The Lithe Audio 6.5" Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker (Master with or without Slave) brings wireless Bluetooth audio into your home like never before, with no need for running copious amounts of speaker cable, and simple installation and even simpler control thanks to it being one complete speaker.
Selecting just the Master speaker, you can have forced mono-stereo sound to fill small and thin rooms.
If you want to fill larger rooms, then take advantage of using both the Master and passive Slave speaker to really bring a space alive in your home - and new for 2018, Lithe Audio's Lithe-Link to have a maximum of 3 master and 3 passive set-up!
A 2-way, 1.2" Titanium directional tweeter found within the 6.5" Kevlar woven woofer cone, driven by an incredible 50W RMS of power from the built-in rear amplifier within the Master speaker; this high performance, built-in Bluetooth ceiling speaker system will change the way you integrate audio in your home for years to come.
The strengthened Kevlar cone, in both the Master and Slave, holds its shape when subject to high power yield, yet fast and precise response due to its low mass. That, as well as its ability to produce smooth uncoloured mid-tones from its woven textured design, and the high quality rubber-edged surround ensures that the woofers will stand the test of time giving you performance and confidence in a product built to last.
With frameless design, the 3mm thin front grille will attach magnetically and attractively with little protrusion and minimalist design which can still be painted over to match with the colour of your ceiling if you wish to do so.
It can be powered to mains or can instead be run off a lighting circuit - giving you freedom to install in a number of rooms and in a number of ways, if you want it constantly powered, or as an when you want it via a switch.
Whilst there is an IP certified version of this product, this standard speaker is able to be installed within a bathroom environment on condition of having sufficient extraction of any moisture or condensation via an extractor fan. The IP rated version is only ever really advised for designated and dedicated wetrooms or when it is positioned directly above a water source.
Purchasing two or more of these Master speakers, and they are being placed into the same property? You may require them to be renamed.
Bluetooth has a range of ten metres, however, these speakers are as default named "Lithe Audio BT" on your Bluetooth device list, so there is potential to connect to an incorrect speaker if not renamed.
If this is the case, please select renaming option above. Please be aware any renaming may place a delay of a day for delivery, however we will make every effort if your order is placed before 2pm to have this dispatched on our free next working day delivery service.
Also consider, if purchasing two or three Masters, to connect them via the Lithe-Link method giving you scope for alternate set-ups - perfect for either large open plan rooms to play altogether or connections to 'zone' speakers on their own (see our product image or view the manual for more details).
After the speakers have been installed and switched on, it is easy to stream sound from any app on your smartphone or tablet device, for instance, Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Amazon Prime Music and radio applications, for example, BBC iPlayer Radio or TuneIn Radio.
If you want to integrate the Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker with an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot device and use Alexa, make sure you select the Echo Compatible option. Otherwise for standard use without using Amazon Echo, the speaker will be PIN-protected with a four-digit code. Please note, it is not possible to change this feature should you wish in the future.
Incorporating other sound sources, for example, TV or CD players, in fact anything that can connect via RCA to the rear of the master Bluetooth ceiling speaker means you can fully enjoy not just Bluetooth audio, but a range of other audio sources which you currently enjoy.
