I have limited budget for audio and I wanted to run speakers to a porch, two sets to a patio and another set in my kitchen. I connected this device to the "B" speakers on my Yamaha reciever. I thought I'd give this thing a try, but I was pretty skeptical because I have a variety of speakers and they are at various distances from my reciever. The farthest pair is over 120 feet away and I put a volume control on the end. I was pretty sure that would not work, but it works very well. The sound is really good even though the signal travels through this thing and 120 feet of wire and a volume control. The next thing I was afraid of is that all the sound would disapear or the quality would drop dramatically when I turned on all the speakers, but when I turned them all on there was no noticable loss of power to any speaker.

I'm highly pleased with the utility of the monster speaker selector. Connections are easy, logical, and the sound does not appear degraded at all. Make sure you always have the protection button engaged. Without it, my amp shut down.

The SS6 is a good way to run speakers to other rooms and outdoors

For non-critical, multi-room, single zone audio, these get the job done and are priced right.

I installed two of these in a home where the previous owner took the amp and switches when they sold. The existing volume controls were non-impedance matching and I didn't perform any measurements, but two of these switches with 11 pairs of speakers enabled presented a manageable load to the 150wpc 2 channel amp allowing hours of continuous use without forcing the amp into thermal shut down.

I should also point out to others that these are impedance matching, not volume matching, they average out the electrical load placed on the amplifier. This is important because if you have different speakers with different sensitivities (dbl/wm), you will end up with different apparent audio levels in different rooms (I should have thought to explain that to this customer before hand).

This six pair speaker selector switch replaced a piece of junk I had unfortunately purchased from Radio Shack. The old switch had bleed-through to non-selected speakers, which sort of defeats the purpose.

The monster switch works as it should - sound only from selected speakers. It also looks nice, with an attractive black coated aluminum housing, and the switches seem to be of good quality. The connectors in the back are a little bit awkward if you don't plan to use the "gold plated pins" that monster would like to sell you, which I don't. Copper is a good enough conductor, thank you.

Simple to hook up and operate.
Does not seem to degrade sound quality at all.
Can run 6 sets of speakers simultaniously without degradation of sound quality or volume.
Can run 6 sets of speakers simultaniously without amplifier overheating.

This is the third unit that I have purchased (for 3 differnt houses) and they all have performed flawlessly.

The problem with my amp shutting down from my old speaker splitter due to impedance loss has been completely resolved with the Monster SS-6 multiple speaker selector. I am running up to 5 pair of speakers from my one amp. Of course, if the protection button on the SS-6 is turned off then the amp shuts down again. Leave the protection button turned on. This is a great product and the sound quality remains very good as well.

I've had this thing for quite a while now and it still works perfectly. Sound is good. Volume on each speaker decreases as you turn more speakers on, but how could it not (it's not an amp)? Bought it used too! Can't believe I didn't get this much sooner!

The Monster Cable SS-6 Speaker is a great product, at first I thought it would help me to connect my 3 additional speakers, but to my surprise it was able to connect 12 speakers! (6 sets of two/audio-area), this is something great for the price it costs.

I've used this to connect 6 sets of speakers with 14AWG stranded wire. The switching works as advertised, and the speakers all sound good with no volume issues to report. The all metal body construction and the switches feel very solid.

One thing to note: the holes in back for the speaker wire will only just fit 14AWG; any remotely wayward strands won't find their way into the hole. This is not an issue with the product, just something to think about if you're using wire that has been used before and has some frayed or tangled strands at the end.

This is a neat little box that was easy to set up and does the job. I have two issues: 1)The buttons which determine which speakers are on/off should be labeled with a number or a letter so they can be quickly identified and 2)the button you push in when multiple speakers are in use significantly reduces the speaker output which was not as advertised. I have 5 sets of speakers in my house and my system could only handle two. All in all, the box has totally solved my problem.
