    Default Speaker switch project

    After buying a couple of speaker switches which have ended up breaking and trying to find a well built, reasonably priced one with decent quality binding posts without success I have decided (after a recommendation on here) that having a go at building one myself might be the best solution.

    Other than adding new interconnects to my turntable I haven't done any soldering or circuit building since GCSE physics so am looking for some advice. I need the switch to allow me to play one or both sets of speakers at the same time. One set is 6ohm and the other is 8ohm. My first question is do I need to include resistors or is it simply a case of wiring up the binding posts to the switches?

    if anyone has made anything similar or can offer me any advice on my first DIY hifi project I would be very grateful.

    Thanks,

    Phil

    If the two pairs of speakers are of different impedance I would not recommend that you try to play both sets at the same time, from the same amp.

    Did you try my TC-7220 speaker/amp switch by any chance?
