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.
Do I need special cable to run outdoor speakers?
We strongly recommend our direct burial, CL3/FT4 waterproof cable and wire connectors that are designed for the outdoors. Our speaker wire uses a specially formulated UV-resistant, white polyethylene jacket that provides protection against water damage and allows the cables to 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, OSD recommends you bury it 4-6" underground so that it's not visible nor pose a danger of somebody tripping over it. Our speaker cable is ideal to use in direct burial applications. As for the gauge, for runs up to 100 feet for background music, 16-gauge will be fine. If the run is approaching or exceeding 100 feet, we suggest 14-gauge wire.
Add Volume Controls
Volume controls can be a great addition to a system providing both proper impedance matching and more hands-on local control of the volume in the listening area. We offer a great selection of outdoor volume controls to choose from!
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.

Rob • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM 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
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMRob, 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. CL
Alan Chiappa • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have a 150 watt technics stereo receiver. Are these speakers compatible with it?

Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHello, Yes, all of the speakers we carry are 8 ohms, including the RX805 Rock speakers. CL/MA 1844
Joe • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Can I use a pair of these if my receiver is 90 watts per channel / 125 watts peak per channel
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Joe, These outdoor rock speakers handle more power than your receiver is rated for; therefore, it will drive them just fine. The RX805s, however, are out of stock. An alternative is the RS680. These include 6.5" wooers but deliver superior sound quality. CL/MA 2026
