Features & Specifications

Sleek, modern and attractive, the BTP-650 Wireless Bluetooth® Patio Speaker Pair is a fantastic set for your deck or patio. These indoor-outdoor speakers are designed for all weather conditions, and the set includes one main speaker and one pairing speaker. They're versatile enough to be used in stores, as part of your home entertainment package or near your pool. Powerful and ready for anything you can play, these speakers connect to any Bluetooth®-enabled device and include 25 feet of speaker wire.

Specifications

Product Installation

1) Determine the ideal location where the Patio Speakers are not exposed directly to the elements. Note: speakers typically should be placed between 8 to 12 feet apart for proper stereo separation.
2) The Master Patio Speaker needs to be located near an AC outlet where you can connect the Power Supply to the Master Speaker in order provide the electrical current needed for the Internal Stereo Power Amplifier and Bluetooth® Receiver.
3) The Pairing speaker must be connected to the Master Speaker with the 25-foot Speaker Cable that is supplied with the kit. The length of the speaker cable can be cut down for an exact fit but should not be extended beyond 30 feet.

Matt Siegel
from 32254 asked:
January 14, 2019
can these speakers be connected to a smart tv?
1 Answer
Hi Matt: Not all Smart TVs are created equal. You will need to check with the TV manufacturer. The BTO650 is Bluetooth 3.0 compatible with A2DP standard. The following is information I found online at https://www.lifewire.com/connect-bluetooth-headphones-to-tv-4125164. I do not think our standard Bluetooth kits are apt:X Low latency rated. And the info was written for Bluetooth Headphones, and it seems both the Smart TV and headphones had to share the apt:X and also the low latency for it to be effective. They also mention newer TVs have adjustable latency. It seems Streaming contact has a video delay but unless you can adjust the latency I am not sure how effective the PTP650 would be for your application: So if the following information helps: Resolve Bluetooth Audio/Video Sync One legitimate concern about using Bluetooth wireless headphones with video content is the potential for delayed audio. You’ll recognize it when you hear everything a split second after it happens on the screen. If you have a more modern television, you can check for a built-in fix. Look for an "audio delay/sync" setting (or something similarly named) under the sound options in the TV's system menu. If present, the adjustment should be shown as either a slider or a box with values typically set in milliseconds. Sometimes you might see a list of all the separate inputs/outputs that can be adjusted. Bringing that slider/number down should help minimize the delay so that the audio syncs with the video. In rare instances, you'll experience video instead of audio delay. This phenomenon occurs when you're streaming high-definition content where the extra moment it takes for the video to appear (sometimes due to buffering) on the screen causes it to lag behind the sound. In this case, adjust the sound settings to increase the audio delay, slowing it down in order for it to sync up with the video. Make small adjustments and test until you find the perfect match. For best results, make sure that your smart television has been updated with the latest firmware because outdated firmware affects performance. If you are still encountering audio/video sync problems, check to see if any of your TV’s sound settings are not currently set to "standard." Enabling various sound modes (e.g. virtual, 3D audio, surround, PCM, etc.) can unintentionally inject a delay. If you’re streaming video through an app or separate device (e.g. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PS4, Blu-ray player, stereo receiver/amplifier), double-check the physical connections as well as the audio settings on each. Older electronics may lack these audio adjustment settings. Your best bet for keeping the audio synced with video is by choosing hardware that supports Bluetooth Low Latency. Low Latency is Key Look for Bluetooth aptX with Low Latency — this standard must be on both the headphones and the transmitter in order to work. Low-latency Bluetooth incurs a delay no greater than 40 milliseconds, which creates suitable synchronization between what is seen and heard. For reference, typical Bluetooth wireless headphones exhibit audio delays ranging from 80 ms up to 250 ms. Even at 80 ms, human brains perceive audio delayed behind the video. Good luck TL/5373

Steve Azzam
from New jersey asked:
December 6, 2018
could they be hard wired to a receiver if desired, like a regular non wireless speakers.
1 Answer
Hi SSteve: The satellite speaker is a passive speaker that is hard-wired from the master Speaker of the BTP650. But there is no external connection to the master speaker, it has the Bluetooth Receiver, and stereo power amp built internally. There is no access to the internal drivers of the master speaker. We do have AP650 in both white or black finish that is a stereo pair identical to the satellite speaker of the BTP Bluetooth kit. TL/5321

