Features & Specifications

Save on costs without skimping on sound with the 6 Zone Multi-room Audio Kit for Housewide Audio available at Outdoor Speaker Depot. You can fill your entire home with rich-sounding audio that includes a high current amplifier, volume controls and a speaker selector. The type of music you favor should influence the type of speaker you use with this easily installed audio kit: choose the Custom Series for easy listening, High Definition series to bring out bass or Kevlar Series for critical listening that accentuates every minute detail in a recording. The 6 Zone Multi-room Audio Kit allows you to control the volume in each room from the volume control in that room, so you can connect just about any source that uses RCA and/or a 3.5mm cable, such as an iPhone, iPad, laptop or CD Player. Order from Outdoor Speaker Depot on a weekday and your kit should ship out the same day the order is placed.

How to choose the right speaker size?
Choosing speakers based on room size is quite simple. Our 5 1/4" speakers are great for smaller rooms (150 sq ft room or less). If the room is larger, go with a 6 1/2" speakers, and rooms greater than 400 sq ft will benefit from our 8" models.

What speaker type should I choose?
This depends on your budget and what kind of performance you expect from speakers. Our Custom Series speakers are great for background level to easy listening music. If you like your tunes on the louder side and prefer deep bass, think about our High Definition series. If you are a top-of-the-line type of listener who hears every little detail, you will love our Kevlar series speakers. The Kevlar series has the best overall sound and is suitable for critical listening such as home theater use and for the audiophile listeners. We also have Trimless models for those who wish to have the speakers that blend in with the decor.

Kit comes included with:
(1) AMP300 amplifier

Hi I live in Sweden and bought a Breathe Audio BA6640 system from you. The ampfilier is now broken and i need to buy a New one. Do you have any that Will work with this system so i dont need to replace eirering, volymkontroll etc Really need help with this because i miss My music in the house Best regards Diana

Hi Diana: WE no longer carry any Breathe Audio components. The last we heard was they had 7 units left in the LaGrand's, North Carolina Warehouse. Breathe Audio was created by NUVO when they were in their heyday and trying to sell to the Mass Market including Best Buy and Tweeter (since gone bankrupt). NUVO was purchased within the last 5 years by LaGrand a world wide company. You can ciontact NUVO: NUVO TECHNOLOGIES 3015 Kustom Drive Hebron, KY USA 41048 +1 866.796.4904 +1 866.889.1026 Or there were two other Distributors who might have some B stock. Parts Express In Dyaton Ohio and A large distributor in Canada named Erickson. One other thought is to contact Nuvo and ask about upgrading to their Essentia. It is a newer version of the Breathe Audio that operated just like the Breathe Audio. It has six zones and a new kit would feature six new control pads that actually operate two way communication so you have Metadata that shows not only what source but more info like station and artist. You would have to swap out the wall unit directly behind the control unitbut it comes with the kit. You might also ask them about a European version which may haves square key pads. Worse case it has key pads that will drop in exactly where your current Breathe Audio keypads are mounted.You would not have to run any new wires or Cat5 cables. Just a thought,. NUVO maybe able to recommend a European distributor Retailer in or near Sweden. I know this because I worked for NUVO when they first discontinued the Breathe Audio line. TL/4510

Hi Mike, The amplifier is not the weak point here. The combination of our entry level speaker selector and 100-watt impedance-matching volume controls are the issue.

Hello - we just had a new home built and had prewiring down for whole house music. We have a pair of speakers in the Master Bedroom, office and covered patio. Also have 5 in the great room. I would like to set the great room up for surround sound for movies, but use for background music at times. Will this 6 Zone Multi-room audio kit work for what I'm looking to do. Also, if great room is being used for surround sound as well, I imagine these speakers may be different than the pair of speakers in the other 3 areas? Thanks for you help.
1 Answers
Hi Dave: Not sure if you need this bundle since you technically only have four zones including the home theater location. Plus you said you have already pre wired to the three zones. You did not mention whether your wired for Volume Controls in each location. The volume controls in the package are placed in the respective room/zone and you wire to the Volume control either using a single 4 conductor cable or two two conductor cables from the Speaker Selector. Then from the volume controls you run a two conductor speaker wire to each speaker in that room. For the three zones you could pick out an AMP200 which you would connect to the Zone 2 pre amp outlet of your 7.2 Audio/Video Receiver. Most Audio Video Receiver can be placed in a two channel stereo mode and play background music when not used for Home Theater. Maybe if you can contact me and let me know exactly how your system is laid out I can be more help. My contact info: tim@osdaudio.com TL/4668

