Bluetooth® Setup Patio Speaker

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 10-foot Speaker Cable that is supplied with the kit.

Brian
from Fresno, CA asked:
October 3, 2018
Is it possible to extend the low voltage cable (between power supply and speaker) to 120 feet?
1 Answer
Hi Brian: Due to the length, you will have to find a larger gauge Extension cord. You will need a Medium Duty extension cord based upon the voltage draw you will need, Medium-duty cords usually are grounded extension cords, which include the third wire for grounding. They have plugs that accept three-prong grounded appliance cords. Uses televisions, computers and other devices that draw up to 10 amps of power. Cord length up to 25 feet: use No. 16-gauge wire. Cord length up to 50 feet: use No. 14-gauge wire. Cord length up to 100 feet: use No. 12-gauge wire. I would recommend a single 100 foot 12 gauge Extension cord. When you add the 3.3 ft from power plug to the transformer and them 16 plus feet from the transformer to the Speaker (for roughly 120 ft total, that should work) TL/5227

Willie
from Miami, FL asked:
May 12, 2018
Hi, Do you sell additional passive speakers which I can split the wiring coming from the powered one?
1 Answer
Hi Willie: We do not recommend split the speaker wire coming out of the master speaker. One channel is directed to the internal speaker (right channel) and the output is connected to the Left channel. And you know two lefts don't make it right. The system would become unbalanced and would put a strain on the internal amplifier. It needs to be an 8-ohm load so it cannot be expanded. You should check out the BOM 4.1 which was created to solve the problem that two stereo speakers will not provide enough coverage. And unless you have a high-end smartphone where you can connect to two Bluetooth Receivers at once. The BOM4.1 not only feature the connection between two pairs of speakers but you can mix two different pairs or styles. You might pick out a pair of the AP525 and pair it with an RS670 pair of rock speakers. Add to that you have 100 watts 8" subwoofer complimenting the system. TL/4978

I bought these speakers back in Aug of 2015. They worked great but now they just make a clipping sound. I think I need a new power supply. Do you sell the power supply separately? The specs are 100-240VAC 50/60Hz 12vDC 2.5A. See attached picture
1 Answer
Hi Paul: You will need to contact our customer service department. I believe there is a newer Power Supply being supplied to both the BTP650 and BTP525 but I believe we do have replacements for the original as well. Not sure if the new PS has the same connecting plug. They can verify at the warehouse. Customer Service; 5620697-2600. TL/4963

Will these speakers work with a Bluetooth transmitter plugged into my receiver headphone jack? My A/V receiver can receive Bluetooth but does not transmit.
1 Answer
HI Karl: Sure it can, the device you connect to the headphone output is a Bluetooth transmitter and would sync up with the BTP525 internal receiver of the master speaker. TL/4826

Tom
from NJ asked:
January 2, 2018
Hey OSD...How is the non-master speaker powered (if the master is the only one of the pair that is powered)? Just have to note, I purchased all of my in-ceiling speakers, in-wall volume controls, and a speaker selector (after a whole-house renovation) from OSD and I am very pleased with both the cost and quality! Thank you OSD!
1 Answer
Hi Tom: The way the BTP 525 Master/satellite works is the master speaker has both the Bluetooth Receiver and 2 channel stereo amplifier built in which needs to have AC power supplied to it. Then one channel is connected to the internal speaker of the master and a second 2 conductor (+/-) you add a speaker cable to connect the Master to the Satellite speaker. So the only true wireless connection is between your Bluetooth enabled device and the Bluetooth Receiver built into the Master Speaker. We are introducing a Outdoor Powered Subwoofer with built in Bluetooth Receiver and a 4.1 powered Amplifier so you can connect any two pair of speakers to the Powered Subwoofer. I hope that answers your question. TL/4723

I want to be able to play sound through the tv and switch over to Bluetooth and play music from my phone. Is this possible with these speakers?
1 Answer
HI Sam: No problem playing your phone but unless your TV has Bluetooth connection you can not connect directly to the BTP 525. We do have a Bluetooth wall unit that has both Bluetooth and a signal level (3.5mm) connection. But you have to run wires from the amplifier built in the wall to the respective speakers. Model XWB50.

Are these speakers weather proof? We live in New England and therefore have various unexpected weather conditions.. can these speakers withstand these conditions, or do they need to be brought in and out every time we use them?
1 Answer
Hi Lauren: There are our highest rated outdoor cabinets (also the same design for our AP525). They hold up during the Late Spring, Summer and Early Fall. Would recommend taking them in during the long off season. I live in Portland Or and have these on my deck as well. They have been put away now for the last 30 days.

