Product description

The SmoothTalker Z1 72dB Signal Booster kit increases 2G/3G and Sprint 4G LTE voice and data reception. The amplifier unit can be used with optional splitters and antennas to provide a very large coverage footprint up to 7,500 sq. ft. This smart, self-regulating booster is equipped with dynamic adaptive gain control to allow maximum performance for clear reception.

The Stealth Z1 72dB Signal Booster is the most powerful booster in the Z1 range. It is best suited to urban or suburban areas and areas where existing outside signal is strong. If existing outside signal is weak, you may wish to use the Smooth Talker X2 range.

The Z1 72 dB amplifier has LED level indicators to make installation quick, easy and effective. The LED console also has a manual control override. Signal gain is improved with automatic oscillation control and network overload protection, so that you have maximum gain and coverage.

This kit includes inside and outside antennas, amplifier, and power supply. The unit comes with sturdy long lasting cast aluminum housing.

Outside Antenna

The outside antenna is a wide band directional panel antenna suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. A directional antenna is stronger than an omnidirectional antenna and so can pick up outside signal from further away. It needs to be pointed in the direction of the nearest cell tower. The antenna has 18’ of cable attached. The antenna comes with an adjustable mounting bracket made of weather proof impact resistant plastic. It includes stainless steel screws and double sided tape to mount to walls or windows.

Inside antenna

The inside antenna is a wide-band omni directional antenna for use with the amplifier unit. The “blade” style antenna is mounted directly to the inside antenna connector of the booster. Omni-directional antennas broadcast and receive signals from all sides. They are designed for central locations with 360º coverage.

Cable

The MCT-Female amplifier unit comes with MCT-Female connectors and 200 series cable for maximum performance. The cable lengths included are 18FT (attached to outside antenna) + 2x30FT.

How it works

how a cell phone booster works
1 - Outdoor antenna

The outdoor antenna receives and transmits signal to nearby cellphone towers. Outdoor antennas can be either directional or omni-directional.

2 - Cellular amplifier

The amplifier (or "repeater") boosts the signal coming to and from and going to the cell phone tower. The "gain" of the amplifier describes how strong the amplification is - you'll see that word scattered across our product pages.

3 - Indoor antenna

The indoor antenna rebroadcasts the signal inside the building. Some kits have more than one indoor antenna to help distribute the signal.

Coverage

The coverage area you can expect from any signal booster kit depends on the signal strength outside the building.

Outdoor Signal Estimated coverage area
Strong outdoor signal (5 bars) up to 7,500 sq. ft. coverage
Medium outdoor signal (3-4 bars) up to 5,000 sq. ft. coverage
Weak outdoor signal (1-2 bars) up to 3,000 sq. ft. coverage
