Home Theatre Grouping With A Powernode

As of BluOS version 3.8.0, the BluOS app now supports Home Theatre Grouping with the Powernode in addition to the Pulse Soundbar and Pulse Flex. While only the Powernode 2i with HDMI can be used for your front left and right channels, any Powernode (Powernode, Powernode 2, Powernode 2i without HDMI and Powernode 2i with HDMI) can be used as the rear left and right channels in a Home Theatre Group.

With this new functionality, there are even more ways to customize your BluOS surround sound listening experience. Below is a complete list of compatible players for both the front and rear channels of a Home Theatre Group.

Compatible Front Channels
Compatible Rear Channels
Powernode 2i with HDMI Pulse Flex
Pulse Soundbar 2i Pulse Flex 2i
Pulse Soundbar
Powernode 2
Powernode 2i without HDMI
- Powernode 2i with HDMI

When using a pair of Pulse Flex speakers as your rear channels, they are not required to be the same generation. This means a Pulse Flex 2i can be used as the rear right channel with a Pulse Flex configured as the rear left channel.

Creating Fixed Groups


  • An external audio input will need to be connected to the player acting as the front channels
