RTI’s new AD-16x 16x16 audio matrix switcher provides users with intuitive audio management. Designed for large, multi-zone audio installations, the AD-16x provides routing for 16 audio sources across 16 zones, while RTI Cool Power amplifiers (CP-450/CP-1650) drive audio to every speaker. The AD-16x also features eight remote source inputs, which allow devices located in other rooms to be used as global sources. When the system grows past 16 zones, up to four AD-16x units can be cascaded for up to 64 output zones. The switch also delivers complete audio management, including parametric equalizing, zone grouping, and balance control—all configurable via web interface. Setting the AD-16x apart is the engineering that enables this matrix to become an extension of the RTI ecosystem. At the heart of this integration is the AD64 two-way driver running on an RTI XP processor, which features custom project labeling, allowing integrators to name all zones and sources and eliminating tedious programming by ID number.
