    Default Re: Definition of an AB Box

    The only thing I ever heard called an AB box was a switch box for the television to switch from signal from cable back to the antena on the roof for when the cable went out.

    I guess that would make an AB Box a box containing a SPDT switch.

    Maybe you had a 3-way (two switch locations) for the light fixture. Don't know what that has to do with the lamp socket, if a lamp or bulb burns out replace the bulb.

    I used an AB switch to set up my television vs the vcr and dvd and at that time a video disc player. The television was on one side of the switch (A)and everything else was connected to the (B)side of the switch. Depending what I wanted to watch I just used the appropriate switch. Basically, an AB switch is just a "splitter". Hope this helps.

    Ah!............. An Anheuser Busch box!

    Good call Jack, Good call.

    Yes, I think it could be used with other circuits as long as it does not overload them.

    Thank goodness we are getting to the bottom of this!.......... Ain't the internet great? The power of many minds working in unison.

    The only AB switch I'm familiar with is really a "splitter" just like on your cable TV. I used one side of the switch to feed dvd, vcr, and video disc recorder into one TV. The other side of the switch was for feeding cable only to 2 TV's at once. Hope this helps.
