QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Jerry from La Habra CA. on December 28, 2011
I want to use it with one Amp. Can it not only switch between the A/B sets of speakers but can it play all four at once?
By Customer Service - Q&A on December 28, 2011

Answer:
Dear Jerry,
This switch wouldnt allow you to select all at once time, its either or.

Answer:
Hi Jerry:

Another option to consider is connecting the two pair of speakers with a Impedance Matching Volume Control wiring the speakers in Parallel. You can play both speakers at the same time but will not be able switch between them. The Impedance Matching Volume Control will make sure that the Amplifier sees an acceptable load while allowing you to control the volume from the remote location. It also costs the same as the A/B switch.

I have the SSV C6 switcher w/volume control. Have now added pair of speakers outside. Can I use AB switch off of selector output, and connect new speaker pair and pair I removed from selector to AB switch.

Marc,
Yes you can do that. It would be perfect for that.

Can I use this switch between an AMP 120 amplifier and two SVC 205 volume controls (with on/off switch). I want to select between a pair of indoor speakers and 2 pairs of outdoor speakers.
Thanks
By Customer Service - Q&A on December 10, 2012

Answer:
HI Ruben,

You can connect one SVC205 (to the internal speakers) to Speaker A of the AMP120 and connect a second SVC205 (to the 2 pair of outdoor speakers) to Speaker B. Here's how the A/B switches work on the AMP120: when you press A, the B switch pops out; when you press B, the A switch pops out. It is designed this way because people typically play only one set of speakers at a time either A or B. Therefore, it would work the same way as the AB-1.2. You would set the impedance matching setting for each SVC205 to 2X.

I want to use ab1.2 inwall a/b speaker selector switch.

it states that
Switch between 2 amplifiers and 1 pair of speakers or 2 pairs of speakers and 1 amplifier

I want to use it with 2 amps and 1 pair of speakers.
Have you ever had any complaints of cross talk from the 2 amps?
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 30, 2011

Answer:
Hi Mark:

The switch provides excellent isolation. We have had no negative feedback. The last 100 sold, only one had been returned.

Works Perfectly
February 21, 2013
This switch worked perfectly to switch between two sets of speakers from my amp. The device does go back a ways into the low voltage box, so you have to be careful installing it. One tip, is that the connections for the speaker wire slide off, so you can connect the speaker wire into the little block, then slide the block back on the pins--it makes it much easier to install.
Pros:
Low Power Consumption, Easy To Use, Quality Construction

Works Great!!!

ALL the 'screw' terminals (Block) could be beefed -up a bit, other than that this was exactly what I needed to to solve my problem.
Pros:
Easy To Set Up, Low Power Consumption, Easy To Use
Cons:
Screw terminals, Flimsy Construction
Best Uses:
Upgrade
