QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Alex from Barcelona, Spain on April 30, 2012
The name of the unit says 300W, but the user guide indicates 100W per channel! Which is correct? Can I connect it to a 170W/per channel receiver?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 1, 2012

Answer:
Hi Alex:

This will work fine with your 170Watt per channel receiver. It is 100watts with 300 watts peak per channel per each built in Volume Control per zone.

Can this unit handle 4 ohm speakers? I have 2 pair 8 ohm and one 4 ohm.
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 14, 2012

Answer:
Hi Steve,
Unfortunately, this speaker selector is intended for 8-ohm speakers only.

By Dan from Atlanta on September 17, 2012
Connection options to be sure I understand. My receiver has an A/B selector. Please confirm that I can
connect this unit to my B speakers coming out of the receiver as 14 gauge speaker wire. The SSVC4 can split this signal into 2 or 4 zones with separate volume controls. If that sounds correct. Given this set up, will I be able to turn my amp volume down (my A speakers) and still crank up my B speakers much louder?
Thanks for your help!
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 18, 2012

Answer:
Hi Dan,
All of our speaker selectors will accept 14 gauge wire. What you're trying to do may be determined by what your receiver can do. Does it allow separate volume control for A and B? I am assuming it does not. Our volume controls are passive devices that allow you to turn down the volume; they do not amplify a signal. You might consider using our SVC300 volume control on the A speakers that you want to turn down. If you tell me more about your application, I can make a more detailed recommendation by knowing more about your system.

I don't quite understand what comes out of the receiver and from where to go into this.

Is it out of the receivers native speakers outputs?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 20, 2013

Answer:
Hi Chris,
Our speaker selectors are all passive devices which help organize the speaker level outputs from your receiver (an amplified signal). A standard speaker selector features four, six or eight zone connections with a dedicated on/off switch per zone (like our ISS4, 6 or 8). It also features a button labeled for protection to be used in case you are connecting the speakers directly to the speaker selector without impedance-matching volume controls. The step up to the ISS series is the DSSM which operates the same way as the ISS but adds an independent A/B switch per each zone allowing you to select between two different sources. The protection switch operates the same as the ISS series. Now the SSVC series speaker selectors you reference to in your initial question is part of our speaker selectors that feature a dedicated built-in Impedance-matching volume control for each zone.

How do you remove the speaker connector plugs? The instruction page refers to a "captive screw" on each side of the connector. I'm not finding that.
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 5, 2012

Answer:
Hi Dennis,

The A/B input plug and also Zone1/2 and Zone 3/4 connectors are removable. They are not attached, but the connection is fairly tight. I find pulling on one side then the other while applying constant pressure works best. It is literally just pushed in. You’ll find that when it is removed, it is easier to terminate the wires because you have much better leverage.

By Edwin from Austin, TX on October 10, 2012
If I want the remote speakers to be louder than the signal from the main reciever, can I put a secondary stereo amplifier on the line into the ssvc4 and, if so, do you have a recommendation for such an amplifier?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 10, 2012

Answer:
Hi Edwin,
We recommend the AMP200. With this amp, you can connect your receiver as a source via RCA cables and let it drive your four zones while the receiver remains the source.

By Smokey from Louisiana on May 12, 2012
I'm looking at the specs at the SSVC4, does this come in a D-100 and D-300 series like the SSVC6? The specs on the SSVC4 states 180w max per channel. But it also states in description 300w. The SSVC6 D-100 and D-300 states 180w max and 360w max respectively. I would really like 360w per channel but only need 4 channels?

Thanks in advance
Smokey
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 13, 2012

Answer:
Hi Smokey:

180 watts would be the RMS or nominal rating. 300 watts would be peak. The unit features (4) 100 watt per channel internal Impedance Matching volume controls. Are you planning on only using two zones or four channels or four zones and eight channels. It takes two channels (left and right +/-) for a stereo zone. I am assuming you are utilizing eight channels and need the four zones. I believe the SSVC4 should be able to handle your application.

What does the unit connect to?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 16, 2012

Answer:
Hi Roy,
This speaker selector would input power from your amp or receiver and enable you to connect and control up to four pairs of speakers. It features an individual volume control, on/off switch and a choice of A or B source per each zone (speaker pair). It allows the amplifier/receiver to drive multiple speakers with the proper impedance matching to avoid shutdown or overheating.

Can you use 'up to' 14 gauge wire or 14 only? I already have some 16 gauge wire run as it is only 30 ft. or so.
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 20, 2012

Answer:
Brian,
The 14 gauge is the largest you could use, 16 gauge is actually smaller so it would work great with this SSVC4. You wouldn't able to use a 12 gauge wire it would be too thick.

