Amplified in-wall controller for lyriQ multi-room audio systems
Our take on the On-Q lyriQ™ Studio High Performance Keypad by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
This high-performance in-wall amplified keypad offers convenient pushbutton operation of your lyriQ multi-room music system. The keypad has easy-to-use controls for muting and volume adjustment, and includes a source button that lets you remotely select up to four different audio sources when used with a multi-source system. The built-in IR (infrared) sensor allows you to use On-Q's universal wireless remote to control system playback from across the room.
Each keypad contains a powerful 20-watt-per-channel Class D stereo amplifier that delivers rich, clean sound for large rooms or outdoor applications. A mono-summed line output provides a convenient connection for a powered subwoofer, and it even features a built-in 80Hz low-pass filter for passing only bass frequencies.
