Ontario, Canada (October 16, 2020)—Bluesound Professional is now shipping its BSP1000 and BSP500 network active loudspeakers. The PoE speakers incorporate integrated streaming capability and are designed specifically for use in either indoor or outdoor commercial installations.
Offered in choice of White or Black matte finish, the speakers come supplied with an integral wall mounting bracket for installation. Based around a one-wire connection paradigm—hence the PoE aspect—the speakers use the BluOS platform, which is capable of playing and distributing content from local network storage as well as from a large number of streaming services, including some specifically designed for commercial use, such as SoundMachine, Custom Channels, QSIC and internet radio stations.
A pair of BSP speakers can also be used in stereo configuration and multiple speakers in a room in either mono or stereo configurations. Use of either BSP model in a larger BluOS system is also possible, allowing for grouping into user-definable groups of whatever size is required with other BSP speakers and/or any other connected Bluesound Professional players, amplified players or network speakers on the network in an installation.
Both models utilize a 1” HF driver while the BSP1000 features a 6.5” LF driver and the BSP500 utilizes a 5.25” woofer. Each is powered by a high-efficiency amplifier including a low power standby mode. The LF driver on BSP1000 is port-loaded with a provided port plug for outdoor use. The frequency response of the BSP1000 is 45 Hz-23 kHz (63 Hz – 23 kHz for the BSP500) and the THD+N of either model is 0.095% at full-rated power.
An integral bracket allows for wall mounting with 90 degrees of swivel and 170 degrees of rotation possible. IP65 rating allows for either indoor or outdoor use.
“At Bluesound Professional, our focus is to combine exceptional sound quality with unique flexibility and convenience for both the installer and their customers”, explained Graeme Harrison, Vice President and General Manager for Bluesound Professional. “Of course, reliability of the components as well as the BluOS operating system is also paramount so the brand is all about testing and continuous improvement.”
