Simple way to get sound to another room
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
When my house was built I pre-wired for speakers in the living room, but did not consider speakers in the back porch. I installed speakers in the back porch last year and tried a couple wireless options to get sound outside with poor results. I also tried to pull wire all the way back to my receiver, but because of concrete construction was only able to get to the living room's speaker posts on the wall. This unit was a simple, straight forward way to connect to those speaker posts and get a line level signal. Once I had this I hooked up a simple small T-Amp and now I can drive the speakers in the back porch. This solution is working much better than either of the wireless solutions I tried; no extra load on the receiver, no delay between the rooms, sufficient power from the T-Amp and the ability to turn off the T-Amp when no one is outside. If you have a need for something like this, highly recommended.
Pros: Does exactly what it says
Cons: I wish it were enclosed. A little pricey compared to other options, but those are for car audio purposes and this one is from a home audio manufacturer, so it just works.
