The shape is also designed to withstand large amounts of pressure, extreme temperatures and moisture. Remember though, outdoor speakers are an investment, so take care of them. Storing them away from extreme weather conditions will only lengthen the time you will get enjoying outdoor speakers.

What Kind of Speaker Cable Should I Use?
We recommend using our waterproof wire and wire connectors specifically designed for the outdoors. These speaker cables that can withstand extreme weather conditions like rain, snow and high temperatures and incorporate twice the insulation and a formulated white polyethylene jacket that is U/V resistant. If you plan to bury the cable in the ground, we recommend using direct burial cable.

What’s the main difference between the RX805 and the RS670 rock speakers ? I bought two of the RS670 last year and one stopped working
1 Answer
Hi Bill: The RX series is our entry level Rock speakers. The RS is the step up usually featuring a more elaborate cabinet and more expensive internal components. The RX805 features an 8.0 driver; the RS670 has a 6.5" driver. Both have a low frequency down to 35Hz. Note: the RS850 is our top of the line rock. Did you attempt to replace the single RS670? It does have a 1-year warranty. Try contacting our RMA department. TL/5207

May 23, 2018
which speakers would you recomend as best option to be powered by a Sonos amp? I have a set of Bose now and I need the volume up very high before they get rocking. No pun intended.
1 Answer
Hi Mario: Your best bet would be the RS670 one because they are in stock (the RS850 are out to July). Plus they are more efficient at 90dB sensitivity and would be better matched to your SONOS Connect Amplifier which is limited to driving a single pair at 55 watts per channel. The RS670 are rated to 150 watts. A problem with most outdoor setups is they try to get away with one big speaker instead of multiple speakers strategically placed around the pool area, like near the hot tub area, outdoor barbeque, fire pit or even just to cover the pool. We would be more than happy to make some recommendations based on your application. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. TL/ 5004

Will a 100 watt sherwood amp handle these speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Denny: Yes the Amp will power these speakers but if it is the typical Sherwood Amplifier/Receiver it will say that if recommends 8 or 16 ohm speakers. Which means this is a chip amplifier that has no headroom, no guts and will not provide enough output to take full advantage of these speakers. And you are limited to a single pair with no ability to expand. You should take a look at our AMP200 where you will get plenty of output plus have the ability of adding a second pair and get even more output/coverage. You you could even look at a smaller pair of rocks and power three pair with the AMP200. TL/4379

I have a pair of your rock speakers that have been outside for about 10 years one now has a "deteriorated cone surround" sound. I'd like to replace just that one but all the models have changed. (more than once I believe)the box that the speaker came in is labeled SPGS8##HYPCBG 8" Rock Gray with HYPE in an oval. I did another system for a friend a few years later and bought HF9's I believe that seemed to be the same. Is this RS850 the same as those?
1 Answer
Hi Don: I am not familiar with those model numbers. There is a HF9 speaker from another manufacture with a similar speaker. Both 8" 2 way rock speakers. Our enclosure is a little wider and not as high. The RS 850 is our best selling/Sounding rock speaker in our lineup. Available in Brown or Grey and ours includes free shipping (ours weights 16 lbs vs 18 lbs for HF9.) TL/4425

How far should these speakers be spaced apart - 10-12 ft? RS850 High Fidelity 8.5" Rock Speaker
1 Answer
Hi Paul: Think of a triangle, we recommend 10 to 12 feet apart especially if you are going to be 10 to 20 feet away from the speakers. If you are farther than 20 feet away you could go to 15 feet apart but no more than that. Even at 10 to 12 feet you should angle the speaker in towards a central point at the tip of the triangle. The key is to have the Tweeter focused on that center point. TL/3856

I am looking to purchase rock speakers as a gift for a friend. But do all of these wireless bluetooth speakers need to be connected an amp? Maybe I am looking at the wrong thing. Can you suggest a good pair or wireless bluetooth speakers please. Thank you.
1 Answer
Hi Stacey: These speakers feature a built in Stereo Power Amplifier and Wireless Bluetooth Receiver that are both contained in the master /sync speaker. Therefore it has a external waterproof power supply with a 25 foot cord that powers both the amp and receiver and needs to be plugged into an AC outlet. The second or satellite speaker has to be connected to the master/sync speaker to provide left and right stereo sound (25 foot cord supplied). It syncs up with any Bluetooth enabled device one device at a time. Bluetooth range: 120 feet to 150 feet with an unobstructed line of sight; 50 feet to 75 feet when obstructed. Your results may vary depending upon your actual surroundings. I hope that answers your question TL/ 3737

