Re: How to make a hardware switch for stereo to surround speakers?
lol, that just reminded me that the amp for my 4.1 PC system automatically
activates dual stereo if the rear speaker input is unused. Unfortunately,
the I can't just install a cut-off switch in the rear channels input line
since the dual stereo trigger works by detecting the physical presence of
the plug, and not by the input of a signal. (I just tested that by
unplugging the rear channels line at the sound card, while leaving the amp
side of the line plugged in.)
So, if I don't make some kind of switch-box, the simplest solution would
be just plugging and unplugging the rear channels input line when
switching between media types, although that's a little inconvenient to
have to do all the time.
lol, all my wiring is run up the wall, stapled to the ceiling, an spread
out all over the place, but I don't really care how it looks as long as it
My amps only has one set of outputs for each speaker. I've never even
owned a system that has any more than one set of outputs per speaker.
