Audio selector switch?
Many years ago for my home stereo setup, I had a 4 in 1 out Audio switch from Radio Shack. Is there such a thing for the mobile world? I have my head unit in my RV but it only has 1 audio input. I need to select between my PC, XM Radio and a Ham radio. If a reasonably low cost head unit exists with 3 inputs, I would be interested in that too.
Below is what my RV-PC setup now looks like. I still need to make a plate for the switches and LED's.
the same switch that radio shack sells would work.
otherwise, there is mitches audio switcher, but this is more for multiple devices going into the carpc, not a hu(it is controlled through the usb port):
Thanks for the reply soundman98! The current model that radio Shack sells also has video inputs and outputs. The one I had like 20 years ago was audio only.
I did look at the USB one, but that would require me to have the PC on to switch. I am still looking, but may end up making one.
actually, i have used a switcher like that for audio only--the extra couple jacks just go un-used. in fact, i have also used a composite/left audio/right audio switcher in the place of a component red/green/blue video switcher and it also worked good..
i broke out the parts express catalog and checked-- they don't have any audio-only switchers..
i did find this:
though at $150, the a/v switcher is a cheaper route(note, it requires 24vdc, so won't work in 12vdc electrical systems).
I found this one and may just spring for it as it looks like I could mount it in the opening next to the DVD drive:
Parts Express was one of the first places I checked along with Radio Shack. I did not think of MCM or Mouser and Full Compass had ones more expensive than MCM...
Thanks for your help!
