Klipsch Powergate (Bluetooth connection)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I recently purchased two Klipsch Powergate amplifiers. First of all, they pack a punch and sound awesome. The issue I'm having is with Bluetooth connectivity. I'm using one of the amps to power a set of outdoor speakers and a sub. I'm able to connect to the amp easily, but the signal starts to cutout when I'm only 20 to 30 feet away from the amp. I've tested the connection on a few devices but am getting the same result. Has anyone else run into the same issue? Is there a firmware upgrade or any suggestions? 

 

Thanks!

20-30 feet sounds about normal with the few devices i have used, even less with walls between the signal.

There are three different class specifications for bluetooth implementations, with the class 2 spec being the most widely implemented for household goods (headphones, speakers, etc.). The Class 2 spec calls for transmitting at 2.5mW and has a maximum range of 10 meters or roughly 33 feet. If you need more range you can look into getting a bluetooth repeater.

I usually just run my PowerGate streaming via Wifi. I haven’t had an issue with the Bluetooth but as stated I use the WiFi more