I am buying a tao tronics Bluetooth transmitter that says it will pair with 2 devices so will this pair with 2 master speakers
1 Answer
Hi Matt: Yes this should pair with the Tao Tronics 4.1 Transmitter, I believe they have two models that will sink with a couple pair of receivers. You may have a problem with latency on one or both pair. Here is from their specs: Pairs with 2 Devices: 2-in-1 Bluetooth 4.1 transmitter pairs with up to two Bluetooth receivers like headphones or speakers simultaneously; Note: aptX Low Latency does NOT support dual link mode. We are working on a new Bluetooth outdoor sub featuring connection for up to two pair of any speakers. Stay tuned TL/4517

Are the speakers Yamaha MusicCast compatible ? I.e I know they will work with my receivers Bluetooth function but will they be recognized as a MusicCast device? There is a difference.
1 Answer
Hi Andy: These will sync up with multiple Bluetooth devices. But will not share a signal at the same time with any other pair of speakers. The MusicCast devices all feature built in Bluetooth Receiver as well as Transmitters: From MusicCast specs: "built-in Bluetooth for wireless music streaming and transmission". So you should be able to sync up any of our Bluetooth Patio, Rock, Garden and Frog speakers. Good question... TL/4452

StevO
from California asked:
March 18, 2017
I need two sets of speakers (total of four) on my patio. Can I purchase a SECOND set BTP525 and discover AND connect both sets for simultaneous play?
1 Answer
Hi StevO: There is currently no way to add a second pair of speakers to the Bluetooth Patio Speakers we sell. A competitor offers a splitter that allows you to connect two pair but there is a time delay or latency issue between them. We are working on some options like offering a compact amplifier with built in Bluetooth receiver and an A/B speaker option. For now we do recommend adding a external Bluetooth receiver to our XMP100 Digital Power amplifier and purchasing 2 pair of our AP525, the identical speaker to the BTP 525. The Amp features both Speaker A and B. A new Bluetooth Receiver runs around $20.00 on line. TL/4258

Cortez
from Douglasville ga asked:
April 24, 2016
I was looking at the BTP-525 wireless Bluetooth speaker a bit confused it say's connection to master speaker should not exceed 13' but it also said pairing speaker must be connected to the master speaker with the 30' of speaker that is supplied with kit ?
1 Answer
Hi Cortez: Sorry for the confusion, the Speaker kit comes with a 25 foot speaker wire for connecting the Master to the Satellite Speaker. It is recommended that the speakers be no more than 13 feet apart for proper stereo separation. The reason the speaker wire is longer is just in case you have an application where you may not be able to run the wire in a straight line directly to the second speaker. Once you determine how much wire you will need you can cut it down for an exact fit. I will attempt to update the web site for all Bluetooth Speakers to avoid further confusion.

Anyone have issues with volume from a Mac book pro 2016? Works great on my Android devices with my Mac book the volume at .25 out of 10 is way too loud like my Android at 6. I've looked for a solution on the Mac to lower the volume with no like. Blue tooth is a digital signal so I find out strange that the volume is so much louder.

Hi Stephen: This is a performance issue of the Mac Pro versus the comparable issue of a PC based laptop (usually half the price of the Mac Book) There is also different versions of the Bluetooth.

David
from North Carolina asked:
May 13, 2017
What is the voltage and current output of the Power Supply for the master speaker? I want to install this in an RV type trailer, and not be dependent upon 117VAC for power. Ideally the Power Supply would offer 12 VDC to the master speaker, at some reasonable amps... but if not, it may be easier for me to acquire a voltage converter... than provide 117VAC. Thank you.
1 Answer
Hi David: We are limited to the power supply that comes with the unit. It is a switching power supply that will work for 110V or 230V. It will not output 12V. You would be better off choosing a car audio head unit with built in Bluetooth and you could connect to a pair of our AP650 or AP525 Indoor/outdoor speakers identical to the passive speaker of the BTP650/525. The head unit would provide you the source and Bluetooth option and be 12 volt. TL/4362

Regarding the power cord, does it come in white? I need it to match the color of my porch. Also, is the power cord plug three-prong or two-prong?
1 Answer
Hi Chris: Both the Power cord and speaker wire are black. The prong plug is a detachable cord about 6 to 8 feet long. Not sure if anybody has a white version of this. The cord from the power Supply is definitely black. You could paint it to match your porch but make sure it works first.

I have a OSD set and I need a new power cord. Can someone let me know where I can purchase one? Thank you.
1 Answer
Hi Cheryl: The Power Cord for the speaker is made up of a 7 foot cable that connects to the AC outlet on one end and plugs into the actual Power Supply (similar to a lap top power supply but a much longer cord). The Power Supply features an additional 15 feet of cord. If you are missing the first cord, you can buy it at any electronics store, its the same cord used for Samsung TV's. This is the description: SPECS : High Quality 2 Prong Ac Power Cord / CONNECTORS : IEC-60320 (IEC320) C7 to NEMA 1-15P / UL & RoHS Certified E308842 NISPT-1 2/C 18AWG(0.824mm2) 105C 300V VW-1 108540-001 FT1.

