I have what I believe not to be a unique situation.
I have three amplifiers, and a set of speakers.
I need each amplifier for something different (ones the big home one,
ones my personal one and ones because my personal one doesn't have any
aux in. Each has 8 ohm speaker connections.
I need to be able to connect each of them, with a seperate volume control,
to the speakers. My Intention was to use 3 Pots (the double ones) - one
connected to each amplifier and the two speakers connected to the outputs
of these. Will this work? And what Pots will I need?
Please - any help would be greatly appreciated
Re: Speaker Source Selection
It doesn't matter whether the inputs are balanced or not. You can still
use DI boxes.
The OP didn't say that the amps had tape outs either. Just that there
were 3 amps and 1 set of speakers. He wanted to connect each one with a
separate volume control to the 1 set of speakers.
I was thinking, rather than connect all the amps to the speakers, just
connect one, and provide an attenuator from the output of each amp to
bring it down to line level and feed it into line inputs on the main amp
(if they are available).
