26 Questions asked on AB-1.2 Inwall Decora A/B Speaker Selector Switch

Brian • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have an in-wall speaker hooked up to my 7.1 receiver. It's on an outside wall. I want to connect an outdoor speaker to the same wire and switch back and forth from each speaker. Is it possible with this switch? Thank you.

A Hi Brian, Yes with the AB-1.2, you would be able to switch between the 2 speakers on the one amp/receiver. You would run from the amp/receiver into this switch and run each speaker on the separate outputs. CS 3704
Joey • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have a PA system that has two intercom speakers and I need to switch from one speaker to the other. Would this switch work for that?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Joey: Yes this should work for your application, just make sure you pick either the right or the left speaker only on both the input and output since you have just a two wire Mono connection (+/-). The switch has a 4 conductor stereo connection and you will only want to use two of the four connections. Good luck TL/3812
Brian • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q The 100w max handling, is it per speaker or per zone?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Brian: It would be per speaker, remember this is an A or B switch so only one speaker would be playing at a time so each could be rated at 100 Watts. TL/4102
ben-Nabiy Derush • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Will this item work in the case of 70v amps? I have two different 70v amps which I would like to switch between for feeding the audio for a set of zones. Will this work for that?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Ben: This is just a pass through switch unlike our SVC-405 which is an impedance matching Volume Control with A/B switch switch. I think it would work. You would hook Amp 1 to A connecting to Right Positive and negative (common) and adding a jumper to Left Positive from right positive and a jumper to the left negative from the right negative. This will give you two zone on the output side, zone 1 would be right positive and negative and zone 2 would be left positive and negative. Add the amp 2 to the B input the same as you did amp. Of course the speakers you choose must be be 70V and the total power of the speakers connected in both zone 1 and zone 2 must not exceed 80% of the listed power on either one of your two 70V amps. If you wanted additional control you could add one of our MVC 70V Mono Volume Controls to each of the two zones. They come in 25, 50 and 100 watt versions. Let me know if this will work for you; or if you need a diagram? tim@osdaudio.com TL/4323
Randy Scott • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, I have been trying to find an A / B speaker switch to match the diagram attached for you. Can you please tell me where I can get a switch to serve this purpose ?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Randy: Technically you are trying to run two sources but four zones. The Speaker Selector for your application is our SSVC4 Dual Source (switchable per zone). Source A would be your Front channel output and Source B would be for your rear channel outputs. Zone 1 and Zone 3 would be for Front channels and Zone 2 and Zone 4 would be for the Rear channels. So Zone 1 and 2 would be room #1 with Front and Rear speakers a pair for each. Zone 3 (Front) and Zone 4 (Rear) would be for room #2. You would also have an internal impedance matching volume control connected to each zone to provide the protection for your amplifier plus allows you to adjust the volume levels for each zone.That would handle your application and more. Good luck TL4738
