Compatibility: This Shielded 'Y' Adapter has multiple applications:

  • Splitting Audio Signals: This adapter allows you to feed a stereo signal to two audio components, or for connecting a 4-channel car amplifier with one stereo patch cord (requires two adapters--one for each channel).
  • Combining Audio Signals: You can use the adapter to combine a stereo signal into a mono signal (example: connecting a stereo VCR to a TV with a mono input).
  • Subwoofers: You can use this 'Y' adapter, along with a mono RCA cable, for connecting a subwoofer with stereo inputs to a receiver with a single subwoofer output.
  • Video Signals: Use this adapter to feed a composite video signal (from a VCR, for example) to 2 different monitors.
  • Mono VCRs: With this adapter, you can feed the mono audio output from a VCR to a TV or receiver with stereo inputs so that both left and right channels are supplied a signal.

Construction: The adapter features a single female RCA jack on one end and dual male RCA plugs on the other end, each with black molded connectors and flexible stress relief collars.
