Will these speakers piar with BOSE soundtouch 10 with Bluetooth?
1 Answers
Hi Ken: I do not believe the BOSE system transmits a signal but is setup only to receive from other Bluetooth enabled devices like tablets or smartphones. Having said that I believe there are new smartphones (like the new Samsung Galaxy 8). This was from an on-line question: The Galaxy S8 has quite a few new and interesting features that users may or may not know about, but arguably one of the most useful is the ability to connect your new handset to two different Bluetooth devices at once. The process of setting up two Bluetooth devices on the Galaxy S8 is actually extremely straightforward. Simply pair the first unit you’re using, then go to pair the second one, and the phone will ask if you want to enable “Dual Audio”. I’m not entirely sure why Samsung decided to include this as a toggle-able switch, but you can turn it on or off depending on whether or not you want to have the functionality available. We tested the dual Bluetooth functionality on over-the-ear headphones, in-ear headphones, and Bluetooth speakers, and came away quite impressed with what this phone can do. When you enable the functionality on the handset it warns you that one device may be slightly quieter than the other one, but we were hard pressed to find much of a difference. We listened to the right and left earcups of the same pair of headphones that were separately connected, and while there was a difference in audio gain between the two, it was extremely minimal. If you’re player 2 in this situation, you won’t need to worry about getting a sub-par experience. This is the one I heard about, not sure who else offers this feature but I am sure it will just be a matter of time before others have the feature. Good luck: TL/4576

Daniella
from Bronx, ny asked:
July 12, 2017
Simple question, is it wireless or does it need to be plugged in? Im looking for completely wireless stone speakers.
1 Answers
HI Daniella: These speakers are a stereo pair of rocks that feature a master rock which has an internal Bluetooth Receiver and two channel stereo amplifier with one channel from the amp powering the single internal 2 way coaxial speaker. The second channel is used to power the second or satellite speaker which needs atwo conductor speaker wire to connect the master and satellite speaker. The Bluetooth and Power amplifier in the Master speaker need power from an external power Supply that is plugged into a AC outlet. I have not seen a outdoor speaker like this that has a Solar panel built in to supply your power. And you would still need connect the second speaker. So, no this is not 100% wireless only your connection between your Bluetooth enabled device and the master speaker . Sorry about that. TL/4467

we want to get wireless speakers that can be used with our tv cable service, we like the rock ones .. any suggestions
1 Answers
Hi Bill: We used to have 2.4 GHz wireless rocks before Bluetooth took over. The 2.4 GHz featured a Transmitter that could be plugged into your TV output then would transmit a wireless signal to the master speaker which featured the Wireless Receiver and 2 channel stereo amplifier and a connection to wire a satellite speaker so you could have right and left stereo separation. The early wireless had issue with many home wireless networks so that was a problem. The good thing was you could have a single transmitter send signal to multiple Wireless Receivers so you could have multiple pairs of speakers. Bluetooth is limited to the output of the internal amplifier after the Bluetooth Receiver (typically 2 channel only). So in most cases you are limited to one pair of speakers. We do have a wireless kit that was created to power surround speakers. It features a 2.4 GHz transmitter and a 2.4 GHz Receiver with a built in 25 watt stereo amplifier. You would have to find a dry spot where you can plug into power.then run speaker wire to the two rock speakers. The Transmitter would connect to the low level speaker output on your TV.. The Amp/Receiver has a volume knob and also a sub output. Checkout the WRSK-250. TL/4383

May 15, 2017
I see now that it must be plugged in, my question is only one speaker has to plugged in and the other is paired and don't need to be plugged in or do they both need to be plugged in ?
1 Answers
Hi Debra: One speaker we call the master (the heavier of the two) has a connection for a external Power Supply which at one end is plugged into an AC outlet and the other connects directly to the Master speaker. This speaker needs power for both the Internal Bluetooth Receiver and stereo power amplifier. There is also an output on the Master Speaker for a speaker wire that needs to run between the Master and Satellite Speaker (the lighter of the two speakers). It is also included in the kit along with the Power supply. The wireless connection is between your Bluetooth enabled device (Smartphone or Tablet) and the Master Speaker where you pair up between the two. Good Luck TL/4366

