Stereo to mono

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am installing speakers outside and want mono to give better sound coverage. To accomplish this would the following work?

Audio source L/R output to RCA splitter (2 female to 1 male) then another RCA splitter (1 female to 2 males) then plug that into the L/R on my amp.

This would give the left and right channels on my amp the same mono input allowing for mono speakers without having to worry about speaker impedance. Does this make sense?!?

You don't want to combine them directly. What you are looking for is a mixer... a very simple one. This can be accomplished with a couple of resistors and that splitter cable and a little research, or you can buy a cheap two channel mixer from wherever... check ratshack, zzsounds, etc.

I found this device http://www.edcorusa.com/p/5/s2m that will take the stereo to mono and then I can use a Y-connector to take the mono to the left and right channels.

Yep, a little mixer like that will work fine. Don't know if that's the cheapest premade option or not but it certainly isn't too expensive

You would be best to go with a 70volt system for the outdoor speakers.
