QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Mike from UT on May 2, 2012
Are the grills remove-able? If so, how can they be removed?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 3, 2012

Answer:
Hi Mike:

Yes the grills are removable. They are mounted in a slot. You can remove the grill using a paper clip or something that fits into the perforated holes of the grill then slowly work the edges working the grill out of the slots.

I have a patio that is 30'Wx20'D. I am using a projector withe wireless speakers and I am tried of them popping. I am looking to mount (2) speakers on either side of the house/screen area for the projector. Would the 6.5" or 8" work besI have a Yamaha RX-V1200 tuner 80W @ 8ohm = 105W
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 12, 2012

Answer:
Hi Keith,
The AP650 are the perfect size for your application and will give you enough volume as well. These are our top-of-the-line 6.5" speakers. The 8" speakers may be too large for you.

Which outdoor volume control would you recommend?? these will be 2 outdoor speakers tied into our Onkyo Receiver in the basement using the A/B switch...thanks!
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 6, 2012

Answer:
John,
I would recommend the OVC305R- This is a resistor based volume control- It will be ideal for your application because you do not need impedance matching which can slightly degrade the quality ( less than %10 )

I need to mount speakers directly to the house fascia (no eaves...sides of 8' patio sliders). I'd like to mount horizontally; should I mount tilted slightly downward?
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 9, 2012

Answer:
Hi Alan:

Yes mounting them slightly downward would be perfect for you application. You want to make sure the Tuned port is not directly exposed. to the elements.

What is the minimum watts required to operate the AP650?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 14, 2012

Answer:
Hi mark:
Tthese speakers feature a 91dB sensitivity which means they are not power hungry (they are efficient) so 10 to 15 watts as a mimimum would be recommended.

I have the AP650 outdoor speakers. I want to find a small receiver that allows me to connect the AP650's speaker wire to it and my iPad/iPod for music. Anyone knowledge of a small docking station or receiver with speaker wire connections?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 15, 2012

Answer:
HI Mike:

At the minimum our AMP120 will work for your basic application. The next step from there would be our AMP200 which is high current amplifier that features all discrete components, unique installer friendly features and a true audiophile sound quality. Both feature Speaker A and B outputs. The amp200 has the ability of powering multiple speakers with its 2 ohm load capability. If all your planning for now and in the future of just powering the single pair of AP650 then AMP120 would be your viable choice.

What does the 70v option mean
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 16, 2012

Answer:
HI Dean,

The 70v option allows the speaker to be used with a 70 volt commercial amplifier. It has an 8-ohm setting for connecting to a standard two-channel amplifier. We do offer this speaker as an 8 ohm version as well (same price) without the 70v transformer. Check out the images on the page that show the selector switch on the back. You can see that there are six settings: 8 ohm, 25W, 15W, 10W, 5w and 2.5W. The five 70v settings have to do with how many speakers can be connected based upon how many Watts the system is rated. If you use a 60-Watt 70 volt system and set the speakers to 5 Watts, then you can connect 12 individual 70v speakers in mono. These 70v systems are typically used in business offices, restaurants, and bars for background music.

By Customer Service - Q&A on November 8, 2011

Are the outdoor speakers waterproof? I want to mount them on the side of my house but I don't want to if they are not water proof.
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 10, 2011

Answer:
All of our patio speakers are weatherproof - that means it can withstand the weather, but it is always a good idea to have some kind of cover above the speakers.

Waterpoof means the speaker can submerge under the water. I don't think any outdoor speakers in the market can do that.

By abd1 from 97035 on December 1, 2011
can these be mounted horizontally as well as vertically?
By Customer Service - Q&A on December 2, 2011

Answer:
Hi:

No problem mounting these horizontially. It states the mounting bracket will swivel 180 degrees giving you maximum flexibility as well.

AP650 - 2 years in and still doing great
February 18, 2016
I bought these a little over 2 years ago initially to play Christmas music outside for a light show. They are more than loud enough for my needs. I'm driving them with an Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver in the house connected to a computer. Of course I use an FM Xmtr too so I don't have to use these all the time during shows (as that can get very repetitive). But I also use these for music on my patio year round. They have held up well. I have them mounted under the overhang on the front porch overlooking the front patio. These will easily cover a very large area with sound. Want to listen to music from 50 yards away ? No problem. They will handle the Onkyo at basically just about full volume and still be clear although I never really have need to run them that loud. (That's a bit much even for my rural neighborhood) But I have tried it out to see what they will do. These were my first purchase from OSD and I've just submitted my 3rd speaker purchase so I've had enough good experiences here to keep me coming back. The prices are tough to beat at the given quality. The only bad thing is I see is these are now $50 less than I paid for them over 2 years ago. I suppose that is good if you are buying them now. But I've got my use out of them and figure to get years more from them.

Very happy with purchase. Great quality for the price. Replaces a pair of P**k Speskers that were over twice the price and can say the sound quality is just as good if not better.
Pros:
Surprised at bass quality
Cons:
Have only had 1 week so can't speak to long term reliability

I have to be totally honest, I did not expect to find a very high quality speaker at such a low price point. I was pleasantly surprised by these speakers. They sound dynamic, carry well over large spaces, and provide ample bass response. Highly recommended for someone looking for a nice outdoor sound system for parties or yard work while trying to stay on a budget.