Ian Gilbert
from Saint louis asked:
March 20, 2016
I moved into a new house with speakers in at least 4 rooms and out back on the patio. They're all ran to a central place and some at least are marked. Every room with speakers has a dial in the wall with an IR looking circle on it. I don't know anything about any of this. What do I need to make all this nonsense work?
1 Answers
HI Ian: A basic plan would be to add a Power Amplifier to a speaker selector. and connect all your wires coming into the central location to the speaker selector which will connect to the single output of the Amplifier. You would not need the Volume controls that are included in the 6 zone multiple audio bundle since you already have them in the respective zones. You could go with the more affordable AMP200 and the ISS6 Speaker selector. It sounds like you have a five zone system. You can easily figure out which wire goes to which set of speakers. You will need a nine volt battery (small rectangular battery with +/- on the top) and an assistant. You will hold the negative wire (if 2 conductor, the wire with the black jacket) on the negative (-) post and then tap the positive (+) conductor (red jacket) to the Positive (+) post. This is where the assistant comes in. They will be in one of the rooms and see if they can hear a popping sound coming from the speaker as you tap the positive conductor to the post. Once you determine the two wires for that room, mark the outer jacket with a sharpie labeling the room L & R speakers. Repeat this for each room until they are all labeled. It sounds like you have IR sensors built into the Volume Controls. I would like to help you further but need some feedback. First would be to get images of the speakers for each room including the Outdoors. Then take a picture of each Volume Control for all zones. You may have an outdoor volume control or an inside volume control mounted near the door to the outside. One other note, make sure the Volume controls are turned to fully open , turned all the way clockwise so you can hear the popping from the speaker in the room. I will be able to tell more seeing the components you have. Last thing would be to take a picture of central location where all the wires come out of the wall. Need to know if there is some sort of interface on the wall or if the wires are all just come a hole in the wall. Also you may notice that the cables coming into the central location are four conductor not just two. The four conductor has red (+) and Black (-) plus a white (usually +) and Green (-). If this is what you have pop the red and black, then white and green which should be the right and left speakers for the respective zone. If you want me to help you further please take the pictures I suggested and send me an email to tim@osdaudio.com and attache the images. The images will give me a better idea of what is going on and then I can contact you again to discuss your system. Good luck TL/3765

What speakers would you suggest for outdoors for simular quality.
1 Answers
Hi John, This is a great system to run 6 pairs of speakers running one music source at a time. If you are hoping to run multiple music sources simultaneously, unfortunately this system won't be able to do that. Since it's analog, there's no way to connect wirelessly unless you get yourself a wireless or Bluetooth adapter/receiver that can plug into the amp via RCA cable.

November 1, 2012
HI: I am about to embark on a Multi room audio set up as well as a home theater system. I have already got the 4 core speaker wiring installed to the indoor and outdoor audio locations as well as volume control locations/boxes in each room. I think I have 5 zones ( 5 separate pairs of speakers) plus 2 outdoor speakers and a single master bathroom speaker which I guess I can install as part of the other zones. That is, I assume one of the zones can have 2 pairs of speakers( this is for an outdoor patio and an outdoor loggia area) , and the other zone one pair of speakers and a single speaker (this is for a master bedroom and master bathroom setup). For the home theater I am looking at either a 5.1 or 7.1 system depending on how I would connect the house system. I plan on multiple inputs for the home theater/stereo surround sound system (DVD, CD, Internet, Turntable, tuner etc) and an LED flat panel TV. I would want to be able to imput audio to the house system from the CD player, tuner/receiver and internet radio. So, I am trying to determine what to buy for: Speakers Volume Controls multi zone amplifier if needed for house system Home theater/surround sound amp/receiver for that. And then, how to wire it all together so that I dont blow anything up or fry anything. Thanks for your input and recommendations.

Do I need to have all 6 zones hooked up? I only have 4 zones and the 4 zone system is out of stock. Can I use plain speaker wire?
1 Answers
Hi Don, You can use four of the zones and everything will work fine. Our 4 zone system is out of stock because the ISS4 (speaker selector) is sold out. You can substitute the ISS4 with a dual source 4-zone unit, the DSM4, and still use the AMP200 in the four zones with the same volume controls. You can also go with the six-zone kit. Either method will work. Give us a call if you have further questions: 1.888.779.4968 CL/MA 1281

