One System, Many Applications
SonaFlex is about two things: sound quality and flexibility. Whether you install audio systems in commercial facilities or in homes, the SF-16M has the features and capabilities to handle just about any application you may encounter (see application examples). Its flexibility and musical power give end users so much more than traditional audio systems, while giving installers a streamlined installation process.
Flexible Input Options
Most pro and consumer audio sources can be used with the SF-16M via its unique FlexPort™ audio inputs. Up to four FlexPort audio modules can be connected, via Cat-5, to each SF-16M. Module options include balanced line/mic, XLR, digital coax/optical, and analog RCA inputs, accommodating anything from pro audio mixers to Apple TV media players. FlexPort modules include an illuminated button that may be used to trigger audio override at all pre-selected SF-16M outputs.
Any amplified output of the SF-16M can be assigned as mono or stereo, allowing for 16 mono, 8 stereo, or a mixture of both mono and stereo speaker locations per chassis. The SF-16M can split mono inputs to stereo outputs and combine stereo inputs to mono outputs. Up to four SF-16M units can be linked together to form a powerful 32 input x 64 output system, with shared source signals and optionally shared FlexPort signals.
Signal Processing Tools
The SF-16M provides a rich palette of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) tools that allow the installer to custom-tune for the speakers in every sonic environment. For basic installations, use DSP such as bass, treble, balance and loudness. For more advanced or commercial applications, use hi/low pass filters and 7-bands of parametric equalization per output. (View introductory videos.)
In situations where all you need is a powerful amp that works with the audio matrix you use today, the SF-16M excels in this configuration as well, providing 16 RCA inputs and DB-25 source audio loop outputs for system expansion. In addition, the SF-16M’s DB-25 input allows for quick connection to Audio Authority audio matrix switchers such as HLX and ADX. The built-in FlexPort audio inputs can still be used in pass-thru mode to override any on-board RCA audio input, enabling functions such as local source selection, paging/doorbell override, and room combining/segmentation.
Why Your Clients Will Love SonaFlex
Advanced setup tasks are easily performed using the PC setup utility (see the video tutorial for details). The SF-16M front panel VFD display allows for access to the most common settings required in a typical install. For added security, the front panel can be locked out to prevent tampering.
