Main Controller The BTQ-VM4/VM8 is a compact PA/VA controller that offers 4 and 8 monitored speaker zones respectively. Each controller can cascade with up to 31 BTQ-SL8 secondary units via local digilink, and up to 64 x BTQ-VM4/BTQ-VM8/BTQ-SG8 via global-net.
BTQ VM4/VM8

The BTQ-VM4/VM8 is a compact PA/VA controller that offers 4 and 8 monitored speaker zones respectively. Each controller can cascade with up to 31 BTQ-SL8 secondary units via local digilink, and up to 64 x BTQ-VM4/BTQ-VM8/BTQ-SG8 via global-net. This will then extend as little as 4 monitor A/B speaker zones to a large networked system of up to 16,384 zones. The BOUTIQUE controller comes fully integrated with 250W or 500W high efficiency Class-D amplifier built-in.

Utilizing switching technology, the BOUTIQUE system is capable of discrete paging into multiple zones from a single channel amplifier. By adding a second, external amplifier to the first, it creates a background music channel and a back-up amplifier channel at the same time.

Additional features with the use of attenuators on impedance monitored speaker lines, ambient noise sensing via optional Ethernet based microphone, and a variety of local control features directly from the front panel.

Should fiber or copper not be an option, units can also be networked via IP. The VoIP interface with standard SIP protocol allows for easy integration with IP-PBX and IP phone; or for full integration with TERRACOM System for network paging, control, intercom, system monitoring, and audio streaming in intranet.
