Bluesound Wireless Hi-Res Powered Subwoofer
Wireless Powered Subwoofer
Bluesound Pulse Sub: The Pulse Sub is designed to be used with an existing Bluesound system. You can wirelessly connect directly to a Pulse Soundbar (sold separately), or to other Bluesound products using Bluesound's wireless sub adapter (RT100; sold separately). The Pulse Sub accentuates the already immersive experience created by the Pulse Soundbar and other Bluesound components.
Wireless or Wired Connection: The Pulse Sub wirelessly pairs over WiFi with the Pulse Soundbar or Bluesound's wireless sub adapter using the free Bluesound Controller App for Apple iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac. The Pulse Sub is also equipped with a LFE and stereo RCA input for a hardwired connection to the Bluesound Soundbar or practically any soundbar or AV receiver with an LFE/sub output. It can even be hardwired to the headphone output of a Bluesound speaker using a minijack-to-RCA adapter. In addition, there is a LFE and stereo RCA output for daisy-chaining two Bluesound Pulses together for even bigger bass performance.
6.5" Woofer with 100 Watt Amplifier: The Bluesound Pulse Sub features a 6.5" polypropylene cone woofer with an elliptical rubber surround. The woofer is driven by a built-in 100 watt (RMS) / 200 watt (Peak) Class D amplifier. The Pulse Sub can produce low frequencies between 26Hz to 150Hz (+/-3dB).
Sub Controls: The Bluesound Pulse Sub provides Volume (0-10) Crossover (50-150Hz), and Phase controls (0-180°). These controls can be operated from the free Bluesound Controller App on your Apple iOS/Android device or Windows/Mac computer. These same controls can also be found on the Pulse Sub's enclosure, hidden behind a rubber cover.
Room Friendly Design: While many powered subwoofers can be quite large and not fit very well in the typical living room, the Pulse Sub offer a room friendly design with several clever installation options. The Pulse Sub is both slim and compact with a low-profile rectangular shape. It is designed to fit beside, underneath, or behind living room furniture. The Pulse Sub can easily be tucked away and still produce incredible bass without distortion.
Mounting Options: The Bluesound Pulse Sub can simply be placed on the floor or mounted to a wall using the including wall-mount brackets (screws not included). The pre-installed mounting feet will need to be removed when using the included wall-mount bracket to mount the Pulse Sub to a wall.
Power Requirements: The Bluesound Pulse Sub includes a detachable 6' AC power cord which will need to be plugged into an AC wall outlet or surge protector (sold separately).
Auto On/Standby: The Pulse Sub can be set to automatically turn on and off when it senses an audio signal. You can also choose to manually turn the powered sub on and off.
Wireless Multiroom Audio
Bluesound Wireless High-Resolution Audio Eco-System: The Pulse Sub is part of Bluesound's wireless high-resolution audio eco-system. The Bluesound wireless high-resolution audio eco-system consists of music players, amplifiers, hard-drives, and wireless speakers to playback your high-res and low-res music files, along with your favorite online music services throughout your home using your home's WiFi network. With an advanced WiFi antenna design and blazing ARM Cortex9 Processors, Bluesound ensures a solid connection in every corner of your home. Play your music in perfect sync or play different music simultaneously to any Bluesound device in any room.
Note: Up to 16 Bluesound devices can be connected in a strictly wireless environment. If you want to connect more than 16 Bluesound devices, you will need to connect the Bluesound devices to your network using a wired connection. Bluesound can then control up to 64 devices in a strictly wired environment.
Wired or Wireless Network Connection: Bluesound components can be connected to your home network and Internet provider via a hardwired Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45) jack connector or wireless WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) connection. Either network/internet connection allows you to stream music from your Windows or Mac computer and NAS drive (such as the Bluesound Vault, sold separately); as well as stream select online music services.
Note: Bluesound operates only on 2.4GHz WiFi (not 5GHz).
Bluesound Controller App: The free Bluesound Controller App turns your Apple iOS (7.0+) iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android (OS 4.0+) smartphone/tablet, Windows (Vista or higher) PC or Mac (O X 10.7+) computer into a full-featured remote control for the Bluesound wireless music system. The Bluesound Controller App on your compatible device uses your home's WiFi network to connect with Bluesound devices, so you can play all the music you love anywhere in your home for a wireless multiroom music experience. Get on-demand access to your music libraries on your home network, stream live Internet radio from almost any place in the world, or listen to one of the many music services available on Bluesound, all from the palm of your hand with the easy-to-use Bluesound Controller App.
Supported Music Formats: The Bluesound wireless audio system supports both low-res and high-res audio files; including MP3, AAC, WMA, OGG, FLAC, ALAC, WMA Lossless, MQA, WAV, and AIFF. Bluesound has been designed to work with today's larger music collections, and has indexed libraries up to 100,000 songs in demonstrated practice (this will depend on the music's metadata & artwork). Bluesound also offers gapless playback by default for all supported file music types.
Notes: Bluesound cannot index or play AAC files with the extension ".m4p". These files were purchased in iTunes prior to 2009 and are subject to copy protection. Apple Consumers with an iTunes Match subscription can delete and re-download these files free of charge from their iTunes Cloud
MQA (Master Quality Authenticated): Bluesound is the first wireless multiroom audio system to support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated). MQA is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that captures and delivers master quality audio in a file that's small enough to stream or download. Bluesound worked closely with MQA to implement technology inside each Bluesound component to ensure the listener will hear MQA encoded music and streams exactly like the source and the way the artist intended you to hear it when it was approved in the studio.
Note: MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) support will require a firmware update.
Online Music Services: With a network and internet connection, Bluesound lets you access select online music services & internet radio. The Bluesound Controller app on your Apple iOS or Android device will serve as the controller for these apps and provide song/artist information with Album Art.
Note: Availability of online music services may vary by region. Not all services may be available at time of purchase. Some services may be added or discontinued from time to time based on decisions of the music service providers or others.
Computer Audio: The Bluesound wireless music system will pull music from an existing digital music library across the network on your Windows PC or Mac computer using Windows or SMB File Sharing (SAMBA) and the Bluesound Controller App for Windows & Mac.
Alexa & Google Assistant Voice Control: Bluesound will support Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control through an over-the-network firmware update (now available). Using an Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant enabled device (sold separately - see Accessories Tab), you can use your voice to access your music libraries on your local network, select presets from online music services, control music playback functions such as Play/Pause/Skip, adjust volume levels, play music in different rooms, and even group rooms together. Each Alexa voice command will need to start with the phrase "Alexa or Google, ask Blue Voice to" or "Alexa or Google, tell Blue Voice to". Alexa and Google Skills for BluOS will need to be setup through the Amazon Alexa app (for Apple iOS 11.0+ or Android OS 4.4+) or the Google Home App (for Apple iOS 11.0+ and Android OS 5.0+ ).
Optional Remote Control: The Bluesound RC1 (sold separately) is an IR remote control for Bluesound Gen 2 and Gen 2i speakers, streamers, and amplifiers running BluOS 3.6.2 or later. The BLS RC1 remote gives you convenient control over your Bluesound component with simple setup. Its streamlined button layout and dedicated controls let you easily control playback without having to use the BluOS Controller app on your smartphone or tablet. Plus, with the Bluesound BLS RC1 remote control, you can set-up and program up to 10 presets inside the BluOS Controller app and enjoy your favorite albums, playlists, and radio stations with a single touch of the remote.