Dave
from Valencia, California asked:
February 9, 2016
Can the speakers be linked together, if I wanted to have more than two?
1 Answers
Hi Dave: Unfortunately you are limited to a single connection to the Bluetooth Receiver built into the main speaker. The main speaker has the stereo amplifier built in as well. The second or satellite speaker has to be hardwired directly to the Main or Sync speaker so you can have stereo right and left output. Only the signal between your Bluetooth enabled device and the sync speaker are wireless. We are working on a new technology where where the receiver may have a built in Bluetooth repeater to set up a second pair of speakers but it is still in the testing stage. I hope that helps answer your question TL/3699

Doug Posey, DVM
from Texas asked:
November 4, 2016
Is only one speaker Bluetooth enabled, and the other one is a "slave" and must be hardwired to the other speaker, or can you be totally wireless if running off of batteries ? Thanks, Doug Posey
1 Answers
Hi Doug: You will still need the second speaker to have true stereo sound whether you use batteries or AC power. You could purchase a BTR800TT which is a single Dual Voice Coil Rock speaker that features a summed Mono Stereo signal with no external slave speaker. It is totally wireless except you have to supply power with the external power supply plugged into an AC outlet. It does play a full range signal with both right and left channels combined Sorry about that. TL/4108

How long is the wire from the power supply box to the first speaker?
1 Answers
Hi Phil: On the BTR-150 The power Supply block plugs directly into your AC outlet; it has a power cord that is 25 feet long that you plug into master speaker. The speaker wire which is terminated at both ends(with an RCA connector) is just under 13 feet long. We recommend placing the speakers 8 to 12 feet apart for proper stereo separation. TL/3900

Bob
from Tucson, AZ asked:
April 20, 2016
I have a 3-4year old audio receiver that is hardwired to the 2 speakers mounted over a deck. The receiver is blue tooth enabled and works well while sending music to it via blue tooth cell phone. My question is, will there be a problem running the wireless Bluetooth rock speakers as an extra pair of speakers at the back of the yard? Distance about 40-50 feet from the receiver that is in the house behind the wall facing the back yard where the wireless speakers will be placed. Will the wireless speakers sync well enough to blend in with the hardwired speakers, ie no delay in the sound to the wireless speakers?
1 Answers
HI Bob: The way Bluetooth works with our Bluetooth speakers it syncs up with a Bluetooth enabled device. Your device will only sync up with one receiver at a time so it would sync up with either the Bluetooth enabled Receiver you have or the BTR-150 but not both at the same time. The only solution is to hard wire a pair of Rock speakers to your Bluetooth enabled Receiver which I am assuming has the ability to drive a couple pair of speakers. Most of our Bluetooth Rock and patio speakers work the same way where you have main/sync speaker that has the built in Bluetooth Receiver and stereo power amplifier. The second or satellite speaker is hardwired from the Main/sync speaker with the speaker wire that is included in the kit. Note: You will also have to run AC power to the main/sync speaker to power both the Bluetooth Receiver and Stereo amplifier. The only true wireless signal is between the Bluetooth enabled device and the Main/sync speaker. So if you are able to hard wire another pair of speakers to your existing Receiver you will have many more choices of either rock, patio or omni speakers. And you will be able to connect more than a pair to your Bluetooth enabled Receiver. I hope that helps TL/3826

Are these speakers compatible with Sonos indoor speakers?
1 Answers
Hi Mike: I do not believe they are compatible with the SONOS system. These are Bluetooth wireless that have Bluetooth Receiver built in. It can only be controlled by a Bluetooth enabled device like a smartphone or tablet. The SONOS has its own proprietary Wi-fi connection where you set up a mesh network among all the SONOS devices that you utilize throughout your house. The more devices you add the stronger the network but no interface with Bluetooth. You can add the BTR-150 to your outdoors but it would be an independent system that you would control with your Bluetooth enabled device which can access or duplicate many of the apps like Pandora or Internet Radio stations that are part of the SONOS app as well. SONOS does not have outdoor speaker but people use many of our outdoor speakers with the combination of the SONOS Connect and our OSD Power Amplifiers. In this application you can drive more than a single pair of speakers. Our speakers also work well with the SONOS Connect Amplifier (up to two pairs can be connected to the Connect Amplifier). Also by adding the SONOS connect in this way it becomes part of the system and functions as another zone. And you have complete access to the SONOS network including the SONOS app and access to your network libraries. I hope that answered your question... TL/3810

