Features & Specifications

This is the 2nd generation of our Bluetooth® Rock Speakers, we made the following changes a) Using better sound rock shell from our most popular rock speaker RX805 with better bass and clear high ends. b) Using waterproof IP67 grade power supply for better outdoor durability.

Get ready to jam in any outdoor space with the BTR805 Wireless Bluetooth® Rock Speaker . This 8" set is ideal for your lawn, garden or patio for best bass; they come in Granite Grey or Sandstone Canyon Brown so you can coordinate without the speakers looking out of place.

There are two speakers, a master and pairing speaker. The master speaker has the internal stereo amplifier plus built in Wireless Bluetooth® Receiver. The second or pairing speaker is connected to the master speaker using the 10Ft speaker cable that is included with the kit. The result is a two channel stereo output. It is recommended to have the speakers 8 to 12 feet apart for best stereo dispersion. You can cut the 10Ft cable down to the exact length desired. The extra cable is supplied in case you have to be created to hide the wire when running it between the two speakers.

Specifications

Bluetooth® Wireless Rock Speaker Setup

1) The Master Bluetooth® Rock Speaker should be located near a 110 volt AC outlet so the Power Supply can be connected to the Master Rock Speaker in order to provide the electrical current needed for the Internal Amplifier and Bluetooth® Receiver. Choose a location where the Power Supply block will not be sitting in water.
2) The Pairing Rock Speaker must be connected to the Master Rock speaker using the 10-foot Speaker Wire supplied with the kit.

When I turn on the power the speakers fail to power up and give me the 

"Pairing" tone from time to time. This is especially true when I turn them of to pair another device.

I've waiting 5, 10 and 30 minutes and more and then turned in the power and nothing happens. Yet, tomorrow morning I'll have no problem.

Hi Dave:


Our facility is in Brea, CA; maybe you can arrange to bring in your Master Speaker and have it tested. It does not sound like a Power Supply or Satellite Speaker Issue. Call our Customer Service and talk to them about your issue. They are more knowledgable about Bluetooth. 562-697-2600

Hello I would like to know where i can find a replacement power supply. My speakers worked fine for about 2 hours then stopped working. I tested the power supply on a couple (working) outlets and each time the plug that screws into the speaker was dead. Thank you. Brian Jackson.

How long is the power supply cord? I want to make sure they will reach the plug from the shrub bed.
1 Answer
Hi JO: The Power Cable breaks down as follows: the cord from the AC plug to the actual Power Supply block is just under 4 feet. The cable from the block to the speaker is around 16 feet. Then there is a short pigtail (under 2 feet) coming from the bottom of the speaker which has a waterproof connection to the Power Supply Cable. TL/5309

September 29, 2018
any alexa enabled speakers available - linked via voice, the alexa app, and amazon music
1 Answer
Hi Ashish: According to this link they say the AMAZON Echo does have an internal Bluetooth Transmitter built-in and you can command to connect to Bluetooth which then disables the internal speaker: https://www.aftvnews.com/the-amazon-echo-dot-is-more-versatile-with-bluetooth-speakers-than-wired-speakers: An external speaker connection can be achieved wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired through the 3.5mm audio jack on the back of the device. The issue around using the 3.5mm jack is that, when a 3.5mm cable is connected to the Echo Dot, the internal speaker is completely bypassed, whether or not your wired speakers are turned on. This means that, when using a wired connection, your wired speakers must be turned on if you ever want to use the Echo Dot. On the other hand, with Bluetooth speakers, the Echo Dot switches back to its internal speakers when the Bluetooth speakers are turned off. Even if the Bluetooth speakers are on, you have the flexibility to sever the connection hands-free by simply asking Alexa, so you can switch back to the internal speaker at will. If you have your heart set on using wired speakers with the Echo Dot, there are things you can do to make wired speakers a lot more convenient. So you can use the AMAZON ALEXA connection to broadcast the audio signal via Bluetooth to any of our Bluetooth enabled speakers including broadcasting to our NERO XS integrated amplifier with built-in Bluetooth Receiver.

A squirrel (or some other rodent) chewed thru my power cords. Do you sell the power supplies? If not, is there a recommendation
1 Answer
Hi Scott: I am sorry to hear that. Two options, one is to take a picture of the Power Supply so we can check if we still have a matching replacement in our RMA Department. The second option would involve taking the unit to an audio Video Repair shop and having them splice the cable back together and maybe add an extension piece. They could also test the power supply to see if it is still good to go. Send the image to tim@osdaudio.com. I would follow up with the RMA department. TL/5175

I purchased a pair of the BTR805's a year and a half ago and absolutely love them. Unfortunately here in South Texas the sun gets very hot and the Bluetooth range on my speakers is probably 15' at best. Setting my phone out near the speakers is a real pain as I have to hide it under a chair to keep from overheating and stopping. Is there a way to extend the Bluetooth range? The whole idea was to sit at the patio table and eat with music playing but the table is about 25' away and there's no way the current Bluetooth in the system can reach it.