from Wisconsin asked:
August 7, 2012
I have a question about the impedance setting for my size zone system. I have one pair of speakers in three separate zones (3 sets in total). Then, I have two pairs of speakers wired in parallel in the fourth zone. So, should I consider this 4 pairs or 5 pairs of speakers for the impedance? And, does it matter if I have a fifth zone wired, but no speakers attached (to be used as some future date)? Thanks!
1 Answers
Hi Mick: Technically with 3 zones having a single pair and a fourth with 2 pair you would need to set your impedance setting to 8X (for 5, 6, 7 or 8 pair). That is I am assuming you are connecting to a speaker selector powered by a second zone output from an AV receiver then it would definitely need to be 8X setting for all four volume controls. It would also be ready to add a fifth zone (which would be set at 8x as well) at a later date. Please let us know what your complete system setup is if you need additional clarification. TL

Mick, You can wire the sets in parallel to one volume controller. Be sure to set the setting to 8X because assumedly you are driving 6-8 pairs. Be sure to leave the protection OFF on the speaker selector, because you are using on the volume controls. CL

Brian
from NH asked:
May 22, 2012
Can you run more than just 2 speakers per zone? I envision 6 or 8 speakers in a deck / patio area (1000 +/- SF) and plan to use it as a single zone, while eventually installing additional zones inside the house.
1 Answers
Hi Brian, Whether you are running one, two or even a number of pairs in a zone, you need to address the impedance matching issue. That is one of the chief reasons for adding volume controls, speaker selectors or a combination of both for an elaborate system where you need to address the impedance matching of the speakers to the amplification. Outdoor volume controls are very helpful in setting up an outdoor system especially when you are dealing with multiple locations. I would be more than happy to review a diagram of your layout of the deck/patio area so I can offer some suggestions. Please feel free to contact me at tim@osdaudio.com. I can respond with a wiring diagram for you as well. TL/MA TL

If I want to run 6 zones, can I just use a speaker switch rather than buying an amp too?

Hi Bryan, The speaker selector is a passive device, meaning it only distributes the power it receives and will not power your speakers. You would need an amp or receiver to power the speakers. CL

I have a JVC receiver that receives RCA inputs from several sources and amplifies signal to two sets of speakers. I want to increase the number of rooms I have music in. The only output on the JVC are the two sets of speaker outputs, which are the push-button outputs that accept a bare speaker wire. Can I use speaker wire to connect one of these outputs to an input on the AMP300? What that means is connecting an amped signal to the AMP 300. Thanks.
1 Answers
Hi Chris: The OSD-AMP300 accepts either a signal level (pre-amplified) or Speaker Level input (amplified). It is ideal for your application based upon your question. It takes the speaker level and converts to un-amplified then directs it back through the internal amplifier of the AMP-300. The unit features dual source inputs either two signal levels or one signal level and one speaker level. When you connect to the AMP300 make sure you connect to input #2. It will also give you a signal level output in case you might want to add a powered sub. The signal level outputs only affects whatever is connected to input number 2 wheter it is signal level or speaker level. TL

Would this unit be suitable to accept a preamp line output from a stereo reciever and connect an ISS4 speaker selector to each of the AB speaker outputs to power 2 stereo speakers with volume controls in 8 zones? If so, what would the package price be for the amplifier unit with one ISS4 and seven volume controls as I have purchased one volume control and one ISS4 unit from you previously?
1 Answers
Yes, this amplifier is ideal for this application both for the line output from your receiver (plus you can add a second source at the amplifier as well) and to drive the (2) ISS4 speaker selectors while utilizing our impedance matching volume controls: one connected to speaker A and the second connected to speaker B. Note: you will need to make sure the protection button on the two ISS4 selectors is disabled (in the off position). And if you connect a single pair of speakers to each volume control, you will set the impedance matching to 4x on each VC. If you add a second speaker in anyone of the zones, you will need to change the setting for all the volume controls connected to the common ISS4 to 8x. You can get away with having up to two pairs for all eight volume controls as long as you use the 8x setting where instructed and the protection switch of the speaker selector is disabled. The High Current AMP300 would have no problem driving this load. Regarding question number two, we would offer you the same $499.95 price for the AMP300, (1) ISS4 and 7 each of the SVC100 volume controls We also have a large selection of speakers for any and all applications, thanks for buying from OSD.

This system will work perfectly fine whether your Yamaha receiver has a low-level signal out or only a speaker level output. The AMP300 has multiple input connections to handle any application. It will also give you a second source option as well. This will provide plenty of power to the whole system. OSD also has a number of affordable speaker options for in-wall, in-ceiling, patio or rock speakers. You can also add powered subwoofers to your system as well.