By Brian from Toronto, Ontario, Canada on November 23, 2012
If I supply this device with 100 W and run 4 pairs of speakers from it the max. power to each pair will be 25W? Or is 'impedance matching' allowing 100W to each pair.?
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 23, 2012

Answer:
Hi Brian,

We’ll need more information to help you. What component are you using for the 100 watts? Will you use the unused channels of a 7.1 Audio/Video Receiver or a dedicated power amplifier like our AMP120 or High Current Amplifier like the AMP200? The SSVC4 comes from the factory with the internal jumpers set at 2X so it is designed to have a higher output, especially when used in conjunction with our AMP200. The jumpers need to be set to 4x or 8x when used with our AMP120 or with most Audio/Video receivers. With a little information, we can be more helpful.

Great Product
April 8, 2015
We had previously used a Radio Shack speaker selector system. The SSVC4 is a much better choice as it allows us to adjust volume levels independently for the outdoor speakers and indoor speakers in our clubhouse. Also appreciated the removable wire connection modules. This feature make it so much easier to do the original installation. The only negative feature our people have noticed is that it would be nice if there were numbers associated with the steps on the attenuation knobs, and pointers were in a visible color.

Works as Advertised
September 27, 2012
A must for multi-room speaker control. I noticed no discernible volume loss with all four channels running. I use it for small bookshelf and outdoor speakers that do not demand high wattage. I do not use it as my main speaker selector. I would suggest slightly larger connections in the back of the unit. Care must be taken that the stranded speaker wires do not touch each other. Since I just purchased the product, time will tell as to the unit's long term quality.
Pros:
Good value, Easy To Set Up

AWESOME!!!

We are using it for four sets of outdoor speakers. Having the separate controls (on/off and volume) for each pair of speakers is phenomenal. And very convenient. The only drawback is that we used 14 gauge wire due to extrememly long wire runs, and it's VERY difficult to get a connection to stay due to the very small input jacks for speaker wire.
Pros:
Great power, Easy To Use, Easy To Set Up, Quality Construction, Attractive, Compact
Cons:
Input jacks too small

I have 3 sets of speakers,so only needed 3 zones, but I paid for 4 because that is how it comes. But when we set it up the 4th button did not work. It gets stuck. Would have been way too inconvenient for me to send it back as I'd paid for the installation, but the company was very helpful and agreed to refund me $2500, which I felt was very fair.

Great Customer Service
January 15, 2012
I ordered the SSVC4 speaker selector after reading good reviews online. When it arrived, I was disappointed to find two of the four on-off buttons were stuck in the on position. I was in a bind because the holidays were fast approaching and I was looking at a house full of guests and no speakers. I spoke with customer service, ordered another unit and it arrived promptly. I sent the defective unit back and got a prompt refund. The folks at OSD were courteous and responsive, and I would (and probably will) order products from them in the future.

After returning a cheap ...
March 5, 2010
After returning a cheap plastic speaker switcher I bought from a well-known retail electronics store for $45, I decided to take a chance on a brand designed by a company that specializes in outdoor audio where speaker selectors are essential. My research paid off and I couldn't be happier. The build quality is very high, with an all metal chassis, solid volume controls that convey quality, and separate push button on/off switches for each speaker pair. It is the width of most DVD players and receivers, so it looks great in a rack. It is heavy enough so it doesn't slide back when you push the buttons. You can also run two receivers into the unit, and separately control whether each pair is driven by receiver A or receiver B. The back speaker connectors are in three strips that plug in and out for ease of installation, especially in a rack. You can run the wires to the front of the rack, install the wires, and then reach around the unit and plug them in. The only possible drawback is if you have huge speaker cable, as I doubt 12 or larger will work. This unit is designed for an 8 ohm receiver output and 8 ohm speakers, unlike cheaper units that will drop the impedence to 4 ohms which will not drive many speakers. You can spend twice as much on one of those high end audio brands, or spend less and get a lot more features. A great deal for the money.

This speaker selector ...
January 22, 2010
This speaker selector works good for the price. Other single source speaker selectors without volume control are much more than at OSD. I originally purchased this selector to power 3 seperate pairs of 6-1/2", 4-ohm, Alpine, marine speakers with an older Kenwood home theater receiver. Unfortunately, many "lower-end" receivers aren't capable of adequately powering several pairs of speakers like this and it kept cutting out. I decided to purchase the M15 amplifier from OSD to power my speakers and I just use the old receiver as a tuner and for all of my inputs. Now I am very happy with the sound and I have plenty of power to spare. I will come to OSD first for all of my electronics purchases. Very high quality at reasonable prices. Thanks!

I bought this several years ago. It has a solid feel and does a nice job. The A-B inputs give you nice flexibility. The only negative is that the volume control needs a better markng. It has a slot cut out...but no whit paint. Is difficult to see what volume you are at. I use some appliance paint to highlight the slot. Well worth the money.
