Xilica Sonia is a new range of networked amplifiers and ceiling speakers for IT-friendly collaboration spaces.
The initial Xilica Sonia series includes the Sonia C5, a 5.25in compact in-ceiling speaker with a wide, even dispersion pattern that Xilica claims enables fewer speakers in large spaces, such as classrooms and legislative chambers.
Sonia C5 is powered by Xilica’s new Sonia Amp, a PoE+-enabled amplifier with integrated network switch that can power up to eight Sonia C5 speakers in daisy-chain. With four individual channels, one Sonia Amp can also power Sonia C5 speakers across four neighbouring meeting rooms, creating additional cost savings and deployment simplicity.
Shaun Robinson, VP product management, Xilica, said: “Xilica’s new generation of integrated room audio solutions offer a complete package that provides IT departments with lower total cost of ownership of AV technology assets inside the many spaces that they manage. 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.”
