    8-Channel Speaker Selector

    Spread your sounds around your home or business with this Monoprice 8-Channel Speaker Selector!

    This speaker selector allows you to connect up to eight stereo speaker zones. Each zone can be individually toggled on or off with the front panel switch. Built-in impedance-matching circuitry ensures that the overall impedance level to the amplifier does not drop below 5 Ohms, no matter how many speaker zones are selected or how many speakers are in each zone.

    The impedance-matching protection circuitry can be disabled using a front-panel button, but this should only be done if there is another protection circuit employed or the system is carefully designed to avoid amplifier damage. The unit can handle up to 100 watts per channel with the protection circuitry enabled and up to 200 watts per channel with the protection circuit disabled.

    how do I connect the MS-8 to my receiver?

    Question about this unit .. So i have a Sony Stereo right now with 4 speaker outputs. I have 4 pioneer speakers connected and I want to connect 2 more speakers to my deck using the same receiver. Is this what these units are made for? So it will give me 6 outputs instead of 4 (well 8 total but i will only use 6 right now)? I don't want to degrade my sound quality I have now or have it be lowered and also don't want to have to buy another receiver and connect them. Would this be what im looking for? This acts like another A/B switch?
    Tom S on Mar 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You would install this as the output for one of your speaker pairs and then you would have 8 outputs instead of just the one. So you would have an A set of speakers and 8 sets of B speakers. This replicates a single set of speakers into 8 outputs of the same signal. It appears to be equivalent to the Niles Audio speaker selector which costs around 200 (if I remember correctly).
    What is the warranty on this product. What is your return policy if something does not work on it?

    I have this running zone2 on a denon avr s720w. Can I have different size speakers on the channels of this device? I have 4" in the bedroom, but want to put larger 6" or 8" in the patio and bonus room. Thanks
    David H on Jun 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes, you can have different sized speakers installed. Keep in mind that when you are adding speakers the wattage is going to be shared. Also be sure to keep the impedance the same with all the speakers.

    If you have additional questions feel free to reach out to our technical support team!
    Would this work to combine the left and right output from an amplifier into one speaker? The idea is to attach the left output from one "zone" button to a single speaker, and the right output from a different "zone" button to that same speaker. My client can only use one speaker outside, and I haven't been able to find a stereo-to-mono converter for speaker-level output.

    Great little unit
    Great price, nice item

    PROS: Very convenient, good size, great price

    I was looking for something that could use to help me solve my speaker issue I was having with Dennon receiver to allow me to utilize it as a whole house speaker system. With the speaker selector, I am able to utilize all the speakers in my home that I had pre-wired at build time and select which speakers I want playing at any given time. The 8 Channel speaker selector did the trick at the right price. There are plenty to choose from out on the market, but they are very cost prohibitive. The sound coming from speakers sound as though they are directly connected. I love it and will purchase another one to add some additional speakers.

    PROS: I don't have to use up all my speaker ports on my receiver. I just dedicate a few ports to channel selector and then I can add up to 8 more speakers without worrying blowing my receiver.

    CONS: None

    Works Perfectly
    Overall fit, finish and quality were very good. The connector size is tight for the speaker cable I am using but that is just nitpicking and the instructions were clear that my gauge was above the specs for the unit. I purchased two and bridged them to manage 15 zones and it worked perfectly

    Just simply works
    Was a bit confused with all the inputs and outputs, as it seems you could actually hook up 16 speakers. But there is a button on the front for single function. Hook up the B side on my receiver as the output to the monoprice speaker selector's input. So far have hooked up channels 8-6, and the thing just works. Zero problems. Feel no heat and hear no noise from the unit.

    PROS: No power required
    Excellent build
    Excepts 14 gauge speaker cable
    Price
    Worked without any hassle.


    CONS: None

    I use this with a denon X2000 zone 2 through a Yamaha 100W reciever(1988 model year). I have 7 zones hooked up. I have done several maximum volume tests, have not noticed any difference between any of the zones. Can really get the house rock in, I use the Denon app with a tablet to control volume and inputs with both zones, only draw back with my set up is individual volume and being able to turn zone off or on remotely. I used 14 gauge to the selector and 16 gauge from the selector. 14 gauge will work but 16 worked quite a bit better and no chance of the wire pulling out. When you hook up 8 pairs in a tight cabinet there are wires every where. If doing whole house audio and want an inexpensive way to accomplish your goal using this speaker selector is the way to go. Also when building a new house just run wire to each room and patio/deck is the best advice I can give even if you never hook those wires up.

    PROS: Solid construction, easy to hook up,

    CONS: None, for 30 dollars never expected this quailty

    My first one has been working for 2+ years feeding 8 zones without any trouble.



    I ordered 2 more since then,

    one for inside & outside the garage, and one sitting in a box waiting for me to set up a 2nd receiver system for in & outside the rest of the house.

    Great item at a cheap price,

    thanks Monoprice!

    Works Perfectly
    This unit works perfectly, as specified. Since this is a passive device (not externally powered) I was concerned that the volume would drop in each room as I turned on zones. I was pleasantly surprised that this is not a problem. I should state that my AV unit can handle 125 per channel, and that seems to be more than enough for this monoprice 8-channel selector to maintain consistent sound in each zone. The unit is also designed to handle between 100 and 200 watts depending on whether the circuit protection is turned on or off. That said, this unit keeps the speakers impedance within safe limits, no matter how many zones I have running at the same time.

    PROS: Does exactly what it should, distributes stereo sound to eight other sets of speakers in different areas of your house (eight zones). It is also a well constructed case. It is easy to set-up and you can use up to 14 awg speaker wires. It's completely quiet, and does not get hot.

    CONS: Only two SMALL cons. The labels are tiny, but they work. Not a big deal. And I'd love to see this unit have independent volume control on each zone. But since this unit is so inexpensive, I don't mind not having this feature!

    Just what I needed
    Was looking for a 1 in and 8 out selector and this one seems to hit right on. Have now hooked up seven speakers and they all work very well when combined with balanced volume controls. If I need another similar product, I will look at Monoprice first.