I got 2 of the BTR-800TT. Can they be hooked up together? I would like one on each end of the pool.
1 Answer
Hi Bill: The BTR-800TT will not be able to Sync up together. The Bluetooth enabled device will only sync up to one or the other not both at the same time. Our BTR-800 Bluetooth Stereo pair has two speakers one being the master which includes built in stereo amplifier plus Bluetooth Receiver. And a second speaker that has to be hardwired to the first (master) speaker. They should be 8 to 12 feet a part for proper stereo separation. Please let us know if the BTR800 will work for your application. TL/3658

from San Francisco Bay area asked:
September 12, 2015
I purchased your BTR-800 rock speakers and for some reason it does not appear I am getting power to them. Your guide talks about having the speakers fully charged, How does that come about? Do the speakers have to be plugged in for a period of time? The connection from the power supply to the master speaker is very difficult to engage and I am not sure if it is fully connected, could this be the problem? Could the transformer be malfunctioning and if so how would I check to make sure it is functioning properly. Thanks Chuck R
1 Answer
Hi Charles, The BTR-800 speakers do not need to be charged. It could be that you don't have the plug facing the correct direction. If you look closely at the end of the plug from the power supply, you will see that there is a flat edge on one side of the circle that matches the shape of the input on the rock speaker. Make sure to line up the edge on the power supply with the edge on the speaker and push it in all the way.

Basically, what would be typically the proper way to connect one RS850? I do not want to ear only one side (left or right). Hope my question is clear enough. Thank you,

Hello, You would run one RS850 off the right channel and another RS850 off the left channel for stereo.

I too am wanting to use Sonos. Would I be better off just using a Connect and attaching it to an amp/receiver to use the larger rock speakers? We have a very open, large area that I had planned to use 2 of the RS850's and then just use a Connect Amp on the smaller outdoor patio speakers. What do you suggest?
1 Answer
Hi Stephanie: I would suggest purchasing our OSD-AMP200 and two OVC300 Volume Controls. And using a single SONOS connect to the AMP200 and have it power your RS-850 Rock speakers on Speaker A and then connect your Patio Speakers to Speaker B output. The Volume Controls should be located somewhere near each pair of speakers. This will allow you to adjust each speaker pair to the other. You can get away with just connecting the AMP200 directly to the two pair of speakers and using the SONOS Connect as your source. TL-2144

July 18, 2013
I have a 2x100W 8ohm amp to power speakers for a very large outdoor area. Because of the large area, I generally play at fairly high volume, which seems to shorten the life of the speakers. How do I choose between the 850, 840 and 805 speakers for this application?
1 Answer
John, Thank you. Well all of our 8" rock speakers can handle anywhere from 175 - 300 watts, so if you're only going to push each speaker with 100 watts, you wouldn't be playing them to their full potential, but you can get the job done. RS850 is our highest quality rock speaker, so this will give you the best sound out of the 8" models, but you will get the best outcome with a high current amplifier such as our AMP200. -BM 2090

How does the RS850 and RS840 rock speakers compare? What's the difference? Thanks
1 Answer
Hi Denny, The RS850 outdoor rock speaker is our top of the line model in that category. It has higher volume capability; a larger tweeter for the highs; and the frequency response goes slightly lower, which translates to more bass. The RS840 pair offers very solid overall performance and are popular for their economical price. CL/MA 1846

2 Answers
Katherine, These speakers would be powered with an amp or receiver, you would hook your XM radio here. The speakers would be wired with a direct line for each back to the power source with speaker cable. Up to 100ft 16 gauge-2 conductor is fine. To drive 2 pairs of these speakers, I would recommend our AMP200. I hope that helps. If you have setup questions or need more info please call 1.888.779.4968 or email me CL
Customer Service - Q&A
on May 10, 2012
Hi Katherine: CL is telling you most XM radios are preamp output. The signal has to go through an amplifier to create Speaker Level Output which is the connection for the RS850 Rocks. The AMP200 would be the ideal choice for powering two pair of these Rock Speakers. TL

