how far apart should i place the speakers
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 9, 2012

Answer:
Hi Rick,

If you are planning to listen to these speakers from a specific location such as a patio table and chairs, think of the speakers connected to your listening area as a triangle. The distance from your listening area to the speakers should be equal to the distance separating the speakers. If you are going to be sitting 10 feet from each speaker, then they should be 10 feet apart. You should also angle speakers to your listening area if possible. If you cannot angle them, then move the speakers closer together.

Does the harman kardon hk 3390 receiver supply enough power to run these speakers?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 21, 2012

Answer:
Hi Becky:

The AP840 should work just fine with this Harmon Kardon Receiver.

By Brett from FL on March 31, 2012
What amp is best for these speakers? I would have a total of 4 (2) facing out towards the beach/lake the other (2) under a picnic bar area. Would be nice to select one or the other or both at same time and maybe control volume seperately on one set. Music would come from ipad/ipod divice. Thanks
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 2, 2012

Answer:
Hi Brett,
Our Amp200 would be great for two pairs of these, and you could connect your iPod with an RCA to mini cable. Here is the product code: OSD-MS-1FT. This will go into the headphone jack and then into the back of the amp.

Does his speaker com in a pair for 199 or I have to buy one individually
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 25, 2012

Answer:
Hi Davie:

$199.95 is the cost for a pair of the AP840 speakers. They are packaged as pairs in a single box. If you are looking to purchase a single 8" 2 way Patio speaker we do offer our AP850 70Volt speaker. They features either a 8 ohm setting 5 choices for 70Volt; 10W, 15W, 25W, 35W, 45W. They are the next step above the AP840. We sell them as a 8 ohm stereo pair as well for $299.00.

how much do the speakers weigh individually?
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 21, 2011

Answer:
The pack weight (box and hardware) is 28.5 pounds. This would make the speakers roughly 12 pounds each.

By Keith from Atlanta on June 17, 2012
Would a newer flat panel television have enough power to power these speakers?
By Customer Service - Q&A on June 18, 2012

Answer:
Hi Keith:

It would depend what TV and whether it features a powered output or RCA pre-amp outputs. Most TV's are limited on power if they are using an internal amplifier (maybe 10 watts at best). Most TV's have a pre-amp output that need to be connected with an external amplifier like our OSD AMP120. You will need to check whether the output is fixed or variable because you will want the volume to be controlled by the TV itself (look for variable output). You may also have the option of connecting your TV with a HDMI cable from a cable or satellite box then connect your audio from the RCA analog output of your cable/satellite box. You will definitely need an external Amp like our AMP120.. Good luck...

Beautiful sounds
November 23, 2016
Perfect patio speakers. Great base response- better than I thought. No complaints here! Just keep an eye on the grills. They sometimes want to slowly slide off in time.
Pros:
The base response is great. Good highs too. With a little EQ tweaking, you can get similar sound like the Bose. Almost but not quite. But pretty doggon close!
Cons:
The grill in time likes to rattle loose/off. The brackets should be a thicker guage but still does the job.
Best Uses:
Patios, open areas like fire pits areas.

Better than Bose
October 2, 2016
I bought a pair of these for my outdoor patio area. I also bought some Bose 151 outdoor speakers from someone on Craigslist (new, unopened). The sound from the AP840 is much better, particularly the low end (bass) sounds. I mounted the bose, also, but would prefer a second set of these even though they're half the price.
Pros:
Great sound
Cons:
Large box, not easily concealed

This is my second purchase. I bought a pair over a year ago. They have been outside in the weather for all that time. They sound as good as when I bought them and look just as good. This pair I am using inside. They look good and sound good. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Good sound, don't hold up well
June 3, 2014
I have these tucked under the eaves of our garage which is near our pool, and they produce great sound, the challenge is after two seasons, the grills are all rusty. Tried cleaning them with CLR, but it's not coming off. Overall a great value if looks don't matter to you.
Pros:
Great affordable sound
Cons:
Rusty grills that look bad
Best Uses:
Pool, Patio

Love Outdoor Speaker Depot
April 28, 2014
Ordered a pair of these for my back deck. This was my second order from OSD. Both orders shipped right away, and showed up quick. As with my other speakers, I am impressed with the sound I get out of them. I have had them for a year now and still love them as much as when I first installed them. I have the amplifier in the basement and ran wires up to the roof,and streaming from my iphone to an airport express that is wired into the amp. Just ordered some wall speakers for the basement, cant wait!

