Chapter 1: Introduction
The S1616A is the culmination of twenty-three years of ELAN experience in the design and
perfection of multi-source/multi-zone controllers and amplifiers. Incorporating the features and
reliability that has made ELAN a firmly established manufacturer of multi-room A/V products, the
S1616A is ELAN’s most powerful and flexible multi-source/multi-zone controller to date. The
S1616A is an integrated controller and amplifier whose inputs and outputs may be flexibly
configured in either stereo or mono. Used in Single Chassis configuration the S1616A allows for 8
stereo inputs or 16 mono inputs or for combinations of stereo/mono as the project requires.
Alternatively, the S1616A may be used in Dual Chassis configuration that provides sixteen stereo
inputs and sixteen stereo outputs per Dual Chassis pair. In Single Chassis mode up to sixteen
S1616A units can be linked for a total of 128 stereo outputs or 256 mono outputs. In Dual Chassis
mode eight pairs of S1616A units can be linked together providing 128 stereo outputs. The S1616A
is a dedicated g! system device and requires an HC series controller for configuration and
operation.
This unit has been designed with ultimate flexibility in mind. Allowing operation from all g!
interfaces, including iPad and iPhone, and being ultimately expandable the S1616A is the perfect
solution for mid to large audio and control systems. Multiple control methods combine with
expandability to offer the perfect solution for larger audio/video and automation control systems.
The ELAN Story
Located in Carlsbad, CA USA, ELAN is a part of The AVC Group, a collection of integration-centric

S1616A INSTALLATION MANUAL
Chapter 2: System Design and Applications
Introduction
The first step to a good design is to map the system. It is advisable to mark up a copy of the house
floor plan with speaker, touchpad, touchscreen, volume control, and equipment locations etc.
Make sure that all locations are decided upon before pre-wiring commences so that all necessary
wiring and installation hardware is in place. This unit will be interfacing with other components
such as amplifiers, source components, communications controllers, serial controllers, and user
interfaces, so it is essential that ALL system components are accounted for prior to the pre-wire
stage.
Secondly, make a detailed list of all components. Include source equipment, touchpads,
touchscreens, volume controls, amplifiers, communications gear and the S1616A itself. Be sure to
include necessary electrical boxes, structured wiring enclosures, telephone lines, rough-in
brackets, patch cords, power supplies, etc.
Design
The S1616A is a very flexible controller and as such many design opportunities exist.
Understanding the capabilities of the S1616A is critical. What follows are design definitions that will
help you maximize the capabilities of the S1616A in your installations.
Amplifier Mode
Information about Amplifier Mode is available in the S1616A Amplifier Mode Instruction Manual
available at www.elanhomesystems/dealer.

Multi-Zone Operation
When used as a multi-zone controller amplifier the S1616A has two chassis options – Single
Chassis or Dual Chassis. These distinctions apply primarily to how the inputs are configured.
Additional S1616As (referred to as Units in this manual) will share identical input configurations as
the first chassis.
Single Chassis Mode
The Single Chassis system provides 8 stereo inputs or 16 mono inputs or any combination in
between. Figure 2-1 shows the input configuration options for a Single Chassis installation.
Whether an input is stereo or mono, the S1616A automatically adapts it to the stereo and mono
outputs.

Figure 2-1
In systems configured for use with a C2 communication controller input pair 15/16 is automatically
set to mono and input 16 is used for the C2. In this configuration a maximum of seven stereo
sources and one mono source are allowed. Figure 2-2 indicates how to connect seven stereo
sources and one mono source along with a C2.

S1616A INSTALLATION MANUAL
ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
Dual Chassis Mode
A Dual Chassis system uses one chassis for the left channels and one chassis for the right
channels. This configuration is always a 16 stereo input system. Expanding the outputs of this
mode requires two additional units. Up to 8 pairs of S1616As may be used in a system.
The C2 communications controller connects to input 16 in a Dual Chassis system and requires a Y
cable or use of the loop out from the first to the second chassis. See Figure 2-3.
Figure 2-3
Inputs
Level Matching
In both Single Chassis and Dual Chassis modes each source allows Level Matching for a
professional result. Input levels are individually adjustable in the configuration utility (see Appendix
A).
Digital Inputs
Two optical digital inputs are available for use in Single Chassis systems that have only one unit.
Utilizing the left optical input overrides analog inputs 1 & 2. Utilizing the right optical input overrides
analog inputs 9 & 10.
Optical inputs are disabled in multiple unit Single Chassis installations and in all Dual Chassis
installations.
Signal Sensing
All audio inputs feature a built-in signal sensor that may be used to trigger g! events. Please refer
to the g! Configurator manual for information on using triggers.

ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
Zones
A zone is an area that has independent access to sources. The S1616A is unique in that it
separates zones from outputs. Both Single Chassis and Dual Chassis are configurable for up to 64
zones. A system designed with only 4 zones could still utilize all 16 outputs.
Below is an example of a 4 zone 16 output system (Figure 2-4). In this example the zones are the
Master Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room and Patio. The Master Bedroom is equipped with
architectural left/right speakers, the Dining Room utilizes a pair of stereo speakers, the Living
Room uses two pair of stereo speakers, and the Patio has extensive summed mono outdoor
speakers, including two outdoor subwoofers utilizing the S1616A’s electronic crossover.

S1616A INSTALLATION MANUAL
ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
Sub Zones
Sub zones start life as a zone, but are attached to another zone in the Configurator. A sub zone
shares source selection, power status and zone grouping attributes with the master zone but has
independent volume control. An example of this would be a master bedroom and sitting area. The
master bedroom is the master zone and the sitting area is the sub zone. Either area can select the
source or turn the system on/off but each area has independent volume control from any of the g!
interfaces.
Zone Configuration
Each zone has multiple settings that are set in the Configurator (see Appendix A):
•
Zone Name – This is the name that shows up on the systems user interfaces
•
Sub Zone – Attaches source selection and power status to another zone
•
Whole House Music – Include/exclude zone from whole house music mode
•
Zone Group – Groups (none/1-8) the zone with other zones
•
Maximum Volume – Limits volume output
•
Turn On Max Volume – Limits the turn on volume
•
Turn On Minimum Volume – Establishes minimum volume at turn on
•
Bass – Establishes bass level (set to X level or last) at zone turn on
•
Treble – Establishes treble level (set to X level or last) at zone turn on
•
Loudness – Establishes loudness contour status (engage/disengage) at zone turn on
•
Do Not Disturb – Establishes DND status (on/off/last) at zone turn on
•
C2 Status – Allows/disallows paging and doorbell in the zone
•
C2 Volume – Establishes page and doorbell level
Outputs
The S1616A has only amplified outputs. Should your installation require more amplifier power than
the S1616A’s 50WPC @ 8Ω and 75WPC @ 4Ω power output you can use one of any number of
speaker level to line level converters on the market to convert the amplified output to a useable line
level. The S1616A, like all digital amplifiers, utilizes a floating ground system on its outputs and is
not compatible with any converter designed for common ground. You can check the converter by
putting a meter on the negative (–) input terminals of the converter and testing for continuity. If the
meter shows no continuity then the converter is suitable for use with the S1616A. Never use a line
level converter with common ground inputs as it will damage the S1616A. You may use a suitable
speaker level to line level converter and a speaker simultaneously on the same output.
A fixed level line out may be created by setting the Turn on Max Volume to a level, say 71, and the
Turn on Minimum Volume to one digit less, 70 in this case. The actual numbers will vary depending
on the converter you use. It is currently not possible to disable the zone volume control so we
recommend that the fixed output zone be configured as a Sub Zone to another zone and the fixed
output zone not be shown on any user interfaces. Changing the source in the Master Zone will
change the source on the fixed output sub zone while the volume control will have no effect.

Single Chassis
A Single Chassis system has 16 individual outputs. Additional outputs may be added to the
installation by adding additional S1616A units. The maximum number of S1616A units in a Single
Chassis system is 16, which provides for up to 256 outputs. Each output may be configured as
Left, Right, or Mono and assigned to any zone. See Figures 2-5, 2-6, 2-7, 2-8 or the S1616A
Designer’s Guide for output configuration examples.

