Lifetime Tech Support

The ISS4 High Power Speaker Selector is an easy and effective way to distribute music to up to four listening zones (four pairs of speakers) and play any pair, a combination of pairs, or all pairs simultaneously. Easy to connect with a low-profile design that easily fits into a cabinet or equipment rack.n choose. Front-panel push buttons let you quickly turn each pair of speakers on or off independently, and die cut labels fit within the recessed area on the buttons for easy labeling of each zone. A passive device that does not require power to operate, the ISS4 also includes impedance-matching circuitry so you can safely drive all four pairs at once without damaging your receiver or amp. Designed with quality in mind, the ISS4 is constructed of 16-gauge steel with a durable black powder coating and gray silk-screening. 

Features
  • Distributes audio from a receiver or amp to multiple pairs of speakers
  • Send one signal to up to four pairs of speakers in different listening zones
  • Impedance protection allows a single amplifier to safely power multiple speakers
  • Removable input/output connectors allow easy cable termination
  • Includes on/off switches for each zone
  • Low profile with beautiful black brushed aluminum finish
  • Works with any amplifier 
  • Includes a two-year warranty
Upgraded Input/Output Connectors
The ISS4 is easy to install (even for non-technical types) and accepts up to 14-gauge cable. The European-style input/output connectors are removable, which gives you better leverage when terminating cable than traditional spring-loaded terminals. This speaker selector takes either four or two conductor speaker wire stripped at the ends that are inserted into the screw-down input/output terminals for a tight fit to ensure the best signal transmission and sound quality possible. 

Protecting Valuable Audio Equipment with Impedance Protection 
When connecting multiple speakers to a receiver or amplifier, you need to stay above the amp's minimum load requirements. Going below the impedance rating can overheat or even damage expensive equipment. The ISS4 includes selectable impedance matching protection circuitry that allows a single amplifier to safely power several pairs of speakers. The speaker selector handles 140 watts per channel total input power without the manual protection engaged and 70 watts per channel with the protection engaged.

Alex • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM When do I need to use impedance protection? I have 2 pairs of speakers hooked up and only plan on ever using 1 pair at a time, never both pairs at the same time. Do I need to enable the impedance protection even when I am only using one pair?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Alex, That really depends on the type of amp/receiver you are using in line with it. If it's an 8ohm - 4ohm amp then you shouldn't have any trouble running it with the impedance protection disabled. The idea is that with two pairs of 8ohm speakers on the same load, the amp is going to see a 4ohm load. If your amp/receiver can only handle 8ohms and not 4ohms, then it may not be safe. Let us know what amp or receiver you will be using. Thanks! BM 2623
Harold • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I'm a little cofused exactly how spliters work and effect the amp. Can you please help me? If I have a 300 watt per channel amp and hook it to a 4 speaker spliter how does it effect the power? Would the amps power be distributed equally across all zones or would it be divided up amongst the 4 zones. You need to make sure the speaker selector can handle that much power. 300wpc is a lot of wattage!

Hi Harold, The amp would still send out 300wpc into the selector and the selector would divide the power equally amongst the zones

This specific model is simply a hardwired switch which parallels speakers as you activate them. As long as the current handling capacity of the switches is not exceeded, it is completely transparent to your amp. Assuming your amp can drive the combined load, the power sharing will depend on each speaker's actual impedance. Perfectly matched speakers will share the delivered power equally. If you use identical speakers on all ports, you will be close enough to equal power sharing. If you mix speaker types, especially if impedances vary (e.g. 4Ohms and 8Ohms types), power sharing will be skewed. Wont bore you with the mathematical details but search the web and you will easily find out why.
igourl • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Can I play multiple zones at once?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Igourl, Yes - but just make sure you have an amp that can handle the load that this receiver will have. If you are intending to run this ISS4 with a standard 8ohm receiver, you may run into some issues.
George • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Thinking about buying the OSD-ISS4 speaker selector. I'm currently using an Onkyo receiver model HT-RC460. I have 2 pair of speakers. OSD AP650 and Klipsch AW-400. Would I have to engage the speaker protection to use both sets at the same time? I normally use one set at a time but you never know.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi George, If you only have one zone active at a time, you should be okay with the impedance off, but it's hard to say since I'm not familiar with your receiver. I will say that typically receivers aren't intended to run more than a pair of 8ohm speakers, so it could be risky if you run both sets at the same time.
