Has anyone seen a Wallplate Speaker selector switch anywhere?

I'm after one that can select speakers A or B or A+B, and preferably with inbuilt impedence matching.  Doesn't need to be huge power handling either, say 50 - 100W.

Just looking for a nice way to hook one stereo to either in indoor or outdoor speakers, or both.

Im assuming your AV Reciever has the A, B, A+B selector function on the unit itself (it might be a designated button or remote function). Usually this is enough to do what you want to do.  

You wont be able to get a wallplate as this isnt possible as the amplifiyer switching is done within the receiver circuits itself.

My suggestion is to wire your indoor speakers to A and outside speakers to B and have an inline on/off switch and or volume control outside if you think you or your remote wont want to go back inside to switch the outputs (maybe because you have muddy boots from the garden or just dont want to move away from the BBQ if the phone rings etc etc etc.

Hope this helps
