Xilica announced the launch of its range of networked amplifiers and ceiling speakers, Xilica Sonia. The new series modernizes installed audio systems for the networked architectures common in today’s meeting and learning spaces.
“Xilica’s new generation of integrated room audio solutions offer a complete package that provides IT departments with a lower total cost of ownership of AV technology assets inside the many spaces that they manage,” said Shaun Robinson, VP Product Management, Xilica. “Sonia takes another big step forward in developing installed audio solutions that are simple to design and deploy while streamlining cost to enable great audio in any space.”
The initial Xilica Sonia series includes the Sonia C5, a compact 5.25” in-ceiling speaker with a wide, even dispersion pattern, enabling fewer speakers in large spaces. The speaker is powered by Xilica’s new Sonia Amp, a PoE+ enabled amplifier with an integrated network switch that can power up to eight Sonia C5 speakers in a daisy chain. The Sonia series follows the IT-friendly design that began with Xilica Solaro DSPs and the recently introduced family of Xilica Gio networked endpoints.
For greater simplicity in installation, Sonia C5 and Sonia Amp are Plenum-rated and feature integrated mounting capabilities that allow Sonia Amp to be affixed to the rear of a Sonia C5 speaker, eliminating the need for external amplifier racks.
