Dialing in the Volume
Volume controls add value to whole house audio systems because different rooms require different volumes, and the ability to dial it up or dial it down is technology simplified. Our indoor volume controls are designed to blend into any decor and include decora style faceplates and your choice of rotary dial knobs or slider volume control. Our outdoor volume controls are a bit more rugged with weather-resistant housing, rotary knobs, and surface or conduit mounting options. What they both have in common, however, is self-impedance matching circuitry that matches the impedance levels so you can run multiple sets of speakers on a single amplifier. For large commercial applications such as airports, hotels, and theme parks, 70v volume controls allow you to daisy chain the speaker wire and run as many as the job requires. Typically available in 100 and 300-watt power ratings, today’s volume controls are relatively easy to install into a single-gang box, but make sure that whatever speaker volume control box you choose includes clearly labeled speaker wire terminals for input and output to your speakers.
