Hello, I hope this is the right forum to post in. As always many seem to apply. I will keep my question as brief as possible.
I have just moved into a new home and four rooms are roughed in for two speakers each. I have bought four sets of speakers, and a Quest 4.1 QLS Loudspeaker Switcher
. I installed the speakers without issue, every room had two wire in wall rated speaker wire ready in ceiling so all good there.Question (or where I ran into trouble):
--- The wires running to where I need install the wall switch when I pulled the plate off were more complex that I expected. The dining room wall plate when removed had as expected the two, two wire cables from the speakers which I connected to the audio control output easily (Quest QVCII 75 Watts In Wall Impedance Matched Stereo volume Control
). However I didn't expect two four wire speaker wires to be in there as well. One of the two running to the basement (where all of the rooms four wire heads to for hook up) is simple enough, and I connected that to the receiver side of the wall volume control Quest module. But.... what do I do with the four wire that seems to be coming from upstairs and ends in this box as well? I may have expected to see a four wire from the upstairs bedroom that is a part of this set up running straight through to the basement, but in the wall box the four wire cable running from up inside the wall ends in this box, and a new one runs from the box into the basement (as mentioned before).
What do I do with the four wire running from above into the wall outlet space? (I currently pig-tailed it in to the one connected to the receiver side of the wall outlet but before powering it up... thought I had better ask).
EDIT:** Note that I checked all four wall outlet spots and only the dining room has this "extra" four wire, wire. All the others have three wires (two, two wire from the speaker, and one four wire going to the termination point in the basement panel - those are fine).
Thanks so much in advance for anyone willing to share their time. I will certainly pay it forward as I learn and grow in this great community.
