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?
A:
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.
