Do You Have Everything You Need for Outdoor Sound?
You've picked your rock speakers and can’t wait to get them outside but do you have everything to get started? You'll need power to drive these awesome 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 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 or 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).

Wind, Sleet, Snow…How Durable are these Speakers?
OSD outdoor speakers are developed with harsh conditions of the outdoors in mind. Our rock speakers use only non-water-absorbing materials and won't absorb any water. This is critical in winter so it won't freeze and crack. The shape is designed to withstand large amounts of pressure, extreme temperatures and moisture. Keep in mind, however, 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. These rock speakers utilize weather-resistant components for years of trouble free performance.

Is there a way that I can connect these to my outdoor TV?
1 Answer
Hi Angelica: There are two ways to connect to your television. Either way you will need an external power amplifier like our XMP100 to connect to either the TV itself which typically have a right and left RCA output or to connect to you Satellite or Cable TV set top box. Both will need a stereo RCA patch cord. You would then connect the RS 690 to the Amplifier using speaker wire. What source are you using for your TV, that will help determine what and where is your best connection? tim@osdaudio.com TL/4534

I just bought direct burial speaker wire, but the majority of my run is inside. I have a lot of extra CL2 indoor rated speaker wire already. Would it affect sound quality to splice the ends and run direct burial only for the outdoor area and indoor for the indoor area?
1 Answer
HI Kevin: You will have no problem splicing the wires together as long as you have the same gauge. If your CL2 is either 16/2 or 16/4 you can splice them to our 16 gauge. The CL rating pertains to the fire Resistance of the outer jacket. CL2 is for residential only and the CL3 is residential and most commercial applications (also a little more expensive than CL2). It has nothing to do with the internal conductors just makes it safe to run in the walls. But you just need to match the gauges for your application. If you have 16 and 14 gauge to connect the 16 gauge will your rating. 14 is a larger gauge that would be a waste of money. What makes it direct burial is we add something to protect it from UV rays. So no reason to change out your CL2. TL/4347

Are these type of rock speakers can bear the sea environment?
1 Answer
Great question. Our rock speakers are designed for all-weather purposes, but like with any outdoor component, it is always best to add as much protection as possible. Keeping the rocks in a primarily shaded area will help prevent fading of the paint over the years caused by direct sun contact. Bringing the rocks in during the harsh weather seasons or simply covering them up with tarp will also improve their longevity. -CS 2406

Hi what is the difference (besides driver size) between this speaker and the RX800. Which is better sounding?
1 Answer
Hi Mike Great question! Honestly these are my two favorite speakers. I would say the RS690 is the BEST speaker in our 6.5" size. The RS800 comes in 3rd in the 8" category but personally as far which sounds better - its hard to say- very similar sound quality (great!) The RS800 is larger like you noticed so you will get more low end (Bass) and please note the RS800 is sold singly while the price you see for the RS690 is for a pair. I hope that helps! CL 2031

Bruce
from Pottstown, Pennsylvania asked:
March 30, 2012
If I place 2 pair of these speakers around my fenced in pool area which is approximately 60' by 40', would I have good sound without the use of a subwoofer?
1 Answer
Hi Bruce, The RS690 Rock Speakers are an excellent choice for your application. I would start with that to see if you're totally satisfied. Adding a subwoofer to this system would entail adding a dedicated subwoofer amplifier (SMP250) along with our RSUB300 (HF26). That would be your best match if you choose to add an outdoor sub. TL
