The zBoost ZB560SL REACH Premium Dual Band Signal Booster Kit is an upgrade to the standard ZB545 and includes a more powerful high-gain directional outside antenna. With the more powerful antenna and a lower loss cable, the ZB560SL amplifier receives a significantly stronger signal which results in a coverage area of up to 5000 sq ft.
The ZB560SL is a dual-band signal booster system and will boost the 2G and 3G cell phone signals for most major carriers in the United States including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Alltel, and US Cellular. It does not support Clearwire. Because the directional antenna needs to be aimed at a carrier's tower, it may not be possible to support multiple carriers with this kit unless their towers are in the same general direction.
Many variables impact the total coverage area of a signal booster system. The following are estimates only and may not be accurate in any individual situation.
- If you have an existing strong 5-bar outside signal, you may get up to 3,500 sq ft of coverage inside*
- If you have an existing 3 to 4-bar (-90 dB) outside signal, you may get up to 2,500 sq ft of coverage inside*
- If you have an existing 1 to 2-bar (-100 dB) outside signal, you may get up to 250 sq ft of coverage inside*
The ZB560SL performs best when covering a single floor and may not work well in multi-story homes and offices. If you have multiple floors, you'll need a signal booster kit with a directional inside antenna, such as the Wilson DB Pro Yagi kit.
All carriers that use the standard dual band frequencies (800 MHz and 1900 MHz) for voice and 3G data, including:
- AT&T 2G/3G/4G HSPA+ (shows as 4G on your phone)
- Verizon 2G/3G
- Sprint 2G/3G
- US Cellular 2G/3G
- Alltel 2G/3G
- T-Mobile 2G/3G
- Major Canadian Carriers 2G/3G
- All other carriers using 800 MHz and 1900 MHz
- Will not boost 4G LTE for any carrier

The zBoost ZB560SL includes everything needed for a typical installation. To start, decide where you plan to mount the outside antenna while keeping in mind that you need at least 15 feet of vertical separation between the outside antenna and the inside base unit. You should mount the external antenna on a vertical pole high up on the roof, in the location where you receive the best outside signal. The included outside antenna bracket should be mounted to a pole, like a TV antenna mast.
Once you've found the location with the best signal available, mount the outside antenna using the included antenna bracket. Avoid any permanent mounting at this point, in case you need to relocate the antenna later. Next, attach the included cable to the end of the antenna and run it into your home or office, either through an open vent or by drilling a hole into the house.
Next, you'll need to determine where to locate the inside base unit, which includes the amplifier and inside antenna. Ideally, you want it located in the center of the area where you want the boosted signal. You also want to keep it away from large metal objects or wiring that could interfere with the signal. Run the coax cable from the outside antenna to this location and then attach it to the amplifier. Attach the inside antenna to the amplifier unit and then plug in the AC power supply. After a few seconds, you should see a green light indicating that the amplifier is working properly. If you see a red light, or if it's alternating green and red, check the included manual for troubleshooting steps. It's likely that your inside and outside antennas are too close together which results in feedback causing the amplifier to shut down.
Directional antennas must be aimed for best results. When aiming and when mounting the antenna, make sure that it is parallel with the ground, do not aim it up at the sky or down at the ground. Start with the antenna high on the roof pointed in one direction. Turn on the system and have a person inside stand 3 ft from the inside antenna and take a signal reading with their phone in field test mode. Rotate the yagi antenna 45 degrees and then pause for 30 to 60 seconds. After the pause, the person inside should take another signal reading, and then you can repeat the process. Each time your partner checks the signal strength, also check to make sure there aren't any warning lights on the amplifier. After you've gone all the way around, mount the antenna facing in the direction with the strongest signal. If possible, also mount the antenna on that side of the home or office so that it's pointing away from the building and not over the building.
