Features

Overview: The Niles Audio ABA-1D is a push-button switcher that allows you to select between two different amplifiers or receivers to play through a single pair of speakers. You can also configure it to allow you to select between two pairs of speakers from a single amplifier or receiver. The switcher is designed to be wall-mounted in a 1-gang P-Ring or J-Box at least 2-1/2" deep.

Operation: The switcher has a spring-loaded, 2-position push-button. Press once and the button locks in the "in" position. Press again and the button pops out to the "out" position.

Contacts: The switcher has self-cleaning, silver-plated contacts, ensuring many years of trouble-free operation. They are 100% electrical and acoustical tested for frequency response, distortion, and power handling.

Power Handling: The ABA-1D can handle up to 350 watts per channel.

Connectors: The ABA-1D has three pairs of speaker connectors labeled "A", "Common", and "B". The connectors can accommodate up to 14-gauge wire. The connectors are tightened with a standard 1/8" slotted screwdriver.

Q
Can this switch be used iwith a 70 volt speaker system? I need to select between two 70 volt amp sources for one 70 volt speaker.

A
I know it can handle 350 watts per channel not I don't believe it is rated for a volt application but if you mean your speakers are 70 Watts it can more than handle it Enter
[ Gerald  Apr 21, 2017 ]
Q
Is this a standard size opening? I wanted to put this in a low-voltage / high-voltage 2 gang box and wanted to use a standard two opening faceplate.

I think it is. You could probably find something on line that would work, depending what is in the other half of the box. I have put a dimming light switch, with a center that same size, in a 4 gang box , with 3 other regular light switches and found a cover for that.
[ Chris  Jun 03, 2016 ]
A
Yes.
[ Rsvlrog  Jun 02, 2016 ]
A
Yes it's a decor plate which is the newer style switch plate. You need a duplex plate for the 2 gang depending what second item is. Make sure you don't combine 110 with low voltage in one box without the separator in middle. Any electrical supply should know what you need?? Good luck
[ LOUIS  Jun 01, 2016 ]
A
Yes.
[ Kevin  Jun 01, 2016 ]
Q
Can this switch be used with an impedance matching volume control as one of the sources that is installed in the same 2-gang box as the selector?
[ James  Dec 05, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
I can't see any reason that would not work. Mine receives volume controlled directly from my receiver and works great.
[ Greg  Dec 07, 2015 ]
A
I would think so. All this is, is a switching relay. Normally open or closed contacts.
