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
Dayton Audio Sola Nero Bluetooth Speaker Black is rated 4.1875 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great - at this $99 price pointI've been using it for two weeks in my workout room and it's great for a $99 Bluetooth speaker. It does not distort at full volume, even when I have the Beats Audio on my HTC phone activated. I like the fact that the volume is only controlled via the paired phone - it makes sense to change playlists and adjust the volume from one point. If you are not looking for an audiophile type unit, but want good clean audio with decent highs and bass, this will suit you as it did me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent size, decent sound with one caveat.I bought this as soon as I was able to - I was very excited to get my hands on a bluetooth speaker that didn't cost $250 or look like it was out of a sci-fi movie. When using, it pairs instantly and usually offers good clarity, though at times the volume will slowly change in level. I'm not sure if this is the BT receiver or what (?), as my phone sits 5 feet away from the device when it happens. I don't think it is my phone, as the volume doesn't vary using BT audio with my car stereo.The frequency response is listed as 70 - 18Khz, which I would believe only if it was rated @ +/- 6 db. If there is much sound audible 10khz-12khz, I would definitely be surprised.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Far too much bassI really wanted to like this. Like others, I did a lot of research, and thought this would be the one. I've enjoyed lots of dayton audio products, and expected no less here. While it is solid and clear, the EQ is way off. Far too much bass. If you are a bass-head, you may really enjoy this. If you want to listen to spoken word, forget it. Vocals sound like they come through a wool blanket. I ended up with an iPhone dock made by JBL and it is much more enjoyable to listen to.With proper EQ (and perhaps the omnipresent bass-boost for those that want that), I think this could be a winner. Until then, back to the drawing board, PE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect iPod speaker for the office!I looked a pricier speaker options in the $300 range but was not impressed in the bang for the buck. So, I ordered the Dayton Audio Sola speaker for $99.80 and it's the best $100 bucks I've ever spent. By day I'm a marketer, but by night I'm a semi-pro musician. I've listened to everything on the Sola from dance music to R&B and switch Bluetooth connections between my desktop Mac and iPod. While the bass is full and clear, it's not overpowering like my sub-woofers. I don't even turn the sub on now. The mids are crisp and open and the highs, though subdued, are more than adequate. I'm thinking of getting another Sola for a spare bedroom at home.

Dayton Audio Sola Nero Bluetooth Speaker Black

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.

Can the lineout be used to drive a small powered sub?

Asked by: Getdadams
Actually found the manual online and it answered that it was intended for a subwoofer which means its controlled by the volume which brings up another point. How is the volume controlled? No controls on the box and it's not mentioned in the manual.

Internal battery...portable?  If so, what is the battery life?

Asked by: NewB
This unit does not have a built in battery, it is powered by the included wall adapter only.

Can this be used with a bluetooth headset as a PA?

Asked by: windle87
Unfortunately no.

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.

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.
