I have a pair of this 2.4GHz Wireless Outdoor Patio Speakers 6.5" my question is can i add another pair of this and play it at the same time for louder result? pls advice thanks
1 Answers
HHi Guillermo, You absolutely can add a second pair for more output and coverage. Each pair has its own internal amplifier so you are doubling your power. Also, the second pair will sync up with the single transmitter from the first pair so both pairs will see the same signal at the same time. There's no need to find a second output from your source, and you will have a second transmitter that can be saved as a backup. TL/MA #1353

May 12, 2012
i am looking for a pair of speakers to put on my porch... there are no electric plugs , so i want to put a pair up that are wireless no wires anywhere, except to run the transmitter indoors.and can i transmit off a stereo in my house??
1 Answers
Hi Carol: These speakers are wireless to a point. The audio signal is transmitted from the stereo in the house by the wireless transmitter that has to be connected to your Receiver/Amplifier by a pre-amplified signal with one of the included cables. The audio signal is then transmitted wireless to the Main patio speaker which has both the Power Amplifier and Wireless Receiver built into Speaker enclosure. Unfortunately this has to have a power cord that would have to be plugged in to deliver power to the internal Receiver and Amplifier. The second speaker then has to be connected by a speaker cable to provide a stereo pair. Only the audio signal between the Transmitter and Receiver are wireless. We do have complete line of speakers that can be wired from the source without worrying about a power plug. But there is that wire thing going on still. I hope that answers your question. TL TL

how are theses powered? how do they get the signal? what is the range of the signal from the computer?
1 Answers
Hi Michael: 1) How are they powered? There is an AC power cord that is connected to the Master Speaker then to a AC wall outlet. This provides the 110 volts to the internal Amplifier of the Master Speaker. 2) How do they get the signal? There is a 2.4 GHz Wireless Transmitter supplied with the unit that connects to the Headphone/Audio Jack on your computer. Then sends the wireless audio signal to the Master Speaker with the built in 2.4 GHz Wireless Receiver. The second speaker or Satellite speaker is then hard wired to the Master Speaker with the 30 foot speaker cable that is supplied with the kit. 3) The Range of the Wireless Transmission is up to 300 feet from the 2.4 GHz Transmitter to the Master Speaker. Note: These speakers are still under development with a scheduled release before the Spring Thaw of 2012 TL

Thanks you for your answer to me question about the pulsing/flashing blue light on the front of the powered speaker. It made sense that it might be searching/pairing with the wireless transmitter but they are still not working. The red light in on on the front of the wireless transmitter and I've tried pushing the channel button to no avail. Is it possible that the wireless transmitter is no longer working. It is set up outside on my patio.
1 Answers
Hi Curtis: I am sorry you are still having issues, This a legacy product for us where we had run out of replacement transmitter more than two years ago. One of the problems we had with the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi speakers was compatibility with existing Wi-Fi in the home. Have you added or strengthened your current WiFi system? Do you have the ability to move the Transmitter closer to the Receiver to see if they might sync up?Typically you can move the egg just by increasing the audio cable between the Transmitter Egg and the Pre amp connection.

Can I use these speakers on a sonos system?
1 Answers
HI Phillip: These speaker have been discontinued. You could have used a SONOS Connect to drive them but Bluetooth versions have replaced all our wireless speakers. But Bluetooth will not work with the SONOS and has limitations on how many speakers you can connect. We usually recommend adding one of our Power amplifiers to the SONOS Connect than driving as many speakers as you want. But it is not wireless to your speakers only from your source to the SONOS Connect. TL/4349

If I add a 2nd pair, receiving from the same transmitter, can I adjust the volume of the 2nd set independently of the 1st pair?
1 Answers
Hi Eric: The advantage of Wi-Fi versus Bluetooth is that you can connect multiple speakers using a second or third Wi-Fi Receiver with a single WiFi Transmitter. Where as Bluetooth is limited to a single connection between your Bluetooth enabled device (with built in Transmitter) like your Smartphone. Even thought you can connect the second pair of Speakers by a WiFi Receiver you will not be able to control it separately from the first Transmitter/Receiver combo. Sorry about that TL/4031

1. Shut off the wireless internet router for testing purposes to make sure nothing is interfering. 2. Whatever the source may be (MP3 player, CD player, computer, etc) – the volume should be turned up to max level. 3. When everything is plugged in and powered on, turn the wireless speakers off using the on/off button on the remote. 4. Next, press the channel button on the transmitter once. 5. Now, turn the rocks on using the on/off button on the remote. 6. The speakers should start producing sound now. 7. Make sure that the volume is turned up using the volume button on the remote.

