For total control over your Wet Sounds system, look to the WS-220 BT 4 Zone Level Controller with Bluetooth®. The WS-220 BT allows independent control of four separate audio zones and a simple master volume control. All four zones are equal and can be set up to control your favorite Wet Sounds amplifiers to fed zones such as our tower speakers, cabin speakers and subwoofers. The WS-220 BT is designed to give a user ultimate control at their fingertips over any Audio System.
Equipped with a talkback microphone, the WS-220 BT automatically mutes the music on Zone 1 when the Talk Button is pressed. This allows for communication over a wide area, then reverts back to the music when the talk button is released.
You can choose to listen to music from a main source unit or an auxiliary input and for maximum versatility, the WS-220 BT also includes Bluetooth® compatibility for wireless steaming convenience from your smartphone, or any other Bluetooth® enabled device. All three sources have independent gain adjustments for the perfect matched output on any source.
For the ultimate party experience, hook up the optional Wet Sounds A-Link kit, which allows you to share your audio wirelessly with other Wet Sounds equipped systems for multiple listening experiences!

When the microphone talk button is released, music returns to the previous level.

3. Zones 2-4. These control whatever amplifiers are connected to them. These zones are equal in operation, so they can be assigned in any way needed. The Master Level overrides all these zones.
4. Mic. This controls the level of the microphone when the talkback button is pressed. Mic level is unaffected by the Master level control.
5. Source. Allows switching between Main (head unit), Auxiliary (wired audio device), or Bluetooth® enabled wireless device.
