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.

Hi, I have a Bose Lifestyle 12 ( in my Family room) and it  has a " Speakers A" output. I have two " in the wall"  Speaker wire lines gone from my Family Room (at the stereo system location)

to the patio, on  two sides of my patio door. Bose says these two speaker wires,  if attached to the  " Speakers A" output  , must connect to "powered speakers"  . I thought this system 

might work but after reading the Q&A s here I think it won't. I do not have to have the  Bluetooth feature , what outdoor powered speakers do you recommend?  Thanks.

1 Answer
Hi Tom:

I would suggest purchasing our NERO Stream Xd and connect to Speaker A output of the BOSE Lifestyle 12 using an RCA patch cord and connect to the Dual RCA line input on the NERO Stream XD. Then purchase a pair of AP525 Patio speakers and connect them to the NERO Stream XD with 16 gauge speaker wire. The NERO Stream XD can be controlled by your phone using our OSD Player app (a free download in Android or Apple apps. The Nero Integrated amplifier includes both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi streaming in addition to the line-level inputs connected to the BOSE. There is also an IR remote control that comes with the NERO Stream XD. You can also add a second pair of AP525 for your outdoors if one pair does not provide you enough coverage. They can be wired from the first pair in a parallel daisy chain configuration or wired directly back to the NERO Stream XD and connected with the first pair of AP525 (The integrated amp will handle a 4-ohm load). There is also a NERO-Link Wi-Fi Receiver that can be added as a source to your BOSE and can link up with the NERO Stream XD (both controlled by the OSD player app).

Note: OSD has our Warehouse and Showroom in Brea, Northern Orange County

I can't tell if these would work for what we need (not very technical).  I need outdoor speakers for our projector.  They need to be able to plug in to our blue-ray player and also be bluetooth.  Do they make a speaker that can cover all aspects of outdoor entertainment?
1 Answer
Hi Crystal:

It depends if your Blu ray Player has an internal Bluetooth transmitter that connects to Bluetooth Headphones or any of our outdoor Bluetooth speaker kits (Patio Speakers: BTP525, BTP650, Rock Speakers: PTR150, BTR805, Planter Speakers: BPS520 or Frog Speakers: BTF525). Note this is an example of a Blu Ray Player from SONY that lists the following features;

Product Highlights

  • Stream from 300+ apps and entertainment services
  • Upscale Blu-ray Disc movies, DVDs, and photos to near 4K quality.
  • Connect to Bluetooth headphones to enjoy wireless listening
  • Multi-room streaming with Music Center App
  • View smartphone content on your TV with Miracast screen mirroring technology
  • Enjoy fast, stable Wi-Fi even when streaming in HD
  • Full HD 1080p Blu-ray Disc playback with 2D to 3D conversion

Note our Bluetooth kits feature a Master Speaker that has both an internal Bluetooth Receiver and 2 Channel Power Amplifier. You need to connect a Water Proof Power Supply (supplied with the kit) to an AC outlet. Our Bluetooth Speakers all feature a two-channel stereo solution. A second satellite speaker with no internal power must connect to the Master Speaker using the two-conductor speaker cable supplied with the speakers. The Bluetooth headphones feature a rechargeable battery but also highlights a similar internal Bluetooth Receiver that connects wirelessly like our kits.

I hope that helps

Is it safe to have the speakers under a pergola, where they aren't completely out of the weather?
1 Answer
Hi Kristie:

These speakers feature a sealed front Baffle and have a snap-on the back cover that hides the speaker wire connection on both the master and satellite speakers. There is a waterproof connector for the AC power supply, and the on/off button is weatherproof. So no problem, exposed to the elements. They have an IP6X rating; 100% dustproof.

Good Choice

Once the master speaker is powered on, can it remain that way?  Mounting height is over 13 feet and don't want to have to make that climb all the time.

Hi Rick:

Yes, the Bluetooth Master Speaker stays on but when you disconnect it goes into standby waiting for the next connect. You will hear a signal when you sync up and when you disconnect. There are a couple of options for a multi-plug adaptor cable that features an on/off switch that can be controlled by an app on your phone. Check out this link;

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

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

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 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

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.

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.

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. There is also a two conductor speaker wire between the Master and Satellite speakers as well. TL/3931

Where is the on/off switch? If I mount them on the wall flush is the switch accessible. Thanks in advance for a response.
1 Answer
Hi Rich: The On/Off switch is located on the back of the Master Speaker (the one you connect the Power cord to) It is accessible once the speaker is mounted to the wall with the included mounting bracket. There is a plastic cover that can be removed after the speaker is mounted to get to the switch. TL/3925

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

can these be used with a source other than bluetooth? Can i plug a sonos connect into this for example? If not do you have another bluetooth speaker where i can at a later time also plug a different source into them?
1 Answer
HI Tom: All of our Bluetooth speakers all connect via a Bluetooth Enabled Device.There is no other option for connecting a signal level source like from a SONOS Connect. We have discussed adding signal level (dual RCA inputs) to our BTP Patio speakers. We did offer a 2.4 GHz WiFi speaker that had this feature at one time before changing everything over to Bluetooth wireless. It can be done but we have not added that feature. Maybe we will re examine adding that capability. But for now we do not have that available, sorry about that. TL/ 3913

How water resistant are these? I live in Oregon. Am wondering if I need to take them down in the winter when we get lots and lots of rain?
1 Answer
HI Jessica: I live in Oregon as well and just like our deck furniture I would recommend taking the speakers be brought in after November 1st about the time they let us have studded tires on the road. And they are portable enough so when they are calling for warmer temperatures with the occasional sun breaks you can bring them back in and out. You know it only rains twice in Oregon; Early October to mid April then end of April to July 1st. TL/3891

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