Melanie
from North carolina asked:
September 25, 2018
If you buy 2x pairs (4 total speakers), when you connect via bluetooth will all 4 play? Or only 1 pair?
1 Answer
Hi Melanie: Current technology limits the connection of only one pair of speakers at a time. Some of the latest Android Smartphones will connect to multiple Bluetooth Receivers which will allow you to connect to the two pairs of BTP650. There is the talk of new Bluetooth Chip that will connect to various Bluetooth Receivers (up to 80 units at a time). But this will not be available to 2019. Note: Android phones also allow you to name your Bluetooth devices. Check out our BOM4.1 Bluetooth Subwoofer/Satellite system. It features a 100-watt amplifier for the 8-inch subwoofer that also features a Bluetooth Receiver built-in plus four additional 60 Watt channels so you can connect almost any two pairs of passive speakers (the AP650 is the identical speaker to the BTP650). It was created to address the need for more than the single stereo pair of all of our standard Bluetooth speakers. TL/5217

Speakers won't connect They are not connected to any device Happened over night Have power
2 Answers
Hi David: I am sorry you are having a problem, does the BTP650 show up on your Bluetooth Device when you search? Try turning it off for a half an hour (turn off the switch on the master and unplug the Power Supply. After 30 minutes plug the power supply back in and turn the switch back on. When you fire it back up if another device was in sync, it should give out an audible signal. If not, do another search with your device. The BTP650 should come up Bluetooth Speaker (I am sure you have that listed on your phone if you have had it working before). How did you know if the speaker was getting power? You may want to touch bases with customer service at Outdoor Speaker Depot. The unit carries a one year warranty. They will be able to help you further. TL/5157

Charles
from NJ asked:
June 26, 2018
can the volume be adjusted on each speaker so one is not as loud as the other ?
1 Answer
Hi Charles: We have had questions about increasing overall sound levels but never a question of controlling the volume level between the master and satellite speakers of the BTP650. At the time I found some different apps on my Smartphone that would increase the sound and also increase the actual Bass. But I never thought to look for a balance control as well. So I found a list of the top 10 best equalizer apps for Android (did not check for Apple). The first one that popped up was an app called 10Band Equalizer. It has a knob to control the balance which might work for you. It is a free app and has a 4.1 rating. Good luck TL/5078

June 15, 2018
I see these can be mounted horizontally. I also see the enclosure panel on the back is vertical, with a small opening at the bottom. If I do mount them horizontally, do I need to worry about rain getting into that opening?
1 Answer
Hi Brett: The opening on the back of the speaker is square and the plastic back cover can be turned 90 degrees so the opening is still at the bottom in the Horizontal position as well. So no problem. I just confirmed this on my pair of BTP525 (the 5.25" version) mounted on my back deck. The backplate works the same on both the BTP650 and the BTP525. TL/5057

Justin
from St.Louis, MO asked:
June 5, 2018
Can these speakers not only be hard wired, but used with Bluetooth as well?
1 Answer
Hi Justin: These are Bluetooth only there is no other input available. You are connecting with your Bluetooth device to the master speaker which has the Bluetooth Receiver and 2 channel amplifier built-in with one channel connected to the internal speaker. A second connection is for the passive satellite speaker which connected to the Master by a two conductor stereo wire. The amp is only meant to drive the two speakers with no other connection besides the Bluetooth. The Rocks, Frogs and Patio Speakers are all the same setup. We do have a new Bluetooth Sub with a 100-watt amplifier and four channel outputs (2 stereo pairs 60 watts per channel). You decide which two pairs of passive speakers. You could connect 2 pairs of AP650 (identical to the BTP650) or a single pair of AP650 and a pair of RS670 Rock speakers. Check out the model BOM4.1. TL/5035

