Fave Speaker A-B Switch?

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends!

I have a pair of La Scalas and I have a pair of JBL water resistant outdoor speakers I'd like to be able to select between. Any fave A/B Speaker switch folks here use?

Niles Audio DPS-1.  I have been using 2 of these for 15 years with no issues.

I used an Adcom for a while until I downsized a bit. Built very well and the connectors are turn and lock....really easy. IIRC, @Rivernuggets bought it from me.

Thanks! I just ordered a good condition used Adcom GFS-3 speaker selector switch off Ebay, $25+ shipping!

Don't know what you're using for an amplifier, but for example some of the NAD stuff anyway inverts one channel so the draw on the supply rails goes opposite directions and the output of the inverted channel is reverted at the speaker connectors.  Thus, the "grounds" are not common (one is actually the "hot" electrically) and a speaker switch box that uses a common ground throughout will not work on such equipment, not at all.  (Well, it might, if care was taken, I suppose...)

I have a McIntosh MC2105 Solid State power amp, 105wpc but my La Scalas do not need 105wpc as they are SO efficient.
