Q
Can I use this to extend speaker wires? I want to hide my speaker wire but some of the speaker wires are too short to allow that. Rather than cutting and running new, longer wires from the receiver to the speakers, can I run the current wires to this unit and then run additional wire that is long enough to hide from this unit to the receiver. I don't want I noticeable drop in sound quality.
[ Warren  May 24, 2020 ]

This connecting block has as it's input one set of speaker wires, and as it's output up to eight sets of speaker wires. If all of your speakers are connected to the same channel on the receiver, then this should work. If the speakers are connected to more than one channel on the receiver, then you might look for another alternative.
[ Wayne  Jun 05, 2020 ]
A
I don't see why not. You would only use one output.
[ Dr G Steven  Jun 04, 2020 ]
A
Sorry I can't be much help as I'm yet to use. My office has nine speakers and I want to funnel them into this unit and pair them into a couple of channels of the receiver. I wouldn't think there is a noticeable drop in sound quality as this is a simple connection but can't promise that for sure. I'd give it a try! Good luck.
[ LARRY W  Jun 04, 2020 ]
A
Yes you can. I had a similar situation that I moved my amplifier further away so I installed the Russound block there and ran new speaker wires to the new location of my amplifier.
[ Kenny  Jun 04, 2020 ]
Q
I have 19 pair of spkrs to hook up. Can the EZB-8 blocks be connected together to allow more connections like the older EZB-1sc and EZB-2sc blocks?
[ David  Jan 13, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Yes the EZB-8 will give you the ability to add up to 8 speakers x's 2 (pairs) to each zone or channel of your sound system... One warning is to make sure that your "Input" connection wire from your amp is of a substantial gauge enough to disburse the discharge load to all your pairs of speakers. Remember each EZB card disburses only one channel to your speakers at a time.
[ THOMAS  Jan 14, 2017 ]
Q
Would this work in a 70V commercial system?
[ Jeff  Apr 24, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
Should work just fine in a 70 volt system. It is just a connecting block, no impedance matching. So if your wires are homer in then you could use this to connect them.
[ Robert  Apr 27, 2015 ]
A
It should, all it is is a connecting block that allows you to take one set of signals and split it for up to 8 speaker pairs. There are not any electronics involved that I am aware of.
[ Terry  Apr 26, 2015 ]
Q
Are the volume controls required or can the speakers be wired directly to the connecting block and just use the volume control on the amp?
[ MAT4Ret  Feb 03, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You should not use this without something to perform the impedance matching that those volume controls will do. If you didn't use them, then you run an extremely high risk of presenting an impedance to the amp that it cannot support. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
