A Bluesound-powered outdoor system that blends into your landscape

This pre-configured bundle includes everything you need to create a weatherproof sound system that sounds great and blends into your outdoor decor. There's a Bluesound POWERNODE streamer/amplifier with a custom-fit weatherproof enclosure, two landscape-friendly speakers, and a pair of tough 25-foot cables. It all works together to bring impressive hi-fi sound to your yard, pool, or patio area.

Versatile streamer/amp in a weatherproof enclosure

The included Bluesound POWERNODE is the heart of the system. Built-in Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and Apple AirPlay® 2 let you let you stream high-res music and internet radio, giving you app-based control using your phone or tablet. A built-in 80-watt x 2 HybridDigital™ stereo amplifier delivers plenty of power for the included speakers. And you can expand your system into additional indoor zones with optional Bluesound/BluOS wireless speakers and components (up to 64 zones).

The included Coastal Source SAS160/2-BPNR enclosure is made from polycarbonate and stainless steel, so it can protect the POWERNODE in an outdoor installation. Its wall-mountable design features weatherproof external connection points for the amp and speakers. It boasts an ingress protection rating of IP68: that means the enclosure and connection points are "dust tight" and rated for complete, continuous submersion in water.

Outdoor speakers that complement your landscaping

The bundle includes two Coastal Source 8.0 Mini Ellipse Bollard speakers that are built to thrive in an outdoor environment. Each has a 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer and 1" titanium tweeter, and a form factor that is designed to look good in your outdoor space. The speaker provides 120° sound dispersion and covers 50-150 square feet in your outdoor listening area.

It can be mounted freestanding or partially buried, and there are screw holes in the base for direct hardscape mounting. Two 25-foot Coastal Source CC extension cables with proprietary Coastal Connectors™ are included.

Bluesound PowerNode
SAS160 Outdoor Enclosure
8.0 2-Way Mini Ellipse Bollard Speakers
Coastal Source 25' Extension Cables
Warranty Information


System Overview: The Coastal Source outdoor speaker system includes a Bluesound PowerNode 2-channel amplifier with wireless network connectivity, a Coastal Source SAS160 outdoor enclosure for the PowerNode, two Coastal Source 8.0 2-Way Mini Ellipse Bollard 6.5" outdoor speakers, and a pair of Coastal Source 25' speaker extension cables.

Bluesound PowerNode

PowerNode: The Bluesound PowerNode is a two-channel integrated amplifier with wireless network and multiroom audio capability. The PowerNode utilizes sate-of-the-art, audiophile-grade HybridDigital amplification and DAC technologies from NAD Electronics, as well as a state-of-the-are Quad-Core processor to bring dynamic power and high-current delivery to your high-resolution music experience, resulting in the ability to play louder than ever before, with zero-distortion precision audio performance.

  • HybridDigital Amplifier: The built-in HybridDigital amplifier is rated at 80 watts x 2 channels (into 8-ohm with 0.06% THD and 110dB signal-to-noise ratio) for rich, clear, and distortion free sound at any volume.
  • 32-Bit/384kHz DAC: The Bluesound PowerNode employs a premium 32-bit/384khz premium DAC to ensure that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision and clarity.
  • Quad-Core 1.8GHz Processor: The PowerNode features a powerful Quad-Core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex A53 chipset that processes audio 8x faster than previous generations of Bluesound components for power and speed required for the best wireless HiFi performance.

Speaker Setup Options: The Bluesound PowerNode integrated network amplifier can be used in a 2ch stereo music setup, 2.1ch stereo music application, or a 4.1ch home theater configuration (Dolby Digital).

  • Music Playback Add a pair of 8-ohm loudspeakers (sold separately) to the Bluesound PowerNode integrated network amplifier to create a 2ch stereo music setup. You can also add a pair of 8-ohm loudspeakers and the Bluesound Pulse Sub+ wireless powered subwoofer (all sold separately) to create a 2.1ch music setup.
  • Home Theater: Use two PowerNode integrated network amplifiers, two pair of 8-ohm loudspeakers, and one Bluesound Pulse Sub+ wireless powered subwoofer (all sold separately) to create a 4.1ch home theater. You can also also configure a 4.1ch home theater using one PowerNode integrated network amp, one pair of 8-ohm loudspeakers, one Bluesound Pulse Sub+ wireless powered subwoofer, and two Pulse Flex 2i speakers (all sold separately). The PowerNode supports Dolby Digital (not DTS).

Note: In a 4.1ch home theater configuration, the rear speakers will only output Dolby Digital content (they cannot be used for multiroom audio distribution).

BluOS Wireless High-Resolution Multiroom Audio: The Bluesound PowerNode is part of the BluOS wireless high-resolution multiroom audio eco-system - consisting of powered speakers, soundbar speakers, amplifiers, players, and hard-drives. The BluOS wireless high-resolution multiroom audio ecosystem uses your home's wired or wireless network to connect multiple Bluesound products and play your music in perfect sync, or different music simultaneously, anywhere in your home. Using advanced technologies, BluOS can wirelessly transmit lossless music up to 24-bit/192kHz at ultra-fast speeds with no lag and zero loss in sound quality.

  • Compatible Multiroom Audio Sources: The following audio sources can be used for multiroom audio playback - internet radio (including TuneIn & iHeart Radio); online music services (including Tidal, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer, Slacker, and Napster); Bluetooth & USB audio, music libraries (from computers and NAS drives); as well as analog & digital inputs (including HDMI & Optical).
  • Number of BluOS Zones: Up to 16 Bluesound devices can be connected in a strictly wireless environment. Demonstrated practice has shown that you can create up to 8 groups of 8 Bluesound devices or 4 groups of 16 Bluesound devices. 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. BluOS can then control up to 64 devices in a strictly wired environment.