1 Answer
HI Andy: The only way to turn these on and off is with the rocker switch located on the back of the Main/Master speaker which features the Bluetooth Receiver and stereo amplifier (the speaker that has the power cord attached to it). When the speaker does not see a signal for a period of time it goes into hibernation waiting for the signal to reappear. It just in stand by mode and not continually drawing excessive current..

Has anyone discovered a solution for hiding the power cord? I want to get these and have them mounted on my patio. But I worry about the eyesore of a dangling power cord that has to connect to an outlet near ground level.
1 Answer
Hi Billy: We give you about 25 feet of power cord to help in rerouting the cord to help hide it. The actual power supply is 20 plus feet from the speaker with a three foot removable AC plug. You can buy longer extensions of this cable if needed as well. It is weird to talk about a wireless product that you have to hide some wires but it is the nature of the beast.

from WI asked:
June 11, 2016
You said "It is recommended that the speakers be no more than 13 feet apart for proper stereo separation" . For my deck configuration i would like to place them about 40' apart. What issues could i have?
1 Answer
Hi Todd: Placement of the speakers for optimum stereo sound is pretty standard. Normally if someone presents an application where they have 40 feet to cover we would recommend going with two pair of speakers with each speaker mounted 8 feet apart. The Bluetooth Speakers are limited due to it is only one pair with a master and satellite speaker that have to be wired together for the proper right and left stereo separation. We include about 20+ feet of speaker wire with the kit so you will need to order a 40 foot to connect the two speakers, something like our 16/2 speaker wire sold, 50 ft. You only need two conductor between the two speakers. We always refer to the Beatles song; Yellow Submarine where one track has the music and the other track has the vocals. Might sound a little weird being 40 foot apart. TL/3924

Patrick
from Charleston, SC asked:
May 18, 2016
What are my options/how do I hardwire the speakers for power if not interested in utilizing a traditional plug outlet? Can they be wired to pull power from a light outlet? Trying to avoid mounting speakers on the ceiling of my porch and then having to run a power cable down the front of my house. Kind of defeats the notion of wireless otherwise. Thanks
1 Answer
Hi Patrick: Saying these are wireless is a little of a misnomer, probably should call them Semi-Wireless. You could change a light outlet to be a AC plug or add an adapter that has a light socket and AC plug. Or have an electrician cut off the AC plug connected to the external power supply and hard wire it into the fixture. Either way you still have to have the external Power Supply. The problem is you have both a Bluetooth Receiver and internal Stereo Amplifier found in the Master Patio speaker which needs power for both the Bluetooth Receiver and Stereo Amplifier that is connected to both the Internal speaker and satellite speaker (connected by two conductor speaker cable) for true right and left stereo separation. The key is the mobility of your Bluetooth device either smartphone or tablet. I hope that helps... TL/3888

How do you control the volume of the speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Yvan: The Internal amplifier is variable so it depends on the Bluetooth enabled device for controlling the volume that you sync up with the Speakers. TL/3789

Do thee speakers come with the metal brackets to hang them as seen in the pictures?
1 Answer
Hi Zachary: All of our Patio Speakers come with mounting Brackets that allow you to angle the speakers inward if mounted Vertically or Up or down if mounted Horizontal. We include the screws to attach the brackets to the speaker but you will need to purchase the mounting screws so you can install the bracket to to what ever surface you choose for the placement of the speakers. There is 13 feet of speaker wire included with the kit so you can attach the speaker wire from the Master Speaker to the satellite. The Master Speaker features both an internal Bluetooth Wireless Receiver and Stereo Amplifier. You will need to find an AC outlet to provide power to the Master speaker. The kit includes an external waterproof power supply with a 20 foot cable to plug into the Master Speaker. The true wireless connection is between your Bluetooth enabled device (Smartphone or Tablet) and the Master Speaker. I hope that helps TL/3774

Can I buy two sets of these and connect one to the other?
1 Answer
HI TC: Unfortunately you can only connect to one set of speakers at a time. We are trying to interface a new technology into a a pair of Bluetooth that will have a repeater built into a Receiver that will broadcast to a second set of Bluetooth speakers. Then you would be able to connect multiple sets. Stay tune TL/3767

Can these be in moisture areas where they will get wet by rain?
1 Answer
Hi Todd, It is best to have the patio style speakers mounted under cover (eave, patio) as they have metallic parts that can rust. The Bluetooth rock speakers can be out in the weather.

from Houston, Tx asked:
August 9, 2015
I've purchased & installed these speakers. Very easy install but I have some questions. Why do I have a recurring beeping like the Bluetooth is resetting? I've tried with several different Bluetooth phones w same issue. So, thoughts ..... How is the secondary speaker powered? Which color speaker wire should connect to red connection? Maybe I didn't set something up correctly ... The instructions do not address these questions.
1 Answer
Hi Janet, When are they beeping? Is it when you leave the area and come back? If so, that would be normal. That is the sound it makes when your device is reconnecting after having been out of range of the speakers. However if that's happening at random times when you're perfectly in range of the speakers, then that's not normal. Wire should be red to red and black to black.

