Hello! I have a situation where i am wanting to use one set of speakers with two different amps; One being my home stereo and the other my home theatre system that i will soon be setting up. I currently have a passive four zone non-powered speaker selector on the stereo system end that allows me to isolate by switching, if necessary, the speakers from the stereo amp source. I am considering doing the same for the home theatre unit. One would of course have to monitor the switching very carefully to avoid damaging either of the amps when selecting the power source. Is this concept practical? Doable? Is there a simpler speaker cut-off switching unit i could use? In fact i only really need a one zone cutoff. Any thoughts on this, what would you recommend? Thanks.......Craig.

Hi Craig: I would suggest looking at the DSM4 Speaker selector which features Dual Source input. I am assuming you have a pair of speakers that could do either whole house audio say zone 1, and you would like to be able to switch them to either Dolby Atmos or Surround effects speakers for your home theater. You would connect the four zones exactly as you have it currently. I am assuming Zone 1 speakers are slated for the dual role. You then would connect your stereo receiver used for whole house audio to Source A. Then connect the corresponding speaker wires from the two channels you want to power for your Home Theater to Source B. On the DSM4 you have independent on/off or source A or B switches per zone. So when you want to listen to whole house you select source A for zone 1. When you want to listen to Home Theater you select Source B. The only question would be are you using volume controls in the four zones or depending on internal protection for your whole house. What is the brand and model number of the current speaker selector? Please let me know so I can understand your system completely and can provide additional info. tim@osdaudio.com. I hope that helps (note: I have designed systems using this approach in the past). TL/4737

Does this come with rack mount hardware? Do you have something similar that is
2 Answers
Hi Rich, There are no specific rack mount ears packed with either of these products, however you can buy shelves for racks that will allow rack mounting without the rack ears. There may be some universal rack mounting kits as well. You should find some good results with a quick Amazon search. Thanks! -BM -2279

I have the Phoenix Gold 8 Zone Speaker Selector, and have my whole house wired with speakers already, speakers in backyard, front yard, kitchen, garage, and living room, now what is a decent and reasonably priced receiver to add with the speaker selector, and if anyone can give me some advise on what else will i need in order to get everything working nicely? I'm new to this so I'm still learning, thanks in advance. Cody

Cody, Thank you for contacting us. When doing multi-zone audio, you need a good amount of power to get everything working efficiently. Our AMP300 is a high current amplifier that can output 300 watts max. It is also recommended to use impedance matching volume controls when doing multi-zone, such as our SVC-300. The impedance protection on a speaker selector can use up 50% of the amp's power, whereas the volume controls shouldn't consume more than 10-15% of the power. -BM 2048
