switching between a/b speakers for kitchen/outside

michael_vOctober 24, 2009

Hi all,

I am installing speakers in kitchen and backyard, and am going to get a logitech squeezebox and small amp to play music off my computer.

Does anyone know of a small amp that I could buy that would include A/B speaker switch so I could play either kitchen or outside or both together? I've been looking at things like http://bit.ly/2Pua8Q but haven't found anything with inputs for 2 sets of speakers.

I do not need a lot of power, this will be more for background music. My stereo receiver has A/B switch (in another part of house) but I'd like something smaller for a kitchen cabinet.

thanks for any tips!

I did find this article talking about a $20 a/b switch box from radio shack (to play one area at a time), or it suggests getting a higher end dual zone receiver, but I'm hoping to find something in between.

I figured it out... here's what I bought to solve the problem:

Monster Cable SS4 Multi-Speaker Selector

Pyle Home PCA2 Mini 2 x 40-Watt Stereo Power Amplifier

Logitech Squeezebox Duet WiFi Internet Radio

Also here are the speakers I picked:

Polk Audio RC80i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair, White)

Polk Audio Atrium 45 All-Weather Speakers (Pair, Black)
