    A/B box lets you switch between 2 sources either A or B...

    A/B/Y does the same but you can also use both A/B together..

    Hmmm I am looking at a Whirlwind A/B box and it can also select both apparently. Theres a switch to select between a and b and a both switch. Maybe they milabeled it and its supposed to be an A/B/Y box.

    The A/B/Y should also allow you to do the reverse: split a single input to 2 outputs.
