12-Zone Dual 2x Source Speaker Selector with Amplifier Protection Circuitry and A/B Switching - TSM-12

Quick Overview

If you want a powerful speaker selector, the TSM-12 is a highly efficient dual source, impedance-matching speaker selector. It will handle more power and in cooler temperatures than the resister based speaker selectors. This high quality speaker selector is designed for use with either 4 or 8 ohm speakers.

Details

Ideal for larger whole-house audio systems or commercial/retail spaces, the TSM-12 allows you to connect up to 12 pairs of speakers (12 listening zones) and simplify control with just a push of a button. Equipped with flexible switching options, this powerful and highly efficient dual source speaker selector lets you choose which zones to play via a front panel push-button controls, and the dual source (A/B) switching feature lets you switch between two source amplifiers. Designed for use with either 4- or 8-ohm speakers, connect the TSM-12 to a high current amp and in wall volume controls to create a sophisticated but simplified whole house audio experience.

Equipped with Impedance Protection
To help protect expensive audio equipment, this high-power speaker selector includes low-frequency protection circuitry that reduces subsonic signals so you can safely drive multiple pairs of speakers without going below an amp’s impedance ratings. Going below the impedance rating can overheat or even damage expensive equipment or cause the amplifier to automatically shut off.

Highly efficient, audio-grade impedance-matching autoformers safely distribute maximum power throughout your system, while a rotary switch located on the rear panel can be used to set the appropriate impedance to be seen by your amplifier based on the number of pair of speakers connected.

Designed for Ease of Use
You don’t have to be a technical wizard to install the TSM-12. This speaker distribution system accepts up to 14-gauge speaker wire and includes removable and easily identifiable 4-pole snap-in amplifier and speaker connectors for ease of installation. To simplify control of multiple listening zones even further, we include die-cut labels that can be attached to each button to identify each listening zone, for example, dining room, kitchen, patio, etc.
