The SOWA Wireless Technology

Connect Unlimited Speakers

With SOWA you can pair as many speakers as you wish. Simply power them on, and they automatically connect over the SOWA Wireless system. One speaker will become the "host" and the remaining speakers will "join". 

Connect your desired audio source (microphone, phone, tablet, computer) to the "host" speaker and the audio is automatically transmitted to all the speakers in "join" mode. 

Ultra Fast Transmission

The SOWA Wireless technology transmits the audio at 44 KHz (16 bit) with less than 10 ms latency, making it very suitable for speech and even musical performances. 

Every speaker in the system play in perfect sync (unless you want to manually delay a speaker - see below).

The User Interface

Every SOWA speaker has this user interface on the back. This means that every speaker can be in "host" or "join" mode. 

The interface is divided into three rows: connectivity, audio inputs and local controls.

1st row: Connectivity

First step is always to power up all your SOWA speakers. You can then see the battery level and check which speaker is "host" and which speakers are in "join" mode. This row is also where you adjust the global volume (volume of every speaker in the system).

2nd row: Audio inputs

The second row is only relevant for the "host" speaker. You can connect an audio source in three ways: Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5 mm mini-jack or using the XLR / jack connector. The volume can be adjusted individually for each input. You can even select one of our EQ settings if you are using a microphone.

3rd row: Local Controls

Settings in this row only apply to the individual speaker. You can adjust the local volume, select between L/R/mono (mixed) and add a delay to the single speaker if desirable.
