The Outdoor Rock Speaker OSD Audio RS850 is OSD's flagship rock speaker which is an excellent addition to your garden, poolside area or anywhere else in your landscape.

It comes in sandstone canyon brown and granite gray.

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.

36 Questions asked on 8" 2-Way High Fidelity 200W Rock Speaker, Sandstone Brown or Granite Grey, Single - RS850

Mario • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q which speakers would you recomend as best option to be powered by a Sonos amp? I have a set of Bose now and I need the volume up very high before they get rocking. No pun intended.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Mario: Your best bet would be the RS670 one because they are in stock (the RS850 are out to July). Plus they are more efficient at 90dB sensitivity and would be better matched to your SONOS Connect Amplifier which is limited to driving a single pair at 55 watts per channel. The RS670 are rated to 150 watts. A problem with most outdoor setups is they try to get away with one big speaker instead of multiple speakers strategically placed around the pool area, like near the hot tub area, outdoor barbeque, fire pit or even just to cover the pool. We would be more than happy to make some recommendations based on your application. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. tim@osdaudio.com TL/ 5004
Bill Phillips • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q What’s the main difference between the RX805 and the RS670 rock speakers ? I bought two of the RS670 last year and one stopped working
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Bill: The RX series is our entry level Rock speakers. The RS is the step up usually featuring a more elaborate cabinet and more expensive internal components. The RX805 features an 8.0 driver; the RS670 has a 6.5" driver. Both have a low frequency down to 35Hz. Note: the RS850 is our top of the line rock. Did you attempt to replace the single RS670? It does have a 1-year warranty. Try contacting our RMA department. TL/5207
Chris • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have a small like 40x40 backyard that we like to do outdoor movies in. We have a blow up screen and projector. Im looking to setup some kind of speaker arraignment so that we can get loud enough sound to hear with out overpowering the neighbors. We currently just use a couple blue tooth speakers but the sound isnt loud enough. Would you suggest these speakers as an option? if so how many do you think we would need?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Chris: RS850 is an excellent speaker. And if you were looking for just a single pair, they are a good choice. But what else can you tell me about your setup? Is there a pool, Firepit or a dedicated viewing area to consider? Are you designing a sound system to support your movie night only or something to enjoy anytime you are in your backyard? I would be happy to discuss the complete plan with you. tim@osdaudio.com; think about a rough drawing of your layout, possible blueprints or images from different angles. Also, have you considered what you want to use as your source or sources? TL/5465
Howard • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q There are various discrepancies between the owners manual and the web page for the RS-850 as follows: Dimensions: H15" x W 19" x D16" VS H13" x W17.5 x D16" Tweeter: 2" VS 1" Power Handling: 300W VS 200W Frequency Response: 20Hz to 20kHz VS 28Hz to 20kHz Sensitivity: 91dB VS 88dB Weight: 28lbs VS 16lbs I would like to know which specifications are correct. Thanks
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Howard: The RS850 current specs are the ones you find in the Bullet Points: Dimensions: H13" x W17.5 x D16" Tweeter: 1" Soft Dome Tweeter Frequency Response: 28Hz to 20kHz Sensitivity: 88dB Weight: 16 pounds The Owner's Manual you found has outdated specs. I am not only trying to confirm the specs but need to take new images to verify our current photos on the web. Thanks for pointing out the discrepancies. TL/5486
Tony C • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q My pool area is 40x50. Is the RS850 overkill? I’ll have 4. 1 in each corner. Also, which amp do you recommend?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tony: I would recommend a combination of our AMP300 and a Pre-One Preamplifier. The reason I suggest adding the Pre-One is so you can switch the input signal to Mono since you will have a long distance between each RS850 (a great choice). I also highly recommend adding our NERO Link Wi-Fi streamer as one of your sources connected to the Aux input of the Pre-One. I can explain further if you would like to discuss your setup; tim@osdaudio.com. TL/5492
