Features & Specifications

OSD Audio Customers are always happy to discover that experiencing great outdoor sound is a lot easier and less expensive than they think and love plugging in their iPods and listening to music while gardening or relaxing outside. The RS680 is great for medium size spaces and shares many of the same features as the RS690 but has a different style and shape enclosure. Behind the aerospace-grade, all-weather enclosure is a 6.5" polypropylene woofer with sealed voice coil and silicone encased leads as well as a 1" polyamide dome tweeter. If you're worried about weather, rest assured that these all-weather rock speakers are safe in the rain, snow, wind and will even withstand the occasional "visit" from Fido! The speaker remains completely hidden behind a fully painted aluminum grille that matches the rock speaker surface and texture. The speaker is nearly impossible to see and will not rust or oxidize over time.

Key Features
· All-weather components withstand rain, temperatures and other harsh weather conditions
· Acoustically inert enclosure made from Aerospace grade multi-layer composite cabinetry
· Designed specifically for outdoor environments with excellent sound quality
· Available Canyon Brown or Granite Grey finishes

Do You Have Everything You Need for Outdoor Sound?
You've chosen your rock speakers and can’t wait to get them outside but do you have everything to get started? Remember, you'll need power to drive these rocks from either an amplifier or receiver. You'll also need speaker wire to connect everything, particularly CL3 Rated, Direct Burial cable (see our Audio/Video Cable section).

Choosing the Right Location
You have your rock speakers, power to drive them and CL3 rated cable. Now it's time to choose a great spot. A good rule of thumb is that the rock speakers should face the general listening area, about 12 feet from the center and 10 to 12 feet apart. This set up will give you the best stereo imaging. Also, avoid placing the speakers in low spots that would make these speakers vulnerable to water accumulation.

Can I Play Music from My iPod or Laptop?
OSD Rock speaker function just like regular speakers and once they're hooked up to your source (amplifier/receiver) you can connect your portable player with a simple cable like our Mini Stereo 3.5mm to 2 RCA Adapter (see the Audio/Video Cable section).


To improve longevity of the surface quality on our outdoor speakers, place the rocks in a shaded area to prevent color fade from too much direct sunlight. It is recommended to keep our outdoor speakers out of contact with any chemicals that may be present in your yard. We encourage you to bring the speakers indoors or cover them up during the off seasons to ensure a longer life for the speaker

Couldn't be happier
We eat outdoors as much as possible. I bought a pair of these June 2013 to put in the backyard for cookouts and pool parties. I placed them about 40 feet apart on the other side of the pool from the house. They were a big hit and we love the depth of bass and crisp, clear tone. I paid $149 for them in June and was delighted with the value received. When I saw this current deal I did not hesitate to order another pair. The two that we already had are totally sufficient but now I can surround the entire pool/patio area with great sound at an unbeatable value. You simply can't go wrong with the RS680. Both my business partner and our receptionist have ordered these this week.
ProsTerrific sound clarity and quality even at low volume. Lots of power if needed with no distortion.
ConsThere just aren't any.

Amazing sound (I am fussy) and lasted 10 years.
I have used these speakers for 10 yrs. I bring them inside once the snow flies and back outside in April. My last identical pair lasted for 10 years before water entered the exterior shell. The sound is clearly heard on my entire patio which is large. I think for the money, the volume and overall sound quality is crisp. Jazz, blues, rock and roll all sound superb coming from these rock speakers. My patio is surrounded by pine trees, a lake and the sky and yet the sound is still wonderful and full. People who appreciate music are usually impressed when they hear them. Not to mention, they do blend in fairly well with the environment.
ProsReasonably priced, sound great. My last pair lasted 10 years before water entered the exterior shell.

Great Sound
I installed these speakers in the flowerbed that surrounds our patio. We use them only at low volume and they provide a very full and rich sound. I'm driving them with my 35 yr. old Kenwood 60 watt receiver and I couldn't be more pleased. My only problem now is that I never want to go in at night and find myself sitting on the patio till all hours of the night. The speakers look good amongst the flowers and bushes as well.

AWESOME SOUND!!
Love the speakers! I have Close to 2400sq. Ft. Of pool deck and these speakers fill the area with great sound and impressive base at all volume ranges! This is my second set of these speakers. The last set lasted close to four years. I allways take them indoors during the winter months, but somehow water got into the enclosures.. only paid $149.00 for great sound so I don't mind as long as they last at least that long.

I purchased a set of these speakers last year and had two full seasons to rate them. First I had a 100w per channel receiver pushing them and they sound very good. I upgraded to a 150w per channel receiver and they sound even better! Don't skip on the power I hooked up a 100w sub and it knocked my socks off. What a great sound I have on my patio and backyard. When we have parties on the patio my guests are impressed with the sound quality. Believe the reviews, these speakers are impressive. We had a very cold and snowy winter last year and there were no problems once spring came. The speakers "Rocked"!

I've had these speakers about a month and I am very pleased with them. They sound great. I really didn't expect sound this good. Connected with 100 feet of 14 gauge 4 conductor direct burial cable and the AquaBlue wire nuts. They were extremely easy to set up.(except for digging the trench) I had my annual Tiki party and these speakers blew everyone away. They do not disappoint. The 5 year warranty is a big plus.

I had my electrician install four of these speakers (in grey) yesterday. They were installed around a 20 by 44 foot rectangular pool in a rather large backyard. We hooked them up to a Pioneer 818 receiver. I'm no audiophile, but the system sounds great! For the price, these are great - no need to spend more money!

Who would have thought that after two years and a blown woofer, I would have received the response and customer support from OSD? Well, thanks to Dave and Linda, they not only addressed my needs but repaired my speaker by installing a new woofer, thanks. The speakers sound great, produce clear sound and can handle 100+ watts without distorting. Thank you!
