About the Russound SS-4.2
You want tunes playing on the patio, in the living room and kitchen, but not in the bedroom where the kids are trying to sleep. Now you can have your music right where you want it. The Russound SS-4.2 gives you flexible speaker-switching options for multi-room applications. It allows you to connect as many as four pairs of speakers and play them all simultaneously without damaging your equipment. Create a whole-house system so you can listen to music in every room. Impedance-matching protection circuitry ensures that your amplifier or receiver operates at a safe load.

More details on the Russound SS-4.2
Overview: The Russound SS-4.2 Speaker Selector allows you to switch up to four speaker pairs connected to a stereo amplifier. Each pair of speakers can be turned on or off through individual front panel switches. It provides switchable built-in impedance matching, or can be used with impedance matching volume control. The SS-4.2 is designed for use with 8-ohm loudspeakers.
Impedance Matching Protection: When used with multiple speaker pairs, the impedance matching circuitry lets you operate the system safely with automatic overload protection. When connecting more than one pair of 8 ohm speakers to the speaker selector, the rear panel impedance switch should be placed in the "In" position. If using impedance matching volume controls (such as ALTx-2 or LPTx-2), the switch should be in the "Bypass" position.
Amplifier Requirements: When using internal impedance matching (switch set to "In") a 4-ohm stable amplifier is required. When using external impedance matching volume controls (switch set to "Bypass"), a 4 to 8 ohm stable amplifier may be used. You should use only the Amplifier "A" speaker outputs when the SS-4.2 is used. "B" speaker outputs should not be used.
Connections: The SS-4.2 features spring clip speaker terminals that can accommodate up to 12-gauge wire. For most applications, stranded 16-gauge speaker wire is recommended. For runs of over 100 feet, 14-gauge is recommended, while 12-gauge can be used for runs of up to 200 feet.
Performance: The speaker selector is designed for use with amplifiers with a power output of up to 100 watts per channel RMS (200 watts per channel peak. The frequency response is 20Hz to 20kHz (+/- 0dB).
Room Labels: The SS-4.2 comes with a sheet of non-adhesive room labels which slide into a groove in the front panel. A total of 52 labels and 8 blanks are included.
