Other Product Info

Audiophile sound. Guaranteed to sound better than Bose, Yamaha, Polk and Infinite speakers or your money back. The AP525 patio speaker provides clear, dynamic sound with rich bass for small to medium areas. Feature Weatherproof against all weather conditions including salt, water, pool chemicals, & more.
120W power handling for small to medium areas
Built in SoundPort for better bass response
A great alternative to higher priced JBL, Polk or Bose speakers. It has the same performance with a 5yr warranty.
Our outdoor speakers are designed to withstand the worst weather conditions. From rain to snow, or saltwater and the sun’s harmful UV rays,
With the gold-plated binding posts, solid brass and stainless steel hardware and rust-proof aluminum grille, the resonance-free, mineral filled composite cabinet can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations from –20F to 200F.

What do you mean by 70V switchable?
Some speakers, like the AP525s, are equipped with an "on the fly" 70v switch assembly. This allows an installer to rapidly switch to the correct 70v wattage tap each installation may require without soldering, tapping or disassembly and reassembly, which normally complicates installations. You usually don't need use this feature for your typical home application.

What gauge speaker wire should I use?
For runs up to 100ft, standard 16-2 wire will be fine for this speaker. For runs, 100-150 ft 14 gauge. Beyond 150ft, we recommend a 12 gauge speaker cable. We also offer a four conductor 16 and 14 gauge wire to add an in-line volume control to your outdoor location.

Are there any special precautions I should take to protect my outside speakers in winter?
Not necessarily, however, if you live in an area prone to extreme weather such as sub-zero temperatures, you may want to cover the speakers with a plastic bag or bring them inside to help prevent components from absolute freezing during the long winter months.

For 70V Versions, please choose from the color drop down options

What are the size of the speaker ?
1 Answers
HI Rod: The internal drivers feature a 5.25 Polypropylene woofer and a 1".0 Silk Soft Dome Tweeter. This is the physical size of the speakers: Dimensions: 9.7 inches high, 6.6 inches wide and 7.5 inches long. Is that all you need to know? Note there is also an upgrade speaker, the AP650 which features a step up 6.5" woofer and 1" silk tweeter as well. Both speakers are totally sealed design with a IP6X weatherproof certification. It also comes in a choice of white or black and features a two way mounting bracket which has a 180 degree swivel and 60 degree tilt for maximum flexibility when installing.. TL/4605

from Canada asked:
March 30, 2017
Hi guys, I would need -6 pairs of speakers (10-12 total) and I have two zones (indoor and on the patio of my restaurant). I read that 70V configuration would best fit my needs. My question is what amp do I need? Should I get two amps to have 2 different volume levels (indoor and outdoor)? Or should I buy only one bigger amp... but then how to separate zones? Also, how can I estimate the wattage I need? Is 10-15 watts per speaker loud enough? I have roughly 1,800 sq ft indoor and 2,000sq ft outdoor. Thanks
1 Answers
Hi Felix: I see you are thinking of using the AP525 for the outdoor patio/deck. What are looking to use indoors? In-Ceiling or the on-wall patio speaker like the AP525? I would like to see what your layout looks like and possible image of the areas you want to place your speakers? And what sources are you going to use, Streaming, Connected to your TV's or CD player/iPod? Contact me at tim @osdaudio.com and let me know more about your system. Looking forward to seeing more of your project. TL/4279

will these work with sonus? Or what would I need to make them work?
1 Answers
Hi Mark: These speakers will work fine with the SONOS product. Either the SONOS Connect Amplifier or you could go with a SONOS connect Pre-amp and our AMP120. Either way you need an amplifier to drive these speakers whether its built in with the SONOS Connect Amplifier or adding our OSD AMP120 to the Connect Pre-Amp (no internal power). Good luck: TL/3790

Bill
from Boston asked:
March 17, 2012
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...
1 Answers
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

Carl
from New Jersey asked:
June 7, 2017
Are you able to use the AP525 speakers with optional 70v on your home stereo that supplies enough watts, or do you need a 70v amp to power them?
1 Answers
Hi Carl: You need a 70V Amplifier to take advantage of the 70V taps on the AP525. Otherwise you use the 8 ohm setting on the AP525. The big advantage of the 70V system is the fact you can run multiple speakers without worrying about the impedance of the speakers that the amplifier has to deal with. 70V is high impedance which relies more on how much wattage you have available. Then you calculate how many speakers and what the 70V tap setting will be for each. That sum total needs less than 80% of the available wattage from your 70V amplifier. This especially helpful on projects where you need to have lots of speakers connected all together. The trade off is Frequency Response and overall sound quality is not as good. Ideal for background music or announcements (where a Microphone might be involved).

