Any way to bluetooth powered subs and tops?

Guys, is there anything available now for this please, to play music directly from your phone to the powered speakers without any equipment in between ?

Quite a lot of active speakers have Bluetooth options. I think it will get more complex with subs.

Yes I am aware that there are tops nothing bigger than 12" though which is too small. If a 15" powered speaker can be bluetooth that would at least be an option.

I am wondering if there might be some way to bluetooth a powered 12" top with an 18" sub though.

A couple of the Alto BT devices you linked to on he other thread would be ideal.

It looks like the turbosound ix12 or ix15 will do bluetooth in and then pass it along on an xlr daisy chain, so if you had your sub near your main, you could run an xlr between them to get both run off a bluetooth source. The ix's will also do bluetooth in stereo, so 2 ix12s or ix15s could each take a channel, and each could pass that to extra tops or subs

Plug the BT receivers into the subs and use the HPF link output to the tops.
