Looking for a simple way to raise or lower the volume of your custom-installed audio system? This in-wall control from On-Q can help. Install one in rooms with in-wall or in-ceiling stereo speakers for quick and intuitive volume adjustments. 

Easily change your system's volume

Looking for a simple way to raise or lower the volume of your custom-installed audio system? This in-wall control from On-Q can help. Install one in rooms with in-wall or in-ceiling stereo speakers for quick and intuitive volume adjustments. 

Installation details

Wiring this On-Q volume control is pretty straightforward: Connect your amplifier's left and right speaker outputs to the inputs on the back of the unit using in-wall rated speaker wire. Then run separate lengths of in-wall wire from the volume control out to your speakers.

Wire multiple controls to the same amp channels

This volume control offers adjustable impedance magnification — a handy feature that enables a single amplifier to drive multiple pairs of speakers without dropping impedance to levels that could potentially damage your amp. 

Wiring several volume controls to the same amplifier channels? Consider using Russound's EZB-8 connecting block to make plugging in multiple sets of wires more manageable.

Features

In-Wall Volume Control: The On-Q/Legrand In-Wall Volume Control (AU0100-WHLA-F1), is meant to be used in a multiple speaker distributed sound system. This in-wall volume control enables more pairs of speakers to be connected to an amplifier than the amplifier could normally accommodate (due to impedance matching ability). The volume control also has a non-impedance matching (1x) option to accommodate a single pair of speakers. When used in this fashion optimum fidelity will be achieved with a single pair of speakers.

  • Audio Power Handling: 100 watts (RMS) per channel
  • Impedance: compatible with 4-, 6-, and 8-ohm speaker systems

Selectable Impedance Magnifying Circuit: A universal impedance magnifying circuit enables the AU0100-WHLA-F1 to act as both stereo and an impedance magnifying volume control. You can magnify the speakers' impedance by a factor of two, four, or eight, allowing you to connect up to eight pair of speakers to a single amplifier or receiver. A jumper plug on the circuit board of the volume control lets you set the impedance factor to 1x, 2x, 4x, or 8x (this will need to be done prior to final installation).

Detachable Speaker Wire Connectors: The On-Q/Legrand In-Wall Volume Control (AU0100-WHLA-F1) has two detachable phoenix-style connector blocks that disconnect for easy wiring. The connector blocks can accommodate 18 AWG to 14 AWG speaker wire. Use 18 AWG speaker wire for less than 10' runs, 16 AWG speaker wire for 10'-50' runs, and 14 AWG speaker wire for runs over 50'.

Mounting Options: The On-Q/Legrand In-Wall Volume Control installs in a single gang electrical box (not included and sold separately). It comes with white and almond colored volume knobs, inserts, and cover plates.

  • Overall Dimensions: 2.75" (w) x 4.5" (h) x 3.75" (d)
  • Volume Control Dimensions: 1.6875" (w) x 4.0625" (h) x 1.9375" (d)
  • Cover Plate/Knob Dimensions: 2.75" (w) x 4.5" (h) x 0.9375" (d)

Note: Designed for indoor use only (do not use outdoors).

Q
Can I replace an Elan VSO1248 with this? I just want to switch from ivory color on the Elan to white.
jamie  Jan 28, 2023
1 answer
A
We can't guarantee compatibility due to the complexity and unique layout of in-wall speaker systems, Jamie. What I can say is that the On-Q AUO100-WHLA-F1 In-wall volume control with impedance magnification does share the same 1/2X, 4X, and 8X magnification features as the Elan VSO1248 and is an attractive choice. Make sure you have your impedance settings exactly replicated on your replacement switch for proper function or damage to your equipment may result. We do provide lifetime Technical Support on every order, so we can always help you get connected with your new gear!

Q
I have an old 75 watts switch. Will this 100W switch matter?
marty r  Jan 19, 2023
1 answer
A
Potentially, Marty. The extra wattage should be a non-issue, unless your switch failed due to overpowering with an amp that exceeds the 100-watt mark. Since the On-Q AU0100-WHLA-F1 in-wall switch also has an impedance magnification feature it would be very important to make sure you selected the correct impedance for your setup. We can always help with our lifetime Technical Support with every order!

Q
Stupid question, but is the lowest volume completely off?
jacob  Nov 21, 2022

A
Yes the knob turned fully counter clockwise is the volume completely off.

Q
Can this be used to replace Sonance VC60S?
ryan  Jul 16, 2022
1 answer
A
If you are using a pair of 8 ohm speakers with your Sonance VC60S, you can use this to replace it Ryan. This On-Q AU0100-WHLA-F1 does have impedance magnification capabilities, but if you select it's 1x setting it can be a direct replacement for the VC60S, of course with a rotary knob in place of the up down slider.
