The Niles WVC100 Weatherproof Stereo Volume Control with Selectable Impedance Magnification is a weatherproof stereo impedance-magnifying volume controls that connect between the speaker-level output of an amplifier, speaker selector, or a Niles VCS HUB8 distribution hub and your speakers. The WVC 100 is a wall-mounted volume control designed specifically for environmental use. You can adjust the volume of remotely located speakers to which they are connected by attenuating the amplifier signal. To assure minimal dissipation of internal power with virtually no power wasted as heat, Niles volume controls use autoformers instead of L-pads as the volume-controlling element. The WVC 100 is an impedance-magnifying (IM) volume control. Unlike other brands, it has additional autoformer windings that magnify the impedance of connected speakers, while allowing all 12 steps to adjust the volume of the sound. Switches on the PC board select these windings. With the volume control providing impedance protection for your amplifier, you can create systems with no additional impedance-matching devices between the volume control and the amplifier. This product is also available in bone or as an enclosed surface mount volume control, each sold separately.

Works great, durable, looks good, and people like being able to adjust the music quickly outside.
Installation was difficult. You will notice that you need to install 4 different cables in this tiny box (that's 8 wires). You have 2 cables coming from your amp, and 2 cables going to your speakers.
The wires attach to a wire harness attached to the back of the knob. I didn't realize this until the end, but the entire wire harness snaps on and off of the back of the knob. gently and carefully pry the harnesses off, attach the wires, then snap each harness back on.
The only other advise is: label your wires. It's easy to lose track of which is which.
