Matt • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, I'm planning to use the following 70v amp (http://www.markertek.com/Attachments/Specifications/Behringer/AX6240Z-Specifications.pdf) Can I use this product with NO volume knobs to help distribute to areas that are hard to reach and shorten some of my runs? I assume one channel goes to one input, the other goes to the other input, and then I have up to 8 outputs to daisy chain. I only plan on using say 4(?). Any help is appreciated.

A Hi Matt: What do you mean by this? Can I use this product with NO volume knobs to help distribute to areas that are hard to reach and shorten some of my runs? Are you asking if you can use this with volume controls or no volume controls. Can you describe your whole system and what you are trying to accomplish. The Amp you have chosen has plenty of power certainly enough for four speaker runs. You might also reach out to Behringer with the same question. We will have a 12 channel 70V/8 ohm amplifier for sale shortly. TL/3675
Quincy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I bought this connecting block to run multiple speakers. I have a separate receiver that I will run for my zone 2 audio. The receiver is a Pioneer VSX-530 5.1, 140W X 5 @ 6OHMS. THE problem I'm having with this hub is, when I connect my speakers to the L/R output, music play out of the left speaker but doesn't come out of the right speaker. It appears to be something with the right side of this connecting block. Can anyone help me. I went through a thorough troubleshooting process and still can't get both speakers to play together with this connecting block.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Quincy: What Receiver are you connecting the Pioneer VSX-530 to the ZONE 2 Pre amp output? How many zones did you connect for the SPW8? Did you test the right and left output of the receiver directly to a pair of speakers to confirm both right and left work? Are you using Volume Controls for each pair of speakers you connect to the SPW-8 as we suggest you do when using this with multiple speakers? Did you try switching the left and right input to see if the right speakers play the left channels and maybe the left channels don't play. That is another way of seeing if you have a bad channel from the Receiver. Or you may have too many pairs of speakers with no speaker protection. Please let us know what you find out. TL/3766
Just Wondering • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can I put 25 volts in the input and it split it to the 8 outputs?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Just Wandering I believe as long as you have a 25V signal and transformers on all your speakers you will be connecting, you should be able to use it for your application. The SPW-8 features a Stereo input with 8 Stereo zone outputs.I am thinking you will be able to split your input signal and connect one to right and the other to the left. Then technically you will have 18 total mono outputs. The box is really a glorified patch bay with no protection circuit in line. That is why we recommend you use Impedance matching Volume Controls when running 4 or 8 ohm. Good Luck TL/3803
Philip • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have a Speakercraft BB2125 high current amplifier driving a pair of AP850's, an RS850TT, a pair of AP670 and a pair of Speakcraft Rox 820 (the weakest link and soon to be replaced). I have each of these 4 zones controlled with OVC-100 controller. What impedance setting should I set the amplifier to, the 4 or 8 ohm setting? Do you think I could add one more pair of speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Phillip: You should have the Impedance setting on the OVC-100 at 4X and the Power Amplifier at 4 ohm. Are you using a/our speaker selector (like the DSM4)? You could add a second pair of Speakers to any one of the other pairs and keep the Impedance Setting to 4 ohms and 4X on all of the OVC-100. I would be more comfortable if you had a OVC-300 (versus the OVC-100) to run both the two pair of speakers off the one Volume Control. Our RS 850's would be a good replacement for the ROX820 (which are good speakers) Good Luck TL/3969
ben-Nabiy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Is this able to work with a 70v system? I am running a 2 channel (stereo) 70 V system with appropriate transformers at the speakers... Could I use this pre- volume control to distribute the signal to all my zones, or is this better post volume control? Thank you!
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Ben-Nabiy The SPW-8 should work fine for your application especially 70V stereo. The SPW8 is a patch bay the takes a single input and splits up to 8 zones wired in parallel. Put it in Pre-Volume Controls. TL/4023