Can rock speakers be left out in rain.
1 Answer
Hi Keith: Yes most rock speakers are able to be exposed to the elements but you can be careful that your placement is not where a puddle would form around the enclosure or that it would be pelted by a sprinkler system. These feature our newest Waterproof Power Supply as well the IP67. You also will want to bring the speakers in for the off season which for you in the Southeast my just be three to four months during the winter. If you put your outdoor furniture away for a period of time do the same with the Rock Speakers.Speaker Wire can stay especially if it is buried. You might want to bring the power supply in a well. Note: Some outdoor patio speakers are not meant for direct exposure especially those featuring ported design. TL/4953

Any way to connect to two pair. I bought two sets but cannot figure out how to do it? Thank you
1 Answer
Hi Andrew: These will not sync together unless you have one of the new phones which allow you to connect to two separate Bluetooth Receivers. I believe the new Samsung Galaxy and possibly the new iPhone 8 or X (but don't quote me on that). Most all of our Bluetooth speakers are stereo pair with a master and satellite setup. We do have anew product the BOM4.1 which features four channels (2 stereo connections, 60 watts per channel) so you can connect two pair of any passive speaker and have the added bonus of a Built in 8 inch sub woofer (100 watts). You could connect two different pairs (i pair of Patio and 1 pair of rocks as an example). In your case you could connect to two pair of the RS 805 and have a powered sub woofer to boot for less than you paid for the (2) BTR-805. You do have a 30 day performance guarantee. TL/4938

January 29, 2018
I recently started receiving a lot of bluetooth interference (audio cutting out) if I'm holding the broadcasting device (phone/tablet/etc) in my hands or attempt to use the device for anything (change the track, browse social media, etc). I've tried using the device with and without wifi enabled, and I've tried other devices, and still the same. No obstructions, and the device and speaker are sometimes even 10ft apart with this issue. Any ideas?
1 Answer
HI Fabian: I am sorry to hear you are having a problem with the BTR 805. It doesn't sound like the Power Supply is bad and I am assuming the issue appears to be affecting both speakers, not just the master speaker where the power is connected to so it powers both the Bluetooth Receiver and two channel stereo amplifier. You could send it back Outdoor Speaker Depot and let us test it out (we are in Brea, CA). Contact customer service. Good Luck TL/4776

Any update on a solution to adding another set of these speakers to the existing set so you can run 4 versus 2 speakers with Bluetooth.
1 Answer
Hi Diana: Supposedly there are some Android Phones that will sync up with two different Receivers so you could add a second pair of BTP 800 and connect to both. We are working on having a Omni Outdoor Sub woofer with a built in Bluetooth Receiver and 4.1 Amplifier. That would allow you to connect to any two pair of speakers and also have a sub woofer.

July 19, 2017
Hello, I bought this product from Amazon a few days ago. The problem I'm having is that the "master" unit has a lot more bass and not enough treble than the "slave" unit. The speakers are about 25' apart and you definitely hear the difference when you are 20 + feet away and if I get close to each one of them, one has a lot better sound than the other! Please let us know if this is a normal occurrence or if we need to return them. I am comparing this set to the BTB650 set that I've purchased two years ago that are working great. Looking forward to your reply.
1 Answer
HI Mike: These are a stereo pair that are meant to be placed no more than 10 to 12 feet apart so they blend both the right and left channel together That is why each one sounds just fine when your close to it. Unfortunately this design featuring a master and a satellite speaker is limited to just the two speakers. Normally we would have suggested having two pair of rocks to cover the comparable area. We are developing a new Bluetooth product that will feature two pair of speakers and a sub woofer that would be perfect for what you are describing. Hopefully you will be able to fit them closer together and see if that makes a difference. TL/4477

from US asked:
June 5, 2017
Subject: Multiple Bluetooth speakers Are there any issues running multiple sets of the BTR800 together via Bluetooth? In other words, can I purchase two sets and have both sets (4 speakers) playing the same music at the same time using Bluetooth? I hope that makes sense. Thanks, Tyler
1 Answer
Hi Tyler: Good question, one we get all the time. Unfortunately all of our current Bluetooth kits feature a stereo pair of speakers (one exception is the BTR800TT, which is single rock stereo DVC speaker) one being a Master Speaker which includes both a Built in Bluetooth Receiver and Two Channel Stereo Power Amplifier (the speaker you connect the supplied Power Supply/Cord to supply AC current to both the Receiver and Power Amp) and a single Satellite Speaker with the matching speaker to the Master Speaker which is connected to the Master Speaker by a speaker wire supplied with the kit. The Bluetooth Receiver is limited to a single connection to a Bluetooth enabled device like a Smartphone or Tablet. Your Device will not sync up with more than one receiver at a time. And there are only 2 channel amplifiers after each Receiver so your limited to the pair that are part of the kit. We are working on some alternatives but nothing we can divulge at this time.

