Unique easy-access impedance matching jumper setting without open the weatherproof seal box. If you enjoy an outdoor audio system, you'll love the convenience of outdoor volume controls! Now you can stop dragging the remote control outside where it is sure to get lost, or avoid having to get up and go to your audio source to turn the volume up or down. This pure resonance volume control offers 100 Watts of optimized sound quality with minimal bass roll-off. Control 1-8 pairs of speakers simultaneously with impedance matching. The autoformer design features outstanding sound quality due to high permeability steel utilization in the volume control core. Comes with Grey or white face plate. In addition, the OVC-100 includes an easy access impedance switch that lets you set the impedance without opening the box.

What's on your mind?
Mark • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Have a place in the wall set to put in a volume control, can this unit be used? Or is it strictly self standing unit to be attached to a conduit?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMThe SVC100 and OVC100 are identical except the OVC100 includes the outdoor housing that either mounts to a wall or on a conduit pipe. If your in-wall location is in the house go with the SVC100. Or if you need a higher powered unit you can purchase the SVC300. If your inwall location that you want to use is outside, you should still use the SVC100 or SVC300 but we would recommend purchasing an outdoor cover
Chad • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Does anyone have a picture of the back, I can not believe there is capability to hookup 8 speakers!
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Chad, This volume control has a setting for 8 pairs; however, that is on the amp total, not the OVC100. Although the OVC100 is capable of running 2 pairs at max, we do not recommend it for novice installers. In order to run more than one pair, you would have to wire it in parallel. The connections are made with the lead wires that are labeled and come from the bottom. The back of the unit is the outer housing, which is sealed for outdoor use. I hope this helps. CL/ MA
Bob • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I am running wires from my indoor amp to my outdoor jacuzzi. Jacuzzi has built in speakers (similar to boat speakers). When I hook up the wires to speakers, I get no sound. Yet I've verified that the wires are providing good sound by hooking up an indoor speaker. What do I need to make this work right?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Bob: It seems you need to determine if the Jacuzzi speakers are working. Try connecting a short piece of speaker wire to the inputs of the Jacuzzi speakers. Then with a 9 volt battery (the rectangle ones usually found in garage door openers) touch the positive post of the battery to the red wire and then just touch the black wire to the negative post of the battery to see if you get any response out of the speaker. When you touch it briefly you should here a crackling static sound through each speaker you test. Maybe you will find out the speakers just need to be connected internally or there is a switch somewhere. Do you have a model number for your Jacuzzi so we can look up the owners manual? Good luck...

Eric Menesses • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM By default, What is the impedance switch set to?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Eric: The default setting is 1/2x. The other two settings are 4x or 8x. What are you trying to do? TL
Eric Menesses • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have (2) Pairs of AP520, (2) OVC100, and (1) AMP120. One pair of speakers goes to the first OVC100 and the second pair of speakers goes to the second OVC100. The outputs from A on the amp go to the first OVC100 and B outputs go to the second OVC100. What do I need to set the volume controls to? Thank you!
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Eric: Set the Volume Controls to 1/2X. Use input #2 if only intending to do single source. TL
