12v Triggers and active speakers


Paul Alamo

Hopefully this post is in the right place

I have three active speakers (F, C, L) and my pre-amp has a 12v trigger but the speakers do not have a trigger. Is there any way I can control the mains power via the 12v triggers to switch on these speakers. I have seen RF remote plugs put how do I get a 12v trigger to set them on and off.

Any help is apreciated.

Hi Paul,

try this: http://www.quasarelectronics.com/3084.htm

I will soon have a Meridian G68 & G98 and will use the 12v triggers to activate my 240v screen.

Thanks to others here, I found that this unit is exactly what I / you need.

Hope that helps.

also gone for this, just what I need to turn on my extra amp for the back speakers. Quaser don't do the boxes for it , so any suggestions? Had a look at Maplins and couldn't see any. Thanks, John

arrived and fitted. Just the job. Went in a regular single wall-mountable box with a couple of small bolts. Found there was an extra connection to be made, but customer services were very helpful on the phone. Is this another little box for J.S. Technology or someone else to have ready made? Could be a great little power buy. Anway thanks again to these forums for another problem solved. Cheers, John
