Designed for both residential and commercial applications, the AP850 outdoor patio speaker is a customer and installer favorite due to its high-quality design on the inside and its tough exterior outside. Supplying high-end sound quality sound without the high-end price tag, this outdoor speaker can be mounted under patio eaves in homes or can be used in commercial applications such as ball parks, hotels, theme parks and other outdoor spaces where PA and clear background sound is required. What makes the AP850 different from pricey conventional 2-way outdoor is the componentry. We don’t skimp on what we know is important, such as the 8” polypropylene woofer that has the power and flexibility to cover all the low and mid-range frequencies. The AP850 also steps it up in the high end with a 1” ferrofluid-cooled tweeter that produces tight and highly distinguishable high notes and vocals. This durable outdoor patio speaker is rated at 180W with plenty of power to spare to crank up the tunes without distortion at high volumes. Designed for outdoor conditions with weather-resistant components, the sturdy ABS polymer enclosure and rust-resistant grille is ideal for patios, decks and overhangs covering areas up to 800 square feet. The AP850 speakers come with matching mounting brackets that allow for 180-degree swivel and 60 degree tilt, mounted either horizontally or vertically. For the best protection, we recommend installing these speakers in a covered area such as beneath eaves and overhangs.

  • Rugged outdoor patio speaker pair for commercial and residential applications
  • Power handling is up to 180W (90x2)
  • All-weather enclosure resists harsh weather conditions

  • Rigid, acoustically inert enclosure, silicone-sealed internal cabinetry and driver
  • Rust-resistant aluminum grille
  • Includes mounting hardware
  • Available in black or white
Better Cone Materials Equal Better Sound
In addition to a weather-resistant enclosure, the AP850 includes an 8” polypropylene woofer. Polypropylene is a popular speaker material due to the added stiffness and durability PP offers over paper cones. Polypropylene cone woofers produce rich and detailed low- and mid-range and very balanced sound overall. For high end, we include a 1” ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeter. This specialty tweeter material is well suited for outdoor applications because it is made from microscopic iron particles suspended in a non-conducting viscous oil which helps dissipate heat and promotes longevity.

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!

38 Questions asked on 8" High Definition 2-Way Weather Resistant Outdoor Patio Speaker Pair, Black or White - AP850

Gary • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Why are the 850's rated at 47hz bass cut off and the 840's at 30hz ?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Both speakers are 90dB (very efficient) and are rated up to 200 watts. The rule of thumb is that the lower frequency response the more power the speakers will take to produce the lower frequencies. The AP850 costs more for several reasons. The AP850 features a 70 Volt tap that gives you the option to use it in a standard two channel system or 70 Volt commercial setup. It also features a two-inch soft dome tweeter for a more defined top end, which is more appealing in commercial applications where they are utilized more for background music. Either speaker is an excellent choice; it just comes down to your individual application TL/MA
Jeff • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q i want to be able to run radio and ipod on these speakers. what equipment is recommended?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Jeff, You can connect your iPod to our AMP200 with a simple RCA to mini cable (product code OSD-MS-3ft). This cable connects into the back of the amp with RCAs (red and white) and into the headphone jack of your iPod. Radio would be done the same way, with an RCA or and RCA to mini. CL/MA
MARCO • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I S THE AP840 OR AP850 A 3 WAYS SPEAKERS??
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Marco: Both the AP850 and AP840 are 2 way speakers featuring a 8" Mid-bass Driver and 1" Tweeter. Both feature dual tuning ports. TL
Bryan Espy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Guys, I noticed on one of the pictures that this speaker cabinet appears to have a pair of 3/8" threaded mounting holes... can someone confirm? I planning on building a custom ceiling speaker mount, so I need to know the hold sizes, threading, width, etc. Thanks! bradesp
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Bryan, On the back of the AP850 there are four mounting screws that are 1/4". They are set 4?" x 2" apart so that is vertically 4?" apart and horizontally 2" apart. There are also two side mounting holes that are 4" apart. CL/MA
Scott • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, Does the AP850 sound any better than the AP840? I don't want to spend more for the AP850 if both sound the same. I don't need to use these in a commercial application, just want them for hot tub.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Scott, I personally think the AP850's are worth the price difference. They are going to produce better quality sound. Before you purchase take a look at the AP650's They are the equivalent of the AP850's but in a smaller size. We show an image with a dollar bill that will help you judge the size of the speakers better. I think the AP650's are the perfect size, and they sound great! Top notch sound quality. This is relative to the area you are trying to cover though- If you would consider your area large- go with the AP850's CL
