SonaFlex Technical Tips: Connecting Speakers Q&A

Parallel Speakers

Speaker Wiring Guidelines

  • Speakers may be mono or stereo
  • Default output settings: mono, 50% volume and muted.
  • It's safe and convenient to install speakers with live music - un-mute all outputs and set a moderate volume level during speaker installation.
  • Specify speaker output configurations using the front panel controls or the SonaFlex Setup Utility.

Q: Is there a limit to the number of speakers that can be connected to one SF-16M?
A: Yes, it depends on the impedance of the speakers. As a general rule, connect only one 4 ohm or 6 ohm speaker to each output. You may connect two 8 ohm speakers to any or all outputs. Learn more.

Q: How can I make speakers mono or stereo?
Mono or stereo may be selected per speaker pair. Use front panel controls or the PC Setup Utility to set up each output as mono or stereo. Note: Only adjacent odd+even outputs may be stereo pairs, e.g. 1+2, or 5+6.

Q: Can I safely install speakers while the amplifier is playing?
A: Yes. If you short the wires on any output it shuts down until the short is removed; there is no possibility of damage to the amp or the speaker.

Q: The amplifier seems to be on, but there is no sound on the connected speakers.
A: Check to see if the output(s) are muted, and make sure a source is connected to the input that is selected. Check to see if the source is playing.
