The SSVC2 is low-profile table top volume controls with individual A/B input selectors for each listening zone. The SVC300, a 300 watt autoformer volume control is utilized in each SSVC for uncompromised sound quality and performance. The spring-loaded guillotine-style push terminals accept up to 14 gauge cable. The SSVC's feature 16 gauge steel construction with our durable black wrinkle powder coating and gray silk-screening. The 8.5" chassis width of the SSVC2 or SSVC1 combines with other 8.5" wide OSD components to make a standard 17" wide unit.

Impedance-Matching Protection Safeguards Amplifiers
To help protect expensive audio equipment, this 6-zone high-power speaker selector includes impedance-matching frequency protection circuitry that reduces subsonic signals so you can safely drive multiple pairs of speakers without going below the amp's impedance ratings which can cause it to overheat or shut down.

Javier • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I'm looking towards the purchase of this item but I have a question: my home receiver has a second zone option and this is gonna be the output to the speaker selector. My concern is that my receiver outputs 90 w per channel and I'm don't know If this speaker selector will be damage the receiver(because of the 300w).
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMJavier, Our SSVC2 is a passive device, it distributes the power it receives so it wouldnt damage the receiver. Its maximum operating range is up to 300 watts so your 90 watts will work fine. CL
Scott • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I am setting up a whole home speaker system for a day spa, they want all of the rooms to project the same music. Picture relaxing environment. :) Will this work for a 5 room home, with at least 5 different speakers? Probably more along the line of 8 speakers.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Scott, To best answer your question we would need a little more information. How many rooms total including reception and possible office? Do you want to control the volume of each room from a central location (reception or office) or feature volume controls in each room? You can pick a speaker selector with up to 6 volume controls or use a speaker selector without internal volume controls. How big are the rooms? You can choose between ceiling speakers, either a single 8" dual voice coil like our OSD ICE840TT or a pair of speakers like our ICE640. Both of these would work for basic background music. Another choice would be our Patio Indoor/Outdoor on-wall speakers. What will your source be? We would recommend using our AMP200 with Automatic Source switching (select between two sources) and using a computer as your media source; there are a number of options for streaming content or using the iTunes or Window media libraries. Another system option would be to go with a 70 Volt system and utilize PA190 commercial Amp/Preamp, which features a microphone/paging system over background music. In this case we have many options for 70V speakers as well. Please feel free to contact us directly to discuss further. TL/MA [email protected]
lou • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM i have two questions about this. What if i am using one pair of 8 ohm and 1 paird of 4 ohm speakers. Also is i amd coming out of a mixer and want to go to the speaker selector than two amps will the selector work for that.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Lou: You should not have problem driving one pair of 8 ohm speakers and one pair of 4 ohm speakers. The 4 ohm speakers will play a little louder when volume controls are set to wide open. Regarding your second point this speaker selector is speaker level input connected after the Amplifer/Recievers. It features dual input (A or B) selectable per zone. The amplifiers would be between the mixer and speaker selector. I hope that answers your question. TL
Chris • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have a dual zone receiver/amp that I would like to use with this device. I plan on splitting the 2nd zone signal from my amp and sending it to 2 outdoor speaker pairs using this device. One pair will be on a run about 70 ft away. My questions are 1) should this device work and will I have enough power to power both sets of speakers simultaneously. 2). Will the impedance circuitry in this device help protect my amp.? 3). Will performance or volume be impacted by the 70 ft run of speaker wire, or when running both sets of speakers at the same time? Thanks
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Chris, The SSVC2 would enable you to do that and protect the receiver. The distance should not be a problem with standard 16 gauge, but if you are concerned you could run a 14 gauge. CL/MA 631
Bobby • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM My reciever is currently running my surround sound plus a pair of patio speaker. I am looking to add another pair of out side speaker with the ability to turn the patio speaker down with the new pair remaining loud. Will this product work for that? I noticed on the back it has 4 inputs and four speaker outputs. I will be using only 2 of those inputs will it still control all outputs for 2 pair of speakers like i want? If not is there another product you would recommend?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Bobby, The SSVC2 is a perfect addition to your application. It will allow you to add a second pair to Zone two output (channel 6 & 7) of your Audio Video Receiver. Not only does it allow you to control the volume of each pair but controls the Impedance matching of the two pairs to the single output of the Receiver. The SSVC2 also features an optional second source input and individual A & B switch for each pair. It works even if you only connect one of the sources.Good Luck. TL
