Now your music system can be seamlessly integrated into any room with the new and innovative range of wireless Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers from Lithe Audio. Designed to enable simple audio streaming from any Bluetooth-enabled transmitting device such as a smartphone or tablet, their range of ceiling speakers combine the amplifier, Bluetooth receiver and speaker driver into a single, compact and easy to install unit. They feature Bluetooth V4.0 connectivity and a stereo RCA/phono input for connection of an external audio source, such as a TV, CD player or Wi-Fi streamer like the Google Chromecast.
You can enjoy any content from your Bluetooth device, including Spotify, YouTube, iPlayer, Deezer and more. Anything that plays music through your phone can be played through the speakers.
You'll be able to listen to your music in high quality from any Bluetooth device from up to 10 metres away. It's an all in one solution, all you need to do is add power and pair the speakers with your Bluetooth device.
As a pair they are configurable to offer either stereo as a 'left and right' pair, or a bridged mono output, so both left and right audio channels are produced from both speakers. This is done via a simple switch at the back of the unit during installation. The audio output can also be pre-set to a level of 50% in order to limit the volume of the speakers, for example in children's rooms or hotel rooms.
The active speaker requires mains power, and requires connecting to the passive speaker with an included 5m length of speaker cable.
The speaker has a protective metal grill that can be spray painted, allowing it to seamlessly blend into the décor of your room. A rapid-mount system makes installation easy and fast, and once connected to a Bluetooth device, the speaker's integrated device memory will then allow instant audio playback on each future use.
The Lithe Audio range of speakers are ideal for almost any room of the house, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms and there is even an IP44-rated model suitable for bathroom installations (zone 3).
They are very easy to install as they can be connected to your local lighting circuit (by a qualified electrician) or to a standard UK socket with the plug in adapter.
We supply the speakers without any PIN function in order to enable compatibility with the Amazon Echo Dot, which will allow you hands-free voice control of the music.
However, we can supply the speakers with a PIN installed should you require the additional security that this offers, for example within apartment buildings or hotels. If you require a PIN then please select this option when ordering, as this requires the speaker to be reprogrammed.
We can also re-name the speakers (for a reprogramming fee of £12 including VAT) which also helps you to differentiate between multiple pairs when installed in the same building. If you would like us to rename your speakers then please contact us.
As is usual with bluetooth connectivity, the transmission range is limited to approximately 10m unobstructed however this will decrease if connectivity is required over greater distances or through walls or building structures.
