View Full Version : Speaker Selector Jimmy RIg

Can I take an Adcom speaker selector that takes one set of inputs and splits them out to 3 and use it "backwards"? I want to take 2 sources and be able to switch them between one set of speakers? I attached a picture of a similar one.
If so, I would have to be careful not to engage both sources at the same time, of course.

NO! There are separate units that can do what you are asking.

yeah dude, I agree with the rest. I wouldnt do it, it just aint worth the risk. you can mess things up at both ends that way I think

The Adcom GFS is an ohm compensating switch. I would NOT do it. And like you said an accidental switching on of both amps could be very very bad.
If you are handy with general electronics you could try to find a 4 pole double throw high current switch. That way there is no chance of damaging your amps except for improper wiring. What kinda power are you trying to route, and why?

I you like Dr Frankenstein, you could use 2 DPDT knife switches (1 on each speaker) :)

OK. You all have talked me out of it. I just want a way to do simple system A vs B comparison, with all else equal.
I can building something like you suggest that isolates the systems from each other. I was hoping to get by easy.
