Features & Specifications

If you need clear, powerful sound in your outdoor space, the OS525 High-Definition Omni Speakers Pair might be perfect for you. Ideal for lawns and gardens, these speakers blend right into your landscape. Like all OSD speakers, the OS525 Omni can withstand all weather conditions; they're even immune to pool chemicals. With 100 watts of power, these speakers are just right for areas between 300 and 500 square feet.

What Is an Omni Speaker?
Popular with landscape professionals and audio contractors, Omni speakers provide true omni-directional 360° surround sound with no obstructions. If there are multiple people scattered in different areas, the sound is consistent, not mixed. This feature plus the durable nature of Omnis make it a popular speaker for theme parks, hotels, and resorts; however, Omnis are also quite common for residential use.

Should I bury my omni speakers to get better sound?
You don't have to bury your Omni speakers but it will enhance sound quality and here's why. The sound comes out of the "mushroom cap" on top of the speaker. When you bury the omni (a few inches above the grille), the sound has a surface to bounce off of--the ground acts like a tuned baffle!

By Wayne from NJ on October 15, 2012
I would like to add a subwoofer to my pair of OS525. Which subwoofer would you recommend?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 18, 2012

Answer:
Hi Wayne,
Our OMSUB200 would be perfect for your applications. A great feature of this sub is that it includes a built-in crossover that allows you to run it off your current amp or receiver (unlike other passive subs that require a sub amp). Take a look at the diagram for wiring the OM525 pair with the OMSUB200 on the product page.

By Kitty from Oxford, MI on July 14, 2012
We live in Michigan and bought those speakers couple of years ago.After the first winter one speaker died. Had it exchange and next winter the same. Are they really weather proof? We are looking for new ones. What can you recommend to survive the winters. I'm tired of replacing them every year.

By Customer Service - Q&A on July 16, 2012

Answer:
Hi Kitty,

I am sorry you are having issues with the OS525. These speakers are weather resistant; however, we recommend customers store them during the cold winter months, especially if they’re is a chance they will be submersed in snow. A better choice would be either a pair of OS-790 or the RS660OM which are more weather resistant than the OS525. Your OS525 should still be under warranty. Please contact brennan@osdaudio.com to discuss your options. We can offer you a deal on possible replacements.

By Tim from Illinois on April 5, 2012
Do these come pre wired or include any wire?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 6, 2012

Answer:
Tim,

They come with about a foot lead wire from the speaker bottom. We offer CL3 rated Speaker Wire that is approved for Direct Burial. We offer both 16 and 14 gauge from 50 to 500 foot lengths. We recommend using 16 Guage up to 80 feet and 14 Gauge for longer runs.

Nice but small sound
June 28, 2013
These type of omni directional speakers are better than any rock speaker as far as durability goes. These are a little small in sound and the quality of sound is a little muffled.
Best Uses:
flower beds, yard areas, anywhere exposed to the elements.

Pool Speakers
April 2, 2013
I was looking for some nice background music for my small 12k gallon pool and these speakers fit the bill. Originally I had these speakers on a 90 watt automobile amplifier and they sounded great. I added the SUB200 which slighlty enhanced the bass when I crank it up which is seldom.
Pros:
Best sound for the money and even better sound than more expensive speakers
Best Uses:
Back ground music with a deep rich sound.

Great Speaker for the price
May 22, 2012
I purchased these along with a OM-SUB200. They have good high and mid range but light on Base. The addition of the SUB20I purchased these along with a OM-SUB200. They have good high and mid range but light on Base. The addition of the SUB200 resolved this. I have the speakers buried about 8 inches from my deck. The sound is a little blocked and would recommend placing them about 12" from objects that might block the sound if possible. My amp is 100 watts per channel, would recommend more power. The speakers can take all the amp has and looks for more. With my amp they are not quite loud enough for movies but as I said, the addition of more power would probably resolve that.
Pros:
Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Attractive Design, Great Sound Quality, Easy to Mount
Best Uses:

Excellent!!
March 25, 2012
We received our speakers sooner than expected, which was a treat! They were installed quickly and easily, and they sound way better than expected. Our previous speakers were *rock* speakers that surrounded our pool area, and had a very nice sound, but these speakers blow them out of the water! They're phenominal for out door use and the sound is crystal clear. I highly recommend them.

Quality Speakers for the $$$
December 14, 2011
Easy to put into the ground after wiring to my stereo in the basement...some killer Christmas music coming out of them to go along with my outdoor lighting. The neighbor came next door the other night and thanked me for having everything together...he said his family really enjoyed hearing the music. Would definitely use them again for a larger backyard project or around a pool area. Quick delivery, good packaging. Box was in good shape when it arrived on my doorstep.

Easy To Setup, Great Sound Quality, Attractive Design, Easy to Mount

We bought 2 speakers (you need 2 for stereo sound) and the price was extraordinary. The shipping cost was a tad much, but whatever. The speakers arrived quickly and the visual quality was better than we expected. The sound is what pleased us the most. Great sound quality!!! Now we are keeping our fingers crossed that they last as long as other, more expensive, speakers we have on the property. I would recommend this company and this product.

June 28, 2007
We have had 2 of these (probably a slightly older model) in our back yard around our pool since the summer of 1994. They are the BEST!!! I can't give these speakers a high enough star rating. They have lived through 3 deck overhauls and 14 lake-effect winters (we live near Syracuse NY) with absolutely no problems. We have only ever had to clean them out once or twice and replace the foam rings on each once. The sound quality is amazing even after all these years. The college students who live around us are impressed with the volume as well!
