Sola is the one and only stereo speaker you will ever need for listening to great music. Integrated Bluetooth technology allows quick and easy wireless connection to any Bluetooth-enabled device. The system features sophisticated speaker drivers coupled to an efficient, ultra-clean Class-T amplifier, filling any space, large or small, with energetic audiophile-quality sound unmatchable by similarly sized but battery powered speakers.
Sola's contemporary design complements any décor and is available in three finishes. A furniture-grade cabinet utilizes advanced acoustic construction that produces surprisingly full sound.
All volume and tone adjustments are made via your Bluetooth-enabled device, so there is no annoying mismatch or fumbling around between components. Sola also converts seamlessly to a speakerphone—you can conveniently answer incoming smartphone calls while listening to music.
A 3.5 mm audio input is included for wired connection of computers, MP3 players, and other devices as needed, along with a 3.5 mm audio output that allows connection of an active subwoofer system for even more bass. Dayton Audio’s Sola is a perfect fit for the bedroom, dorm, study, kitchen, or anywhere you want to enjoy great audio.

Sola's cabinet is constructed using a dense non-resonant wood composite material that features a sophisticated acoustic waveguide to increase the bass output. This waveguide also provides additional bracing to form a solid vibration-free, acoustically dead enclosure. The cabinet is then sanded, primed, and painted three times to create a furniture-quality finish. Finally, the entire front baffle is covered with 6 mm thick acoustic grade felt material to reduce any reflections and diffractions caused by the grill and the cabinet's leading edge.
2-1/2" Full-Range Driver
This purpose-built driver was developed by Dayton Audio to extract the best performance from Sola's compact enclosure. Each driver's 3/4" diameter voice coil is wound on a heat-resistant Kapton former for increased power handling. It utilizes a natural sounding paper cone with butyl rubber surround. A tall, domed paper dust cap stiffens the cone while acting as a phase plug to reduce high frequency cancellations and improve dispersion. To minimize driver distortion and further increase high frequency response, an inductance-controlling copper cap for the pole piece was incorporated.
Tested and Tuned
Sola was developed via a lengthy process that included multiple samples, modifications, tweaking, and tuning by Dayton Audio's talented and experienced engineers. The end result is an audio speaker solution that combines clean aesthetics, practical functionality, and superlative sonic performance. Everything that carries Dayton Audio's label meets stringent quality standards and is backed by industry-leading warranties and support.