1 Answer
Hi Geo: I do not believe you need or that a code is broadcast. You will know when you are paired since an audio signal comes through the speaker as soon as it pairs. Then it is up to your Bluetooth enabled (transmitter) device to adjust the volume. It is a loud momentary pinging sound each time it pairs. If you do not hear that then there is a possibility you are not paired. I would also try our sales department; 562-697-4200 and ask for Ed or Aaron both more proficient with Bluetooth than I. TL/4526

The Bluetooth Receiver is located in the Master rock and is only two channel with one channel powering the internal speaker and a second channel is powering the satellite rock which you have to connect to the master rock via speaker wire supplied with the kit. All of our current Bluetooth speakers have the same issue.

Are these speakers waterproof?
1 Answer
Hi Jan: These are as waterproof as we can make them where we weatherproof with silicon on all the access points and around the frame of the speaker and speaker wire connections. These also feature waterproof on/off switch and Power and speaker wire connections. The weakest link is probably the perforated grill on the front of the rock where the sound comes out. Make sure to stay away from sprinklers, standing water and plan to take them in when not using for extended periods or during the winter months (certainly a short time in LA). Snow won't be a problem for you which is good. Good luck Tim L Note; One of the speakers is the Master which features an internal Bluetooth Receiver and Stereo Amplifier (this has the 20 foot power supply and cord connected to it). It also features a output for the speaker wire that connects to the second or satellite speaker so you can have true stereophonic sound. Speaker placement usually between 8 to 12 feet apart.

Can you hook other single speakers to the main also? I would like 4 total speakers working together. So main and then 3 singles? Thanks
1 Answer
Hi Jeff: Good question.... Currently all our models have a built in Stereo Amplifier with one channel connected to the internal speaker (the right channel as an example) and a single output for the Left channel for true Stereo separation. The internal amplifier is meant only to power a single pair of eight ohm speakers. We have been looking into Bluetooth technology where the Bluetooth receiver has a built in extender so it outputs the stereo signal to a second Receiver (not sure if this is by WiFi or Bluetooth). Another possibility is to have a built in four channel amplifier with three outputs, one matching the internal amplifier and then another for right and left stereo to connect to a second pair of passive speakers. But I need to do more research, but as it stands we are limited with our current lineup to a single pair of Rocks, Patio and Frogs speakers. Stay Tuned TL/

Can I take one of the speakers and take it anywhere I want without having it plugged into an outlet is the rock speaker rechargeable battery operated also
1 Answer
HI Ben: The BTR-800 only works on AC power with the Power Supply plugged into AC Outlet. The BTR-150 has an optional battery pack that you can use versus the AC power supply. But there is no connection between the Battery Pack and AC Power Supply so you can use rechargeable batteries but they will not recharge while in the battery pack plugged into the bottom of the speaker. You would have to remove the Rechargeable batteries and place them in to an actual Rechargeable battery charger. Rechargeable batteries hold about a 60% charge versus the Alkaline's 100%. In regards to your second question; the Master or Sync Rock contains both the Bluetooth Receiver as well as the Stereo Power Amplifier. But only one of the two channels is connected from the Amplifier to the internal speaker of the main Rock. Not sure if you have an option to send a mono signal from your Bluetooth device.Otherwise you would only be listening to either right or left. Good Luck TL/3749

The title says "wireless" yes the instructions say wire and it includes wire. I don't understand. I am looking for true wireless out door rock or planter speakers to cover traffic noise in my back yard. What do you recommend? thanks
1 Answer
Hi Shelley: Wireless only pertains to the audio signal from your Bluetooth enabled device. There has to be a wired connection to supply power to the Internal amplifier and Bluetooth Receiver both found in the master speaker. The master speaker has a stereo amplifier which has one channel connected to the internal speaker of the master speaker and the other channel connected to speaker output by a 2 conductor speaker wire to the satellite (second) speaker thus giving you right and left stereo speaker setup.

I know they are sold in pairs, however, if you use a y adapter or 2, can you piggyback more speakers. If I bought 1 pair, and 2 additional secondary speakers, could I hook them all together (or would I lack Power) also do you ship to Canada?
1 Answer
Hi Alan, I believe you should be able to run two satellite speakers off the main speaker, but only one master speaker can be paired with a Bluetooth device.

1 Answer
Hi Bryan, You can only connect 1 pair to a device at any given time. That is the limitation of Bluetooth in its current version.

I currently have 2 wired speakers outside. Am I able to add these 2 speakers outside and have them work with the wired speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Devlin, These speaker run off Bluetooth via a smart device such as an iPhone, Android, etc. They can't be paired with wired speakers or other wireless speaker for that matter. Great speakers to quickly and easily connect to but they are limited to your Bluetooth smart device.

what speakers have more volume or sound, BTR-800 or BTP-650. In description they have the same watts, but subwoofer in the BTR-800 is 8" vs 6.5" ind de BTP-650.
1 Answer
Hi Alain, The BTR-800 will give an overall stronger volume with its 8" woofer. The max volume will really depend on the Bluetooth device controlling them though.

I bluetoothed this to my hopper/tv. However, I cannot figure out how to adjust the volume. I can adjust them when connected to my ipad.

Hi Cellini, The only volume control you can have with these speakers is if your bluetooth source has volume control.
