    Default Whole House Rig - Back End Revamped

    Three Audiosource AMP100's, one for each of the 3 main zones, the 'B' side on the 3rd amp runs the patio. Audiosource Pre One/A, Yamaha CDC-555 cdp, Quadraflex Reference 620T Table.

    Mix of cables, MIT, Signal, and AR.

    Total rig cost: Just under $400.

    On that note, if anyone wants the Sima 4 (pair) speaker selector, with protection circuitry for $20, say the word. I'm now switchbox-less in the whole house rig.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    That looks fantastic, simple and effective. I love the whole house idea :D We should have had Bruce hook up his Sunfire to those outlets and rocked the whole neighbrohood!

    I know, we never even turned the some-bitch on, did we?

    Living Room - Infinity RSIIIb
    Master Bedroom - Polk RT7
    Patio - Disposable Jensen Cheapies

    It's also REAL nice to have an independent volume control for each zone (level ctrl on each amp), to match efficiency, or just turn it down in one area.

    Russ,
    you could install volume controls in each room. My Dad and I did this with his old Klipsch mains because they played so much louder than the inwalls instaled all over the house. Worked quite well.

    Yeah, I thought about that when I ran the wire, but decided against it. 2 reasons, it was one more 'jump' in the speaker wire, and second - expense.

    It's never been much of an issue, most every speaker I've owned and own are between 89-92 db. I understand what your saying, if I had Khorns at 104db, and DQ10's at 86 db, well, needless to say one room would be MUCH louder than the other.

    Great news now, is I do have vol control for each zone, but the speaker cables don't have that extra 'jump' in them, due to the level controls on each amp.

    I'm not impressed with in wall volume controls anyways. I've got Niles in walls and when you turn the volume down it really distorts the sound. I just grab my remote and turn the volume on the receiver down.
