QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Bryan Espy from Raleigh, NC on July 9, 2012
Guys, I noticed on one of the pictures that this speaker cabinet appears to have a pair of 3/8" threaded mounting holes... can someone confirm? I planning on building a custom ceiling speaker mount, so I need to know the hold sizes, threading, width, etc.

Thanks!

Answer:
Hi Bryan,
On the back of the AP850 there are four mounting screws that are 1/4". They are set 4¼" x 2" apart so that is vertically 4¼" apart and horizontally 2" apart. There are also two side mounting holes that are 4" apart.

Why are the 850's rated at 47hz bass cut off and the 840's at 30hz ?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 27, 2011

Answer:
Both speakers are 90dB (very efficient) and are rated up to 200 watts. The rule of thumb is that the lower frequency response the more power the speakers will take to produce the lower frequencies.

The AP850 costs more for several reasons. The AP850 features a 70 Volt tap that gives you the option to use it in a standard two channel system or 70 Volt commercial setup. It also features a two-inch soft dome tweeter for a more defined top end, which is more appealing in commercial applications where they are utilized more for background music. Either speaker is an excellent choice; it just comes down to your individual application

Hello, Does the AP850 sound any better than the AP840?

I don't want to spend more for the AP850 if both sound the same. I don't need to use these in a commercial application, just want them for hot tub.
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 19, 2012

Answer:
Hi Scott,
I personally think the AP850's are worth the price difference. They are going to produce better quality sound. Before you purchase take a look at the AP650's
They are the equivalent of the AP850's but in a smaller size. We show an image with a dollar bill that will help you judge the size of the speakers better. I think the AP650's are the perfect size, and they sound great! Top notch sound quality. This is relative to the area you are trying to cover though- If you would consider your area large- go with the AP850's

i want to be able to run radio and ipod on these speakers. what equipment is recommended?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 16, 2012

Answer:
Hi Jeff,
You can connect your iPod to our AMP200 with a simple RCA to mini cable (product code OSD-MS-3ft). This cable connects into the back of the amp with RCAs (red and white) and into the headphone jack of your iPod. Radio would be done the same way, with an RCA or and RCA to mini.

Blown away!
August 6, 2016
After installing I was blown away at the powerful beautiful sound these speakers produce! From the clearest highs to the rumbling lows! If you are on the market for patio speakers look no further!! These are the best bang for your buck out there, I've been researching outdoor speakers for awhile, went to checkout speakers at Best Buy and they wanted over $500 for the same specs and quality as these on name brands like JLAudio, Polk and so on. Even my neighbors were amazed, I'm an experience audiophile and I have these powered by an Onkyo receiver and fine tune with equalizer, but to be honest I never thought these speaker were going to sound this great! Now I can have a full blown music pool party!! Built quality feels awesome, looking for many years of use!
Pros:
Best bang for your buck!
Cons:
So far none!
Best Uses:
Pool deck, patios, garages

MOST BANG for the BUCKS $$$
October 10, 2015
If your looking for the best... look no further, 200watts per input, 37Hz to 22Khz, and quality build... I had a pair that recieved 7yrs of daily hard usage, and my friends couldn't believe the sound quality at all volumes... I bought a new pair as I finally wore out the rubber surround on the 8" woofers... These compete with Bose as a friend has a pair that are comparable, but more expensive... ~Sorry Bose~ I'll keep using the AP850's
Pros:
Powerful low end, and crisp highs through the whole frequency spectrum...
Cons:
NONE
Best Uses:
Audio file grade listening for the outdoors on a budget...

Unbelievably Awesome
July 22, 2013
Just came in off the deck to rave about my speakers .I have owned these speakers for 4 or 5 years now and used them on my 24x8 porch prior to being flooded.I replaced my house with an a frame elevated 10' off the ground with a 14'x36' deck facing the creek. They are being fed by a Yamaha R-S700 receiver and matching cd player and competing against definitive mythos STS loud speakers with an 8000 supercube. I placed the speakers under the end eve of the a frame 11'up and 20' apart and they rock.My neighbor stopped and thanked me for the music he enjoyed while kayaking on the creek 50 yards away thru a row of cedar trees.Because of the 50' run I decided to upgrade to 16 gauge oxygen free outdoor cable and the results have blown me away.My 5 year old $350.00 speakers taken out of 2 year storage over top of my garage are producing quality tunes I have never heard from them before, more than holding their own against a system more than 10 times their cost. Bravo OSD what an awesome outdoor product!!!!
Pros:
All positive.
Cons:
None
Best Uses:
Anywhere quality sound is needed

