August 29, 2019

I currently own your AP840 Outdoor Patio Speaker 8" 200W High Performance 2-Way speakers and have installed on my rear covered deck that measures 24 x 26 ft and has vaulted trussed ceiling. I have these hung on one side pointing down and they sound great! I want to add 2 more speakers to get a more "Surround" sound when listening.  I am powering via my Denon AVR-X1100W receiver using the Multi Zone Amp feature. This provides enough power for the existing speakers however only offers 2 speaker outputs. I wanted to ask these questions: 1. Would these A670's be a good addition?  2. Would you recommend a add on Amplifier to accomodate the addtional speakers? If so which one?  The receiver does have a Zoen 2 Pre Out to connect an amp. Would I need a 4 channel due to 4 speakers?

Look forward to hearing from you soon so I can take advantage of your sale going on. Please advise! Thx! Tom Badinghaus 

1 Answer
Hi Tom:

Based upon the DENON Specs, I would suggest adding our AMP200 to the Zone 2 Preamp output to add the second pair of speakers for your application. The AMP200 has Speaker A and Speaker B output and can play separately or together. The DENON rated at 80 Watts at 8-ohm which is ok to drive a single 8-ohm pair of speakers like the AP840. But when adding a second pair of 8-ohm speakers in parallel (both speakers connected to the Surround Back Left and Right Speaker level Outputs), the load drops to 4-ohm. The AMP200 also creates a 4-ohm load when both Speaker A and Speaker B are played together (also considered a Parallel connection). The difference is the AMP200 is a High Current Amplifier stable down to 2 -ohm. When the AMP sees a 4-ohm load the current demand more than doubles, and more current produces a dramatic increase of Heat in the Audio Output section. The difference is the amp has ample internal heatsink (That is why it weighs 24 pounds) which the output devices are mounted directly to the metal. The amp is built to do 4-ohm. Running it at 8-ohm is like driving a Corvette on the highway at 35 miles an hour.

I am thinking about using this line of speakers for height speakers for dts-x and dolby atmos. Which speaker with the 6.5 inch woofer do you recommend?
1 Answer
Hi Mike: We typically like to recommend our ACE670 6.5" iN CEILING ANGLED SPEAKERS IDEAL FOR SURROUND OR EFFECTS SPEAKERS (Dolby ATMOS OR DTS; X). The AP650 would be your best choice for a Patio Indoor/Outdoor speaker due to the unique two way mounting bracket that both tilts and swivels so you can aim it like the Angled speaker. TL/5332

May 11, 2017
Hi, which AMP would you recommend to power 2 pairs of these speakers? Would the AMP120 be sufficient or do you suggest going for the AMP200? Thank you.
1 Answer
Hi Tim: Your best choice is the AMP200 a true High Current Amplifier that is 2 ohm stable. And at 4 ohm with the 2 pair running at once the 4 ohm load demands higher output which the AMP200 has no problem delivering. We do have a new Digital Amplifier the XMP100 which will play 2 speakers at a time since it is 93% efficient versus the AMP120 at 50%. It just does not have the headroom as the AMP200. And the A and B switch work the same as the AMP120 where you push speaker A and speaker B pops out. You can push both in at the same time which we would not recommend on the AMP120. TL/4355

I'm looking at all the 6.5" patio speakers and am confused by the differences between the 640, 645, and 670 models. Do they have different sound quality or just different appearance/construction?
1 Answer
Hi Brian, These speakers are all different cosmetically. The AP670 features a cone material made from treated paper whereas the AP5640 and AP645 have polypropylene cones. The AP645 handles 150 Watts versus 120 for the AP670. Things to look at in the specifications: Frequency Response: How low does it go... AP670: 44Hz AP640: 39Hz AP645: 37Hz Typically, speakers differ in ways you cannot see (i.e., the components used in the crossover or the size of the magnet or voice coil of the speaker). All of these speakers are designed specifically for the cabinet space. The AP670 is a much larger cabinet than the other two. The AP645 features a tuned port that makes the speaker think it is working in a larger cabinet. We determine the price of the speaker based upon the bottom line price of the build of materials. The good thing is we are able to offer all three of these speakers for much less than comparable speakers on the market. TL

I notice most of the reviews for these speakers are of people who are using them on a patio which I'm assuming, whilst theyre outdoors, may have some kind of covering. Can these speakers be placed directly exposed to rain, weather etc?
2 Answers
Steve, Rest assured that OSD outdoor speakers are constructed with high-grade material that can withstand rain, snow, wind, pool chemicals, and even salt. For customers in freezing cold temperatures, we do recommend they bring in the speakers in or cover them with plastic bags just to be safe but OSD’s reputation for building rugged outdoor speakers that will last for years will never change. CL

Hi Steve, We definitely recommend utilizing some sort of cover to help increase the performance and prolong the life of the product. All of the components are weather resistant, including aluminum or stainless steel hardware and ABS plastic housings. In some cases, we utilize a port to optimize the size of the enclosure in conjunction with the drivers selected. In these cases, it is important to shield the speaker from the direct elements. TL/MA

