    I am thinking about building a Speaker Switch but I want to get creative, and not use a toggle switch, or a 4PDT relay.

    Can it be done with electronic components, to select one of the two pairs of speakers at a time?

    I need to be able to pass the audio signal to the different speakers, over some kind of electronic switch.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    How much power does the switch have to handle?

    One of the amps is 400 watts per channel.
    So, it could be a significant amount of current.

    I forgot to mention that earlier.

    Easier to use relays. Check out Potter & Brumfield T92's.

    Thanks for that relay suggestion. I need 4PDT.
    I found a potter and Brumfield P30 - 4PDT 24 volt DC coil.
    Now I just have to find a place to sell me one.
