Designed for whole-house audio systems or commercial/retail environments, the TSM8 is a powerful yet affordable dual source zone speaker selector that allows you to connect up to eight pairs of speakers (eight listening zones) and select the zones with front panel push-button controls. A passive device that connects to a high-current amplifier and is compatible with in-wall volume controls, the TSM8 speaker distribution system also includes dual source switching (A/B) so you can choose between two audio amplifiers as well as individual on/off switches for each zone.Distributes audio from an amplifier to up to eight pairs of speakersManually-activated power protection circuitry ensures amplifier stabilityProvides maximum power handling and ultra-high-quality signal transmissionAutoformer-based operates more efficiently than resistor -based selectorsIncludes front-panel A/B switch to drive speakers from either of two amps Play one pair, a combination of pairs, or all eight pairs simultaneouslyRemoveable, color-coded snap-in connectors for easy installationIncludes custom die-cut labels to identify each listening zoneCompatible with all high-current amplifiersHigh quality construction with two-year warranty
Equipped with Impedance ProtectionThis high-power speaker selector is equipped with a low-frequency protection circuit to reduce subsonic signals so you can drive multiple pairs of speakers without going below safe impedance ratings. Going below the impedance rating can overheat or even damage expensive equipment or cause the amplifier to automatically shut off. The TSM8 utilizes audio-grade impedance-matching autoformers to safely distribute maximum power throughout your system, and 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.
Ease of Use and InstallationAccepts up to 14-gauge speaker wire, the TSM8 includes removable 4-pole color coded snap-in amplifier and speaker connectors for ease of installation when terminating. Another feature popular with our customers are the included die-cut labels that can be attached to each button to identify each listening, for example kitchen, patio, etc.
