  • Drive up to 8 pairs of speakers with one amplifier

  • 100W RMS output, 60W RMS input load protection

Essential Info

If you're planning on buying expensive new audio equipment to operate a whole-house audio system, stop! With an 8-Speaker Distribution Panel, you'll be able to achieve whole-house audio using your existing stereo system -- for just a fraction of what it would cost to purchase new equipment. Just wire the Distribution Panel into your receiver's left and right speaker outputs, and the unit will expand the speaker capacity of your receiver or amplifier to handle up to eight pairs of speakers! The system provides a convenient termination point, or home run box, that allows you to easily and neatly organize a central speaker wire distribution point.


What's Included

  • 8-Speaker Distribution Panel
  • More Info

    The Distribution Panel features push-to-connect terminals that accept 22- to 8-gauge wire and built-in switchable impedance protection that can be switched in or out. The unit handles up to 100 watts of audio power with impedance protection switched out, and 60 watts of audio power with impedance protection switched in. What this means is that with impedance matching volume controls you can push up to 100 watts, otherwise you will be limited to 60 watts. Left and right channels are completely isolated, allowing for safe operation with any type amplifier.

    If you are pushing more than 60 watts total (100 Watts if you have impedance matching volume controls), consider using the Impedance Protected Speaker Connection Hub; for power handling up to 300 Watts.

    RICK -- sierra vista, AZ   12/8/2011
    2nd purchase of an excellent product. I use these to correct the mistakes made when multiple speakers are installed. The only bad thing? I'll never see it again once it's installed. Rick in Sierra Vista, AZ
    DOUGLAS -- bellville, TX   10/2/2010
    Easy to install and connect. I am using seven of the eight stereo connections. Nicely ballanced sound throughout the house... with volumne controls.
    THOMAS -- woodland hills, CA   8/15/2007
    it works fine. an on/off or by-pass switch for the individual speaker connectors would have been invaluable.
    MIKE -- ham lake, MN   7/13/2007
    It was a lot bigger than I was expecting, but I'm very happy with it. I installed it as soon as I got home and it works great.
    KENNETH -- kingston, OK   4/12/2007
    quite satisfied
    RICHARD -- miami, FL   3/11/2007
    Easy to setup, does what it's supposed to do. I thought it was a powered unit though.
    JAMES -- broomall, PA   1/8/2007
    worked as advertised, a place to do room labeling would be the only improvement that I can think of
    JOHN -- pleasant hill, CA   12/29/2006
    The item was well designed and performed as advertised. Installation was easy. I would buy products from your company again.
    GEORGE -- ferndale, MI   11/10/2006
    Looks great and easy to wire.
    STEPHEN -- benicia, CA   8/18/2006
    Excellent item that I've only found at SmartHome.
    BRIAN -- rancho santa fe, CA   8/10/2006
    Very, very fast delivery!! Thank you...
    PATRICK -- missouri valley, IA   8/2/2006
    Works great, just as I expected it to. Before installation, I was frequently surging out my amplifier. Now I can really power my in wall speakers nicely.
    WILLIAM -- norwalk, OH   3/2/2006
    Great Item; this is my second one and they work perfectly.
    DANIEL -- edmond, OK   2/25/2006
    Product worked perfectly for taking sound from my living room receiver and distributing it to all the speakers around the house, saving me a ton of money that would have gone to a more expensive solution.
    JOSEPH -- somerville, MA   2/21/2006
    can not beat this for the price. Saved me a ton of money instead of buying a very exspensive whole house audio system.
    KEITH -- issaquah, WA   2/20/2006
    The item arrived very quickly and was exactly as described on the website. Very satisfied with the purchase.
    GUSTAVO -- coconut creek, FL   2/3/2006
