Essential Info

The Niles Audio WVC100E Enclosed Weatherproof Volume Control with Selectable Impedance Magnification is a weatherproof stereo impedance-magnifying volume control that connect between the speaker-level output of an amplifier, speaker selector, or a Niles Audio VCS HUB8 distribution hub and your speakers. It is a freestanding volume control mounted in a PVC junction box for use in environmental where a wall-mounted volume control would be impractical. You can adjust the volume of remotely located speakers to which they are connected by attenuating the amplifier signal. To assure minimal dissipation of internal power with virtually no power wasted as heat, Niles Audio volume controls use autoformers instead of L-pads as the volume-controlling element.

The WVC100E is an impedance-magnifying (IM) volume control. Unlike other brands, it has additional autoformer windings that magnify the impedance of connected speakers, while allowing all 12 steps to adjust the volume of the sound. Switches on the PC board select these windings. With the volume control providing impedance protection for your amplifier, you can create systems with no additional impedance-matching devices between the volume control and the amplifier.

    Additional Features and Benefits
    • WVC 100: Designed for environmental wall-mount installation
    • WVC 100E: Enclosed in a freestanding PVC junction box, designed for installations where wall mounting would be impractical
    • Both models: A rubber gasket fits behind the faceplate during installation to seal out moisture
    • An impedance-magnifying switch on the front of the volume control sets the impedance of connected speakers. You can magnify the speakers' impedance by a factor of two, four, or eight.
    • Unlike other impedance-matching volume-control products, Niles Audio IM volume controls maintain a 12-position adjustment regardless of how much impedance magnification you use, with total attenuation >48dB
    • Pop-free switching between all steps
    • 100-percent tested, electronically and acoustically, for frequency response, distortion, and power handling
    • WVC 100: Mounting depth of only 2-9/16". Fits into standard 18-cubic-inch one-gang junction boxes
    • WVC 100E: Fits into PVC junction box (supplied)
    • Standard faceplate and knob included
    • Isolated left- and right-channel grounds ensure safety with any amplifier
    • May be used with 4-, 6-, or 8-ohm speaker systems
    • Ideal for home and commercial sound installations
    • UL-rated to comply with all local building codes
    • Installation requires only a screwdriver and wire stripper
    • Power handling: 100W/channel RMS
    • Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz ±1.5dB
    • WVC 100: Available colors: Bone and White
    • Ten Years parts and labor warranty
    Typical Mounting Locations
    • At poolside
    • Near a hot tub
