product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude
to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
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.

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.

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.
