, 2012

Answer:
Hi John:

1) The High Current Amplifier included in this bundle is multi-voltage. But you need to specify that it is for 230V/50Hz when you order the kit.

2) You should have no problem using this amplifier in your home near the Ocean as long as it is istalled in the home.

Can you run more than just 2 speakers per zone? I envision 6 or 8 speakers in a deck / patio area (1000 +/- SF) and plan to use it as a single zone, while eventually installing additional zones inside the house.
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 23, 2012

Answer:
Hi Brian,

Whether you are running one, two or even a number of pairs in a zone, you need to address the impedance matching issue. That is one of the chief reasons for adding volume controls, speaker selectors or a combination of both for an elaborate system where you need to address the impedance matching of the speakers to the amplification. Outdoor volume controls are very helpful in setting up an outdoor system especially when you are dealing with multiple locations. I would be more than happy to review a diagram of your layout of the deck/patio area so I can offer some suggestions. Please feel free to contact me at tim@osdaudio.com. I can respond with a wiring diagram for you as well.

Would this unit be suitable to accept a preamp line output from a stereo reciever and connect an ISS4 speaker selector to each of the AB speaker outputs to power 2 stereo speakers with volume controls in 8 zones?

If so, what would the package price be for the amplifier unit with one ISS4 and seven volume controls as I have purchased one volume control and one ISS4 unit from you previously?
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 10, 2011

Answer:
Yes, this amplifier is ideal for this application both for the line output from your receiver (plus you can add a second source at the amplifier as well) and to drive the (2) ISS4 speaker selectors while utilizing our impedance matching volume controls: one connected to speaker A and the second connected to speaker B.

Note: you will need to make sure the protection button on the two ISS4 selectors is disabled (in the off position). And if you connect a single pair of speakers to each volume control, you will set the impedance matching to 4x on each VC. If you add a second speaker in anyone of the zones, you will need to change the setting for all the volume controls connected to the common ISS4 to 8x. You can get away with having up to two pairs for all eight volume controls as long as you use the 8x setting where instructed and the protection switch of the speaker selector is disabled. The High Current AMP300 would have no problem driving this load.

Regarding question number two, we would offer you the same $499.95 price for the AMP300, (1) ISS4 and 7 each of the SVC100 volume controls

We also have a large selection of speakers for any and all applications, thanks for buying from OSD.

I am having trouble picking speakers for this amp. Most of the better quality speakers watt ratings start at 100 watts, this unit says it can only handle 40 watts per channel? Is this correct??
Mike
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 23, 2012

Answer:
Hi Mike,

The amplifier is not the weak point here. The combination of our entry level speaker selector and 100-watt impedance-matching volume controls are the issue. Tell us what you want to accomplish. I would like an opportunity to discuss your whole system design, please contact me at tim@osdaudio.com

By Mick from Racine, WI on June 7, 2012
I am planning to purchase the 6 zone kit and I would like run two sets of speakers in one of the rooms. Could you advise how to wire the two sets of speakers so that I use just one volume controller? Thanks!
By Customer Service - Q&A on June 7, 2012

Answer:
Mick,
You can wire the sets in parallel to one volume controller. Be sure to set the setting to 8X because assumedly you are driving 6-8 pairs. Be sure to leave the protection OFF on the speaker selector, because you are using on the volume controls.

I have a question about the impedance setting for my size zone system. I have one pair of speakers in three separate zones (3 sets in total). Then, I have two pairs of speakers wired in parallel in the fourth zone. So, should I consider this 4 pairs or 5 pairs of speakers for the impedance? And, does it matter if I have a fifth zone wired, but no speakers attached (to be used as some future date)? Thanks!
By Customer Service - Q&A on August 8, 2012

Answer:
Hi Mick:

Technically with 3 zones having a single pair and a fourth with 2 pair you would need to set your impedance setting to 8X (for 5, 6, 7 or 8 pair). That is I am assuming you are connecting to a speaker selector powered by a second zone output from an AV receiver then it would definitely need to be 8X setting for all four volume controls. It would also be ready to add a fifth zone (which would be set at 8x as well) at a later date. Please let us know what your complete system setup is if you need additional clarification.

By Chris from south carolina on February 19, 2012
I have a JVC receiver that receives RCA inputs from several sources and amplifies signal to two sets of speakers. I want to increase the number of rooms I have music in. The only output on the JVC are the two sets of speaker outputs, which are the push-button outputs that accept a bare speaker wire. Can I use speaker wire to connect one of these outputs to an input on the AMP300? What that means is connecting an amped signal to the AMP 300.

Thanks.
By Customer Service - Q&A on February 20, 2012

Answer:
Hi Chris:

The OSD-AMP300 accepts either a signal level (pre-amplified) or Speaker Level input (amplified). It is ideal for your application based upon your question. It takes the speaker level and converts to un-amplified then directs it back through the internal amplifier of the AMP-300. The unit features dual source inputs either two signal levels or one signal level and one speaker level. When you connect to the AMP300 make sure you connect to input #2. It will also give you a signal level output in case you might want to add a powered sub. The signal level outputs only affects whatever is connected to input number 2 wheter it is signal level or speaker level.
