Niles Audio SSVC-4 Speaker Selector With Volume Control


The SSVC series is a combination speaker selector and volume controller. It allows you to connect multiple pairs of speakers to your stereo receiver or amplifier and adjust the volume of
any pair independently. Additionally, you can choose to listen to any pair of speakers, or any combination of pairs simultaneously. You don’t have to worry about overloading your amplifier. The SSVC series uses impedance magnification to keep your amplifier running safely, even with all speakers playing.

A perfect application for the SSVC series is individually controlling speaker “on/off” and volume adjustment for multiple pairs of speakers: one pair in the room with the main stereo system and all other pairs at remote locations. The SSVC series adjusts the volume of the speakers connected to it by attenuating the amplifier signal. Niles volume controls use autoformers instead of L-pads for the volume controlling element. This assures minimal internal power dissipation with virtually no power wasted as heat.

  • Power Handling:  100 watts per channel RMS at 8 ohms; 200 watts peak
  • Frequency Response:  20-20kHz +/-1.2 dB
  • Selectable Impedance Magnification Switch:  offers settings for up to four pair of speakers so the impedance load presented to the amplifier remains constant
  • Speaker Switches:  Each set of speaker outputs has an on/off switch so any combination of connected speakers can be played at any given time
  • Volume Controls:  Uses autoformers instead of L-pads to minimize power loss and heat production. Each volume control uses a 12 position rotary knob with “pop-free” switching and 54dB total attenuation
  • Protection Circuitry:  Separate left and right ground paths for compatibility with all amplifiers
  • Removable Speaker Terminals:  Four removable speaker output terminal blocks and one removable speaker input terminal block making it easier to wire the SSVC-4 into your system, and the blocks accept 12 to 22 gauge speaker wire
  • Construction:  Rugged black metal chassis with padded non-skid feet that won’t scratch furniture and ensure unit stability during operation
  • 72 adhesive-backed labels included for easy identification of the front panel controls
  • Overall Dimensions (W x H x D):  17″ x 2″ x 9 1/8″
  • Weight:  3 lbs
  • Warranty:  10 year limited warranty