I would like to mount these outside of my wife's store. Can I run them from computer( Pandora, I Heart etc.?). Also can I run an other set in another room ? Can I have independent volume control? Can I run them on an a/c adapter ( no batteries) ? Thank YOU!
1 Answers
Hi Floyd, You can run up to 3 pairs off a single transmitter, which can be used with any source that uses 3.5mm (headphone jack) or RCA (red/white). You are limited to the same volume on all pairs running from same source/transmitter. The transmitter runs of 2.4ghz frequency, so if you have wifi internet nearby, that can interfere. These cannot run off battery, but the WR150 can. We also have Bluetooth versions of these speakers. Let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks! BM 2710

I already own one set of these speakers and would like to purchase another (4 speakers in total) can 2 sets be integrated to the Sonos Connect? I reached out to sonos and this was their reply: "Thank you for contacting Sonos Customer Care. I've been looking over the specs for those speakers and from the look of it one Connect would be able to drive one pair of speakers only. The connect only has a single analog output and it looks like these speakers only do analog audio in. The only thing I am unsure about is whether these two sets of speakers can be integrated together to one wireless transmitter. It does not appear so, I assume they would advertise this, but it may be worth asking the manufacture just in case as this would save you needing a second connect. "

Hi Deirdre, As the Sonos customer rep said, the Sonos connect would not power 2 pairs of the WPA-650. If you were to purchase another pair, you would be able to use one transmitter on 2 pairs of speakers. CS 2565

You still need to use the Transmitter from either the computer through the headphone jack or any device you have access to a headphone (analog output).

Hi Gary: Not all Receivers have a Pre- Amplified output that you will need to connect to the input of the WPA-650 Wireless Transmitter. You can use other sources to drive your WPA-650 like a iPod, iPhone or Laptop computer. Anything that has a headphone jack. You might also want to contact Denon to see if your Receiver features a output that is always active like a Tape loop.

1 Answers
Hi Gary, Whether you are using your Sirius boom box or connecting directly to your iPod, you need a headphone output jack to connect to the transmitter that comes with both pairs of wireless speakers. You could connect one transmitter to your Sirius boom box and the second transmitter to your iPad or MacPro which would have connectivity to the internet plus have your iTunes library. They cannot transmit at the same time but a single transmitter would control both pairs of patio speakers. You would need to run power to the main speaker of each pair (the one that has the wireless receiver and amplifier built in) and connect the second speaker of each pair to the main speaker with the supplied speaker wire. The 3.5mm cable to RCA is supplied with each pair as well. TL/MA 1718

Tim Elenbaas tim@ebbertco.com 714-920-5487 cell

Hi Tim, Both the WR800 and WPA650 wireless outdoor speakers use a common transmitter. The single transmitter can connect all three pairs for your application; however, you may have to experiment with the best placement for the transmitter. The WPA650 and WR800 have an internal amplifier and receiver built into the master and a speaker wire that connects to the second satellite speaker. Both need to be connected to a power source using the supplied power supply. The second satellite speaker is connected by speaker wire (rated for direct burial for the WR800s). There is also a remote control to turn the rock and patio speakers on/off and to control volume. Both speakers include an on/off switch on the master speaker (on the bottom of the WR800 and the back of the WPA650). TL/MA #1706

Hi Daphne, If your Bose system has an audio output then you can use it as a source for your wireless speakers. The transmitter accepts either an RCA (red and white) or a mini (3.5mm which is also referred to as a headphone jack). Both the cables are included with the speaker set. CL/MA 1310

