Can an Amazon echo/echo dot be used to control this multi-room kit via Bluetooth/Wifi?
1 Answers
HI Cody: Yes, it will need a 3.5mm cable to Dual RCA to connect the Echo (3.5mm) to the AMP200 Line 2 input (dual Female RCA connection). You can set the AMP200 to auto sensing mode so when you speaker it will wake up the AMP200 from stand by. Great combo... TL/4650

can all 4 zones be used simultaneously?
1 Answers
Hi Tristan: Yes all four Zones can be plays at the same time. The Volume Controls are used to control the Impedance that the amplifier needs to see for it work in a safe operating mode. The impedance matching setting would be 4x on all four of the Volume Controls. You must make sure the protection switch on the front of the ISS4 would be in the off/out/disabled position. The Impedance Matching Volume Controls will do the protecting. The AMP200 is a High Current Amplifier which will have no problem supplying enough power output for the four zones. You can also get away with driving a couple pair of speakers in two of the four zones. As an example let say you have a great room off the kitchen that you would need two pair to give the room the proper coverage so you would purchase another pair of identical speakers for that zone and wire them in parallel, positive to positives and negatives to negatives. So that would be a total of 5 pairs which would be no problem for the AMP200. Note the ISS4 speaker selector when you use the internal protection you cut the power handling in half from 140 watts down to 70 watts. Another reason we like using the Impedance Matching Volume Controls for the primary protection instead. Good luck TL/4311

Bob
from Memphis asked:
September 12, 2016
I want all of my speakers to get both stereo channels, so I plan to use the amp200 in bridged mode. Do I run the bridged speaker pair (2 wires) from the amp to either of the channel connectors on the selector, and then to one side (channel) of the volume control? In other words, do i simply treat the bridged connection coming out of the amp as though it were the right channel at the selector and volume and then leave the left channel unused?
1 Answers
HI Bob: Yes, you can connect a speaker to each volume control. Have you purchased the speakers yet. It might be better to utilize a DVC (Dual Voice Coil/Dual Tweeter) summed Mono stereo speaker like our MK 690TT and connect the output of the AMP200 in stereo four conductor from the AMP to the Volume Controls, then a four conductor to each Dual Voice Coil speaker, connecting both right and left channels. The amplifier will be more flexible with the load it sees. Typically 8 ohm is critical in bridged mode. In stereo mode the amplifier can operate in 2 ohm load increasing its output. I would set the Volume controls to 2X on all four volume controls so the amplifier would see a 4 ohm load nearly doubling the output from the AMP200. This amplifier is a High Current Amplifier that is built to easily operate with a 4 ohm load. Good luck, let me know if you need further clarification (tim@osdaudio.com) TL/4063

Roger
from Cumming, Ga asked:
November 20, 2012
I have a receiver that has a 2nd zone output. Can I run that output into the input of your unit and then connect speakers to 3 separate rooms. I realize the source would be the same for all 3 rooms. What is the wiring configuration for the volume controls?
1 Answers
Hi Roger, This 4 Zone Multi-room Audio Kit is very flexible. Depending on your audio/video receiver, you have couple of options to connect the 2nd zone from your receiver. Assuming your receiver is a 7.1 unit that allows you to connect a 5.1 setup with five speakers and a subwoofer, you can connect channel 6 and 7 as a second zone. This would be a powered output (speaker level) using the internal amplifier. The second option would be a 2nd zone pre-amplifier (signal level) output that connects with RCA cables. In either case, the AMP200 featured in the kit has the ability to be connected either speaker level or signal level. If you have both choices available on your receiver, the optimum one would be the pre-amplified (signal level). Addressing wiring, with Option #1 (Speaker Level), use 16/4 CL 3 rated four conductor speaker wire from the receiver's channel 6 and 7 output to the Input #1 of the AMP200 (the black and red push terminals between the RCA connectors). For Option #2, pre-amplified, use OSD Audio cables to connect the receiver and the AMP200 at input #2. Then in both cases, connect the Speaker A output using the 16/4 four conductor speaker cable to the input of the ISS4 Speaker Selector. Our CL3 rated 16/4 speaker wire is approved for in-wall installation. This will be important when you connect to the three zones you plan on using. Use the same 16/4 speaker wire to connect to the output of the ISS4 (first zone 1) then run to your zone where your first volume control is located. The volume control will have an input to connect both a right positive and negative and a left positive and negative (four connections). The 16/4 is color coded red, black, green and white. So connect the red to Right Positive and the Black to Right Negative, and the White to the Left Positive and Green to the Left Negative. Make sure you have connected the same on the receiver (Option #1), AMP200, ISS4 Speaker Selector and Volume Control. Then from the Volume Control, use CL3 16/2 two conductor speaker wire to connect to the pair of speakers. One two conductor (red +/black -) to the right and one to the left. Repeat the connection from the Speaker Selector to the Volume Control to the pair of speakers in the second and third zone. Please feel free to contact us about setting up the output of the AMP200 (adjusting the gains), making sure the protection switch on the ISS4 Speaker Selector is set to off/disabled (button in the out position). Lastly, set the impedance-matching switches on each volume control to 1/2X. This will guarantee you get the most out of your AMP200. Let us know if we can help you with your choice of speakers as well. TL/MA 1397

Can I hook this up from the "Speaker B" outputs on my receiver?
1 Answers
Yes you can use the Speaker B output from your receiver connecting it to the High Level (speaker) input of the AMP200. It would be better if you have a signal level (or RCA) output from your receiver (if available) and connect to the Input #2 of the AMP200.The low level connection is typically a cleaner signal. The AMP200 also features an A & B speaker output. In both cases the AMP200 features a second source option as well. Also: You can purchase just the Speaker Selector and connect that to the B output of your receiver. In this case you will want to make sure you enable the protection circuit of the Speaker selector so as not to over lowed your receiver.

