About the OSD OVC300

Convenient outdoor volume control

Breaking away from an outdoor gathering to go turn your music down inside can be an annoying interruption. That's where OSD's OVC300 comes in. It handles up to eight pairs of speakers and up to 300 watts of power. There's an easy-to-access impedance switch you can adjust to to ensure a safe load for your amplifier.

Breaking away from an outdoor gathering to go turn your music down inside can be an annoying interruption. That's where OSD's OVC300 comes in. It handles up to eight pairs of speakers and up to 300 watts of power. There's an easy-to-access impedance switch you can adjust to 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 OVC300 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 OVC300 provides control of speaker volume in a remote outoodor location away from your receiver or amplifier. The OVC300 is weather-resistant and specifcally designed for outdoor use.It can withstand temperatures of -50 to 130 Fahrenheit.

150W RMS/300W Peak: The OVC300 outdoor volume control can handle up to 150 Watts (RMS) / 300 Watts (Peak) per channel with a frequency response of 20-20kHz and minimal bass roll-off.

Impedance Matching: The OVC300 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 removable 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 OVC300 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).
