The SPW-8 is a stereo (two channel), one input, eight output, broad frequency response, volume control distribution hub. It provides a simple solution in complex speaker installations providing an easy way to connect from two to eight volume controls and pairs of stereo speakers to a single stereo receiver/amplifier. All outputs are labeled easing both connection and troubleshooting of a system

26 Questions asked on SPW-8 Eight Zone Speaker Distribution Panel

Chuck • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I'd like to reverse the mode. Instead of one input going to several speakers, I would like to set this up so that input from any one of three (don't need eight) amplifier locations goes to one set of speakers (so one set of speakers is connected to what is called the input, and the terminals designed for output to the speakers are the inputs from the amp) . Of course the amp would only be plugged in at one location at a time, I just want the option to move the amp around to another location in the room from time to time. Will that work?

A Hi Chuck, That is an interesting idea to use our product, but it would not be possible with the SPW-8. However, it would be possible with either our AB-1.2 inwall A/B switch or the ATM-7 speaker selector. With the A/B switch you are able to do 2 sources to 1 set of speakers or vice versa. With the ATM-7 you would be able to do 1 source to 7 sets of speakers or vice versa. Hope that helps. CS 2546
Dorian • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can this handle a 100v AP system amplifier?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Dorian, Not too sure about that, although it is intended specifically for 8ohm amps. Do you have the model of the amp you are referring to?
JFM • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q If I were to use a set of relays to control the device rather than volume controls (zero resistance or infinite resistance) would that work or is there a need for specific pull up/pull down on the control lines. If there is a specific control need, would you post it if possible?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi JFM: All I know is that unit we stock this unit for specific applications involving connecting up to eight pairs of speakers to a single output from our Power Amplifiers we sell. It is setup to connect all the wires in parallel which creates a problem when connecting to an Amplifier that wants to see a 4 to 8 ohm load so it can work in a safe operating level. That is why we can not stress enough the need to use Impedance Matching Volume Controls to protect the Amplifier. I am not familiar enough with how the relays would work in this application. Maybe it would help you described what you are trying to accomplish. What is your application, what are you connecting the input and outputs to... Hopefully that helps TL/3127
Debbie • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Any idea when you will have this item back in stock? Thank you, Debbie~
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Debbie, I believe we should have this item available again sometime in May or June. If you are in a rush, we do have our ISS8 speaker selector which is fairly similar, albeit with impedance protection and on/off capability for each zone.
James • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Does this unit divide the wattage evenly across all active zones, or all zones? I'm going to use a secondary receiver to this unit, then from here go to two different OCV305Rs One of those (porch) will go on to two PS525 speakers the other (Garden) will go to 2 pair of RX550 Rock speakers So, question being, if I use this, will it divide the available power evenly between the two zones in use, or will each zone only get 1/8th the total available power?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hello James, Yes - the power going through this device will be split evenly amongst all outputs, but of course if the speakers vary on each output, you may have different volume levels. This unit is out-of-stock at the moment and we are expecting more in late June or early July. You can also use the ISS8.