Got confused about the spec "Power handling: 300W". Is the power rating: - Continuous (RMS) Power ? - or Program (Music) Power ? - or Peak Power ? I am thinking of getting several of your Rock and Patio speakers and plan power the speakers with QSC amps (GX3, GX5, ..). Understanding the power rating will help in figuring out the combinations.
1 Answer
Hi AR: Power Hadling on these speakers 300 watts RMS. I would suggest 2 pairs powered by a single QSC GX3 wired in Parallel the amplifier would see around a 4 ohm load creating some 425 watts per channel output from this workhorse. Plenty of output for your outside application. TL

Best speakers for the money
I purchased two of the granite colored RS850 speakers and am very satisfied with the sound quality. I had shopped around and was looking at Klipsch and other equivalent outdoor speakers but reading the specs and the reviews I decided to go with the RS850s. I am very happy with my decision on both the appearance and the quality of the sound they produce. So far I am 100% satisfied and would say they are well worth the money!

Great Speakers, but.....
I love my RS850's but one of them has stopped working. In investigating it appears it had about a quart of water inside the housing. The water resistant benchmark was not met in my book. I have tried to call but being in Seattle, it seems every time I call, i can never get an answer. It is two years old. I had hope for a longer service life. In their defense (OSD) Any good product is bound to have a bad part go out the door occasionally, I am hoping this is the case with mine. At any rate, I hope to get a replacement speaker for mine.

I researched quite a few rock speakers and I found these to be the best for the price. I have installed name brand rock speakers and outdoor speakers for many of my clients and these RS850s compete very well with rock speakers in the $400 to $600 range. I highly recommend the RS850s.

Outstanding Speakers
After much research on outdoor speakers I settled on the OSD RS 850s. I was looking for something at ground level to enjoy wherever we are in the back yard - or in the pool and to compliment my wall-mounted Axiom outdoor speakers for a surround sound effect. I've had these speakers for over 5 weeks now. They are in the far corners of my pool patio approximately 30 feet from each other. The sound is clear and crisp and the frequency range allows me to hear instruments and sounds of all varieties. These are powerful speakers being driven by an Onkyo TX-NR5010. I added a speaker volume control to equalize the sound between the Axioms and OSDs - worked out well! We are absolutely delighted with the sound field produced by these puppies - as are our neighbors (well not so much by one of them). I highly recommend these speakers to anybody wanting great sound!
ProsThe frequency range and sound field produced when properly placed.
ConsI would have preferred binder posts rather loose wires requiring wire nuts to connect - just a pet peeve of mine - especially since I ran 12 gauge direct burial cable as the furthest speaker 120 feet from the receiver.

I just connected a pair of the HF15s in my backyard. I'm still landscaping so they're not officially installed, but after a ton of research and reading the reviews here, I just couldn't wait to take em out for a spin. To get a good sense of how they'd sound for different genres, I played some Coltrane, Jill Scott, Pat Metheny, Soundgarden, and Mos Def. Everything sounded AWESOME! I was I used to lug my floor-standing Sony tower speakers outside whenever I was grilling, working or having a cigar. Well these sound even better and of course, the convenience of permanent outdoor speakers is priceless. Though the look wasn't as important to me as the sound, I couldn't be happier with that aspect as well. I am building a koi pond with lots of moss rock, and these babies blend in perfectly! I can't wait to show em off when the outdoor party season starts this spring. I hope my neighbors like my taste in music.

After considerable research, I stumbled on OutdoorSpeaker Depot--I had been considering Rockustics, Niles, and SpeakerCraft rock speakers for my large backyard. The area is filled by a large pool and a large (noisy) rock waterfall. I decided on the HF 15s (1 pair to start). The cost was too cheap, but customer reviews were great! I got the speakers in double boxed shipping boxes (cheap freight), and installed each speaker beside one side of the waterfalls. I used 12 ga. outdoor direct burial low voltage cable, and connected them to an Insignia 5.1 theater reciever (100 watts per channel). The feeling of being way over satisfied immediately came over me when the speakers came alive! No distortion, excellent highs and booming bass, and the louder I played them, the better they sounded! At 1/4 volume-you can hear the high fidelity of these babies 100 yards in front of my house!! I highly recommend the website, xlnt cust service, fast and inexpensive shipping, and amazing s! ound for a VERY inexpensive cost. I will be ordering another pair so that everyone in my area can enjoy these outstanding speakers!--Thanks again for an incredible product.
