When thinking about Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers for your home, there is plenty to consider before installing, and before even purchasing.
Not every system is the same in terms of style and function, and you may need to weigh up the options of how many speakers you require for the space where you want to install.
Our short-list of considerations will hopefully help find the right system for you.
Ceiling speakers, in general, allow you to fill whatever room with fantastic audio. Installing speakers into your ceiling space, has another advantage, as it keeps everything out of the way, and you will hardly notice them when you walk into the room - thanks to ceiling speakers, gone are the days of chunky obtrusive Hi-Fi speakers on tabletops or side cabinets.
Once you combine this with an audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, then you can greatly expand your audio experience at home. The ability to play your own personal music, or even through music streaming apps via your personal smartphone or tablet's Bluetooth pairing, means almost an unlimited supply of music straight into your home.
Size of room / speakers
The size of room and speakers, and the number of speakers, play a significant part of the decision you will need to make before purchasing.
You will be needing to cut holes into your ceiling at some point, so it is better to get this decision right now rather than needing to make changes and alterations at a later date.
Think about what you wish to do with your audio system. Is this for your own personal needs in your kitchen or bathroom, or will you be looking to host dinner parties and functions where audio will almost become the centre piece itself?
We have 2.5", 5" and 6" speaker sizes available, and can either work in a single pair or in two pairs, again dependant on the size of room you wish to install these in.
Functionally, every product with Bluetooth connectivity works in the same way - once active, you can search to pair your device and once paired, your personal choice of audio can play away without worry.
Our Bluetooth products are all class 2 devices with a transmit power of 2.5Mw, meaning the intended range to pair your smartphone or tablet, is around ten metres (33 feet). Factors to consider are if there are any obstructions in the way between the receiver and your device, such as doors or walls - this again can have an effect on the loss of sound quality if multiple objects are in the way.
Many of our Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker Systems allow for additional sources, so for instance, stereo phono connections or 3.5mm jack leads can be connected for other devices that may not have Bluetooth connectivity. Alongside that, many of our systems also include DAB and/or FM radio tuners, so if you are looking to perhaps just listen to your favourite radio station, you can also achieve this as well.
With Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers, depending upon which system you choose, they will differ in appearance.
You have three main options of style to choose from; an in-wall control panel (many variations of style), a remote control system (KB iSelect), or you even have the option of a Tenor Illuminated Bluetooth mirror with its ability to expand and use an external ceiling speaker.
With our in-wall panels, they vary in colour and style, but have all been designed with home surroundings in mind, wherever you decide to install your system. The E200 system requires a separate Bluetooth receiver to be present, but at the size similar to that of a small internet router, it can be hidden very easier. However, take into consideration the need for this receiver to be within range of your Bluetooth device to work.
The discreet nature of the KB iSelect remote means that you will hardly notice that it is in your room at all, which for minimalist rooms is a fantastic quality. It is simple to use and relieves the need of being in control of your Bluetooth device at all times, as all the control comes from the iSelect remote.
Having a Tenor mirror installed will of course stand out, but is a unique product to deliver audio and save space. It's a great talking point too if you are hosting guests, but it is sleek in style and not overbearing. Connecting the additional stereo speaker with this product gives you that greater depth of audio beyond the internal stereo speakers. The illuminated lighting can be controlled to turn off and on, but again, if fully recessed, will need rewiring and connected either with a pull cord or a separate switch. This is outlined in the user manual that accompanies the product.
There is plenty to evaluate when it comes to Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers, but hopefully now that you have worked your way through the four main aspects, that you can head over to the main BuyCleverStuff website and be able to select your perfect solution for your bathroom that little bit easier.
