AD-16X Audio Matrix Switcher


Ideal for larger installations, the AD-16x Audio Distribution Matrix provides the routing of 16 audio sources to 16 zones. Delivering complete audio management in every zone, the AD-16x offers parametric equalizing, and adjustments for input gain, tone, volume, and balance control, all configurable via a convenient web interface. Eight remote source inputs offer even greater flexibility, and when more output zones are required, eight AD-16x units can be cascaded to provide up to 128 zones of audio. Designed to be an extension of the RTI control system, the AD-16x

provides the audio switching while RTI amplifiers deliver Cool Power to every speaker. For the utmost in simplicity, RTI central processors and user interfaces intuitively manage all of the audio sources. Information such as the selected source, volume level, and tone control settings are available for each zone.

With RTI control systems, audio is just the beginning. Imagine every aspect of your environment working in complete harmony - from audio and video to lighting, temperature, and more. Such scenarios are only made possible from an audio distribution system backed by a professional-grade control system.


  • Provides routing of 16 stereo audio sources to 16 zones.
  • Eight remote source inputs allow devices located in other rooms to be used as a global source using the RSP-1 accessory.
  • Up to four AD-16x units may be source-looped, for up to 64 output zones.
  • Custom project labeling allows integrators to name all of the zones and sources for more efficient programming (via AD64 driver).
  • Dynamic audio source management tracks the sources that are active, allowing users to select a different one and avoid inadvertent music changes (via AD64 driver).
  • Pre-amp outputs require external amplification via RTI or third-party audio amplifier.
  • Eight bands of parametric audio equalizing in all zones.
  • Built-in web interface allows zones to be configured and grouped, allowing multiple outputs to be controlled as a single zone.
  • Audio input trim adjustment on each source.
