BSP500

Network Streaming Speaker

The Bluesound Professional BSP500 is a network active loudspeaker with integrated streaming capability designed specifically for use in either indoor or outdoor commercial installations. This unit is powered by Power over Ethernet(PoE) allowing a one-wire connection to the speaker for both power and audio. The player in the BSP500 is based on the established BluOS platform and 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 QSIC, Custom Channels, SoundMachine and internet radio stations. As well as stand-alone use, it is possible to use a pair of BSP500 speakers in stereo configuration and multiple BSP500’s in a room in either mono or stereo configurations. Use of the BSP500 in a larger BluOS system is also possible, allowing for grouping into user-definable groups of whatever size is required with other BSP500 units and/or any other connected Bluesound Professional players, amplified players or network speakers on the network in an installation.

The loudspeaker features a 5.25” LF driver and a 1” HF driver powered by a high efficiency amplifier including a low power standby mode. The frequency response of the speaker is 63Hz-23kHz and the THD+N of the system is 0.095% at full rated power. Access to content and power is via wired ethernet for glitch-free streaming. High efficiency electronics and drive units provide a maximum SPL of 100dB (using PoE++).

Control of the speaker can be accomplished by any Windows/Mac computer as well as any iOS/Android phone or tablets and the Bluesound Professional CP100 wall mount controller. Third party control is also possible with any of the leading systems. Security provisions prevent any un-authorized control of the system.

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.
