QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Dennis Tuohy from Daly City, CA on September 19, 2012
do these speakers have to have protection from the elements
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 19, 2012

Answer:
Hi Dennis,
The AP640 patio speaker has a ported design and should be installed under eaves. If your application calls for direct exposure, we recommend the AP525s as an alternative.

I want to replace Bose 151 speakers which say on them "Compatible with Amplifiers or receivers rated 10 - 100 watts/channel rated 4 to 8 ohms IEC 50W continuous 6 ohms" will these AP 640 speakers replace them? Will still be using my Bose system amp.
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 19, 2012

Answer:
Hi Dennis,
The AP640 is an 8-ohm speaker. As long as the amp is rated for 8-ohm speakers and has enough power, it should work fine.

when will this item be in stock?
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 3, 2012

Answer:
Hi Nim,
The AP640 will be available at the end of the month. As an alternative, take a look at the AP650. They are the top of the line in the 6.5" size. I have a pair myself and can't recommend them enough. The sound quality is superb.

im building a patio, and i want to put two speakers, one on left side and one on right side as you walk out to patio from house. what do i need besides these speakers? if possible i would like receiver outside installed flushed in wall.
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 2, 2012

Answer:
Hi Mark,

For a basic outdoor patio system, we recommend a pair of patio speakers placed 8 to 10 feet apart, somewhere protected from the direct elements. A nice addition is an outdoor volume control like our OSD-OVC300. The source can be a small 2 channel receiver like the Sherwood RX4105 or one of our 2- Channel Power Amplifiers like our OSD-AMP120. You can plug in your iPod, iPhone or connect directly to a computer for unlimited choices of streaming content or iTunes Library. Your speaker placement will be based upon accessibility to the speaker wire from your source. We also offer new WPA-650 Wireless Patio Speakers as an option but you still have to find a place to connect the power supply (AC outlet) and a speaker wire between the two patio speakers. I hope that helps and thank you for considering OSD branded products.

i have a set of bose 151 that are 4ohms that i want to relocate down by my pool and mount the AP640 under my overhang will i be able to run both sets of speakers at the same time with the ohm differance
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 13, 2012

Answer:
Hi Andy:

It really depends on the Amplifier/Receiver you are using. Typically if your connecting a 4 ohm speaker to Speaker A and a second pair of 8 ohm speakers to speaker B there is no problem when running either A or B. The problem arises when you decide to run A and B together. Both speakers are wired in parallel and create a 2.6 ohm (when run at the same time) load which unless you are utilizing our AMP200 or AMP300 both of which are High Current Amplifiers and 2 ohm stable.Note: you can tell immediately if an amp is 2 ohm stable when it has a 2 ohm power rating or states that it is 2 ohm stable. Most Receivers are rated at 8 ohm but can run a single 4 ohm speaker. For your application you may need to add an Impedance Matching Volume Control like our OVC300 to connect both speakers together. Note, the BOSE 4 ohm would count as 2. Add that to the 8 ohm pair (counts as 1) for a multiplier of 3. Your three choices on the Volume Control are 1/2x-4x-8x. There is no setting for 3 so you set it at the next highest setting or 4x. The OVC300 is an Weather Resistant model meant for outdoor usage. Not only does it help with Impedance matching your speakers but it adds additional control in the zone area. It is a passive device that allows you to attenuate or turn the volume down. This would be perfect for tying your system while adding the AP640s.

I'm looking for a outdoor speaker that puts out some good bass, the last pair I purchased from outdoor depot disappointed in the quality of bass, I don't push the bass hard just want quality sound with a moderate level of bass output. Please suggest speakers in your inventory within the max range of $100 a pair.
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 28, 2013

Answer:
Hi David,

What model did you buy originally? The rule of thumb is the bigger the woofer the more potential bass. A 6.5 speaker has more bass than 5.25 and 8" has more base than the 6.5". What are you using for an amplifier?

Does the AP640 High Performance 6.5" Patio Speakers come with speaker wire? If so, how many feet?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 10, 2012

Answer:
HBE,
The patio speakers do not include speaker cable. We suggest purchasing our 16-2, which is good up to 100ft. For runs longer than 100 feet, consider using 14-gauge cable.