Note: All generations of Bluesound and BluOS products can be used together in a wireless Hi-Res multiroom audio system.

Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The Bluesound PowerNode can be connected to your home network and Internet provider via a hardwired Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack connector or wireless 2.4/5GHz dual-band WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac connection. The 5GHz WiFi band offers a faster and more reliable connection with fewer interruptions and dropouts. Either network/internet connection allows you to stream music libraries from your Windows or Mac computer and NAS drive (such as the Bluesound Vault 2i, sold separately); as well as stream select online music services and internet radio.

  • Wired Ethernet Setup: A wired connection to the network is simple and requires no setup. If you wish to use the wired connection, simply connect the PowerNode directly to your router or home network using an Ethernet cable (sold separately).
  • Wireless WiFi Setup: A wireless connection allows you to place the BluOS component virtually anywhere inside your home, but does require setup through the BluOS app on your Apple iOS or Android device. If you are on a Windows PC (7/8/10) or Apple Mac, you'll use Bluesound's web browser based application. You'll be walked you through the set-up process step-by-step.
Note: A wireless network router will always be required for the BluOS Controller App.

High Resolution Audio: High-resolution audio tracks are either 24-bit/96kHz or 24-bit/192kHz, and contain up to 6.5x more data than standard CDs, letting you hear all the detail of your favorite music in superior quality. With full support for hi-res audio, you can stream WAV, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, WMA-Lossless, MQA music files over your home's WiFi network or directly from a connected USB mass storage class device. The Bluesound system also supports compressed music files such as MP3, AAC, WMA and OGG. Bluesound has been designed to work with today's larger music collections, and has indexed libraries up to 200,000 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.

Compression File Type Sampling Frequency Bit Rate or Bit Depth
Compressed Lossy MP3 16-48kHz 192-320 kbps
Lossless WMA-Lossless up to 96 kHz up to 24-bit
FLAC 192 kHz up to 24-bit
Uncompressed AIFF up 192 kHz up to 24-bit
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.

Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The Bluesound PowerNode is equipped with four binding post speaker terminals to connect a pair of loudspeakers. The terminals will accept single or dual banana plug connectors, or bare wire. The plastic terminal caps must first be removed in order to use banana plugs.

Wireless & Wired Sub Output: You can add up to two Bluesound Pulse Sub+ wireless powered subwoofers (sold separately; see Accessories Tab) to a single PowerNode network amplifier for bigger bass response. The PowerNode also features a mono-RCA subwoofer output for adding a powered sub. You can only use one of these types of sub outputs (not both). The wired and wireless subwoofer output features an adjustable low pass crossover that can be set Off or On in the BluOS Controller App.

  • Subwoofer Crossover Off: The subwoofer low pass crossover is fixed at 80Hz, while the main speaker outputs are full-range.
  • Subwoofer Crossover On: The subwoofer low pass crossover is adjustable from 40 to 200Hz, while the main speaker outputs are are high passed above the low pass crossover point setting.

Note: The Pulse Sub+ wireless powered subwoofer can only be used in a 2.1ch stereo music setup or for the front channels in a 4.1ch home theater setup (the Pulse sub+ cannot be used for the rear channels).

Headphone Output: A 3.5mm headphone jack is located on the front of the PowerNode for private listening with a set of headphones. The dedicated headphone driver is rated 0.0055% THD @1kHz, 35mW. It is designed for use with most headphones, with a minimum impedance of 14 ohms. The PowerNode's output will be muted when headphones are connected.

AC Power: The Bluesound PowerNode operates off of standard household current using it's internal power supply and the supplied 6.5' detachable AC power cord.

Mounting Options: The Bluesound PowerNode can simply rest on a table-top, shelf, stand, or other piece of furniture.

8.0 2-Way Mini Ellipse Bollard Speakers

Speaker Overview: The Coastal Source 8.0 2-Way Mini Ellipse Bollard (EB82W6.5BN) is a full-range speaker designed for in-ground and above-ground installations where directional sound is desired with a simplistic contemporary style.

Construction: The 8.0 Mini Ellipse Bollard 2-way speaker features a 6.5" woofer and a 1" Titanium dome tweeter with an articulating mount that lets you aim the tweeter for optimum performance. Both drivers are housed in a durable fiberglass enclosure designed for outdoor use. The Mini Ellipse Bollard can provide a wide 120˚ of sound dispersion that can cover between 50 and 150 sq. ft. of listening area.

Power & Connections: The 8.0 Mini Ellipse Bollard features a pair of male CC (Coastal Connector) input connectors for connection to the PowerNode amplifier using the included Coastal Connection cables. Each cable features threaded connectors designed to provide a watertight connection that's rated for direct-burial.

Installation: The 8.0 Mini Ellipse Bollard speaker can be either landscape or hardscape installed. For landscape installations, the speaker can be installed in-ground with the woofer and mid/tweeter grilles exposed. Optional Landscape Stakes and a Theft Guard (both sold separately) can be used to mount the speaker above-ground while maintaining a stable installation. The 8.0 Mini Ellipse Bollard can also be hardscape mounted to flat surfaces. Optional Isolation Spikes (sold separately) allow the speaker to safely sit on a hard surface, while a Hardscape Mount bracket (sold separately) allows the speaker to sit inside a recessed mounting area of a flat surface.
