Will this wire setup affect my amp?


Standard Member

I have created a wire map to help me in laying out the speakers wire for my room. The ultimate aim is to be able to switch the speakers around by 90 degrees e.g. FL becomes SL.

The boxes in the middle will be DPDT switches but for this diagram i have only shown one wire coming out of the speakers and amp.

Can anyone tell me please if this could cause any damage to the amp? I havnt worked out how to split the cable between the amp and the switches yet but im guesing a junction box might do the trick.
Would his affect sound quality at all?


Many thanks,

it may affect sound quality, but you could be playing a dangerous game. I dont know if it will work, but you must turn off the amp before switching. Chances are you will forget and may blow up the amp.
