About the Niles HPS-6
Building a multi-room audio system? The Niles HPS-6 lets you send music from a single amplifier or receiver to six pairs of speakers throughout your home, and gives you independent on/off control of each pair. Selectable impedance-magnifying circuitry prevents damage to your receiver or amp, even when you're driving all six pairs at once.Details:
- handles up to 250 watts per channel
- selectable impedance magnification safeguards your system
- requires an amplifier or receiver capable of driving a 4-ohm load
- accepts speaker wires up to 12 gauge or pin connectors
- includes room/speaker labels
- rugged all-metal chassis
- 17"W x 2-1/16"H x 8-5/8"D
- warranty: 10 years
More details on the Niles HPS-6
Construction: The chassis is component-sized (17" wide) and made from durable black metal with padded feet.
Speaker Switches: Each set of speaker outputs has an on/off switch so any combination of connected speakers can be played at any given time.
Protection Switch: The impedance protection switch on the front of the unit safeguards the receiver or amplifier even when all 6 pairs of speakers are playing.
Note: You will need to activate the "Protection" switch whenever the overall system impedance might fall below 4 ohms. It is recommended to verify that the receiver or amplifier is capable of driving a 4-ohm load.
Constant Protection: This speaker selector is equipped with a manual override for the protection circuit that enables you to defeat the front panel protection switch and maintain constant impedance protection. This will safeguard your amplifier from being overdriven due to accidental or improper use.
Removable Speaker Terminals: There are six removable speaker output terminal blocks and one removable speaker input terminal block. These connectors make it easier to wire the speakers to the selector. Each terminal block can accommodate up to 12 gauge wire.
Labels: Included are 72 pre printed and 6 blank label stickers for easy identification of the front panel controls.
- Frequency Response: 20Hz-20kHz +0dB, -0dB (flat)
- Power Handling: 250 watts per channel RMS at 8 ohms
