Lifetime Tech Support

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 60 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-50 includes an easy access impedance switch that lets you set the impedance without opening the box.

Terry Joplin • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have a stereo with speaker output A & B. Out put A is hooked to two out door speakers next to our pool. Out put B is hooked to two out door speakers on our deck. What can I use to control the speakers on the deck without changing the speakers by the pool?

Hi Terry, Use our OVC100 on the speakers that you want to be lower in volume. The volume control will not add any volume, only subtract the volume.
Jeff • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have an existing outside speaker volume switch that has corroded out so it needs to be replaced. The existing volume switch installed around 2008 is controlling 4 outdoor rock speakers and it is Model VC09050CN with Rating 50W. Is your OVC50 outdoor volume control compatible with this existing switch?

Hi Jeff: The OVC-50 would work for you application but I would consider stepping up to either the OVC-100 or OVC-300. The OVC-50 would be better for a single pair of speakers, you are connecting 2 pair so the larger transformer would be more desirable. Both white or gray are available. TL/3757
Wayne • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Do these controls have speaker wires already i stalled inside them? thanks...Wayne
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Wayne: All of our OVC Outdoor Volume Controls have a four sets of 2 conductor wires. Blue/Black Left input, Red/Black Right input, White/Black Left Output and Green/Black Right Output. They feed out of the bottom of the water proof housing. The 3/4" opening. This is also where you access the impedance matching switch as well. Note: The OVC50 is 50 watts peak and 25 watts RMS. You might want to step up to the OVC100 or even OVC300. TL/4948
Michael • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM i have an ICE 610 Ceiling Speaker (6 1/2). What Volume control would you recommend?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Michael: I always recommend going with the highest rated Volume Control that is available. The ICE610 rated at 125 Watts peak and 70 Watts RMS. The OVC rated at 300 watts Peak and around 150 Watts RMS. But the key is how this volume controls work. There is no increase in the gain involved in these passive devices. Whatever volume level you have your source/amplifier source determines the highest output from your Volume Control where the knob is turned all the way clockwise or fully open. Then as you turn the Volume knob counterclockwise, it attenuates the sound 3dB a click at a time. It diverts the signal into the Transformers (left and right stereo). You want to make sure that the volume becomes inaudible long before you over saturate the transformer. If your transformer rated below your total power, it will distort before it becomes inaudible (you don't hear any sound). So in your case, I would recommed the OVC300. TL/5360
JAMES • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I currently have a pair of outdoor rock speakers with 100 W and 8 ohms specs.  The volume control which  has corroded was 60 W speakercraft outdoor volume contol.  This is rated 50 W  Would it be sufficient to replace it
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi James:You would need to step up to a minimum of the OVC100 or even up to the OVC300. The rule of thumb, you need to select a Volume Control rated at a higher power rating than the speaker connected to the Volume Control. You do not want to saturate the transformers. Note, the Impedance settings are calculated based upon the total number of 8-ohm connections in parallel you have at the amplifier. TL/5616