Jonathan
from Virginia Beach, Va asked:
June 6, 2017
We do not have an option to protect these under eves, so these would have to be out in the elements. We have tried Yamaha, JBL speakers, and the brackets and grills become rusty over time and are getting chalky from the sun. We get intense sun everyday, and some heavy rain storms. My concern is will the cabinet get yellowed and chalky? And is the hardware able to withstand the elements without getting rusty?
1 Answers
Hi Jonathan: The AP525 and AP650 are our two highest rated weatherproof speakers; IP6X. They both feature a strong composite cabinet and are 100% sealed. Also includes a unique Mounting bracket that swivels and tilts. Available in black or white. TL/4406

Jill
from Illinois asked:
February 24, 2017
We have a rather large patio and garden area that we would like to play music to 50' - 100' or farther. The speakers would be out in the Midwest weather, summer and winter. Is this speaker the most economical choice? How does this one compare to your AP450 for my purpose?
1 Answers
Hi Jill: The AP525 is a great choice since it and our larger AP650 are both our highest rated weatherproof speakers. Both feature a sealed design and can be exposed to the elements more so than a speaker featuring tuning ports. You will need at least two pair to deliver enough output for your Patio area. Typically you want a stereo pair to be mounted 8 to 190 feet apart. They also feature a unique bracket that both swivels and tilts inward. Please let me know if you need additional help with your setup. We have an area where you can upload your plans along with an explanation of what equipment you intend to use in conjunction with the patio speakers. My contact is tim@osdaudio.com Good luck TL/4231

July 12, 2013
Need 70v cabinet speakers for an indoor p.a. system. running 9 speakers x 3 rooms (3 amps). 99% of use for lectures, announcements, etc. Are these good for this application. What size amp should be used to support 9 daisy-chained speakers? Are the 70v speakers same price and what is delivery time once ordered? Bob/Chino Hills, CA
1 Answers
Bob, Thank you for you question. Yes, the AP525 70v version will provide good clarity and volume. They have 70v taps for 2.5w, 5w, 10w, 15w, and 25w. Thus, you would need a 70v amplifier that provides anywhere from 25 watts to 225 watts depending on how loud you wish to have them. If using our PA90 70v amplifier, it pushes out 60 watts, so you would need to set each of the 9 speakers to 5w or less. The 70v version is $10 more than the standard 8ohm version. We are located in California and can ship same day as long as the order is placed before our 3pm cutoff time. -BM 2078

April 16, 2013
I want to go with a pair of these with the SUB200 in the Sub-Sat configuration but I am not sure what size amp to use. Any suggestions? Can I brige the amp in this configuration to get the most power? Deck is 14' X 17' with pergola top. Would the AP670 sound better than the 525's with this deck area?
1 Answers
Hi Mike, Rather than bridging it into mono, the better option is to run our OMSUB200 outdoor omni subwoofer in stereo with these speakers using our AMP200 amp. The AP670 patio speakers have a larger woofer and higher wattage so you would have more volume; however, the AP525s use higher quality polypropylene woofers. Both speaker pairs are comparable to the AP650s, which would be the best choice for a larger patio. CL/MA 1804

Hi Jose, To connect the four outdoor patio speakers to the receiver, use the Front Left and Right and Rear Left and Right. If you are using a home theater receiver tailored to surround sound, go to the menu functions and change it to stereo mode. If it's in stereo mode, you can connect one pair to the front and one pair to the rear. CL/MA 1677

Jeff
from San Francisco asked:
November 9, 2012
I'm in the process of hooking 525s up to a OVC-300 and an AMP-120. So far so good. My question is, how do I try to find the correct volume output from the amplifier so that I get full rotation out of the ovc300? I'm getting distortion at the first click when I set the amplifier's volume too loud. It seems that I can only turn the amplifier's control up to about 40% before I get distortion from the volume controller at it's lowest settings. When I turn ovc300 up to about the 5th click, the distortion seems to disappear, and I can begin to give it some more power from the amp. Should I have purchased a different outdoor volume control (the non-adjustable one?)
1 Answers
Hi Jeff, Make sure the OVC300 is set to 1/2x internally. It should come this way by default but it's a good idea to double check. To set the volume, turn the OVC300 all the way up. Then from the AMP120 turn the volume up to the maximum level you'll desire for the AP525's. Then turn the volume down to a comfortable level at the OVC300. This way, you have the ability to turn the volume up when you are in the zone. CL/MA 1369

