Features & Specifications

The RX805 Outdoor Rock Speaker is a team favorite at OSD for its natural look and excellent sound. This speaker has an 8-inch polypropylene woofer and 1-inch dome tweeter that provide excellent high and low notes. The RX805 will have no problem filling large backyards, pools or patios and is very natural looking. Place these speakers anywhere a natural rock would be found and you'll hardly notice them (until you turn these speakers on). Typical locations for the rock speakers are rock formations for barriers around pools, ponds and spas, bordering a garden and even as an accent in flower gardens.

Installation Difficulty: Novice
Like all our rock speakers, being handy is helpful but not required. Installing these speakers can be very simple; just decide where you want them to go and run the speaker wire from the desired sound source. Most outdoor speakers are passive devices, meaning they do not have built-in amplification and will need a source of power. Most customers connect their outdoor speakers directly to household amplification, that is directly to a home receiver or outboard receiver stored safely in a tool shed or other covered space where it is protected from the elements.

How durable are these rock speakers?
OSD outdoor speakers are developed with harsh conditions of the outdoors in mind. Our rock speakers use only non-water-absorbing materials and won't absorb any water. This is critical in winter so it won't freeze and crack. The shape is designed to withstand large amounts of pressure, extreme temperatures and moisture. Remember though, outdoor speakers are an investment, so take care of them. Storing them away from extreme weather conditions will only lengthen the time you will get enjoying outdoor speakers. These rock speakers utilize weather-resistant components for years of trouble free performance.

Do I need special cable to run outdoor speakers?
Direct burial, waterproof cable and wire connectors designed for the outdoors are recommended. These speaker cables withstand extreme weather conditions like rain, snow and high temperatures and incorporate twice the insulation of average cable. If you plan to bury the cable in the ground, we recommend using direct burial cable.

To improve longevity of the surface quality on our outdoor speakers, place the rocks in a shaded area to prevent color fade from too much direct sunlight. It is recommended to keep our outdoor speakers out of contact with any chemicals that may be present in your yard. We encourage you to bring the speakers indoors or cover them up during the off seasons to ensure a longer life for the speaker

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Rob from connecticut on December 23, 2011
What is the main differencee between the RX805 and RS790 8" speaker. I see there is a substantial price difference.

I plan to power the Speakers with a pioneer home receiver rated at 100watt x 2

Thank you,

Rob
By Customer Service - Q&A on December 27, 2011

Answer:
Rob,
To start, looking at the Frequency Response for each speaker, the Rs790 is gonna give you more bass. The magnet on the Rs790 is bigger as well as the speaker being made up of higher quality materials- giving it better sound quality. The last thing I notice is different is the Rs790 have a two year warranty and the Rx805 has a one year warranty.

Perfect for the yard!
October 12, 2016
I've been building up my rock speaker collection in the backyard over the past few years and just added these as speakers number 5 & 6. They blend into the landscape perfectly and provide nice sound whether I'm just hanging out for morning coffee or grilling out with friends. You can crank these up enough to hear them from anywhere in the yard, and annoy the neighbors, but they're best used at a lower volume to provide some music in the background...some ambiance. That's why I keep adding speakers and placing throughout the yard...it allows me to keep the music at a lower volume and still hear it where ever I'm at in the yard. I definitely recommend these speakers to anyone and everyone who asks!
Pros:
Sound great and blend into the landscape.
Cons:
They'll fade in the sun and weather after a couple of years, but they'll keep rockin' (pun intended)! Just buy a can of the stone texture spray paint from Lowes/Home Depot and they're like new again!
Best Uses:
Use in multiples if you can and spread them throughout the yard to create more of an ambiance effect.

Fantastic Speakers!
August 1, 2016
These speakers are fantastic. They sound great out of the box. The low end is very good for their size. I am recommending them to all my friends looking for outdoor speakers.
Pros:
Great sound. Very good low end for their size.
Cons:
The only con is the the wire coming out of the speaker is a small gauge. If you are hooking these up to the end of a long run, chances are you are changing gauges once you get to these leads.

Great speakers. Have lasted me 10 years.
March 22, 2016
I ordered these speakers from OSD 10 years ago for my house in Florida. They lasted the whole time. I recently relocated those same speakers to my other house in North Carolina and ordered new wire. Speakers still sound great! The only thing I need to do is paint over the teeth marks on the speakers left by the squirrels.

Don't judge a book by its cover
June 13, 2012
i use these rock speaker to balance out the sound on my 800 square foot patio. i have a Harmon Kardon 125 watt per channel 2 channel receiver with a pair of b&w outdoor speakers mounted on exterior wall. i run all 4 speakers thru a volume control mounted outside and the sound coming out of the rock speakers really impressed me for the price. They don;t look extremely realistic but sitting at the corners of my patio in the flowers they look fine. I would recommend these speakers for the money . Shipping was fast, over all great experience.
Pros:
Great Sound Quality, Good Power Output
Cons:
Not realistic looking
Best Uses:

Great speakers
May 17, 2012
speakers sound great and are plenty powerful for around my 20x40 foot pool. I have these speakers on the far side of the pool facing the house, 2, 6 inch patio speakers under the deck facing out and 2, 4 inch patio speakers mounted to the house. All are routed to a speaker selector and hooked to my sonos. I have the rock speakes set at 2x the volume of the other speakers. The result is that the entire pool area is filled with sound without needing to crank the volume.
Pros:
Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Cons:
NONE
Best Uses:

Great speakers, good bass
February 1, 2012
I bought these for my outdoor patio. I did have wall mounted speakers on each side of the patio but one blew and it was time to research new outdoor speakers. I wanted more bass but didn't have a huge budget. I also wanted ground mounted because I dont want anymore wires hanging down the side of the house. These go well with my landscaping, they actually serve the purpose of decorating as well as functional speakers. It's in the middle of winter so I have not used them heavily, but I did test them out for a while one day. Very nice sound...highs, mids, lows. The only thing is that you have to aim them where you'll usually be listening. I have them pointed out to by backyard because thats where we play outdoor games. But when you come up to the house to go inside, it sounds kind of muffled or 'bassy' without the clear highs. It's mostly just due to the fact that I have a grill between me and 1 speaker and a patio table between me and the other speaker, so it blocks the highs/mids and echos the bass. I will have to aim them differently when summer comes around to see what sounds best. Other than that (which has nothing to do with the speaker itself), I dont think these could get much better! GREAT PRICE!!
Pros:
Easy To Setup, Great Sound Quality, Attractive Design, Good Power Output
Best Uses:
Home, Outdoors

Great Speaker
September 29, 2011
I replaced my old rock speakers, the efficiency is at least the stated 91dB, which is plenty to have the show going on with an amp only 2x20W. The bass is full and the sound altogether would let me even use it in a listening room setup if did like rocks inside. I definitely get another pair .

Easy To Setup, Easy to Mount, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

Purchaed four of these for the backyard around the pool. We are very impressed with the sound quality and bass output. I was not expecting this good of a product. Only downside, one of the speakers may be developing a hair line crack in the silicone seal about the front of the speaker.
