The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance. WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE. THE APPARATUS SHALL NOT BE EXPOSED TO DRIPPING OR SPLASHING. NO OBJECTS FILLED WITH LIQUIDS, SUCH AS VASES, SHALL BE PLACED ON THE APPARATUS. SS4VC/SS6VC INTRODUCTION USING THE PROTECTION SWITCH Thank you for purchasing the Sonance Speaker Selector System. You have purchased one of the highest performance speaker switching devices available, carefully designed to give you years of trouble-free operation. Connection to your system is very simple. Please invest a few minutes to read the complete instructions, before beginning your wiring to assure the highest quality sound from your system. As a general rule, the more speaker pairs you have on, the more the protection circuitry will be needed. Leaving the Protection switch always engaged (“on” position) will provide the safest operating condition for your receiver or amplifier. For most receivers or amplifiers, the Protection switch should be engaged when more than one Speaker button is engaged on the SS4VC and SS6VC switchers. Failure to engage the Protection switch when multiple pairs of speakers are engaged may cause damage to your receiver or amplifier. The protection switch is located on the back of the SS4VC and SS6VC switchers. Slide the red switch towards the left to engage the 3Ω protection resistors. Slide the red switch towards the right to disengage the resistors and turn off the protection circuit. NOTE: When protection circuitry is engaged, there may be a slight, but perceivable loss of volume in the speakers that are engaged. This is simply the trade-off for using resistive protection instead of individual amp channels for each speaker pair or an impedance matching device such as the Sonance AF8. Use dedicated amplifiers if you require more dynamic range. UNPACKING Save your carton and the styrofoam inserts for future safe transport in case you move or the unit ever requires shipping for repair. Before you proceed, find the serial number which is located on the rear panel of the unit and note it here for future reference. Serial # ________________________________________ SS4VC/SS6VC BASIC CONCEPT The SS4VC and SS6VC are designed to connect four and six pairs of loudspeakers, respectively, to one receiver or amplifier. Each pair of speakers can be independently turned on/off. The volume control knobs give you independent volume control in all speaker locations. These systems provide impedance protection whenever its protection circuit is manually engaged by the user. When engaged, the SS4VC and SS6VC adjust the impedance load presented to the receiver or amplifier. With most amplifiers, when multiple speakers are engaged, the protection switch should be engaged. With high amplifier volume, your SS4VC and SS6VC switcher may become warm. Do not operate your system below the impedance rating of the receiver, amplifier, or the switcher. Check the owner’s manual of your receiver or amplifier. Do not exceed the 75Watt RMS rating of the SS4VC/SS6VC. CUSTOM BUTTON LABELS Sonance makes multi-room sound distribution even more userfriendly by including Custom Button Labels (Sonance PN. 33-1468). You can customize your SS4VC or SS6VC with a label for each button that corresponds with the room or area in which you have a pair of speakers playing. One sheet of button labels contains 120 pressuresensitive labels, each with a 3 to 7-letter abbreviation for nearly every room or area likely to be encountered in your installation. Each label fits the dimensions of the indentations under the buttons on your SS4VC and SS6VC. A legend of the rooms or areas is included in the package for easy reference. Consult your Authorized Sonance Dealer for more information. Note: With the SS6VC (not shown), you can add up to 2 more rooms. PLACEMENT B. Speaker Connection: Because the SS4VC and SS6VC both contain resistors which consume power and dissipate current in the form of heat, the unit should be placed in a location that won’t heat other source equipment and where there is good ventilation. If placing it in an enclosed cabinet or between shelving, make sure there is adequate space (at least two inches) on all sides and between the top of the switcher and any shelving, cabinetry, or components placed above it. A fan may be needed to draw air through the cabinet or shelving unit if components get too warm. We recommend that you do not place the unit on top of your receiver or amplifier. 1. With appropriate speaker wire, connect the first pair of speakers to the left SPEAKER 1 connections on the back of the SS4VC/SS6VC. Make sure the speaker positive (+) is connected to the SS4VC/SS6VC positive (+), the speaker negative (-) to the SS4VC/SS6VC negative (-). Since your SS4VC and SS6VC will be used as a central switcher for multiple speaker pairs, it should be easily accessible. When placing it with other electronics, the SS4VC and SS6VC should be placed in a location that will accommodate the mass of speaker wires that will be connected between it, the speakers, and receiver or amplifier. Operation of the SPEAKER Buttons: WIRING IMPORTANT: Always use high grade speaker wire such as Sonance MediaLinQ™.We recommend 18 GA wire for runs of 50 feet or less, 16 GA for runs of 50-100 feet, or 14 GA for runs over 100 feet. A. Source Connection: 1. Connect the left speaker output of the receiver or amplifier to the left INPUT connector of the SS4VC/SS6VC (see diagram above). Make sure that the positive (+) terminal of the receiver or amplifier connects to the positive (+) terminal of the input connector of the SS4VC/SS6VC. The negative (-) connection should be connected to the negative (-) terminal of the input connector of the SS4VC/SS6VC. 2. Repeat step 1 for the right side, connecting the right speaker output of the receiver or amplifier to the right INPUT connector of the SS4VC/SS6VC (see diagram above). 2. Repeat step 1 for the remaining speaker pairs. FRONT PANEL OPERATION To engage any pair of speakers, push in the button which corresponds to the pair of speakers you want to turn on. The “in” position means the speakers are on.Any combination of the speaker pairs may be played at once. To disengage any pair of speakers, push in the button which corresponds to the pair of speakers you want to turn off. The “out” position means the speakers are off. Note: A slight decrease in volume may occur when additional speakers are engaged.
