The contractor installed 5 ceiling speakers in my new coffee shop. Each speaker is mounted with a transformer of multiple inputs (Voltage/Power).

Speaker - Audiotrak S81005B, 8 ohms, 20 watts RMS.
Transformer - T2570 with 7 input wires:
25V-5w
25V-2.5w
25V-1.25w
25V-0.625w/70V-5W
70V-2.5w
70V-1.25w
70V-0.625w

I tried every input, all working, but different loudness. My receiver is Sony 200-Watt 2.0-Channel Stereo Receiver (STRDH100). 90 watts minimum RMS power each channel. Output Voltage: 500 mV/10 kohms.

The terminals for 2 channels are shared by the 5 speakers.

My question is - which "Votage/power" input on the transformer is best to use? How to decide?

Speaker are about 15-30ft away from the receiver. I'll buy 14 or 16 AMG cable.

Please advise. Thanks!

:confused: Why don't you ask your contractor??

The speaker setup you describe is intended to be driven by a 25v or 70v source. These "high-voltage" systems allow audio distribution to multiple speakers using relatively thin wiring without loss.

Check HERE for an education.

You will have to get some 70v transformers to hook up to the output of your amplifier to use it correctly with your speakers.
Output Voltage: 500 mV/10 kohms.
That is an INPUT voltage sensitivity necessary to drive the amplifier to full power - it is NOT an output voltage.