By John from Kansas City on May 12, 2012
What size amp should I use to properly power the AP640 speakers?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 13, 2012

Answer:
Hi John:

If you are planning to drive just these two speakers I would start with our AMP120. If your looking to do more possibly adding a second pair or even a speaker selector then the AMP200 has a lot more flexibility plus a true audiophile sound quality. There is a reason it is over double the price of the AMP120.

I no longer have an indoor receiver but would like to hook patio speakers to my television to listen to the XM radio when we bar-b-que. Will this work with these speakers?

By Customer Service - Q&A on October 24, 2011

Answer:
Most TVs include and RCA Out so technically you could run the them to the TV. The problem is you can't power the speakers via the TV. So you will need some sort of amplifier or receiver to supply power to your AP640s.

can you mount this side ways ???
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 19, 2012

Answer:
Russell,
You can mount them sideways yes. I would mount them so that the woofers are on the inside & the tweeters on the outside.

Suprised how good they sound
August 11, 2016
I added these to a hodge podge of speakers I have in my backyard (Harmon Kardon receiver , Bose AM5 , 8 year old OSD speakers and one lonely Legrande ) I installed them under the eaves of my house facing the old faithful OSD rock speakers across the yard .The whole mess fills the backyard with sound and the AP640s are super clear and carry a surprising amount of bass . I am extremely happy with them !!!!!

Decent speakers
July 5, 2016
Installed a pair of these speakers around my pool. Was a little unhappy at first do to the buzz base sound I was getting out of one speaker. I checked my receiver and lowered the level of base which made a vast improvement. I'm very happy with these speakers. Mounting bracket is great and you can adjust the direction of speakers.
Pros:
Great adjustable bracket Good sound quality
Cons:
Non
Best Uses:
Outside music

Very Good Speaker
June 25, 2016
Had to replace a pair of Cambridge Sound Works after 8 years that I loved. Got a pair of HTD q65s (I am a fan of HTD - home theater and basement surround of HTDs). The q65s seemed flat and very little base. Researched more and came across these. A little skeptical of all the great reviews having never heard of them but ordered anyway. Glad I did. Just installed them and wow! They have tremendous base and sound natural and clear at all volumes. Not a ton of power through Sonos Connect but still louder and better than CSWs or HTDs. I would recommend these to anyone. Especially at $99.00!!! Highly recommend.
Pros:
Efficient, great base
Cons:
Not as good looking as some others but sound better
Best Uses:
Outdoor

Great speakers, great value
June 1, 2016
Our old outside speakers blew over the winter, bought these to replace them, love them. We have a little over two acres that we mow and use, these speakers have outstanding base response as well as the finest high end of any outdoor speakers we have ever had. They handle the high power (180W) that my wife likes when she does her gardening far from the speakers. I hope they last, but even if they don't, I'll buy again!
Pros:
Great base response, fantastic high end!
Cons:
None

Unusually Good Sound For Price
January 16, 2016
These speakers were a pleasant surprise. The sound is excellent for a small speaker at a budget price. The bass response is unusually good for this price range and size. Most speakers this size and in this price range sound "tinny" to me, but not these. Recommended.
Pros:
Good frequency response, full sound.
Cons:
None.
Best Uses:
Small outdoor area (patio, etc.).

Great speakers!
July 6, 2015
These speakers are great! Sound and quality that rivals speakers costing almost twice as much. Easily fills my 45' x 20' patio with great sound without having to crank my Onkyo receiver to the max. I did my homework reading independent reviews and comparing the specs and am fully confident that I made the right choice for my backyard. Plenty of bass and crisp, clear vocals. I'm not disappointed and you won't be either. This was my first experience with OSD and it won't be my last.
Pros:
Sturdy mounting brackets. Large mounting screws with detents and large, easy to turn knobs for angle adjustment. Nice 5-way binding posts make connections super easy. Quality construction.

I'm using 2 pairs of these as part of my home theater setup. I have them ceiling-mounted above my front projection screen (2 spkrs per side) to add some 'height' to my front soundstage ... I have Klipsch floorstanders below the screen as well. Anyhoo, the AP640's sound noticeably fuller with better hi's and low's than the Polk Atrium 4's (only 4&1/2" drivers) that they replaced.