Dual Chassis
In a Dual Chassis system both the outputs on the left and the right chassis are matched. This
means that output 1 of the left chassis is always connected to the same zone as output 1 of the
right chassis. Outputs are expanded in pairs of units and a total of 8 pairs of S1616A units may be
used on one installation providing 128 stereo outputs.
Output Settings
•
Name – For convenience each output may be given a text name
•
Zone – Assigns output to a zone

Dual Chassis Configurations
Dual Chassis offers more source inputs, but all inputs are stereo. Outputs are also always stereo,
with the lower number unit (i.e. 1 of units 1 and 2) being the left channel and the higher number
(i.e. 2 of units 1 and 2) being the right. Figure 2-9 shows a 16 input, 16 output configuration. The
loop outputs are used to expand the system to 32 or more outputs. The C2, when used, always
connects to input 16. It must be connected to both units either by looping from one unit to the other
or by using a Y cable.

Chapter 3: Unit Addressing
All configurations, with the exception of setting the unit address, are accomplished using the g!
Configurator. See Appendix A for configuration instructions.
The S1616A requires firmware version 2.0.1.1 or later, which must be loaded into the chassis using
the Elan Firmware Updater. The current version of the firmware may be checked by powering the
unit up and observing the bottom line of the S1616A’s LCD display. See Figure 3-1.
Figure 3-1
Updating The Firmware
Using the ELAN Firmware Updater or g! Tools connect your laptop to the S1616A with a mini-USB
cable to the USB connector on the rear panel of the S1616A. See Figure 3-2. Please refer to the
instructions for ELAN Firmware Updater for how to operate the software. Select the “S1616A MultiZone” firmware and upload. When the firmware update is complete disconnect the USB cable. The
S1616A will automatically re-boot and display the new firmware version.

Setting the Unit ID
Each S1616A in your system must have a unique Unit ID from 1 to 16 on Single Chassis systems
and Dual Chassis systems. The default Unit ID is 1. The Unit ID must be set prior to Configurator
programming. If your installation is a Single Chassis configuration and you have a only one
S1616A you can skip this step. In Dual Chassis mode installations Configurator assumes that the
odd numbered units are used for the LEFT channel and even numbered units are used for the
RIGHT channel.
Setting of the Unit ID is accomplished with the S1616A’s front panel LCD display along with the
MENU, /\, and \/ buttons.

Chapter 4: Connections
The S1616A has many rear panel connections so it is important to label cables with their
destination or source correctly. The Configurator can print out your input and output connections to
aid in hookup. See Appendix A for more information.
Use high quality line level RCA connector type cables for source connections to ensure the lowest
possible noise and best sound performance.
For most applications, use 16AWG 2 conductor speaker cable. For wiring runs longer than 80 feet,
it is recommended to use 14AWG 2 conductor speaker cable. The S1616A's high quality, gold
plated 5-way binding posts will accommodate speaker cabling sizes up to 12AWG. Attaching
banana plugs will enable the connection of larger cable sizes.
Line Level Audio Inputs
Connect line level input audio by inserting RCA cables into the audio input connectors.
Optical Digital Audio Inputs
The optical digital inputs may be used only on a Single Chassis system with only a single unit.
Multiple unit installations and all Dual Chassis systems utilize the analog inputs exclusively. When
utilized the optical inputs override analog inputs 1/2 and 9/10 (Figure 4-1).

Speaker Binding Post
The S1616A is equipped with gold plated, 5-way speaker binding posts. This will allow for five
methods of speaker wire termination; bare wire, spade lug, pin, single banana and dual banana
plug. Label all speaker wires with their destination to ensure easy configuration. To attach speaker
wires use the following method (Figure 4-6):
1.
Carefully split the speaker wire insulation at least two inches.
2.
Strip 1/2 inch of the insulation from the speaker wire conductor exposing the bare wire.
3.
Twist the wire strands of each conductor, if using banana plugs, attach wire to banana plug
observing polarity.
4.
If using banana plug; insert plug ends into binding post observing correct polarity. If using the
bare wire method; loosen red and black binding post caps and insert the bare wire through the
hole in the post. Tighten the knob until the wire is securely clamped.
5.
Note that the S1616A utilizes a floating ground on all outputs and is not compatible with
common grounded devices like transformers, and some volume controls. If there is any
question about the device you are connecting’s configuration use a test meter and check for
continuity between the negative terminals. If there is continuity the device is wired for common
ground and will damage the S1616A if connected.
CAUTION! Speaker Wire connections must be made with the amplifier OFF

