Features & Specifications

The OSD-ISS6 Speaker Selector High Power 6 Pair available at Outdoor Speaker Depot will allow users to run as many zones as they choose at a given time, whether it's running all of them simultaneously or deactivating some and running speakers in just one or two zones. Individual On/Off selectors for every zone distributes one stereo speaker-level signal to eight, six or four stereo listening zones. You can run 140 watts per channel total input power without engaging the manual protection, or 70 watts per channel when the protection is engaged. With the OSD-ISS6's impedance protection, one amplifier can safely power several pairs of speakers. The OSD-ISS6 Speaker Selector High Power 6 Pair comes with a warranty good for five years. Order today from Outdoor Speaker Depot and get fast shipping.

Ugraded Model with Improved Input/Output Connectors!

The upgraded, European-style removable input/output connectors offer better leverage when terminating cable and accept up to 14 gauge cable. The ISS’s feature 16 gauge steel construction with our durable black wrinkle powder coating and gray silk-screening. Each unit is provided with an in-depth instruction sheet and die cut labels that fit the recessed area on the buttons for labeling each zone. The 8.5" chassis width of the ISS6 combines with other 8.5" wide OSD Audio components (which will be available in the future) to make a standard 17" wide unit.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Eric from Sewell, NJ on January 12, 2012
Will this unit work without connecting a 2nd amp, if I have an Onkyo TX-NR709 Av receiver, it has a zone 2 option. Looking to have 6 zones of music thou the house. with some builder grade speaker or a step up.
Thanks Eric
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 13, 2012

Answer:
Hi Eric,

Typically with multi-rooms, the receiver alone is not enough power to run your surround sound and 6 additional zones with the "Zone 2". Most customers add an amp to power the whole house. After reviewing the extensive manual for your Onkyo receiver, you'll notice on page 63 it talks about Zone 2. You have two options: powered utilizing the 110 Watts per channel that was intended for Channel 6 and 7 of a 7.1 system. This will work if you were planning to run a single pair of speakers for the second zone. But in the case where you want to connect up to six zones, we would recommend utilizing the signal level preouts for Zone 2 to connect to a High Current external amplifier like our OSD AMP200. Then you can use a speaker selector like our ISS6 or DSM6 to control the 6 individual zones. Each of these speaker selectors features switchable protection. Ideally, you can add an impedance-matching volume control for each zone as well. This features more control in each zone while providing a better way to protect your system than the internal protection of the Speaker Selector (which you would disable). Note we also offer a large selection of Custom Install speakers for both inside and outside in all different shapes, sizes and price ranges.

Please let us know if this information helped.

ISS^ High Power 6 Pair Speaker Selector
March 22, 2013
I was looking out for a switch to control my Inbuilt speaker. Luckily I found this item at OSD which was exactly the same I was looking for. To my wonder it worked very well & sound of speaker also improved a lot without any over loading problem.Excellent quality for the price I paid. I order one more with volume control from OSD. It would be even better if they can give RCA connector for input source instead of screw type connector for ease of connectivity.
Pros:
Ease of speaker connection & set up.
Cons:
Screw type connector for input source.

I like the product very much. The only thing that would have made it better is larger, more convenient to use, speaker wire connectors

Simple, Elegant, Functional Design
September 23, 2016
An excellently designed piece of equipment. It handled my connections perfectly! A simple, elegant design and easy to make the connections, including screw in sockets. What a pleasure. A nice added touch were pre-printed, stick-on labels that match the speaker locations (e.g. Mstr Bdrm). Through-power is substantial.

Works fine
March 22, 2013
Overall works fine. Good value. I am not to crazy about the new wire attachment. It is a modular / removable attachment and I had a lot of difficulty attaching thicker grade wire. It was difficult to attach the wires securely They kept coming off. Was very frustrating. I get the concept but needs to be redesigned.
Pros:
Price and seems reasonably well built
Cons:
Modular wire attachment. Not user friendly

Exactly what I needed at good price
May 18, 2012
Needed this item to direct music to multiple areas of house (i.e. garage, patio, kitchen, etc.). Found it to be very simple to connect for even a novice - just strip wires and plug em in. Really like the fact that its not just music to one area like some other switches. Not really for use with surround sound systems. Word of caution to those with receivers/systems that use proprietary wiring for connecting their speakers & sub - you may have to get creative with your wiring (or just use a different receiver).
Pros:
Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Easy To Set Up
Cons:
Surround Sound Systems
Best Uses:
Multi-room audio

Still a Good Simple Speaker Selector
September 6, 2011
After a month of use my original review still stands. This is a great speaker selector at a great price. Just updating my review as a certified buyer now. Works great as a whole hose audio zone selector. Pros: - Built in impedance protection (button pushed in for on). But not necessary if you have impedance matching volume controls properly setup. - Small for factor and does not require any power - Enough space between speaker connections to prevent shorting wires Cons: - Not rack mount ready. Its the right with, but no brackets and you would have to drill and tap the housing. No problem to remove the housing to do that, or to just use a shelf. but would of been nice if they had it already drilled for brackets. - I wish they had an A/B model of this selector.
Pros:
Plenty of inputs
Cons:
Not rack mountable
Best Uses:
Whole house audio
