any one have any recommendations? Customer wants them installed in block of flats that I’m doing....I’ve tried persuading them it’s a bit of a waste of money considering what it’s going to cost over 15 flats by the time you include the price of the speaker, fire hood and labour it’s not going to be cheap per unit. Just going to install one speaker per flat in the kitchen/living room. Obviously being flats each speaker needs a unique Bluetooth sync code other wise someone in another flat will be able to sync to a speaker in another flat. Any one had this situation before and what did you use?

Could you not convince the client to have a wired speaker instead so that they can use either their own hi-fi (do people still own these?), or other audio device to connect to it?

Do they have to be bluetooth?
If i was you id wire one or two speaker with good quality speaker cable back to router/switch position and let the buyer install there own network amp. Developer just installing carcus for the set up imo.

Sonos CONNECT Network Player - White - https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/product/10782411014965167730/image?q=sonos+amplifier&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari&prds=cid:10782411014965167730,sgro:iv,cs:1&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjVmdn2vILdAhWLKcAKHdfrCZQQ-K4BCEU

These sonos network amps are very good but not cheap especially to be installing x15.

This may intrest you more though a wall mount bluetooth amplifier ticks all the boxes and lools the part & affordable.

Sonos is the way to go. Best on the market by far.

The good point about them being run via a router than BT is that phonecalls do not stop music playing.

I do.... It's in the garage and hasn't been used in about 12 years...

you want speakers with codes/pins on otherwise every tom dick and harry will connect to them, I had a neighbour connect to my speaker and first i new was when the rolling stones started playing out of it.! I can connect as of this moment to a couple of bluetooth speakers in my building, its not very secure and a bit of a fad in all honesty.
if you set a pin only the occupier can use it.

I’ve fitted plenty of Sonos but it’s not really a suitable setup for these flats. Speakers, sonos amp, sonos bridge and fire hoods would be about £800-£900 a flat on material alone.