S1616A INSTALLATION MANUAL
ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
Appendix A: Configurator
For Single Chassis and Dual Chassis Mode configurations programming is done using g!
Configurator. Core Module release 5.4 or greater is required to integrate the S1616A systems.
For Amplifier Mode S1616A’s please see the Amplifier Mode programming instructions in the
Amplifier Mode Instruction Manual. It’s available at www.elanhomesystems/dealer.
These instructions assume that the proper firmware has been installed and the Unit IDs have been
set in each S1616A. If these steps have not been completed please see page 19 and complete
these steps prior to programming with Configurator.
The configuration of the S1616A is similar to other zone controllers in g!, but adds several new
screens to handle the source and zone configurations available in the S1616A.
The configuration MUST be uploaded for any changes to take effect. You will be warned when
navigating away from the controller if you have made changes and have not uploaded them.
Changes are not lost if you choose not to “Write”, but they will not work until you do.
Step 1: Create a Chassis
The S1616A uses the VIA!NET communications device so an additional device does not need to
be added.
On the Media Tab right click “Audio Zone Controllers” and select “Add New Audio Zone Controller”.
Name your new device and select either ELAN S1616A (Dual Chassis Mode) or ELAN S1616A
(Single Chassis Mode) and press OK. See Figure A-1.

ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
Select the newly added S1616A, and configure the basic parameters in the properties window as
shown below in Figure A-2:
Figure A-2
Select VIA!NET for the Communication Device.
Specify the number of units. This is the total number of S1616A chassis’ in the installation.
Specify the number of zones. Up to 64 unique zones are available.
Specify the number of sources (Single Chassis only). Up to 16 sources are available.
Specify if there is a C2 controller.
Specify the C2 Page Mode if applicable.
Step 2: Setup Source Inputs
Open the Sources node on the ELAN S1616A, and then configure each source one at a time as
this allows you to set all source parameters without changing screens. This is shown below in
Figure A-3:
Figure A-3
You are required to select “Apply” before leaving the current source after making a change.
Set the source device.
Select an icon for the source.
Adjust the Source Volume if necessary. This setting is used primarily for variable output level MP3
players, such as the Squeezebox and the HC Audio.

Importing Configurations from an S1616A
It is possible to import the current configuration from the S1616A’s previously programmed.
Importing overwrites the current configuration and importing does not include any of the names that
were entered (i.e. speaker, source, and zone names).
Select the S1616A zone controller and note at the bottom of the configuration screen the buttons
shown in Figure A-8:
Figure A-8
Check to verify that you have the correct Single Chassis or Dual Chassis mode. Correct if
necessary. The number of Units in the installation and the units in Configurator must match prior to
importing. Check the Number of Units setting and verify that they match (see Figure A-9).