Wrote my first review of these almost 7 years ago...
June 24, 2015
And I only gave them four stars becuase of a small issue. After 7 years of harsh Long Island Winters, Hurricane Sandy, Heat waves, torrential rains, etc... these speakers still blow me away. My budget has increased significantly since I first purchased these, and if I needed more outdoor speakers I would still get these. They are even $50 less than I paid in 2008! I power these along with an old stereo rock speaker discontinued by OSD (what a shame!) with a nice Denon stereo amplifier 100 wpc, and everyone I know compliments the quality of sound. The Bass is remarkable- especially considering these are outdoors. Seperation and the high end is also fantastic. Trust me, for the money or even significantly more, you cannot get better sounding patio speakers.
Pros:
Bass, seperation, build quality, durability.
Best Uses:
Outdoor music over a large area.

Better then my more expensive in-door soeakers
January 29, 2015
Breath taking for quality sound, where out/door reproduction is the most difficult, my neighbors request (play it again please) a non-intrusive sound, able to carry on a conservation and still enjoy the music. If they make an in-door unit for the same price and quality, save me one.
Pros:
Warranty and able to leave out/doors year round. Not necessary to dis-assemble each season.
Best Uses:
By the pool where much splash interference and joyful laugh are hard to over come.

Awesome Speakers - Got exactly what I expected!
October 14, 2013
Ordered them for an outdoor pavillion with them spaced about 24 fee apart and 10 feet off of the ground. Mounted them horizontally and angled them downward a bit. Powered by a Yamaha amp, these things hammer. Plenty of sound for the space and also use them during sporting events on the TV. Great speakers for big sound.
Pros:
Big power handling. 8" sub. Great value for what you're getting.
Cons:
NONE

Very High Quality
September 18, 2013
I purchased 4 AP850's for my back patio, I live on 2 acres and the nearest neighbor is over 100 yards away and I am worried that they will complain since these speakers are so loud and crystal clear that I cant help but turn them way up. I am more than pleased with these quality reasonably priced speakers.
Pros:
Very well built and excellent sound even powered through my AMP300 with it cranked up.
Cons:
Its not really a con for me but i'm sure some will think that they are to big, as they are quit large.

September 10, 2012
When looking for outdoor speakers these need to be considered. I purchased for a large outdoor patio on the side of my home. They are hung about 25feet off the ground under my soffit at about 10 feet apart. I had a party this last weekend and was asked many times of what brand are the speakers and how much were they? When I stated that they were OSD and not a popular name brand the guests were very impressed. The bass is very impressive as well as the overall sound. I am fairly certain there will be orders in the near future from the many inquiries. Great price and great sound. Very pleased with the purchase.

I purchased two of these speakers after much research into outdoor speakers of all types. I went to several stores to hear different types/models etc... After much deliberation I decided to go with the AP850's. I could not be happier. The sound quality, including base, is fantastic. I am buying another pair today. If you are questioning whether to buy these or not...don't. Just buy them! You will not be disappointed. Truly an awesome product! Thank you.

My new AP850s ... well worth the money.
January 7, 2012
I bought these last minute for our Christmas Party to replace an old set of Bose speakers that were mounted out over our patio for over 8 years. I was skeptical, but I needed a good set of speakers for this party. Also, having been a pro in the music industry for 20 years, I did not want generic pair of patio speakers. I powered them up with an old analogue 40watt Yamaha amp, and they came alive. It was hard to not keep them cranked up, except it was hard to talk over them. The fidelity was amazing and both the warmth and definition remained distinct even at lower levels. They did well with all styles of music from reggae, to hip-hop, to blues, to classical. The bass was undeniable without being overwhelming and the highs were distinct, clear, and smooth without being too elegant. Midrange sat exactly where it needed to, to compliment and complete the perfect package, at a very inexpensive price tag. I certainly will be ordering another set for the pool area, and perhaps a few more pair for the rest of the yard and house.
Pros:
Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality, Attractive Design, Good Power Output, Easy to Mount
Best Uses:
Home Theater, Multiple Rooms / Whole House, Basic Systems, Larger Rooms, Home, Outdoors
