Top 5 Kitchen Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker Systems for Under £300 [2022]

Top 5 Kitchen Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker Systems for Under £300 [2022]

Craig Walker |

The kitchen for some is the center of the home, where the whole family gathers to discuss their activities and plans for the day. Whether your cooking, cleaning or just enjoying some time in your new kitchen, make it even better with your favorite songs playing in the background. 

The best way to enjoy music in a kitchen without taking up any counter space is to install a ceiling speaker system. They can come with different types of features, however, the easiest to use is Bluetooth since you can wirelessly stream music from your phone or smart device to the Bluetooth ceiling speaker system.

I have been designing kitchen audio systems for 4 years now and here is my top 5 Bluetooth ceiling speaker systems that I would recommend to my customers.

 e-audio 15W 5.25" Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System

5 - E-audio 15W 5.25" Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System £79.99

This budget entry level system is a simple to use bluetooth speaker system that is fully wireless. The amplifier can be hidden into the ceiling recess and then simply connect your smart device to play music. It offers average volume and adequate quality for basic background music.

Pros

  • Great value for money
  • 15w per channel

Cons

  • Low powered
  • 2 Speakers max
  • 5.25" Speakers

KB Sound In Wall BT Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System

4 - KB Sound Mando In Wall Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System From £149.99

This Bluetooth ceiling speaker system comes with its own wall panel which is the size of a light switch. There is a button on the front to pair the Bluetooth, and also features a front 3.5mm audio input for plugging into it from devices such as a turntable, jukebox, tv, computer and much more.

Pros

  • In wall panel
  • 2.5" - 5" Speakers

Cons

  • Smaller speakers
  • 2 Speakers max
  • 2.5W Per Channel

Tangent Ampster BT II HiFi Bluetooth Amplifier inc. 6.5" HD Ceiling

3 - Tangent Ampster BT II HiFi Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System £299.99

Although this is ranked 3rd, it is my highest powered system in this list with 50W per channel! This amplifier will need to be located somewhere within the room, and we would recommend near the TV if you have one. This unit has bluetooth, along with an optical for TV and other AUX input for other devices.

Pros

  • 50W Per Channel
  • Alexa / Google Compatible 
  • 6.5" HD Ceiling speakers
  • Auto Wake on

Cons

  • Amplifier needs a location

Systemline E50 6.5" Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System

2 - Systemline E50 6.5" Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker System £249.99

The E50 is another in wall panel speaker system, however, the E50 can handle upto 4 speakers which is perfect for those larger rooms. As well as bluetooth you also have the front facing 3.5mm jack for plugging directly into it. This system is loud enough to entertain guests and still offers good quality background music!

This unit also has a rear 3.5mm jack for wiring in a TV and also features gesture control, allowing you to change the volume or music with just a hand movement.

Pros

  • 18W Per Channel
  • Alexa / Google Compatible 
  • Gesture Control
  • 6.5" Ceiling speaker

Cons

  • Extra wiring involved 

Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers with aptX BT 5.0 - 6.5" - Alexa

1 - Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers with aptX BT 5.0 £299

This is my favourite system because it has a powerful 50W amplifier built into the speaker itself, Bluetooth 5.0 with a 30 metre range and renaming capabilities. The sound quality is great and is a perfect system for partying with guests.

Because the amplifier is built onto one of the speakers, wiring is also super simple. Power one and wire to the other and your ready to start listen to music through your new bluetooth ceiling speaker system.

This is the only system I have in my arsenal that can wirelessly connect to a TV via Bluetooth, this is thanks to the special low latency chip built into the Bluetooth. 

Pros

  • 50W Built in Amplifier 
  • Alexa / Google Compatible
  • 6.5" Ceiling speaker
  • Wireless TV Connection

Cons

  • Harder to change system in future 

BONUS DUAL ZONE SYSTEMS

Speaker systems for Large Kitchen and Dining room areas

Since the 70's it's been a luxury to have an open planned kitchen that encompassed the dining room and sometimes even a living space. If you have joined 2 or more rooms together or you have a large open space then sometimes you'll need extra control.

I would recommend these systems if you have an area around 10m x 5m or large as this allows you to turn on or off sets of speakers as a 'Sub Zone'.

Systemline E50 Bluetooth Speaker System with 4 x 6.5" Ceiling Speakers & In Wall Selector Switch

1 - Systemline E50 4 speakers system with in wall selector switch £338.99

This E50 system comes with 4 speakers as standard and a in wall selector switch that will allow you to turn on or off each pair of speaker. This is handy for split rooms where you don't want the sound playing in one area at that time.

Tangent Ampster BT II Bluetooth Speaker System with 4 x 6.5" Ceiling Speakers & In Wall Selector Switch 

2 - Tangent Ampster 4 speaker system with in wall selector switch £379.99

Just like above, this system and in wall switch allows you to turn on and off each pair of speakers. The Ampster comes with 50W per channel and offers more power per speaker compared to the E50. 

Tangent Ampster BT II 6 Speaker Bluetooth System with Q Install Ceiling Speakers

3 - Tangent Ampster 6 speaker system with QED speaker selector switch £749

One of my favorite systems to quote for anyone that has a really large space they want to cover with background music, this will cover roughly an area of 75 sqm. That's generally your kitchen, dining and living space.

The freestanding selector switch has 3 buttons on which connect the 3 pairs of speakers to the music. Simply play your music to the system and click which set of speakers you want playing!
