Lifetime Tech Support

The SSVC4 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 screw down terminals to 14 gauge cable. The SSVC's feature 16 gauge steel construction with our durable black wrinkle powder coating and gray silk-screening. Compatible with all high-power amps up to 300W, the front-mounted master A/B switch allows you to toggle between two audio sources; for instance, switch from music streamed from your tablet or receiver with just a push of a button. 

Features:
  • Dual source speaker selector that distributes audio from a high current amplifier to up to six pairs of speakers or six separate zones
  • Includes individual volume control knobs to raise or lower the volume of each listening zone
  • Front-mounted master A/B switch lets you turn sources either on or off
  • Play one pair, a combination of pairs, or all four pairs simultaneously and adjust the volume to suit each zone
  • Impedance protection allows a single amplifier to safely power several pairs of speakers
  • Autoformer-based operates more efficiently than resistor-based selectors
  • Compact table top design or fits inside cabinets and equipment racks
  • Four individual zone on/off slotted buttons for easy labeling
  • Removable input/output connectors provide hassle-free hook-up
  • Compatible with all high-current amplifiers up to 300W
  • Accepts up to 14-gauge speaker cable
  • High quality metal construction
Impedance-Matching Protection Safeguards Amplifiers
To help protect expensive audio equipment, this 4-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.

Andy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q This looks like just what I need. But so I understand when I am matching an amp and speakers.... Does the selector split the wattage between channels? So, if say, I use a 100 watt amp and 4 sets of speakers, will each receive 25 watts? AND if I select only one set of speakers and have the other 3 pairs switched off, does the pair that is being used see 25 watts or 100 watts? Or have I got this all wrong? :) I am trying to decide what wattage of speakers would be suited to a given amp wattage... Thanks for any help, Andy

A Hi Andy, What you want to look for are speakers similar in power rating and (at a minimum) rated to handle the power of the amplifier (connected to the speaker selector) if they were the only pair connected. If you have an amplifier like our AMP120, which is rated at 50 watts per channel, you need speakers rated at a minimum of 50 watts per channel. There are other factors involved but following this simple rule will have you covered. TL/MA 1456
L • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I am considering the SSVC4 for my set up and want to make sure it will work. I have a 2-zone Onkyo receiver and on zone 2 I have 2 sets of outdoor speakers (in parallel), each with a OVC300 volume control located outside by the speakers. This setup works great. I have great sound from each set of speakers. I now want to connect the zone 2 to a SSVC4, separate each of the outside speaker sets into a separate zone on the SSVC and also connect to 1 of the 2 remaining zones to a set of speakers in another inside room. All speakers are 8 ohm. I would like to keep the outside volume controls. Will this set up work? Can I have the outside volume controls after the SSVC4? Should I keep the volume control at the SSVC4 on max and control the outside speakers' volume with the OVC300? The only set of speakers that I really need the volume control for is the third zone that will power the additional room. If I have only the zone for that room turned on the SSVC4 (the 2 outside zones are turned off), is it passing all the power from the receiver to that room only? Is there a switch on the SSVC4 that adjusts the impedance, just like on the OVC300? what should it be set to? Thanks!

A The OVC300 has impedance matching, as well as the SSVC4. However, you do not want both components performing impedance matching. We would not recommend the setup you describe. Your zone 2 is really meant for a pair of speakers, not a speaker selector. We recommend adding an amplifier like our AMP200 with a speaker selector without volume controls, like the DSM4. You would go from your receiver to the amp, then to the speaker selector then to the volume controls and then on to the speakers in that order. CL/MA 1465

A CL is right. You really need to go to an external amplifier when connecting additional speakers to your second zone. You have done a nice job utilizing the OVC300s to configure your two outdoor speakers. What we suggest is adding an OSDAMP200 then connecting your two outdoor speakers just like you have it now to Speaker A of the AMP. You can then either add the third (inside Zone to Speaker B). Assuming you do not have the ability to connect an external volume control for this new zone, you could add either a SSVC1 or a SSVC2 with potential for a 4th zone. The SSVC speaker selector would be optional and could be added if you feel you would need to use the Volume control. You would have on off buttons for Speaker A and B on the front panel of the AMP200. TL/MA - 1465
Dr B • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have a Yamaha RX-V2095 AV receiver. I want to add additional speakers, e.g. outdoor speakers, bedroom etc. I am thinking of using the SSVC 4 to control the speakers and volume. I did this before just using one of the speaker output and dividing, I do not think that is best option. There are ways to connect an external amplifier and then a speaker selector. What are the best options here?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Dr. B, A simple recommendation is to go with our AMP200 connected to the Preamp Room 2 output of the Yamaha RX-V2095. Then, add the SSVC4 to the AMP200 to control your four zones. The Yamaha has a dedicated room2 output that allows you to play a different source for your room 2 at the same time you are using the receiver for surround sound. You can connect a single pair of speakers to each zone of the SSVC4 or a single Dual Voice Coil speaker where you have room for a single speaker. We have these available for in-Ceiling (ICE640TT), Rock Speakers (RS850TT) or even Patio versions (AP550TT). You also can connect up to two pair of speakers to a specific zone. The SSVC4 has internal jumpers to make adjustments to the impedance settings depending on how many speakers you connect to it. This will entail removing the cover of the unit and changing the jumpers. Note: The Impedance setting as noted in your attachment only pertains to the speakers you have connected for surround sound. It has no effect on the preamp setting. We would be happy to discuss your overall whole house audio design. Good luck! TL/MA- 1510
chris • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I don't quite understand what comes out of the receiver and from where to go into this. Is it out of the receivers native speakers outputs?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Chris, Our speaker selectors are all passive devices which help organize the speaker level outputs from your receiver (an amplified signal). A standard speaker selector features four, six or eight zone connections with a dedicated on/off switch per zone (like our ISS4, 6 or 8). It also features a button labeled for protection to be used in case you are connecting the speakers directly to the speaker selector without impedance-matching volume controls. The step up to the ISS series is the DSSM which operates the same way as the ISS but adds an independent A/B switch per each zone allowing you to select between two different sources. The protection switch operates the same as the ISS series. Now the SSVC series speaker selectors you reference to in your initial question is part of our speaker selectors that feature a dedicated built-in Impedance-matching volume control for each zone.