Tom
from Minneapolis, mn asked:
November 4, 2016
Is this system able to be controlled via iPhone or Android application? Looking to install a smart system to integrate with my new home theater and to install multizone listening with amplified sound to wired speakers with complete control from my phone.....
1 Answers
Hi Tom: This a basic Analog system but you can have some control of the sources through your phone if this is connected to the ZONE 2 output of your Home Theater Surround Sound Receiver. Most of the new AVRs include an App that will control the Receiver and its sources including master volume, bass and treble and choose your source (Internet Radio, Pandora etc.). The Amplifier has gain adjustments for setup and the Volume Controls add some flexibility in turning the sound down in the individual zones while providing Impedance Matching for the AMP200. So there is definitely a way to provide basic control of your system with your phone or tablet. Check the app provided by the Receiver Manufacturer of the receiver you have or are intending to purchase. TL/4110

August 19, 2015
Hello, Please forgive my ignorance! I need to set up a system with the following requirements: I would like to have 2 indoor speakers and 2 outdoor speakers with separate volume control for the two pairs. I will be using a tablet to play pandora simultaneously, but with different volume levels. Other than adding speakers, do I need anything else? Would you suggest a different system? Also, any advice on the speakers would be great. Thank you, Tamara
1 Answers
Hi Tamara, This package pretty much covers everything but the speakers and the wire! This is good for up to 4 pairs of speakers. So the Amp runs to the speaker selector, the speaker selector has 4 zones, each of which will run to 1 of the 4 volume controls and then each volume control will be wired to a pair of speakers (2 speakers). For outdoor are you planning on running in-ceiling speakers or exterior, wall mounted speakers?

I purchased the ICE 610 ceiling speakers and slide volume controls for 4 zones. Is this a compatible system?
1 Answers
Hi Christine: Yes it is compatible. Just make sure the impedance matching setting on each of the Volume Controls is set to 4X. And make sure the protection switch on the ISS4 is in the off/out (disabled position before you turn it on. The protection switch should never be used when you have Impedance matching Volume Controls doing the protection. Good Luck TS-2255

Matthew
from South Florida asked:
April 9, 2013
I think I'm ready to purchase this bundle, but am a total noob when it comes to home theaters / multi-room setup. Ideally, I want to control my 5.1 system with a detached amp and separately power 4-zones independent (or concurrent) with same audio as the 5.1 system. Below is a short list for reference: • 5.1 – family room • Zone 1 – kitchen (mono) • Zone 2 – living room (mono) • Zone 3 – patio (stereo) • Zone 4 – backyard (stereo) I’ll do my best to summarize my thoughts: • Line-in 1 = iphone dock • Line-in 2 = 5.1 stereo speaker system • Each zone will have separate volume controls • Using the speaker selector (or volume controls), can I: o Watch TV in family room and play music to all zones? o Play music in all 5 locations? o Play tv in all 5 locations? Again, I apologize for my silly request, but I need a detailed response and/or wiring diagram for the above requested setup. Thanks to all in advance for you assistance!

Hi Matthew, Consider uploading your whole house audio plans on our Learning Center section. This way we can offer the best advice and provide a complete quote package for your system. You’ll need an AV receiver with a second room output to play different sources in the home theater and 2nd room. Check out the Yamaha RS-V673 that features Network access to the internet as well as apps to control your system through your tablet or Smartphone. Click on Learning Center Tab (top right hand corner) of our website, then click on upload plans. It will ask you to describe your system while adding diagrams, blueprints or even pictures of your rooms. Be sure to also check out our custom Home Theater area for some great tips. OSD can be a one stop shop providing everything you need; all you will have to provide is the Flat Panel TV. TL/MA-1785

SGH
from California asked:
February 19, 2013
I am trying to put together a whole house audio system. I currently have an old Carver Receiver with 130 watts/channel, a Sonos Connect (no amp), an old pair of Infinity bookshelf speakers (8 ohm) and a pair of Bose wall mount speakers (4 ohm). At the moment, the plan is for 4 zones though one of them may end up dedicated to a subwoofer. My dilemma is: should I hang on to the Carver and use it with an impedance matching speaker selector (with or without volume control?) or purchase a multi-zone amplifier. I have been considering a 12 channel amp from Dayton (would install volume controls for each zone). This 4 room kit provides yet another option.
1 Answers
Hi SGH, For your application, we recommend purchasing the OSD Audio 4-zone multi-room audio kit and using the AMP200 to drive your speakers. Ideally, the volume controls will do the impedance matching set @ 4x. Turn the 'protection' off on the speaker selector to avoid having both components doing the impedance matching. CL/MA 1644

how many speakers can run be run per zone??
1 Answers
HI David: Technically with the 8X setting on the Volume Controls you could connect up to 2 pair of speakers per Zone x 4 or 8 total pairs for the system. One pair per zone would mean setting the impedance switch to 4x, 5 or more the setting goes to 8x on all four zones. TL
