    Speaker Volume Controller RMS 75W (Slide Type) - White

    This is a slider-type wall plate volume control for speaker systems with power ratings of up to 75 watts per channel and impedance ratings of 4 to 16 ohms. This slider 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 75 watts per channel.

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

    Support Files:

    Input 2 channels, 75 watts per channel
    Output 2 channels, 4 to 16 ohms impedance matching
    Frequency Response 35 Hz to 20 kHz (+0/-2 db) at rated power
    Wire gauge 14 to 16 AWG
    Material Plastic ABS
    Depth 2 3/4"

    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.

    Great product, works perfect A+

    PROS: Value, simple to install

    Easy to Install and Work Well
    I have 3 of these volume controllers installed in my office controlling 3 different sets of speakers. They were pretty simple to install and they look great on the wall. The only minor complaint I would have is the box that sits in the wall is a little bulky, I would definitely purchase them again.

    PROS: Fairly easy to install.
    Has clean look on wall.

    CONS: The box is a little bulky

    Another excellent product from Monoprice
    I will definitely be purchasing these volume controls again. They have a solid construction and are comparable to other controls I have purchased in the past for three times as much.

    We installed 4 of these and they work perfectly.

    Highly recommended.

    PROS: Easy to install, Solid construction, Looks and works Great!

    CONS: None

    Excellent Product
    Excellent product, solid construction. Variable impedance a plus. Purchased 5 with no DOA's. Easy to install, no issues!

    Slider Clicks
    Overall good control, feels nice and operates as expected

    PROS: Looks and feels nice, Clicks into place so you can adjust all the volume controls to the same setting

    CONS: Ordered 5 and 1 sticks as it goes down, not too bad but sometimes its annoying to push.

    Slider volume
    Works well once you have broken the switch a few times and had to remove the cover to repair.

    Knob would be better for kids or guest usage.

    PROS: Works great if you are careful. Doesn't distort sound or attenuate.

    CONS: Slider switch will come loose from the control if the volume is not moved in a slow controlled movement.

    I would avoid these
    Slide them up and down about 7-10 times prior to install and then they lost all slide resistance and failed completely. Glad I didn't waste my time installing them.

    PROS: Well they are white

    CONS: The slider moves hard. They feel cheap. Poor quality

    If it was 1 or 2 out of 4 I would have felt like it was bad luck of the draw but as other reviews mentioned, there's problems with the slide action. 4 out of 4 are like this and can't be used. 2 of them even came apart (the cover part) trying to work it back and forth. I'm pretty sure I've bought these in the past and they were fine so hopefully Monoprice will accept they have a defective batch, go through all of them and return the bad ones to the factory and get replacements (assuming at least some are OK). I would not buy again until seeing some indication that this has been done.

    PROS: Not any real pros when the units are simply defective

    CONS: 4 out of 4 defective
    December 1, 2014
    On August 17, 2015 I ordered 23 Speaker Volume Controller RMS 75W (Slide Type), 8245. After unboxing 4 units and attempting to install 3 units of the 23 units ordered, I found one inoperable and others difficult to move the slide up and down. It was apparent this product design was defective in that it was made with an inferior quality slide mechanism.

    The time spent in installing and uninstalling and testing three units led me to a logical conclusion that the design of the product was faulty and the failed units were not an aberration. I do not have the time or inclination to go through a lengthy process of replacing defective units with more defective units. If anyone at Monoprice simply takes a look at these controls they will confirm my conclusion they are an inferior product.

    Clearly, this product is inferior. Disappointed customer.

    PROS: For 5 years I placed numerous orders with Monoprice and I never had an occasion to return a product. I had always been pleased with the quality of the product received.

    CONS: Extremely poor quality product