Will
from Memphis, TN asked:
May 31, 2018
What is the diameter of the weather-proof power connector? I ordered these yesterday and am looking to install conduit for the power cord over the weekend; can I fit the power cord through a 1/2" conduit (0.62" ID)? Thanks.
1 Answer
Hi Will: The total length of the power cord is around 18 to 19 feet. At one end is a three prong AC plug and about 3.5' to the actual Waterproof IP67 Power Supply block. Then 15 or so feet to the connection with the pigtail that comes out of the back of the Master Speaker. This terminated with a connector at least a 1/2" in diameter and there is a Ferrite core about 6" in from the connector that appears closer to 3.4". So a 1/2" conduit might not work. I installed a BTR650 last Saturday which I can go measure just to make sure. TL/5015

Fred
from 27284 asked:
May 27, 2018
can I buy another slave speaker
1 Answer
Hi Fred: The BTP650 is a closed system limited to the Master and one satellite speaker. There are some newer smartphones which allow you to sync up with two different Bluetooth receivers. So you could have 2 pairs of the BTP650. Another option to consider especially if you have not purchased the BTP650 kit would be our BOM4.1 which is an Outdoor powered subwoofer with a 100-watt amplifier for the Internal sub and four 60 watts a channel hookups so you could connect either a pair of AP650 (the identical speaker to the PTP650 Satellite) or any other two pairs pair of passive speakers (2 pairs of Rock speakers or Garden speakers etc.). Or mix and match say a pair of patio speakers and a pair of Rock Speakers it would all depend on your application. Good luck TL/5009

Anil
from TX asked:
May 24, 2018
Hello There, Can these be connected to an amp? or they work only via Bluetooth? Regards, Anil
1 Answer
Hi Anil: The BTP650 are limited to the master speaker and satellite playing right and left channel stereo. Its only source is from the internal Bluetooth Receiver and Stereo Amplifier. One channel is connected to the internal speaker and the other is hardwired to the satellite speaker with a 2 conductor speaker wire (+/-). So it is a closed system. We do sell the same speaker as a passive stereo pair the AP650. And we now have a couple of amplifier s featuring Bluetooth as one of the source options. Both amps have the ability to power 2 pairs of 8-ohm stereo speakers. The XWB50 is an in-wall version that features Bluetooth and one other Auxillary input and can play up to two pairs of 8-ohm speakers. The second is the new NERO which is an integrated Power Amplifier which features Bluetooth, Aux, RCA and Digital Optical inputs. The XWB50 is best for custom applications used to drive In-wall and In-Ceiling speakers. The NERO has more flexibility being a stand-alone unit that also features a variable sub out tied to the master volume control. Check them out ass well as the BOM5.1 outdoor powered subwoofer with a four-channel output. All three allow you to drive two pairs of stereo speakers either the same or two different pairs. You have choices... TL/5005

January 26, 2018
I would like to buy several pairs to mount above my outdoor patio and upper deck, and simply want them to connect to my indoor Echo devices to take advantage of my music unlimited subscription. Will these connect directly or must I purchase a separate Bluetooth transmitter?
1 Answer
Hi Tom: We had a question similar to this. According to Amazon you have 2 output options the first being direct connection with 3.5mm RCA output and the second being Bluetooth. But you are limited to using a single pair of BTP650 at a time. With some of the new phones you can sync up two different pair of Blue tooth speakers. You would need to contact Amazon to ask them if it is possible to sync with multiple devices. We are developing a Bluetooth Outdoor sub woofer which will have a 4.1 Amplifier so it will have a powered sub with two stereo outputs. Which could be your 2 BTP650 speakers with one Bluetooth Receiver built in to the omni Subwoofer. We expect the Bluetooth 4.1 Outdoor sub woofer to be available within next 30 days. TL/4771

Hi Billy: From everything I have read there are a lot of SONOS customers asking for SONOS to add Bluetooth, but currently I believe you would have to add a third party Bluetooth transmitter, then you could connect to whatever Bluetooth speaker or headphone you wanted to. I think SONOS is offended that anyone might think they need Bluetooth when SONOS does as much as it does. Amazon has many choices for Bluetooth Receivers that would pair up with the BTP650. TL/4720

