OSD Audio AP525 outdoor patio speakers are extremely popular, made of composite resin with a low resonator cabinet, they're a great value because they provide remarkable sound. These speakers have a clean, modern look, so they make a great addition to mid-sized decks and patios. With 150W of power, a built-in sound port for excellent bass and a weather-resistant design, the AP525 gives you great sound without the price tag of other brands. They're available in black and white, and if you'd like, you can get the 70V switchable version. The 70-volt switchable models lets installers switch to the right wattage tap without soldering, tapping or disassembly (you usually don't need this feature for typical home installations). Designed for outdoor conditions with weather-resistant components, the sturdy ABS polymer enclosure and rust-resistant aluminum grille is ideal for patios, decks and overhangs.

Features:
  • Mounting bracket is designed to mount either vertically or horizontally
  • Available with 70V switch for commercial installations
  • Gold-plated spring compression binding posts for optimum connectivity
  • Sturdy fiberglass reinforced plastic frame
  • Powder-coated rust-resistant Aluminum grille
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!

Bill • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Can you recommend an amp that would pair nicely with these speakers? I'm not exactly sure how to match the watts, ohms and all that other stuff. Just want to make sure I get the most out of these speakers. Thanks...
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Bill: If you are just looking for the best match for powering a single pair of theses speakers within a budget than our AMP120 is your best bet. This is an amplifier referred to as an 8 ohm amp. It features 50 watts of continous output (RMS) with 75 to 100 watts peak power. It has an A and B speaker output so you can connect two pair of 8 ohm speakers but does not recommend playing both speakers at the same time for extended periods. When you connect two 8 ohm speakers (one pair to A and a second pair to B) it cuts the impedance down to 4 ohms and demands more current from the amplifier. This amp will tend to shut off when you drive the two 8 ohm speakers at the same time at high volumes. It actually goes into protection. The better choice is to look at the OSD AMP200 which is considered a high current amplifier which has no problem powering two or even three pair of 8 ohm speakers at the same time at whatever volume. It also features fully discrete components for true audiphile sound quality. This is great building block for a stereo system that can be expanded in the future and the best match if your budget allows it. Thank you for considering OSD, also checkout our full line of speaker selectors and volume controls for additonal options. TL
Tom • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Would AP525 speakers work well for a ski boat? I'm considering because they can be moved about the boat and hung on the windshield while docked or beached (these would be wired as the rear pair with a fixed pair of Sony 5" x 4ohm speakers wired as front along with an Infinity self powered sub-woofer connected to line level jacks). The receiver/amp is a Jensen JMS2212 with specs as follows: Operating Voltage . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

HI Tom, The AP525 will work fine for your application. I would recommend looking for a true Marine audio speaker to replace your Sony speaker. There are a lot of speakers designed for flush-mount application for the Marine industry that work for direct replacement for the Sony with no additional modification. TL/MA
Thor Johnson • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM How do I compare the AP525 and AP520 speakers? My area is under of the roof of an open porch in coastal New England. I'm powering the porch and small yard, and am replacing 5.25" speakers which have aged with time. What are the advantages/disadvantages of these two models, please?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Thor: Both feature excellent sound for the buck,but the Sealed AP520 would be a better choice especially considering your environment (coastal New England). The AP525 is a ported design that you have to consider when finding the proper placement. With the port you need to make sure it does not have direct exposure to the elements where it might fill up with water. i hope that helps. TL
Patrick • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I'm planning to install one speaker inside a screen porch and the other outside on the side of my house (vinyl siding) for my deck that will be exposed to Minnesota elements. Should I not go with the AP525 since it's ported and get the AP520's? Or what's the best speaker for my situation?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Patrick: Yes the AP520 would be a better choice because of the Sealed design. TL
Matt Benes • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I am looking at buying these for my covered patio. What volume controller would you recommend to use with these - the 100W or 300W? I can't remember what my Sony receiver puts out, is it bad to upsize to the 300W when my receiver is only pushing out lets say 50W each? Thanks for you help!
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Matt, The AP525 are 120 w peak, the volume control is 100 w peak. It would be safe to say this will be fine for your application. But if you ever added a larger speaker you might end up needing the 300W plus the 300W volume control ships free so It might be worth it to just go with the 300 in my opinion. CL
