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.

samer • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Hello OSD Pls. Let me know do I need amplifier to send sound to it !! And do you deliver to egypt Thanks
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Samer, Check out the AMP120 or AMP200. The AMP120 will suffice for a pair of the RS850s, but does have limited power. If you really want to drive these speaker to their full potential, go with the AMP200. It's a great amplifier with tons of power and it is one of the most efficient amps on the market. Yes, we can ship to Egypt. Simply choose either USPS Priority Mail International or UPS Worldwide for shipping. UPS Worldwide may be more expensive, so you may want to try Priority International. Thanks! -BM 2495
Chris Popp • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Will you sell me just the fake rock speaker enclosure (no speaker/components)?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Chris, I'm not quite sure if we have any RS850 rock shells available by themselves. It's possible that we have some defective returns that we could sell you but you would probably need to remove the inside parts yourself if we do. Call us to discuss. Thanks.
Mike • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM This is actually the second time I've missed a batch of these awesome speakers. BTW, I did include my email to get notification when more become available. BUT, When do you expect to have more in stock?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Mike, We should have them back in-stock in September or October. I would recommend the RS810 though, it's a great sounding speaker - many customers like the RS810 over the RS850 in fact.
Luke • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have a pioneer VSX-524 reciever. Does it have enough power to run two of the RS850 speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Luke, It looks like it puts out 80 watts per channel at 8ohms, so that should run the RS850 just fine.
