Features & Specifications

• Distributes audio from your amplifier to up to six pairs of speakers
• Includes individual on/off selectors for each zone
• Play one pair, a combination of pairs, or all pairs simultaneously
• Impedance protection allows a single amplifier to safely power multiple speakers
• Control audio in six zones and set the volume of any pair independently
• Removable input/output connectors allow easy cable termination
• Includes on/off switches for each zone
• Low profile with black brushed aluminum finish
• Includes a five-year warranty

Designed to distribute audio to up to six pairs of speakers, the ISS8 High Power Speaker Selector puts you in control of your whole house audio by giving you the option to play any pair, a combination of pairs, or all pairs of speakers simultaneously and control the volume. Easy to connect with a low-profile design that fits into a cabinet or equipment rack, the ISS8 speaker selector includes a dual source input so you can choose between two audio sources, and we even include die cut labels that fit within the recessed area on the buttons so you can label your audio zones (e.g., Bedroom, Kitchen, etc.,).

A passive device that connects to a high-current amplifier, front-panel push buttons let you turn each pair of speakers on or off independently, and the ISS6 also includes impedance-matching circuitry so you can safely drive all six pair at once without damaging your equipment. Keep in mind that running six pairs of speakers will require a high-current amp such as our AMP300 or a multi-zone amp such as our MX1260. Using an A/V receiver alone is not recommended.

Designed with quality in mind, the ISS8 is constructed of heavy-duty steel with a durable black powder coating, and we’re so confident you will love the ISS8, we include a five-year warranty.

Easy to Connect

You don’t need to be a tech-head to install the ISS8 speaker selector. We designed in European-style input/output connectors that are removeable, which gives you better leverage when terminating cable than traditional spring-loaded terminals. This speaker selector takes either four or two conductor speaker wire (up to 14-guage) stripped at the ends that are inserted into the screw-down input/output terminals for a tight fit to ensure the best signal transmission and sound quality possible.

Protecting Valuable Audio Equipment with Impedance Protection

When connecting multiple speakers to an amplifier, you need to stay above the amp’s minimum load requirements. Going below the impedance rating can overheat or even damage expensive equipment. The ISS8 includes selectable impedance matching protection circuitry that allows a single amplifier to safely power multiple pairs of speakers. This speaker selector handles 140 watts per channel total input power without the manual protection engaged and 70 watts per channel with the protection engaged.

Specifications

Other Product Info

The ISS4, ISS6 and ISS8 are low-profile speaker distribution systems with individual on/off selectors for each listening zone which distribute one stereo speaker-level signal to eight, six or four stereo listening zones. The ISS Series also provides manual power protection that is activated from the rear panel.

It's a good way to distribute to in-house speakers. The wire connectors take practice and time
Pros:
Good distribution at a fair price
Cons:
Wire connectors take a little extra time but they work. I didn't realize they unplug for easier termination but still a little tricky to use.

I bought this to allow me to add speakers to my garage/mancave and outdoor deck/yard areas rather than just using the "speaker A and B" switch on my receiver and winding up with cruddy sound. This gives great and SIMPLE flexibilty as to which speakers I have on in different areas. Although I don't need the 8 pair switch now (currently only have 4 pairs)I will be able to add more when I feel like annoying the wife even further. So what's not to love about that?
Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Set Up, Quality Construction

What a great upgrade
July 23, 2012
I replaced a Jamo speaker switch that had shorted out. This one far exceeds the previous one. Seems that there is more power going to the speakers and the sound is a lot cleaner. I also liked the fact the it was about half the price of the previous switch.
Pros:
Affordable, Easy setup
Best Uses:
Upgrade

ISS8 Delivers As Promised
December 13, 2011
I have an old Kenwood amp that puts out 90w per channel and has two pair of speaker outputs, A and B. We built a new home with nine speaker pairs and impedance matching volume controls. I'm using the A output to drive one speaker pair for the TV and the B output to drive the ISS8. It works perfectly. At mid-point on the volume controls, the sound level on the A and B outputs is almost identical, so there's no appreciable loss in volume from the ISS8. As a novice, I spent quite a bit of time researching speaker selectors. The ISS8 appeared to have what I was looking for at a price point I could afford should I make the wrong choice. I didn't. This was a great buy.
Pros:
Easy To Use, Low Power Consumption, Quality Construction, Easy To Set Up

Purchased the ISS-8 speaker selector switch for half the price of the competition and it delivered as promised. Power handling ratings are better than units costing twice as much and I intend to equip the remainder of my house (indoors and out) with speakers from OSD. Thanks for a superior product.