Curtis
from Overland Park, KS asked:
August 19, 2012
I have a couple questions. 1) I would like to run a total of 4 speakers from the same transmitter to my outdoor patio and deck. Is this possible and if so what speakers do I purchase to be able to do this? How do I get them to all be on the same channel together? 2) How long is the power cable for the main speaker? Can it be left plugged in thoughout the year if it is not left in a completely exposed area? Thank you
1 Answers
Hi Curtis, 1) Our WR800, Wireless Rock Speakers and our WPA-650 Patio Speakers share the same Transmitter and Wireless Receiver design. You could power two pair of Rocks or two pair of the Patio Speakers or a combination of one pair of Rocks and one pair of Patio Speakers. They will both sink up when used with a single transmitter. 2) The power cord for the two main speakers that will need to be plugged in (one for each pair) is 3 feet from the speaker to the wall wart and a little over 4 and a half feet to the power plug. As long as you keep them protected from the direct elements you can leave them out all year. There is also a speaker wire that has to be run from the main speaker (that has the receiver and power amp built in) to the satellite speaker (comes with 30 feet). That would be the case for both pair of speakers. TL 1244

Are these speakers and grills paintable, so they can blend in with the color of the house?
1 Answers
Hi Sherry: Yes you can paint the WPA-6560 speakers to match your surroundings. You will most likely want to purchase the white finish to start with versus the black. The Grills are removable; recommend painting them with a spray paint. Then create a paint shield to cover the front baffle where the tweeter, Woofer, front port and Power on LED light is located (only on the master speaker). Thank you for considering OSD Branded products. TL

can this be used with a bose radio
1 Answers
Hi Pat: Yes the WPA-650 would work fine with the BOSE radio. You would use the Aux cable (3.5mm to 3.5mm) to connect from the headphone jack located on the back of the BOSE radio to the input of the Wireless Transmitter. The Patio Speakers have a remote control to adjust the volume levels of the speakers. Good Luck, TL

Hans
from SF, CA asked:
July 6, 2012
Does the remote control truly power these units on? I have another set of wireless speakers (different mfr) and the remote turns the units into standby, and back on. But if my speakers are really powered off, the remote cannot power them up. In other words, if I would mount these OSD speaker in a place I can't reach them, and have them plugged in there, will the remote turn them off and on without me having o reach up and press some other button?
1 Answers
Hi Hans: The wireless remote control supplied with the WPA650 only puts the speaker in stand-by mode similar to your other speakers. You can also control the volume up or down. There is a power switch on the back of the main speaker which must be manually pressed to turn the speaker on or off. There is a Blue power on LED light located on the front of the speaker that only shuts off when the power switch is manually turned off. It stays lit with the switch is in the on position even if you use the remote to place the speaker in stand-by mode. So in order to truly shut the speaker off or on you would need access to the switch on the back of the main speaker. TL

Bill Thomas
from Hot Springs, AR asked:
July 5, 2012
Is the volume on these independent of the source. For instance, if I hook these up to a TV, do I have to have two remotes handy to adjust the volume? Or can I set them and forget them and just use the TV volume? Thanks.
2 Answers
Hi Bill, If the TV is your audio source, that is sending the audio signal to the speaker without volume information, so you would control the speakers volume with the remote it comes with. CL
Customer Service - Q&A
on July 6, 2012
Hi Bill, The volume to the wireless patio speakers is controlled mainly by the remote control. You can vary the volume with the TV remote as well. When you press off on the remote, it puts the speakers in standby mode until you press the on/off button again. The volume will be at the same level as when you turned it to standby mode. In order to turn the patio speakers physically off and on, you would need to use the manual on/off switch on the back of the main speaker itself. When it comes back on with the manual switch, the volume needs to be turned back up with the remote. Essentially, you will use a combination of both remotes. TL/MA

July 4, 2012
It looks like the speaker posts are exposed to the weather. Are these speakers truly weatherproof?
1 Answers
HI Kevin, These speakers are weather resistant but are not meant to be exposed directly to the elements. We usually recommend using them under an eave or covered patio. Since they’re fairly portable, we also recommend bringing them into the house during the off season or when inclement weather is forecast. Most of our other patio speakers feature similar speaker terminals. TL/MA

How long is the AC power cord?
1 Answers
Hi SCott: The Power Cord which also features the Power Supply (called a wall wart) is roughly 8 feet in length. Checkout the WR800 which features an image with the Power supply that goes to the main rock just like the it does to the main Patio speaker. It can be extended from the two prong plug. TL

