  • More Info

    The Passive Local Source Interrupt enables an amplified local audio source to override your Essentia or Concerto System and play through the local zone in-wall speakers. The most common scenario for this is a television that would benefit from higher-quality speakers.

    A two-conductor wire from a relay on the Passive Local Source Interrupt plugs into the back of the zone keypad. When the zone's display pad is turned off, the local source is routed to the zone speakers.

    The Local Source Interrupt is a passive, non-amplified device. The signal sent to it must be amplified.