yeikel
from 33025 asked:
September 12, 2016
How do you connect the two speakers together? I do not understand how the cables supplied work or what type or connector I need to buy..
1 Answer
Hi Yeikel: The only Bluetooth Wireless connection is between your Bluetooth Wireless device and the Master Speaker of the BTP525. The Master Speaker is the one speaker that has a cable coming out of the cabinet with a weatherproof connector that connects to the Power cord that is include in the package. The actual Power supply is in line half way to the two prong AC plug. This Power Supply provides current to power both the internal Bluetooth Receiver and 2 Channel Stereo Power Amplifier found in the Master Speaker. The second connection is 2 conductor speaker wire that has been stripped and tinned at both ends. Each conductor is coded although maybe covered up by the tinned end (you may need to strip a little more wire to find the conductor coding). You will need to make sure the same conductor goes to the positive output from the master to the positive input terminal of the Satellite Speaker (and the same with the negative connection). You do not need to buy anything in order to make all your connections. We do recommend that you place the Power Supply where it is does not be end up in any sitting water. Some customers purchase a waterproof enclosure to cover the power supply. I hope that answers your question TL/4065

Anyway to make these louder? Using an iPhone, sound is decent but not quite loud enough.
1 Answer
Hi Monty: You are limited to the output of your Bluetooth enabled device. You maybe able to download an Equalizer app that might add a little gain. TL4468

Can you connect these to a TV? Also, do you have to power them on each time you use them? I planned to mount near ceiling.
1 Answer
Hi Melissa: These will work with your TV if it has a built in Bluetooth transmitter that will sync up with our Bluetooth speakers. Once you turn the speakers on they are always on. Waiting to sync up with the next Bluetooth enabled device. If you mount them out of standard reach there is no way of shutting them off between usage. They do not draw a lot of current with no n=music playing. TL/4458

sjmcw

June 29, 2017
Is the estimated obstructed range of the bluetooth reception accurate? I want to place these on my patio and connect them to the Yamaha receiver in my living room. They will be about 40 to 50 feet away and the bluetooth will need to carry through 1 interior wall and then a 2nd exterior brick wall. I had different bluetooth speaker advertised as good for 100 feet. Inside it worked with the receiver, but it dropped as soon as I walked the speaker out to my backyard. Thanks.
1 Answer
Hi SJMCW: I like to say yes they would definitely work. What version were your previous speakers? These are Bluetooth V 3.0 which Bluetooth recently released a version 5.0 which as in each version they wanted to strengthen the distance. We do offer a 30 day performance guarantee. Maybe you should check what version your receiver has. Good luck TL/4445

Will these pair with a blue tooth transmitter hooked to a stereo receiver?
1 Answer
Hi Ernie: As long as it is a Bluetooth Receiver it should sync up with this kit. The BTP650 are Bluetooth 3.0 version. If you have a Transmitter with a higher version, Bluetooth Version 4.0 or better it should work just fine since the higher the version the better the distance. A stationary transmitter should work more consistent as well. TL/4443

Does sound quality and volume improve if you are using a stereo receiver to stream from instead of a phone with aps such as Pandora or Spotify?
1 Answer
Hi Tom: Good question, it may depend if which device has the latest version of Bluetooth. Bluetooth 5.0 has been introduced but not sure how many devices actually have adapted it in their component. Our BTP speakers all feature Bluetooth 3.0. There has since been BT4.0, BT4.1, BT4.2 and now BT5.0. Bluetooth technology is a global wireless communication standard that allows for the exchange of data over a certain distance. Bluetooth 3.0 Bluetooth 3.0, also known as high speed, is significantly faster than Bluetooth 2.0. Many wireless headphones operate with 3.0 technology which allows for a faster transfer rate at 20 megabits per second, as well as enhanced power control. This means that a smartphone can adjust to operate at the minimum power level needed to still retain a quality connection with your wireless headphones. Moreover, while still increasing the power if the Bluetooth connection if you were to move the phone further from the headphones. Bluetooth 4.0 When Bluetooth 4.0 was developed, the upgrade boasted a number of additional features like improved connectivity and range. However, what is most advantageous for audiophiles and really anyone especially interested in the internet of things is the Low Energy protocol. Bluetooth 4.1 Bluetooth Low Energy protocol means you can rock your wireless Bluetooth headphones a lot longer. Bluetooth LE allows smart devices to remain connected for longer periods of time without draining the battery. Bluetooth 4.1 took LE to another level. The 4.1 technology, which is currently featured in headphones like the MEE x7 Plus earbuds and others, can better manage their power and that of the device they are paired to by automatically powering up and down based on a power plan. Older versions of Bluetooth technology often interfered with other wireless technology, like 4G LTE communication, but the latest development was also made to fix that problem. Bluetooth 4.2 The latest iteration of Bluetooth is 4.2 technology. According to CSR, point two upgrade is said to dramatically increase speed 2.6x faster which means super speedy downloads that compared to older Bluetooth versions. I doubt whether there is any opposition to this feature. In addition privacy upgrades have been included, meaning system’s like Apple’s iBeacon can’t automatically track you unless you have enabled the system to do so with your device. Hmm… sounds like anti-Apple stalking technology. The 4.2 technology is currently featured in the iPhone 6. Bluetooth 5.0 This is the newest grade of Bluetooth that has very recently been released. Bluetooth 5.0 was designed specifically to provide lossless and secure communication as our gadgets and gizmos become more and more technologically advance. This includes the IoT (Internet of Things). How so? Bluetooth 5.0 is the fastest iteration. It processes connections at 2 times the speed over 4 times the range handling over 8 times the amount of data. This means the higher the speed the more responsive high-performance devices will be. The Increased broadcast message size also means more data can be transmitted. As Bluetooth.com explains, “These features, along with improved interoperability and coexistence with other wireless technologies, continue to advance the IoT experience by enabling simple and effortless interactions across the vast range of connected devices.” Maybe you need to ask the Bluetooth People.