FOR THE PRICE, GOOD SOUND, AND EXCELLENT CONSTRUCTION
January 23, 2014
HAVE ONLY DONE A SHORT TEST. WAITING FOR SUMMER TO SPEND MORE TIME LISTENING ON THE PATIO. SO FAR I AM SATISFIED WITH THE SOUND AND THE QUALITY CONSTRUCTION. THE LOUDEST SPEAKERS I HAVE EVER USED ON THE PATIO. FOR THE PRICE I CAN RECOMMEND.

Still Pumping
January 18, 2014
Three years outside in Ohio and still sounds better than any other outdoor speaker I've heard. I also have a pair in the 1,200 square foot brick carriage house / party barn. The pair in the carriage house are part of the system that includes two Polk sub-woofers and a Harmon Kardon receiver. Do I need to tell you that once the laser and smoke machine is turned on.... You get the picture. I have experience with some higher end components. I think these speakers will pleasantly surprise you, especially when you know what the competitors charge for less capable speakers. I am glad I found OSD.
Pros:
Can YOU find a better sounding outdoor speaker for the money?
Cons:
They may not last forever.
Best Uses:
Just my opinion but smooth jazz at the pool is probably the best use.

Speakers are pretty good, Grills Fall Off...
August 27, 2013
Overall the speakers appear to be pretty good quality - I'm happy for the price. Sound quality seems good - impressive amount of bass for an outdoor speaker. The only real issue I see is that the speaker grills are falling off after being in the sun for about a week. I'm guessing they are held in with some kind of adhesive that weakens with the heat of the sun or simply deteriorates, either way they shouldnt fall off.. Hoping to get a fix from Customer Service.
Merchant Response:
We will send you the adhesive.
Pros:
Suprising amount of bass - really sound pretty good, lots of sound for the money
Cons:
Speaker Grills seem to come detached when hung in sunlight.. they just fall off after a week or so.
Best Uses:
Covered Porches - these dont seem to be able to handle direct sunlight without the grills melting off :P

Great Midrange and Treble
August 1, 2013
I had hoped that with an eight inch woofer that these speakers would have more bass punch. The magnet structure was probably reduced to lighten the weight for wall mounting. I have a Yamaha RX-V863 with Athena Dual 8" towers, Athena center channel, Athena Subwoofer, Polk Audio sides and JBL PA monitors in the back. The AP840's sound is really quite good aside from the lack of bass. I use a Toslink fiber optic cable to connect my MacPro (for iTunes etc) to my Yamaha and found a shareware app that really helps the AP840s come up on the bass end. The app is called HEAR and has made my patio speakers a lot more solid sounding. An outdoor subwoofer would be nice to balance out the AP840s. They are well made.
Pros:
Bought on sale at a nice price. Very good midrange and treble
Cons:
almost non-existent bass

Speakers bigger than I thought, sound is good the only problem is one of the knobs that hold it to the bracket the screw part was a little shorter than the others and makes it hard to get it to screw into the speaker.

Great Outdoor Speaker
July 17, 2013
Bought these for an large covered deck application. Very impressed with the overall frequency response and bass production. Easy to mount in a variety of configurations that allow you to direct the sound to the targeted center of the listening area. These sound as good as or better than high-end brand name speakers priced at 3X what these cost.
Pros:
Great overall sound. Easy to install and direct the sound. Nice appearance and presumed durability.
Cons:
A bit large visually for some smaller settings.
Best Uses:
Patios or decks where you desire some bass production without the hassle of placing a powered sub woofer.

Easy to install, and deliver nice smooth sound. "Bass Boost" on receiver results in well balanced output by these speakers. Plays all genres very well.
