Features & Specifications

Speaker selectors like the DSM8 allow you to distribute an amplified signal to multiple zones throughout the house without losing audio quality. These units also have manually activated impedance-protection circuits that protect your amps or receivers from low impedance levels as you add more speakers to each zone. With independent a/b switches per zone, the DSM8 dual source 8-zone speaker selector lets you input two music sources, for instance, iPod library and satellite radio, and choose which source will play in a designated zone. Keep in mind that playing different sources in different zones at the same time requires separate amps or receivers to power those sources. The a/b switches are a convenient way to switch from source 1 (amp A) to source 2 (amp b).


• Removable input/output connectors which accept 14 gauge speaker wire
• Four color display packaging
• Eight zone speaker selector
• Dual source with manual protection switch
• Removable input/output connectors

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Ian V from Louisiana on September 29, 2012
Is there a remote that controls this unit?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 1, 2012

Answer:
Hi Ian,
This unit does not include a remote. However, we do have a 7-zone speaker selector, the ATM-7, with remote. It is a single source, unlike the DSM8.

How to connect the subwoofer output from a receiver to this selector?
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 18, 2012

Answer:
Hi Henry:

Most Receivers only feature Pre-amp subwoofer output which needs to be connected to an external amplifier or a Powered Subwoofer. We would need additional information on what your application, so we can understand why you want to connect your subwoofer to the DSM8.

LOVE THIS CONTROL BOX
October 13, 2016
This is a high quality box and the only one I could find on the market with the A/B input option for each zone. Just hooked it up, but don't anticipate any problems.

Works Great!
December 26, 2013
The speaker selector arrived quickly as stated. I hooked my speakers up without any problems. The self-adhering button labels were a great addition to help distinguish which speakers each of the 8 selectors control. Sound is greater and unit has solid construction. The size and black color fits right in with my system.
Pros:
Easy set up Button labels Solid Construction
Cons:
None

excellent product!
May 22, 2013
this speaker selector for 8 zones is terrific! I use it for whole house audio. Controls 16 speakers. It comes with labels to label all the buttons (even thought they are a little small for old people like me to see.) Easy hookup. sound is excellent. only wish it came with a remote to change speaker selection, of course it would be more expensive then. Excellent product for the price, was delivered like the NEXT day after I bought it. Super FAST!
Pros:
easy hookup.
Cons:
would be nice to have a remote.
Best Uses:
whole house audio, multiple zones.

Good Speaker Switch - runs as expected
January 6, 2013
Good speaker selector, works as expected, low power / heat, I have hooked it up to Four speaker pairs and it works great. I would have preferred better / easier / more rugged connections in the back for the speaker cables... But once it is all cabled up, you shouldnt have to mess with it again. I would recommend this.
Pros:
Low Power Consumption, Easy To Use

Great Product
November 17, 2011
This product is great. Not only do you get 8 zones, which holds a lot of speakers, but you also get labels for the zone buttons. I don't have to think about what button goes to what room anymore. I love it!
Pros:
Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Low Power Consumption, Quality Construction

The input and output ...
March 20, 2010
The input and output connectors are too small for 14 gauge speaker wire. It will work but it takes some patience as you have to tighten very small screws to keep the speaker wire in place. I had to redo some of the connections many times as it would pop out because the hole is not big enough to accept the wires properly. Once you get past that, the product works as advertised. I just wish they used more standard connectors. Most receivers and amps can be connected within a few seconds. This requires a little patience.

May 4, 2007
I recently purchased the DSSM 8 zone, dual source selector for our whole house audio system. I was impressed with how easy it was to hook up. The slim profile makes it almost unnoticeable in our pantry. My wife and I are extremely satisfied with how easily you can switch between zones and sources. The support staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout the order process and had it shipped within a couple days of the order. I have purchased numerous items from Outdoor Speaker Depot and will continue to buy from them. Thanks.