Juan Martinez
from Houston, Texas asked:
June 18, 2017
Can you connect more than one set of speakers together? Daisy chain 2 pair
1 Answer
Hi Juan: Our systems all feature a master speaker and satellite speaker combination. The master features a built in Bluetooth Receiver and two channel Power Amplifier with a single connection to the internal speaker and a second connection that has to be hard wired to the satellite speaker. There is no way to tie a second pair of speakers to any of the systems. The only option is to purchase an amplifier like our XMP 100 and a Bluetooth Dongle signal level Receiver that can be plugged into the Main input on the XMP 100 digital amplifier. You have a choice of Speaker A and Speaker B. All which have to be hard wired from the Amp to the speakers. You do have the wireless connection between the Bluetooth device and the Bluetooth Dongle. We do have a couple of of new products on the drawing board featuring multiple pairs, stay tuned. TL/4430

Do the speakers need to be fully charged prior to pairing them to your bluetooth device? I set them up, plugged the power cord into the outlet and tried to pair. However, I did not see the speakers show up on my device.
1 Answer
Hi Keith: There is no battery to charge so that would not be a problem. Some Apple phones take up to 5 minutes to pair. I have forwarded your email address to our customer service. They may try to contact you or you can contact them and ask for Steven, he is our Bluetooth expert. TL/4416

I purchased the BTP 6.5" 2 way Outdoor Patio Speakers this past May. After setting up and paring the speakers they worked very well. Today I tried to paring the speakers again today and it wouldn't pair. I deleted all the possible bluetooth parings and restarted the pairing process. When I started the process the "pairing sound" was heard and the pairing "gear" started. After a few minutes the "pairing sound" was heard and then the process quit. I tried three or more time to pair the speakers but to no avail. Please give me a call at your earliest convenience. My phone number is (504) 616-4142. Kindest regards, Kenny Hurst

Steve
from Texas asked:
April 21, 2017
If I place the speakers 20 feet apart, can i use speaker wire longer than 30 feet to connect them? The manual says to place speakers within 30 feet of each other, but there is no mention of speaker wire length. The included wire was only 25 feet long. I need around 35 feet of wire to mount and install my speakers where I want them. Again, just 20 feet from speaker-to-speaker, but I need a longer length of wire. Is this recommended?
1 Answer
Hi Steve: We typically recommend the patio speakers to be placed between 8 to 12 feet apart for proper stereo separation (calculating the prime listening area would be 8 to 12 feet from the two speakers forming a triangle. We include 25 feet just in case you have to be creative when running your speaker wire. You can easily upgrade your speaker wire our 16/2 CL3/FT4 rated outdoor speaker wire. It is sold from 50 to 500 feet. It is approved for in-wall, outdoor and direct burial. TL/4319