Excellent speaker, especially for the price
August 26, 2015
I purchased 1 pair of these in June of 2015 for use on my patio. I installed them slightly above ground on aluminum posts to limit their visibility. Despite their size, they are not noticed until they are playing. The sound is quite clear and not harsh. There is a good balance of low/ mid/ and high range. I don't feel the need for an additional sub-woofer, although the bass is more hollow than you would feel indoors (but better than many other outdoor setups I have heard). Given my patio is very long, I will likely purchase additional 450's to fill out the remainder and have full sound field. Looking at my current setup, after purchasing these, I may have been better off going 70V so that I can easily string. Another good idea may have been to go for the mono output, rather than alternating right/ left/ right/ left down the length of the patio and deck.
Pros:
clear sound reasonable bass sounds carries well at low and high volumes
Cons:
mounting brackets are a little flimsy - they can easily be bent and barely hold the speaker in position when used horizontally
Best Uses:
Great stand-alone patio speakers.

Awesome. Company was very helpful with questions.
January 3, 2015
These were delivered in the evening so I connected them indoors before installing just to see how they sounded using extra channel of Denon 275 watt receiver. I was disappointed. Bass was just ok. Virtually no midrange. Highs had no endpoint. I left them running for a few hours and sound improved. Next morning I ran them again while I wired and installed on covered patio. The eventual outdoor sound was astonishing. Crisp and very well balanced at all volumes. Plenty of bass. I am more than pleased. I will be buying a second pair for my downstairs patio. I did alot of online searches before buying. I listened to a friend's Bose 151s and did not like the sound. These opd 650 speakers won best sound in one blind comparison but the reviewers were concerned about the port collecting water. Should not be an issue, especially on covered patio. The company was very helpful with my many questons. I love these speakers! Be sure to give them time to burn in.
Pros:
Great sound
Cons:
Only 1 year warranty
Best Uses:
Outdoor patio

Bigger Than Expected
December 4, 2014
When we received these speakers they where bigger than I expected. The handle pops off easily by unscrewing the end knobs. We had the wires run and plugged in under an hour. We have then playing from an ordinary boom box and they sound great. The sound travels well from under the eaves of the roof. Have only had them a few months, so we will see how they stand up to the outdoors. We're thinking about getting a second set and installing them on the backside of our pavilion.
Pros:
easy install, sound great even with an inexpensive receiver
Best Uses:
Under the eaves of an overhanging roof

Great Patio Speakers
October 14, 2014
Outstanding speakers at twice the price. I replaced my Notable Competitor (Cambridge) outdoor speakers of approximately the same specs. The OSD speakers are at least comparable, and probably superior to the considerably more expensive Cambridge patio speakers I have used for the past 15 years. Excellent design and construction. Very clean and balanced sound, with surprisingly full sound range for the size. Great product for the price.

Pretty good for the money
July 9, 2014
I was hesitant at first since i could have purchased the bose 151's for less. I decided to mount them under my eaves that are at least two stories above my deck. My deck is roughly 18 x 45' and these speakers have no issues providing enough sound. Not just background music.... i mean auditorium loud! They are powered by an old school pioneer receiver with 14 gauge high density stranded mono price speaker wire with 55 ft runs. I angled them just enough for the sound to propagate to my yard. Wow.... just wow. They sound better further away with decent bass sound. Weird phenomenon.... the further away the better they sound. I walked to the end of my yard approx 350ft away and the sound was plenty and clear (Cranked up of course). I say decent because it truly is decent. Not the best but good enough for my application. High end bose outdoor speakers indeed have better sounding bass but at what cost? For the price i think I'm ok with the ap650's. I still envy my neighbor' s. Solid construction but i question the rattles during some low end frequencies. This occurs even at low to mid volumes. Other than the front grills, no water will penetrate these speakers. The seams are tight and glued properly. Well done OSD. They are not heavy but have some mass to them. There were no concerns mounting them to the side of my house. Brandon at OSD is top notch and was a great help answering my questions pre purchase. Speakers arrived exactly 5 business days after purchase.
Pros:
Very loud for it size ....fills most of my yard (1.5 acres) Crisp highs and mids. OK bass response. Quality construction
Cons:
Certain bass frequencies cause a rattling sound. Does not have long throw woofers .... struggles with the deep bass. Tone it down and u should be fine.
Best Uses:
Outdoor overlooking the deck

September 16, 2013
These are my only 2 speakers in the backyard and they sound great even at low volumes. The thing that I noticed is how these produce a full sound that covers my yard and they block out my neighbor's tunes even when his are cranked up. They can play loud and are clear and crisp! Tons of bass too. Highly recommended! I can only imagine what 4 of these would sound like!

Very Nice Quality Sound that's Gentle on the Wallet
September 14, 2013
I recently purchased a pair of AP 650 speakers. I discovered these speakers from the almost unanimously positive reviews from folks who had bought them. I too offer my high praise for the sound of the speakers. I have them mounted outside on my lanai and they sound fabulous using Sonos amp to drive them. I have been a Bose fan my whole life but decided to take a chance with these AP 650s. no regrets and quite a bit less expensive. Also, an added plus was the top shelf customer support from OSD and super fast delivery. Got to go and have a beer on my lanai ....aaahh.

AP650 audio speakers for outdoor patio
May 6, 2013
My wife and I had our first social gathering since I installed the new OSD outdoor speakers and they sounded great. I am very pleased with my investment in these speakers. I was initially suspicious of the ability of the brackets, that came with the speakers, to properly hold the speakers, they seemed to be too lightweight. After the speakers were mounted the brackets are working out fine.

I am certainly impressed with my purchase of these speakers. The sound is quite impressive. i also purchased a sub woofer to compliment the sound quality. I even recommended this site to my surround sound contractor. I am a home builder in Texas. I just ordered another two pairs to replacing other existing speakers that I have
