About the OSD OVC100

There's an easy-to-access impedance switch you can adjust to ensure a safe load for your amplifier. 

Convenient volume control for your outdoor sound system

If you're enjoying a nice day listening to your favorite album while relaxing out on your patio, breaking up your R&R to go turn the music down is a major inconvenience.

There's an easy-to-access impedance switch you can adjust to ensure a safe load for your amplifier. 

This rugged outdoor volume control isn't picky about where you install it. It mounts to a wall or a standard 3/4" PVC conduit. It's also built to withstand almost anything Mother Nature throws its way (shy of Antarctica or Death Valley, maybe), so it'll work like a charm year-round. The quick-connect terminals on the back make inserting speaker wire straightforward and handle up to 14-gauge wire.

Features

Outdoor Volume Control: The OSD Audio OVC100 is an outdoor volume control that connects between the speaker-level output of your receiver, amplifier, or speaker selector and a pair of outdoor loudspeakers. The OVC100 provides control of speaker volume in a remote outoodor location away from your receiver or amplifier. The OVC100 is weather-resistant and specifcally designed for outdoor use.It can withstand temperatures of -50 to 130 Fahrenheit.

50W RMS/100W Peak: The OVC100 outdoor volume control can handle up to 50 Watts (RMS) / 100 Watts (Peak) per channel with a frequency response of 20-20kHz and minimal bass roll-off.

Impedance Matching: The OVC100 features built-in impedance matching, which enables more pairs of speakers to be connected to an amplifier than the amp could normally accommodate. You can magnify the speakers' impedance by a factor of two, four, or eight, allowing you to connect up to eight pair of speakers (16 total speakers) to a single amplifier or receiver. The impedance matching switch is hidden behind the outdoor volume control's front-panel and lets you set the impedance factor to 2x, 4x, or 8x. The volume control also has a non-impedance matching option (1x) to accommodate a single pair of speakers for optimum fidelity.

Note: To prevent from overloading and damaging your receiver or amplifier, the Impedance Matching switch must be set correctly to match the impedance of the speaker system to a level equal to or greater than the impedance of the amplifier.

12-Step Rotary Knob: The OSD Audio OVC100 outdoor volume control utilizes a 12-step linear rotary-style knob for a wide range of listening volumes and a total attenuation of -54 dB (Max). Its precision autoformer design features outstanding sound quality due to high permeability steel utilization in the volume control core.

Speaker Wire: The SLK100 in-wall volume control is outfitted with 5" attached speaker wire leads that can be connected to 16AWG or 14AWG speaker wire. Make sure to use "CL" in-wall rated speaker wire. The attached speaker wire is color-coded for easy indentification.

  • Input Left: Blue (positive), Blue/Black (negative)
  • Input Right: Red (positive), Red/Black (negative)
  • Output Left: White (positive), White/Black (negative)
  • Output Right: Green (positive), Green/Black (negative)

Note: Be sure not to reverse the amplifier or speaker connections, because damage to the amplifier could result.

Mounting Options: The OVC outdoor volume control mounts in the included weatherproof PVC enclosure (available in grey or white), which features a rubber gasket that seals out the moisture. It surface-mounts on a wall or mounts directly on a 3/4" PVC conduit (mounting screws and hardware not included). The outdoor volume control measures 3.625" (w) x 5.125" (h) x 4.125" (d).
