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 75 watts 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 70-volt 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).

  • Gold-plated spring compression binding posts for optimum connectivity
  • Sturdy fiberglass reinforced plastic frame
  • Powder-coated rust-resistant 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!

39 Questions asked on 5.25" High Definition Outdoor Patio Speaker Pair w/ Optional 70V, White or Black - AP525

Russell Tomaszewski • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Whats the proper speaker wire? 16 gauge 24 gauge ?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Russell, For runs up to 100ft you can use the standard 16-2 for this speaker. 100-150 ft you should use a 14 gauge, after 150ft I would recommend a 12 gauge speaker cable CL We also offer a four conductor 16 and 14 gauge if you were to add an in-line volume control to your outdoor location. The four conductor would be from the Amplifier/Receiver to the Volume control then the 2 conductor to the indivdual speaker. The length to gauge ratio will be the same.

hamish • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q The web description says they're weatherproof but the instructions in the box says they're not waterproof so hide them from the weather under the eaves?! I have attached them to an outside wall exposed to the rain - is the weather going to damage them? If so the online description is misleading.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Hamish: These speakers are sealed unlike some of our Patio speakers that feature a tuning port that has tendency to fill the speaker cabinet up with water when exposed to direct rain or snow. The AP525 feature stainless steel componets and rust-proof aluminum grills. You should be fine... some people bring their speakers inside when they know they're not going to listen to them for an extended period. TL
David Jacobs • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I understand that the sender must be plugged in to an a/c outlet. What are the requirements of the outdoor speakers as to wireing or power?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi David: These Patio speakers are not wireless. They need a hard wired signal from the music source either the Amplifier or Receiver connected by speaker wire. We recommend 16 gauge two conductor for both the left and right speaker up to 100 foot from the source (14 Gauge for longer runs). The speakers receives the powered signal from the source through the speaker wires. We stock the recommended speaker wire which features a CL3 rating approved for in-wall and outdoor installation. Check out the in-wall speaker wire, CL-3 in 50, 100 and 250 foot lengths under the audio/video cables tab. TL
Seth Potash • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can the swivel bracket me mounted on the ceiling and if so, can the bracket be tightened where it attaches to the speaker to keep the speaker in position once mounted?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Seth: The bracket is designed to mount either vertically or horizontially so the set screws were designed to tighten the speaker in place. You just need to make sure the brackets are secured to the ceiling. TL
