When they list 100W power handling is that RMS or Peak? Is that per speaker or for the pair? Thanks in advance.
By Customer Service - Q&A on June 28, 2012

Answer:
Hi Ross,
100W would be peak. The RMS (root mean square) is about half that at 50W. This is a pair of speakers.

By Rudy from Boston, MA on July 10, 2012
Would these speakers be able to support something off of an auxilary output cable like an ipod? I have the RCA-headphone jack cable, so I would be able to connect....just not sure if any amplification is necessary. Thanks
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 10, 2012

Answer:
Hi Rudy,
Amplification would be key- your RCA to mini cable would connect to the amp or receiver that is driving these speakers connected through speaker cable.

I have a bose wave radio, Would I be able to hook these speakers to it?
By Customer Service - Q&A on March 29, 2012

Answer:
Hi Eric:

The BOSE Wave radio does not have Speaker level output allowing you to connect directly to these AP490 Speakers. It will allow you to connect to other BOSE systems, Check with your local BOSE store for other options. You might be able to connect an adaptor cable(Mini 3.5mm to Dual RCA) from the headphone jack on the BOSE Wave Radio to our AMP120 then connect the AP490 to the speaker outputs. That is assuming you can connect some other non BOSE Headphones to Headphone Output on the back of the WAVE Radio. That might be worth a call to BOSE support as well just to make sure.

By mike from atlanta ga on April 4, 2012
Can you mount them horizontically?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 4, 2012

Answer:
Mike,
The bracket for the AP490 is meant for Vertical application with the ability to tilt the speaker down about 15 to 30 degrees. The bracket is screwed to the Speaker at the bottom of the speaker enclosureand since they are not that heavy, you could mount them horizontially but we do not recommend it.

By Matt from LA on May 31, 2012
When I buy "1" am I really getting 1 or 2 speakers? Thanks.
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 31, 2012

Answer:
Hi Matt:

These are sold in pairs (you get two, right and left stereo). You do have a choice of white or black finish. It also includes the brackets and mounting hardware. We do not include the screws needed to install the mounting bracket. That will depend where and what surface you choose to mount the speakers. We also sell the proper CL3 speaker wire you will need to connect to your power/source.

By Romel from Los Angeles, California on April 18, 2012
Hello I just want to confirm that the OSV70 is the correct volume control to use with the AP490. Also, I am running my outdoor speakers (1 pair of AP490) off of my speaker B outputs on my main receiver while my speaker A run as fronts for my HT system. At times, I plan on running the A and B simultaneously for entertaining.

Do I need to make adjustments accordingly when I do so?
If so, can I leave permanently adjusted or do I have to change it every time?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 18, 2012

Answer:
Hi Romel,

This would be the choice if you are intending to add a volume control. Be advised, however, that a volume control is a passive device. You set up your volume levels with the volume control fully open and set clockwise all the way to the right. The volume control allows you to turn the volume down and does not add any gain to the master volume control from your receiver. You should be able to play both Speaker A and B at the same time as long as your receiver has a switch that shows both playing at the same time (A + B). Make sure you set the Impedance matching switch to 1/2X.

By Jonathan W from Los Angeles, CA on January 9, 2013
I am planning on buying outdoor speakers to go with my new Sonos Connect Amp. I love Sonos and have it throughout my house. So the Sonos info says "the power rating should be at least 75 Watts for 8 OHM Speakers and at least 150 Watts for 4 OHM Speakers... Do not connect speakers with less than 4 OHMs." What do you think would be the best speaker for this amp for outdoors - with the most bass response - I don't want all high end. I need them to have Mounting Brackets as well.
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 10, 2013

Answer:
Hi Jonathan,
We recommend going with a 5.25" speaker like our AP520, for a little more bass than the AP490 can provide. The AP520s produce better low frequencies because the woofer is larger and can move more air. Both are rated at 8 ohms, come with brackets and are compatible with your Sonos. Happy listening!

AP490 speakers
September 20, 2013
I got an Onkyo receiver in my out building where I keep my Harley. The Optimus speakers I had were old and not made for outdoor use so the speaker cones self-destructed. So I went shopping and found these AP490 speakers at OSD. In a word,FANTASTIC. Yes,the speakers,the price and the service from OSD all fantastic. I am literally in "Hog" heaven to the great sound and clarity coming from these speakers. The Optimus speakers never came close to the quality of the sound coming from the AP490s. Love 'em. Thanks OSD you've earned a new customer.

Great Little Speakers
July 21, 2013
I have the AP490s wall mounted in my screened in porch. The deliver fine sounding audio as background music during gatherings. A good buy at $65. Easy to mount with provided hardware. Speakers mount vertical, but angle can be adjusted, up and down, right and left.
Pros:
Easy install
Cons:
I would think that they would NOT perform well at a dance party.
Best Uses:
Background music in Screen room. Remote outdoor TV Speakers.

Excellent soundinspeakers for the price!
August 13, 2012
I'm using these speakers for our deck and hot tub area. They sound like an expensive speaker with clear highs and sweet mid range tones. I also enjoyed pumping out the lows with some electronic dub music...the bass sound was deep enough to feel, and no distortion at high volume. I am very satisfied with these speakers and would I recomend them to anyone.
Pros:
Good Power Output, Easy To Set Up, Attractive Design, Great Sound Quality, Easy to Mount
Best Uses:
Basic Systems, Multiple Rooms / Whole House, Larger Rooms, Home Theater, Smaller Rooms, Home, Outdoors
