What is it?
More than just bluetooth ceiling speakers, KB Sound Select BT is a discreet audio system, perfectly designed for in-ceiling or in-wall installations, offering superb sound quality that is ‘almost invisible’.Select BT comprises of a discreet module with integrated FM radio and Bluetooth receiver, designed to be hidden away in a ceiling or wall void. We prefer to separate the module from the speakers (unlike some other integrated Bluetooth speakers) as this allows for simpler maintenance, optional upgrades, and not least, the option to use other speakers of your choice.
A pair of recessed speakers are also included (it is always best to have a ‘pair’ of speakers, rather than a single speaker, to give the true stereo sound the music deserves). Two size options are available. The smaller 2.5” speakers offer a very discreet option for the smaller rooms (bathroom, en suite, utility) and blend in perfectly with downlights. The larger 5” speakers offer a ‘fuller sound’ for larger rooms where a richer tone and heavier bass are required. Simply choose a kit with the speaker size required.
How does it work?
Select BT is controlled via a free APP (IOS and Android compliant), allowing full wireless control of functions from your smart device.
Simply download the free app to your device, pair your Bluetooth and away you go. Select the function required from either FM radio or Bluetooth streaming. Volume and equalizer settings are all controlled within the APP and there is also a function to preset your favourite FM radio station. Having an integrated FM radio is very useful for radio fans out there as this is not relying on any data, merely picking up FM reception through the airwaves. Bluetooth streaming operates through the APP, select the music you want to play (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon music, Youtube, etc) and simply stream through the system.
Is it easy to install?
Select BT is very easy to install. Once the holes have been cut out to accommodate the recessed speakers, simply connect the module to the mains supply (either plug in directly or wire through the lighting circuit). The module is usually situated in the ceiling or wall void behind one of the speaker cut-outs to allow for easy access. Speaker cable (supplied in the box) is then connected from the module to each of the speakers. A plug-in FM wire antenna is also supplied and simply connects to the module. For optimum reception, a full FM aerial may be required, mounted in the loft or on the roof. Pop in the speakers, download the free APP, pair your device to the system….and away you go!
