Product Details

Dayton Audio Sola Nero Bluetooth Speaker Black

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.

Specifications: • Power output: 15 watts RMS x 2 (30 watts total) • Total harmonic distortion: <0.1% @ 30 watts • Signal-to-noise ratio: 103 dB, A weighted • Frequency response: 70-18,000 Hz • Crosstalk between inputs: 80 dB • Input impedance: 33k ohms ±5% • Input sensitivity: 750 mV • Channel separation: 95 dB • Efficiency: 85% • Dynamic range: >100 dB • Electrical requirement: 18VDC @ 2A center pin positive • Dimensions: 3.75" H x 10.44" W x 7.75" D • Weight: 6.2 lbs.

Cabinet

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.

Dayton Audio Sola Nero Bluetooth Speaker Black is rated 3.9643 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sola Nero Bluetooth SpeakerGreat sound for the money. fills most rooms with good quality sound. Not battery powered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Big DisappointmentI was very excited about this product...don't be! While the price seems good you would be better off spending twice as much on a Bose system sounding 10x better or half as much on a good pair of computer speakers. Sorry Parts Express, usually very happy with your goods!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as I'd hopedFound the sound to be quite muddy, especially for the size of the cabinet/speaker involved. Smaller Bluetooth systems out there sound much better and have wireless power capabilities

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it!!!!!I got this for work. A classy little stereo with more bass then you would expect. This is the best hundred dollars I have ever spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bang for the buck.Bought this to supplement a cheaper, more name brand wireless speaker. This speaker definitely sounds better, by far, but the bluetooth connectivity is dodgier. Of course, that's about what I expected from an audio focused company. I'd still recommend it to friends. Just go ahead and turn it off when not in use and re-paid when desired.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ignore the Stereophile reviewI've been looking for a "decent" Bluetooth speaker (which I know think is an oxymoron) for a while. Had a JamBox but sound was very thin and underpowered, and there was no way I would ever purchase anything from Bose. The Stereophile review made this sound promising (I usually respect Sam Tellig), so I ordered one of these, which arrived promptly. Unfortunately, though the unit was nicely powered, the sound was sub-standard, almost sub-woofery--boomy, very bass-oriented, with speech almost impossible to understand. Heavy to carry around, but I thought that might add to audio solidity. It didn't. Definitely not recommended.

Dayton Audio Sola Nero Bluetooth Speaker Black

Is there any way to turn off those annoying audio notifactions like "phone call ended" . It's loud and pointless, I know I ended the call.

Asked by: RSJa

Can the power adapter simply be plugged into a 220v AC line such as in Europe with a simple plug adapter, or would it need to be plugged into a power converter to 110v AC?

Asked by: Crozes
The power supply included with this will accept 100-220VAC input.

Hi - will I be able to play iTunes radio stations and apps like Pandora through the Sola by using my iPhone or iPad? I currently use an airport express and this seems to do the same thing. Thanks

Asked by: marktdj
Yes, anything your device can stream via Bluetooth with work with this speaker.

How would this work as a soundbar for a simple supplement to my Samsung LCD TV? Just looking for something clean looking without a lot of wires that is better sound than the TV.

Asked by: RichJ
This would work okay as a sound bar although it has no volume control ability, so you would have to use a headphone output in order to utilize the volume control function for the TV.

Out of the box, I find this to be too muddy, with an over-emphasis of bass and mid-bass.  Does this improve with break-in, or should I return the device?

Asked by: klaberte
This unit does have an emphasis in the bass department although like all new speakers this should mellow out a bit with break-in. I would recommend hanging on to all the packing materials and let it break in for a week or two. You have 45 days to return an item if you are not happy with it.
