Speaker Switch FAQs

What are the differences between the speaker switches in terms of impedance? 

All QED speaker switches are configured so that if you users can use 8 Ω speakers, the minimum impedance seen by the amplifier will be 4 Ω

What are the benefits of series vs parallel switching?

Speaker switches that allow for more than two sets of speakers to be connected use a combination of parallel and series switching to achieve the minimum impedance of 4 Ω no matter what combination of speakers are switched on. For the two way switches, there is a choice between exclusively series or parallel versions. If you have 8 Ω speakers (and a 4 Ω min amp), you should always use the parallel switch. If you have 4 Ω speakers and a 4 Ω min amp you should always select the series switch.

All QED switches load on 4 Ω using 8 Ω speakers. What happens if my speakers are 6 Ω?

Firstly check your amp - if it can cope with a 3 Ω load or less (some can), then you will be alright. If you only have two pairs of speakers connected, then always use a two-way SERIES speaker switch.

How do the switches deal with power, e.g. if I have an amplifier with more than 150 watts? 

QED speaker switches use mains switches which are rated at 6A which means the max power they can handle is 288W given an 8 Ω load.
