More details on the Niles VCS HUB8

Product Research


Overview: The VCS HUB8 is a speaker distribution hub that mounts in a structured wiring cabinet or on the wall. It connects between the speaker-level output of an amplifier or receiver and the Niles volume controls, allowing you to adjust the sound level of each pair of speakers.

Removable Screwless Speaker Connectors: Two piece, screwless speaker connectors make installation quick and secure. Each connector can accept up to 16-gauge wire. Larger (lower gauge) wire is not recommended, as it will not fit into the connectors. Solid-core, aluminum, or "Romex" wire is not recommended. 

Mounting: The VCS HUB8 is designed specifically to fit into a structured wiring cabinet, with snap-in "Christmas Tree" plugs supplied for convenient installation. The VCS HUB8 can also be mounted to the wall.

Can this replace an Episode 6 Speaker selector?

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The hub will connect between the speaker level output of the receiver or amp and connect to a Niles volume control. This Niles item would be a better choice: If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

8 pair so does this mean 16 speakers total?
[ Bones  Aug 14, 2015 ]
9 answers
Yes, 16 speakers total. I have mine running to 8 impedance matching volume controls, then out to the speakers. I use this device to consolidate the 8 pairs of home run wiring before going into the amp.
[ Richard  Aug 17, 2015 ]
Yes, 16 speakers total.
[ Tim  Aug 15, 2015 ]
Yes it does but you have to be careful because you can overload the output of your amp if you try to drive them all at too high a volume
[ THOMAS  Aug 15, 2015 ]
Yes if you look closely at the unit you will see that each of the 8 connectors accommodates 4 wires
[ Pamela  Aug 15, 2015 ]
The manual for this device says: "With the VCS HUB8, you can distribute the output from your amplifier or receiver to the volume controls for up to eight pairs of stereo speakers." That would be 16 speakers total.
[ Richard  Aug 14, 2015 ]
Yes, 16 speakers total.
[ CHRIS  Aug 14, 2015 ]
Yes, up to 16 total. I have each leg going to a volume controller which handles two speakers.
[ Roger  Aug 14, 2015 ]
Yes, each output is for a pair of speakers, so 16 would be the max.
[ Ralph  Aug 14, 2015 ]
Yes 8 pairs so a total of 16 speakers..
[ JAMES A  Aug 14, 2015 ]
Will this item work with an Onkyo receiver?
[ Bob  Mar 25, 2014 ]
1 answer
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Yes, that Niles VCS HUB8 would work with an Onkyo stereo receiver. It would require impedance matching volume controls for each set of speakers, though. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