How loud are they? How do they compare to the wr800 in sound?
2 Answers
Hi Jorge, The WR800s are our most powerful wireless speakers and will give you higher volume.Both the rock speakers include an 8" polypropylene woofer. The patio style speakers have 6.5" woofers. Both are rated at 120 Watts Peak. CL/MA

Hi Jorge, The WPA-650 wireless patio speakers are very similar to the WR-800 wireless rocks; in fact, they share the same internal amplifier, external power supply and wireless transformer. The WR-800 has a little more bass with the 8" internal driver but the WPA-650 is not far behind. We have both a WR-800 and WPA-650 playing off a single transmitter in our warehouse, and they have no problem filling our 45K foot facility (and the warehouse crew has no complaints). TL/MA

Great speakers and easy to set up, but it will interfere (as stated in previous reviews) with wireless internet connection. Works fine with a MP3 player, or phone with data connection.

Great outdoor sound
I just set these up without mounting them to check out the functionality with the hardware from the previous rock speakers with similar wireless system. They work great with the wireless system of the rock speakers. I plan to mount them in the patio and place the rock speakers at the other end of the pool for a "big sound"! These are nice sounding speakers. Plenty of volume without distortion. Even my neighbors will enjoy (well! maybe not! ).

Just what I wanted
Was going back and forth trying to decide between these and Bluetooth speakers. Ultimately, I'm happy I went with the 2.4 wireless technology for the longer range it provides. These work as advertised. No major impact/interference from my wireless network on the same frequency. Occasionally, I have to push the button to change the channel on the wireless adapter and that solves any minor interference issue. The wireless adapter is connected to my receiver via Zone 2 output inside the house approximately 35 feet from the speakers. I can run the receiver on Zone 2 if I just want sound on the patio, or I can run both zones if I'm having a party and want sound inside and outside. On occasion, I have plugged the wireless receiver directly into my iPad, and it works well, too. I have had these for about 6 weeks now and have listened to them frequently. They will play loud, but I tend to keep the volume lower to not bother my neighbors. These are really for background music while relaxing on the patio with my family. Sound is very good and bass response is acceptable for this type and size of speaker. I'm in Southern California, so I'm not worried about extreme weather changes affecting these.

Nice solution for my needs
I needed speakers for my outdoor patio area but had no ability to run speaker wire from indoors to the location. These speakers provide nice full-range frequency response and the wireless transmitter works very well from its location indoors without any interference issues. The mounts are sturdy and provide nice flexibility in adjusting the speaker angle and orientation. The only reason I didn't give a 5-start rating was the awkward power brick. The cord from the A/C plug to the brick is too short for any reasonable mounting of the speakers on a wall. I had to mount an extension cord to the desired location, leaving a bundle of cable and the brick itself to be mounted behind the main powered speaker. It's a minor inconvenience, but a more modular or flexible power supply design would make installation much cleaner.

Happy with purchase
The speakers are great! There built well, look clean and sound good. We have a 1920's bungalow so we tucked them up under our eaves, one at my BBQ area and one in the patio area. We wanted to have sound in our entire back yard and these speakers do just that with out having to blast them. The controller does work every where in my back yard, even around walls. It was easy to install, would have given this product five stars but the wireless transmission does cut out, and raised havoc with my wireless printer, and some other wireless devices. I unplugged it from my computer and run the speakers off of my phone. Computer problems went away. I do listen to it a lot like all day everyday on the weekends, so the interference is not all the time nor so much so that it is a problem. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great product for the price your paying. O yeah and I received them in three days with standard shipping!! Thanks!!!! Love them!

These Speakers Sound Great on my Porch
Having researched wireless speakers, I decided on these. The order process was easy and they arrived within the promised timeframe. All parts are of a high quality and the instructions were concise - even a little too concise when it came to wiring to existing stereo equipment, but I am a relative novice and others might not find this to be the case. Overall sound quality is good - a little light on bass, but that is at least partially a factor of the outdoor environment vs. my indoor speakers. From a design standpoint, I wish the transformer could be plugged directly into a 120V power outlet with a single cord to the speakers. Instead, it is between two cords and, since I mounted my speakers high up on the wall, it had to be affixed to the wall midway up. Not very pleasing appearance, but for the fact that I camouflaged it with a large plant.
