The new Bluesound Professional BSP1000 and BSP500 speakers were presented on the Italian market, PoE models that offer important connection functions. Both, in fact, incorporate integrated streaming capabilities specifically designed for commercial installations, both indoors and outdoors, thanks to the IP65 classification.

As well as stand-alone use, it is possible to use a pair of BSP speakers in stereo configuration and multiple speakers in a room in either mono or stereo configurations. Use of either BSP model in a larger BluOS system is also possible, allowing for grouping into user-definable groups of whatever size is required with other BSP speakers and/or any other connected Bluesound Professional players, amplified players or network speakers on the network in an installation.
Both models utilize a 1” HF driver while the BSP1000 features a 6.5” LF driver and the BSP500 utilizes a 5.25” woofer. Each is powered by a high efficiency amplifier including a low power standby mode. The LF driver on BSP1000 is port loaded with a provided port plug for outdoor use. The frequency response of the BSP1000 is 45Hz-23kHz(63Hz – 23kHz for the BSP500).
