Bluesound Professional announces the launch of the new BSW150 network active subwoofer for commercial spaces that’s outfitted with BluOS app control and available in both black and white finishes.
The BSW150 offers streaming capability and is designed for applications such as boardrooms and smaller commercial establishments, with several installation options. It’s based on the BluOS platform and can be network paired with other Bluesound Professional loudspeakers or streamers to form a system 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. In addition, it can be connected to other equipment through its line input.
The subwoofer has an 8-inch low-frequency driver powered by a 150-watt amplifier that includes a low power standby mode. Frequency response is stated as 22 to 150 Hz. Inbuilt DSP allows for equalization as well as other audio processing. Access to content is via wired Ethernet or WiFi.
Control can be accomplished by any Windows or Mac computer as well as any iOS/Android phone or tablets, the Bluesound Professional CP100 wall mount controller and many third-party control systems. Users can customize volume, crossover and phase control directly in the BluOS Controller app. Security provisions are intended to prevent unauthorized control.
“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.”
