    Speaker Volume Controller RMS 100W (Rotary Type) - White

    This is a rotary-type wall plate volume control for speaker systems with power ratings of up to 100 watts per channel and impedance ratings of 4 to 16 ohms. This rotary control can be set to one of twelve positions, including the minimum (off) and maximum volume settings.

    The wall plate mounts into a standard single-gang, low-voltage wall bracket (not included) and has inputs and outputs for one pair of stereo speaker wires (4 input connections and 4 output connections). It can accept speaker wire in sizes from 14 to 16 gauge and provides a frequency response range of 35 Hz to 20 kHz (+0/-2db) at the full power rating of 100 watts per channel.

    Please note: This volume control does not include a wall mounting bracket.

    When setting up the speaker volume controls, it is important to match the impedance of your speaker system with the load rating of your amplifier. This is done by setting the jumpers on the volume control to compensate for the number of speakers you have in a parallel configuration and the impedance level of the speakers.

    If using a single pair of speakers rated at the same load level as your amplifier, you don't need to make any changes - just leave the jumper in the default x1 position. However, if your speakers are of a different impedance level and/or you have more than one set of speakers in parallel, please refer to the following chart as a guide for setting the jumpers on the speaker volume control.

    Note that for any speakers wired in series, the overal impedance level is the sum of each speaker. So two 4 ohm speakers wired in series is the same impedance as a single 8 ohm speaker.

    White is not so White
    Had to get a 2 gang box and keep the one side blank, as this wouldn't fit into a regular single gang old-work box. Didn't want to use a low voltage ring, as the audio transformers would get dust all over them.

    The Decora Face and knob on this are NOT WHITE. When i put the white plate cover on, it's VERY off-white.

    PROS: Works greatrotary knob is BIG

    CONS: unit is very big won't fit in all elec. boxes.

    Excellent Product
    Product arrived in great condition, installed easily, and currently operates as expected.

    PROS: Great Price!

    Great product
    Fairly easy to install, clear instructions. Works well. I have it installed for 2nd zone speakers on a porch, works great, and makes it so you don't have to go inside to change the volume.

    PROS: Works well.

    CONS: Requires very deep outlet box, not standard box

    Rotary Audio Volume Control (100 watt handling capability)
    5/5

    PROS: Nice design. Perfectly match my existing Decora light switch plates. Little to zero loss in sound quality and volume. Knob has discreet settings and I like the subtle "click" sounds as the knob is rotated.

    CONS: After very little use, for reasons unknown, turning the knob felt like gum was stuck inside. The nice clicking sound disappeared, the knob was a chore to turn, and it felt rubbery, which rendered this volume control to be completely unacceptable. I purchased seven of these, but have only used one, so far, as part of a test setup before installing the rest of them throughout my house. It may be that this defect may be isolated to the one VC that I chose to use, but I'm not taking a chance and will return the rest for a refund.

    As Good as Best Buy
    I bought these after going to Best Buy and finding them there for $70 each with out impedance matching. These have impedance matching and work great.

    PROS: Cost about $15

    Work as intended
    These do exactly what they are supposed to do at a reasonable price. I have a two rarely used rooms and the garage left in my whole house audio project and will buy these again.

    PROS: Inexpensive, impedance matching.

    CONS: None