I am trying to decide between the AP525 and AP650 for my screened in porch. The porch is about 20x20 (400 sq feet) and the speakers will be mounted on the outside edge of the porch facing inwards towards the house walls. The porch has a couch about 12-15 ft from the speakers. I am thinking these for the screened in porch and AP650 for the outside and open deck (a bigger space that also has a patio on the end). Both sets of speakers to have OVC300 Volume controls and all powered via the AMP200 (about 80ft run to speakers). Ideas? Recommendations?
1 Answers
Hi Anthony, I like your idea to use the AP525's for your smaller area and AP650's for the larger area. The AP650's are a perfect size and put our quite a bit of bass. The AP525's are plenty loud for your screened porch. You have the right volume control and the perfect amp. This is gonna sound awesome! CL 1273

Matt Benes
from Lincoln, NE asked:
August 3, 2012
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!
2 Answers
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
Customer Service - Q&A
on August 3, 2012
Hi Matt: You can use either, but it is always better to have the larger Transformers. It is all about when you actually turn the volume down you are redirecting the signal into the Transformers. If you were to have too much rated power than the rating of the Volume Control you would saturate the coils and create distortion and possibly damage the connections of the Volume Control. The safe bet is to always go with the largest choice for it to be most effective when you are attenuating the signal counterclockwise. Most people think they are turning the volume up but this is a passive device. When you set it up you want to adjust your source volume (Receiver or Amplifier) to the highest level, then you have to control to turn the volume down. As CL said the the OVC300 or SVC300 are your best choices depending on your application (outside or inside). TL

I was looking for a set of outdoor speakers for my newly built 300 sqft deck. I am a big Klipsch fan and use them exclusivly inside my home. Regardless, I just couldnt justify spending $450 for a set of Klipsch outdoor speakers. I searched the internet and stumbled upon OSD. I am so glad I did. These speakers sound fantastic and they are LOUD. Decent bass for a pair of 5.25" drivers, but what really made them come alive was hooking up an old 8" 100watt sub I had sitting around in the basement. I am so happy with this purchase. We just bought the house last August. I hope my neighbors share my taste in music. They're gonna hear it! Great job OSD!

So far the speakers have performed great. Very easy to install. Had some old KLH speakers that lasted 10+ years outside ans was time for some new ones. I can not believe the difference! These speakers have excellent clarity and really good bass as well. Hope they last 10 years as well.

As good as expected
so far ok, but mounting bracket is flimsy but should be ok as these are light; we are using this in our horse barn; There is a lot of dust and some moisture; so far so good, but it will take time to see how well they will hold up over time under these difficult conditions

Perfect for smaller spaces
I have both the AP525 and AP650. I tested both using a Yamaha RX-V665 on the main left and right channels. The AP525 sound fine, but maybe just a little light on the bass on certain songs. In comparison, I find the AP650 to have very full bass across all types of music (not surprisingly). Just for fun, I also toggled this off and on against my Polk RTi A3. Unfortunately, that made the AP525/AP650s sound pretty sad. Buuuuut, when they're out on the patio, they sound great. Cliff notes: AP525 is fine for smaller patios. Step up to the AP650 if you want more support on the low end.
ProsDecent Bass, Well-built, Binding Posts, Clear Mid And High

I would recommend this product
For the price, these speakers have a nice sound and are easy to install. I liked the sound they produce at a low volume. I used a sub to fill in the lows. OSD sells affordable speakers that sound good. Highly recommend

So far so good!
Delivery was prompt and well packaged. Quality construction and unlimited mounting angles. Ours are now located under outdoor shelves near a hot tub. The sound quality is outstanding. Assuming these stand the test of time (weather) in our semi-protected mounting location, we will be very pleased with this purchase.

Outstanding Speakers - Great Value!
I purchased 2 pairs of these speakers to replace older Bose speakers mounted under the roof eaves over a very large paver patio that wraps around the back side of my home. I have one pair covering the east and the other pair covering the north. In a word, the sound quality is REMARKABLE. These speakers sound absolutely fantastic! The bass response is deep, warm and tight. The mids are incredibly well articulated and the highs are sharp and brilliant without being brash or shrill. The stereo imaging is also downright magical - incredible definition - almost similar to high-end headphones that I use in my music recording studio! I'm completely shocked and certainly wasn't expecting anywhere near this kind of sound quality from small outdoor patio speakers. I'm beyond pleased with my purchase and thrilled to get such outstanding speakers for such a great price! Thanks OSD!!

Better than Bose!
I recently added these to a large outdoor patio area. I already have a set of Bose freespace speakers in the general area and these sound better.
