About the Pro-Wire AW-IMP100WV-B

Archer A.

Covenient volume control for your outdoor speakers

Pro-Wire's AW-IMP100WV is a hardy outdoor volume control that lets you set levels for your outdoor speakers without having to go inside and adjust it at the receiver. Its rugged, all-weather housing was built to withstand the elements. Its impedance-matching switch lets you install multiple volume controls and pairs of speakers in a custom-installed system and safely run them with a single amplifier. The 12-position rotary knob makes for smooth, even volume adjustments

Features

Outdoor Volume Control: The Pro-Wire AW-IMP100VW-B 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 outdoor location away from your receiver or amplifier. The OVC300 is weather-resistant and specifically designed for outdoor use. Its suitable for residential & commercial applications.

Impedance Matching: The Pro-Wire AW-IMP100VW-B outdoor in-wall volume control is impedance matching and can be configured to maintain a safe system load when multiple controls and speakers are connected in distributed audio setup. Its designed to compensate for the decreasing impedance associated with connecting multiple pairs of speakers to a single audio amplifier. The AW-IMP100VW-B does this by multiplying the impedance of the speakers to match their load to the amplifier. You can select 1x, 2x, 4x, or 8x using the switch behind the front cover. Here is how you can calculate which switch position to use -

  • Calculate the net impedance for all your speaker pairs (see the included installation instructions).
  • Second, determine the minimum safe operating impedance for your amplifier (check your amplifier's manual). .
  • Then divide the amplifier's minimum impedance by the net speaker impedance that you calculated. The result is the minimum necessary multiplier value that you will need to select on each volume control in the system.
  • The multiplier value you calculated will probably not be exactly 1, 2, 4, or 8 so you will need to round the value you calculated. Round up to the next highest multiplier unless you are within approximately 20% of a multiplier value.

Note: As an alternative to the calculation method, you can use the Impedance Multiplier Chart (included in the AW-IMP100VW-B's installation instructions) to determine the proper impedance switch setting.

100W Autoformer w/ 12-Step Rotary Knob: The AW-IMP100VW-B utilizes a 100W autoformer to efficiently transfer the power from your amplifier to speakers. A 12-step rotary knob provides a wide range of listening volumes and attenuation. The 12-step rotary knob offers a smooth transition between volume steps.

Detachable Euroblock Connectors: The Pro-Wire in-wall volume control is outfitted with two detachable 4-pin euroblock connectors. There is one 4-pin euroblock input and one 4-pin euroblock output. Both 4-pin euroblock connectors are detachable for simpler speaker wire termination. Make sure to use "CL" in-wall rated speaker wire.

  • Input: 4-pin euroblock input connector includes a Left Positive (L+), Left Negative (L-), Right Negative (R-), and Right Positive (R+).
  • Output: 4-pin euroblock output connector includes a Left Positive (L+), Left Negative (L-), Right Negative (R-), and Right Positive (R+).

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

Outdoor Housing Box: The Pro-Wire outdoor volume control mounts in the included weatherproof PVC enclosure which seals out moisture using the supplied rubber gasket.. It surface-mounts on a wall or mounts directly on a 3/4" PVC conduit (mounting screws and hardware not included). The outdoor housing box has a depth of 3.75".
