Lifetime Tech Support

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!

Extremely Durable
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.

15 Questions asked on 8" 200W Outdoor Weather-Resistant High Performance Rock Speaker Pair, Brown or Granite Grey - RX805

William • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Do the speakers have a 2-wire or 4-wire connection? I have 4-wire cables. Do the sub-woofers have a separate connection?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi William: This come as a stereo pair with each speaker having a 2 conductor wire connection (red/positive and black/negative). If you have four wires it should be right and left (+/-). The sub woofer connection depends on your Receiver/Amplifier and the sub woofer you pick out. It would help to know what all the components you have or are looking at for your system. maybe you can give me an idea (brand and model number helps) including a rough drawing and any images you can supply. my contact tim@osdaudio.com.

Dan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q if I wanted to use them separately, not as a pair, could I simply wire both left and right channels to each and position them in separate areas of my yard? Would that work and sound decent? They would be wired to a Denon AVRX3400H receiver. Thanks.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Dan: I had to confirm that you could set the output on your DENON ZONE 2 output to Monoaural playback. I am assuming that you want to connect channels 6 and 7 Rear Surround Left and Rear Surround Right (Page 50 in the Manual). You want to run the left channel to the first speaker and right channel output to the other. That way it stays at 8-ohms (which your Receiver will like). Then you can assign that both channels can send out a full range monaural signal for ZONE 2 (page 206). That should work. TL/5103
Bill • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Are they two different colors or can I order see of 2 same color
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Bill: These sell in pairs. Either a pair of Grey or a couple of Brown speakers. Those are your two options... TL/5211
Bill • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Price is for 2 speakers ?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Bill: Price is per pair (2 speakers). TL/5406
Brian • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q need advice/suggestions.  i'm looking for weatherproof speaker options for my back yard.  I have a pool, outdoor kitchen and covered patio area that I'm looking to add the following:2 outdoor patio speakers to be hung under the covered patio area.  2 or more speakers to place around the pool (3 or 4 speakers may be necessary to cover the entire area). Of course, these will need to be water/weather proof. I also want to place a TV for "game night".  This will require a proper home theater receiver that will allow me to attach the TV via HDMI and a Chromecast (or similar) device via HDMI to the receiver.  The proper receiver will allow me to switch from TV to music streaming.  I will also need the ability to play some speakers without playing others (and play all speakers when desired).  Definitely want good sound and enough power to increase volume to a nice level should we have a pool party.  thank you for your advice.

A Hi Brian:You should check out our Upload Your Plans Option. It is a free service where you have already supplied some useful information. We typically ask for you to submit either a line drawing or Blueprint of your outdoor layout. Additional images of the pool, Kitchen Area, and covered structure is helpful as well. Are you planning a 5.1 or 7.2 Home Theater speaker system as well (thus the Audio Video Receiver)? I have been designing outdoor systems for more than eight years now at OSD Audio, and I am excited with all the new products featuring the latest technology. But I need more information. You can also contact me directly at tim@osdaudio.com. Please include a phone number; it is also helpful to discuss one on one. I am in the Northwest, West Coast time.TL/5598