Clear crisp finally
Finally found a pair of speakers that are Bluetooth I live in Ontario Canada and no one sells them here. Even though they have to be wired together But the wire can be trimmed to your liking And fine the power supply is not weatherproof,just don't get it in direct weather and it will be fine But I just received them and sound fantastic.
ProsBest sound No batteries to die!! Great volume without being distorted If you have a pool This would be the best speaker for you Looks great in black
ConsNot completely wireless

Superb sound, easy to pair with my iPhone, perfect for my patio.
Fast delivery to S. California address (1 day), received a pair of well-built 5 1/4" patio speakers with power supply. I tested them before installing under my patio and find out these speakers sound surprisingly good with excellent clear mid range and soothing highs, the bass is suitable for 5 1/4" speakers. I open my iPhone Bluetooth device and easily pair with the speakers, I use Spotify to play my music and volume level is good. I have no complaint on the Bluetooth range of 40ft.
ProsQuality built and finish High marks on sound quality (you will be surprised how good the sound is) Easy to install and use Wireless

Great speakers
Was hesitant about buying these speakers due to some poor reviews but am so glad I did buy. It was an easy install and they work very well. They sync easily to our phones and after I shortened the speaker wire the sounds were plenty loud when I wanted. I would recommend these.

Bose Got Nothing on This One
I have a Bose bluetooth, the one speaker kind; it's good, but this BTP-525 has every bit as good in sound to my ears. A lot lower cost too. While it won't run on battery like the Bose, it still provides the comparable sound in true stereo. Look forward to taking down to the lake pavilion for a dance with my wife; on the yacht, and even by the flag pole in our circle drive during Independence Day fireworks. Very versatile and easy to connect.
Prosstereo and good sound

Great Outdoor Speakers!
Great Outdoor Speakers! Louder and better sound than I imagined. Nice design. Bigger than I thought, just the right size. Definitely enough wire. Housing and equipment arent flimsy. Connects to your bluetooth very easy.
ProsSturdy. Loud, clear sound. Just the right amount of bass and treble. Long wires. Connects easy.
ConsSeems to cut in and out sometimes as soon as i leave the porch...but not a huge problem.
Best UsesOutdoor...decks, bars. Indoor...big rooms, bars. I got these for my tiki bar I just built.

Not as advertised-Too Short
Speakers worked great as tested prior to placing on back patio. The problem came when trying to plug in, the cord from the power source was not 8 feet as advertised in the specs. When I called they said tat they no longer had 8 feet but the shorter 4 foot and they have yet to change the site or specs. i truly needed the 8 feet as I measured prior to ordering. I presented a solution to them that would have resolved the issue but the owner was unwilling to accommodate. I would have been happy to purchase 8 foot cords and get reimbursed for them, NO WAY. Over all the sound was good, did not ship what was advertised I would make sure to double check the specs compared to what they ship, it could become a real hassle
Prosgood sound
Consproduct did not match what was actually advertised

The set-up of the speakers was very simple. Once they were in place I turned on my phone and then the speakers. Within 10 seconds they were paired. End of story. They are appropriately loud without distortion.

Great speakers, great price
Kudos to OSD on the fast delivery. I got these things two days after I ordered them, which was perfect timing so we could install them before our big BBQ. Sure, they're not top of the line, but they're excellent for the price. We put them on the inside corners of our gazebo and it turned out great. The only downsides are that the power button is on the back of a speaker; we solved this by keeping power on and plugging them into a power strip and using the strip button to turn on and off. The other downside is that they only turn left and right on the mounts, no up and down. But really, these things are great and get loud enough for a big party. Just don't expect them to be heard blocks away; they're not concert speakers. Super happy with them and the price!
ProsPrice, delivery speed, sound quality
ConsPower button, limited motion of speaker mounts

Bluetooth Speakers
I am very pleased with the speakers. I have looked a number of different configurations but decided to order the BTP-525 speakers. The Bluetooth connected very easily and we have been rocking out all weekend to hits from our teenage years and college years. Quality of speakers is over the top and the sound quality will blow your socks off. Great price and great quality. I believe that is a winning combination.
ProsEasy install, easy Bluetooth connection, outstanding quality, excellent sound.
ConsNone that I know.
Best UsesMy speakers our hung under our back porch facing the swimming pool.
