This pure resonance volume control offers 300 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.

    Mark Ambrose • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have a Yamaha Rx 496 receiver that is powering Niles indoor speakers and a sub-woofer. I recently hooked up some outdoor landscape rock speakers. Now the receiver turns off as if a circuit is blowing. When it doesn't blow a circuit, one of the outdoor landscape speakers has normal volume and the other speaker is barely on. Any ideas as to what the problem may be and how to solve it? Thanks!!!

    Hi Mark, The Yamaha RX-496 features an impedance-matching switch on the back. Can you tell me what it is set at now, right or left? What is your Niles set up for Speaker A, passive subwoofer or powered? I am assuming you have Speaker B running the outdoor speakers. A little more info is needed before I can totally assess the issue. TL/MA
    Dan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM How do you hook up more than 2 speakers into this box? All I see is 4 output connectors in the diagram. I have 1 pair of speaker wires (4 wires total) coming from my amp and I want 2 pairs of speakers on my patio (8 wires total) Thank you

    Yes, you can connect two pairs of speakers to the OVC300. You have two choices: connect both pairs together to the output leads coming from the OVC300, two right positive from the speakers to the single right positive output coming out of the OVC300. Repeat this for the right negative, left positive and left negative. You'll want to use something like our Aqua Blue connectors. The second option is to run two conductor cables to the right and left speakers of the first pair. Then, using the input connector of each speaker, connect a second set of two conductor cables to go out to the corresponding right and left speaker of the second pair. This would be referred to as daisy chaining the pair together. Make sure to set the impedance switch to 2x. Ultimately the answer is yes; you can connect two pair of speakers to the single OVC300. Thank you for considering OSD Branded products. We do offer both 16/2 and 16/4 CL3 rated speaker wire for both in-wall and direct burial applications. Good luck! TL/MA
    GAMAL • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Hello, I have no experience working A/V equipment and would like to set up some speakers on my pool area. I need some advice on how to complete my project. - I would like to set up 2 outdoor speakers around my pool/deck area and all want is to be able to connect them to my iphone/ipod. - I'm trying to stay away from getting a receiver to keep my project simple and on a low budget. I was wondering if it would be possible to hook up these speakers to a power supply/amplifier and an audio jack? What would I need to get this done? Any advice? Thanks for any help!

    Hi Gamal, To drive a pair of outdoor speakers, you have a couple of options. You could purchase our AMP120, which would be about the same price as the RX4015 (receiver). A less expensive alternative would be our outdoor MA2 amplifier. You could drive our AP450s with this amp and its rated for outdoors use. The amp also comes with the cable that goes directly into your iPod and includes a tuner/antenna for radio reception. Keep in mind, however, that the MA2 is only 25W per channel so if youre looking for more volume, I suggest the indoor AMP120 or indoor RX4105 with a pair of our AP520s or AP640s. You can connect your iPod or computer directly into the back of either of these with an RCA to mini cable. CL/MA
    Ed • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I currently have a 12 year old Onkyo 676 (will use outdoor speakers on speaker B), but may upgrade to 717 soon for the Zone 2/Zone 3 capabilities (would use outdoor speakers on those additional zone speaker outpouts). We're looking at this volume control (OVC300) to control the volume for two pair (4 total) RS840 rock speakers. The distance from receiver to speakers would be 50-70' depending on which speaker. To minimize wires, would it be acceptable to run 14-4 from the receiver to the OVC300 (for Left/Right), and then 14-4 from the OVC 300 to an ISS4 (again for Left/Right), and then (4) 14-2's to each speaker? Or would the ISS4 not be needed if we always want all 4 speakers on, and when we run the 14-4 from the OVC300, instead of to the ISS4 we would just run them in paralell by connecting 1/2 of the 14-4 to (2) 14-2's, and the other 1/2 of the 14-4 to the remaining (2) 14-2's? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ed, You would just wire the two sets in parallel to the OVC300 and you would not need the iss4. CL

    Hi Ed, Plus it's a good idea to run 14/4 CL3 speaker wire from the receiver to the OVC300. Then use 14/2 from the OVC300. You can terminate the four conductors coming from the OVC300 or run a two conductor to the first pair of speakers. You could then terminate the incoming from the OVC300 to two more dual conductors (one for left and a second pair for right). Either way will work. TL/MA