Can you leave them on all the time?
1 Answers
Hi Lorenz: Yes you can leave them on all the time. You can also unplug the Power Supply if there is better access to that versus the switch at the bottom of the Master Speaker. You might want to unplug them especially if your are not going to be using them for a longer period of time. When you plug them back in they will fire up right away. Regards TL/3799

Q. I am interested in purchasing this item for my back yard and place them about 150 feet from the house under some trees in a shaded area Would this work and how about transmitting sound from the house to these speakers? what would I require for all this to work?
1 Answers
Hello Conrad, The Bluetooth range varies depending on your device and whether it's an unobstructed path between your device and the speakers. 150ft should be doable if it is an unobstructed path. You can run these speakers using most smartphones and tablets.

June 14, 2015
in 2012 we purchased the WR150 2.4Ghz Wireless Indoor Outdoor Speakers Pair with Remote Control sku # OSD-WR-150-Pair-Brown. We want to expand the sound by adding more speakers. Will these work through the same transmitter we have that came with the first set or will our old speakers route through the transmitter that comes with the BTR-150 wireless bluetooth pair?
1 Answers
Hello Aimee, These run off an entirely different technology than the WR series did. The WR series ran off 2.4Ghz frequency whereas the BTR series runs off Bluetooth, so unfortunately the answer is no. We may still have some WR-150 left over however. If you are interested, give us a call!

Hello Jane, The Bluetooth Rock Speakers are weather-resistant and are safe to leave outside. If you want to bring them in or cover them up during harsher weather when you wouldn't be playing them, you can as a precautionary measure, but you don't need to.

Hi Gene, These speakers need to be powered by the power supply that is packaged with them. I'm not aware of any speakers that run off 12v. If you have a power outlet, you can run an extension chord to the power supply that runs these speakers.

Great Sound
Great sound. Only annoying part is that neither the red or green lights (indicating the unit is on via power cord or battery do not light up.)Also my unit does not work via battery power (I had new batteries). Power cord works, but I have to stretch it across my patio to where the speakers are placed. I was hoping wireless meant no power cord needed, either. However the sound is great and returning items is always a hassle, so I'm keeping it. Great sound and great connectivity to Bluetooth device, so, were it not for the battery problem and the power lights that don't go on. it's a great purchase.The canyon color rock style is a nice design feature. It looks good.

So glad I found these
My husband wanted outdoor bluetooth speakers that looked like rocks. After researching and looking at what seemed like hundreds of them, I am so glad I found these. Others were either way too over priced or seemed too cheap. I think these were perfect in cost and exactly what we were looking for. We keep them outside in the backyard, we have had them for a couple weeks now. The only time the music skips slightly is when there are clouds rolling in but I think that's due to the bluetooth and really has nothing to do with the speakers. They look good and we have received a lot of compliments on them. Also. shipping was fast! Thanks OSD!

Works Like A Champ (1 Year After Purchase)
These are the best wireless speakers I have purchased to date. The previous version was similar using a transmitter hooked up to my receiver. That worked well but having Bluetooth capabilities is far superior. Range insofar as my phone from the main speaker is not much more than 20 feet (30 if the distance is unimpeded) which is fine from my perspective. Volume is controlled from my smartphone and can crank very high with no loss in clarity or crispness. I just wish I could find a pair of waterproof pouches to cover them with when not in use. Highly recommended product.

Good sound, OK bluetooth
The sound quality on these speakers is good, but if you're looking for the best, look elsewhere. They're perfect for what I need, which is a small outdoor patio. I do have them out in the rain, and they still work fine, so they are indeed water resistant. The bluetooth range on these is about 40 feet unobstructed; less than what is shown in the specs. Again not an issue for me, but something to keep in mind. What I do have an issue with is the Bluetooth chip that's used. First of all, the speakers identify themselves as "Bluetooth" when you are connecting to them. This is rather confusing if you use multiple bluetooth devices in your home. Second, if you leave range of the speakers and come back in range, you have to power them off and back on again to reconnect. If the bluetooth chip was any good, it would automatically reconnect. I'll be gutting mine and replacing the bluetooth chip soon. Lastly, the cable they came with was rather short and the tip broke within a week of use. I was able to replace the cable with a subwoofer cable I had lying around. You can use any RCA cable, but a subwoofer cable tends to be higher gauge and shielded better.
