On the outside, the speakers stand out with their matte, integrated and slender baffle. The two-color design in black makassar ebony is a true optical highlight. The GLE series is technically impressive with its driver system and aluminum cone membranes, surrounds with wave technology and an aluminium tweeter system. These stand-out features have made the GLE series into one of the best-selling speaker ranges in Europe.

HiFi meets home theatre

Made for music and movie enjoyment: The high-quality stereo active speaker set with Bluetooth interface and integrated Virtual Surround with HDMI is a true all-rounder for the living room.

With 300 watts of system power, aluminum mid / bass system and aluminum manganese tweeter system, the 3-way bass reflex system is a perfect stereo powered speaker set - for music and TV sound: The GLE 496.2 Active BT Set guarantees optimal speech intelligibility, impressive spaciousness and powerful bass.

Connection options and functions

The GLE 496.2 Active BT Set works according to the master / slave principle. The master in this case is the speaker with the display in the front and the amplifier electronics and a Speakon jack on the back of the case. The slave speaker is the speaker without an integrated display in the front and with a Speakon jack on the back of the case. The master in your stereo setup is the left speaker, the slave is the right speaker. In addition to 3 HDMI inputs (with 3D, 4K) and one HDMI output (with ARC), the GLE 496.2 Active BT Active System has an optical digital input, a coaxial digital input and an analog RCA input. If required, an external subwoofer can be operated via the Sub-Out output. The speaker system can be controlled by its own or the remote control of your TV. All remote control functions of the GLE 496.2 Active BT can be trained in a few steps on the remote control codes of the TV set. That means: two devices, one remote control.

Thanks to the Bluetooth® interface and easy-pairing function, the Active Set also conquers the world of smartphones and tablet PCs. As a high-quality Bluetooth® speaker, it ensures the lossless transmission via apt-X® technology.
