Yes and no.
The Sonora SWME2 SWM Expander
you see above is a clean and compact way to use two SWM multiswitches. With the SWME2 you can use two SWM8s, two SWM16s, or one of each.
However, for users of the Sonora SWME4 Expander
, we don't recommend using SWM16s. That product has not been engineered or tested for SWM16 devices and while they might work, we can't make any guarantees in your particular situation.
If you need to use multiple SWMs in the same closet, the most economical way is to use splitters designed for the task like Skywalker's 23304D
. Use four splitters (one for each satellite line) and make sure that all the lines from the splitter go into the same input on each SWM. In other words, all the inputs from the first splitter should go into the first input on the SWM.