If I mount these out in the open will they have good base and overall sound. Some people recommend you put them against a wall for opt sound. Is that necessary? If I put them in the open on 4x4s will I have to mount a piece of plywood behind them? And if so, how big a piece will be necessary?
1 Answer
Hi Brian: If you are placing speakers out in the open with full exposure to the elements you might want to look at the AP650 versus the AP670. The AP650 is a sealed design with a IP-6X weather resistant rating (our highest rated speakers). The AP670 has a dual port design which means if has to be shielded from direct exposure to the elements. The AP650 and AP525 are part of our newest series that features a unique Mounting bracket that swivels and tilts for more flexibility when mounting. The Cabinet is stronger and more durable as well. The AP670 has been a great speaker for us but based upon your application I would recommend the AP650. Higher Power rating (150 to 120), Slightly higher sensitivity (91dB vs 90dB) and lower Frequency Response (37Hz vs 44 Hz). Regarding adding a backboard there is typically more effective if you mount the speaker in a corner where it might have more bottom end from coupling from the adjacent wall. I would first place a 4 x 4 foot board on the back of the 4 x 4 post, then try it on the front of the 4 x 4 between the speaker and post. You might try reducing the board to a 2 x 2 and compare as well. Good luck TL/4424

Why is there rust showing up on the grills after one year ? I have placed these under a roof over hang and pergola. I have contacted your service department by email twice, over the past week, and have heard no response.
1 Answer
Hi Jack: These are steel grills with a heavy duty powder coating that are not supposed to rust for some time. Any type of scratch or something that might have knocked the Powder coating may cause some rusting to the grill below. In reality when we cut the perforation holes in the sheet metal and then bend them so they can be dropped into the slot the metal starts to rust. You try to make sure to cover the grill with the Powder Coating to slow down that process. I am assuming you might also live near the Ocean where salt water gets into the air. Either way this has been a problem for some speakers and we are in the process of changing some of the grills to Aluminum. Try calling our Offices at 562-697-2600 ex 101 will get you to the receptionist and she can direct you to the RMA department or one of the Customer Service consultants. TL/

I have a question about the performance rating: Your manual indicates 120 Watts @ 8 Ohms for the AP670 speakers. However, for the units it indicates "speaker pair." So, is the power rating 120 Watts per PAIR of speakers (i.e. 60 Watts per speaker)? Or is it 120 Watts per speaker? Also, would this be considered the dynamic/max rating? Or RMS? Thanks!
1 Answer
Hi Chris: These are rated at 120 Watts per speaker RMS with a peak around 200 watts. They were rated as the one of the top Patio speakers due the their Bass response. Due to the ported design they are not recommended for direct exposure to the elements. Our AP650 have the highest rating for direct exposure to the elements. TL/4360

I bought one of your green subwoofer for the backyard ,where is the best place to place it up against the fence in the corner in the middle? Thanks
1 Answer
Hi Dock: Every yard is different and Sub woofer placement can be critical. I would experiment and try listening to it in multiple locations focusing on listening from the spot you will be the most. Say while you are in the Hot tub as an example. The Fence and corner will have different effects. It is the same as finding the ideal location for sub woofer in a room. Due to the large sign waves there tends to be certain dead spots which is why many companies suggest using multiple subs. There is another technique where you place the sub in the spot you will be listening from then walk around to the three potential locations and see which one is the best. Then switch it to that location and see if the sub still sounds the same or if the fence or corner change the characteristics. Good luck... TL/3656

What's the minimum power required for these speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Chris, Typically you want to give a speaker at least 20 watts to get it running efficiently. Now, with only 20 watts you're going to be very limited in power/volume of that speaker, but that would be the minimum. These speakers will play best with approximately 60 - 90 watts each. -BM 2498

I am trying to chose between the AP670 and the AP650. These speakers will be mounted on a screened in porch approximately 15 ft apart from one another. They are being powered by a Harman Kardon AVR2650 that has plenty of power. All the write-ups look encouraging, should I pay the extra for the AP650"s?
1 Answer
Hi Brendan, Excellent question! The AP650s are our high-definition 6.5" patio speakers, so they will give you a higher quality sound than the AP670s will. Although the AP670s are really nice sounding speakers, you will get better bass response and overall clarity from the AP650s. If you can manage your budget to fit the 650, we definitely encourage you to try them out. Let us know if you need anything else answered. Thanks! -BM 2313

Hi Fan Z: The OSD AP670 do not have the ability to stand on a shelf or on a flat concrete surface. Checkout the AP650 for a better choice where it can stand on its own on a flat surface and goes a little lower on the low end 37Hz compared to 44Hz on the AP670. Also 150W to 120W of the AP670, so will handle more power. They weigh about the same 8.5 to 9 pounds each speaker. TS-2237
