A rather complete set of experimental data of the (1−x)Ba0.5Sr0.5TiO3xMg3B2O6 system were provided, and the dielectric (DE) properties dependences on the volume fraction of Mg3B2O6 phase were extensively investigated. The results showed that below the solution limit of Mg2+, the DE constant and loss tangent were substantially reduced, in comparison with that of pure Ba0.5Sr0.5TiO3. With the increasing volume fractions of Mg3B2O6 inclusion, the DE constant decreased monotonously, nevertheless, the tunability of composites had no significant variations from 21.5% to 18.9% under an applied electric field of 30 kV/cm in a wide range up to 67 vol%, and above the percolation threshold (67 vol%), we observed an obvious drop of the tunabilities of composite system. These results are in accordance with the prediction of the modeled results of ferroelectric–DE composites in a spherical inclusion model.