Click Import Settings from S1616A and confirm your desire to import and overwrite the current
configuration and Configurator will read the data from the attached unit(s) and populate the
configuration accordingly.
Notes on House Modes and Groups
The S1616A supports two different groups: the Whole House Mode (WHM) group and a collection
of up to 8 Zone Groups. This section provides details to explain group support.
Each zone can be a member of the Whole House Music (WHM) group and a member of one of the
8 individual Zone Groups. When WHM or a Zone Group is enabled a source change in any zone in
the group changes all zones in the group to that source. It is possible for multiple Zone Groups to
be active at the same time – e.g., First Floor Group on and Second Floor Group on.
WHM is system wide. Individual Zone Groups cannot be active while WHM is active.
WHM and Zone Groups are activated via the Settings Page. For each zone the Settings Page can
have buttons for WHM On, Group On, and WHM/Groups Off, when appropriate. Buttons for each
are automatically generated with you create a settings page. If the zone is not configured for WHM
or Group mode, then the corresponding buttons will appear in the disabled state. Alternatively, you
can remove any of these buttons on a zone by zone basis.
The following sections describe the behavior when the WHM and Groups are activated. Keep in
mind that you must first turn on a zone and select a source, before you can engage WHM or
enable a Group. Pressing the WHM or Group On buttons when no source is active has no effect.
When the Group On button is pressed for a zone:
The Group the zone is a member of is enabled. All zones in the Group turn on to the source that is
active in the zone that turned on the Group. If WHM was enabled, it is now disabled. Any zones
that were in the WHM group, but are not in the new group, continue to play what they were playing.
While a Group is enabled a source change in any zone in the group will change all zones in the
group to the same source.
When the Whole House Mode On button is pressed for a zone behavior is similar to above:
WHM mode is enabled. All zones in the WHM group turn on to the source that is active in the zone
that turned on WHM. All zone Groups are disabled. If a zone was part of a previously active group,
but not part of the whole house mode, it continues to play what is was playing. While WHM is
enabled a source change in any zone in the WHM group will change all zones in the WHM group to
the same source.
When the Whole House Music Off or Group Off button is pressed:
The active Group that the zone is a member of is disabled. There is no change to any zones. They
continue to play what they are playing. When WHM mode and the zone’s Group are both disabled
a change in source selection is local to the zone.
If WHM mode is active, and any zone in WHM is turned Off (using the zone off button, not the
WHM/Group Off button) all zones in WHM are also turned off and WHM is disabled, so that turning
back on that same zone does not turn on other zones or re-enable WHM.

Page 37
S1616A INSTALLATION MANUAL
ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
If a Zone Group is active, and any zone in that group is turned OFF all zones in that group are also
turned off and that group is disabled, so that turning back on that same zone does not turn on other
zones or re-enable the group. Other groups currently active are not impacted.
UI controls in g! to manage the groups are typically placed on a settings page for the desired
zones. The g! Configurator provides a group control that has four buttons: one to turn the Zone
Group On, one to turn the Zone Group Off, WHM On, and WHM Off. As with other zone controllers,
right-click the zone, and select Add Settings Page for Zone to create a settings page for any
desired zone in the S1616A.
Fixed Output Zones
There are two ways to create a fixed output zone – using a Generic Single Zone Controller and
using a Dummy Zone. The Generic Single Zone Controller method takes more time but is cleaner
for the end user.
Generic Single Zone Controller Method
Configure a zone in the S1616A with all of the source, WHM, Group, C2 and output level attributes
you desire in the fixed zone. Name it something like “Dining Fixed Out”.
Create a Settings Page for the “Fixed Out” zone
It will look something like this when you are done (Figure A-10).
Figure A-10
Attach the outputs to this zone in the Output tree as you normally would.
Create a Generic Single Zone Controller and name it something like “Dining Interface”
Under the “Interface” controller set On/Off Control Type to Discrete and Volume Control to NO
It should look something like this: (Figure A-11)

Now select Zone 1 of the Dining Interface and change the name to the name that you want to show
up in the user interfaces and change the Settings Interface to the Dining Fixed Out Settings and set
the sources you wish to show and in what order and hit Apply (see Figure A-14).
Figure A-14

Page 40
S1616A INSTALLATION MANUAL
ELAN HOME SYSTEMS
Finally, adjust your Interfaces to show the Dining Room zone as applicable and hide the Dining
Fixed Out on all interfaces (see Figure A-15).
Figure A-16
Dummy Zone Method
When you create your Zone Controller set it up for one more zone than you actually have.
Configure the first zone in the S1616A with the bass, treble, loudness and output level attributes
you desire in the fixed zone. WHM and Grouping settings will not matter. Name it something like
“Dining Fixed Out”. It will look like something like this when you are done (see Figure A-17).
Figure A-17
Attach the outputs to this zone in the Outputs tree as you normally would.
Select another zone that will be the visible “dummy” zone and name it with the name you wish to
be visible in the user interfaces.
Set the WHM, Group, and C2 attributes you wish. Volume levels will not matter.
Go back to the Fixed Output zone and make it a SubZone Of the “dummy” zone.
On the Interfaces tab remove the Fixed Output zone from all interfaces using the “dummy” zone as
the control interface for all UI’s.
The volume control and mute for the “dummy” zone will look like they work but will have no effect.
