Features & Specifications

The RX805 Outdoor Rock Speaker is a team favorite at OSD for its natural look and excellent sound. This speaker has an 8-inch polypropylene woofer and 1-inch dome tweeter that provide excellent high and low notes. The RX805 will have no problem filling large backyards, pools or patios and is very natural looking. Place these speakers anywhere a natural rock would be found and you'll hardly notice them (until you turn these speakers on). Typical locations for the rock speakers are rock formations for barriers around pools, ponds and spas, bordering a garden and even as an accent in flower gardens.

Installation Difficulty: Novice
Like all our rock speakers, being handy is helpful but not required. Installing these speakers can be very simple; just decide where you want them to go and run the speaker wire from the desired sound source. Most outdoor speakers are passive devices, meaning they do not have built-in amplification and will need a source of power. Most customers connect their outdoor speakers directly to household amplification, that is directly to a home receiver or outboard receiver stored safely in a tool shed or other covered space where it is protected from the elements.

How durable are these rock 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. 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. These rock speakers utilize weather-resistant components for years of trouble free performance.

Do I need special cable to run outdoor speakers?
Direct burial, waterproof cable and wire connectors designed for the outdoors are recommended. These speaker cables 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 in the ground, we recommend using direct burial cable.

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

Neil
from Palm Springs, California asked:
November 8, 2016
I want to use an Airport Express base station to connect my speakers with Airplay. What cables will I need in order to the 3.6mm audio jack on the base?
1 Answers
Hi Neil: You would use a cable that is terminated with a male 3.5mm strereo connector on one end then splits to two male RCA to plug into an external amp (like our AMP200 or AMP120 if powering a pair of speakers) that would then be connected to the speakers with CL3/FT4 rated direct burial speaker wire. WE have the audio cables in 1, 3, 6, and 12 ft (OSD-MS-6ft-6 foot cable). TL/4119

March 19, 2016
I want to use Sonos Connect with 2 pair of the RS805 & AMP200. Is this correct? Do I need anything else?
1 Answers
Hi Brad: This is a combination we recommend all the time. You can connect a pair of the RS-805 to Speaker A and the second pair to Speaker B. You can also expand your system by adding a SSVC4 speaker selector featuring four zones with internal impedance matching volume controls per each zone. Plus dual source. Another note, it is recommended you connect the SONOS Connect to Input #2. You will have the option of adding a Powered Sub-woofer to output #2 as well. You will also have an option of adding an additional source to the SONOS Connect, accessible through the SONOS App.. Great choice TL/3764

from Michigan asked:
March 9, 2016
Has anyone used these speakers for PA applications. I want to use them on my golf course for the first tee and making announcements around the clubhouse as well as playing music.
1 Answers
HI John: These should work just fine if your are connecting to a standard receiver that has an 8 ohm output. You would want to place them 8 to 12 feet apart for proper stereo separation and probably be on the other side of the TEE box facing back towards the Pro Shop or maybe facing the Putting green. You could add a second pair of RX-805 for better coverage and add individual Outdoor Volume control for each pair. I should ask you what is you receiver you are using, Brand and Model number so I can better answer your question? Are you running a 70 Volt system, not a big deal we would add an in line transformers to convert the speakers to 70V and you would be able to daisy chain multiple speakers (they would be full range mono for each speaker and you can add a number of speakers. The speaker in either case would work fine for PA as well as playing music. Please contact me at tim@osdaudio.com if you have additional questions. I would be more than happy to help you integrate the speakers with your current system. Good Luck TL/3745

Can I use a pair of these if my receiver is 90 watts per channel / 125 watts peak per channel
1 Answers
Hi Joe, These outdoor rock speakers handle more power than your receiver is rated for; therefore, it will drive them just fine. The RX805s, however, are out of stock. An alternative is the RS680. These include 6.5" wooers but deliver superior sound quality. CL/MA 2026

What is the main differencee between the RX805 and RS790 8" speaker. I see there is a substantial price difference. I plan to power the Speakers with a pioneer home receiver rated at 100watt x 2 Thank you, Rob
1 Answers
Rob, To start, looking at the Frequency Response for each speaker, the Rs790 is gonna give you more bass. The magnet on the Rs790 is bigger as well as the speaker being made up of higher quality materials- giving it better sound quality. The last thing I notice is different is the Rs790 have a two year warranty and the Rx805 has a one year warranty. CL

Perfect for the yard!
I've been building up my rock speaker collection in the backyard over the past few years and just added these as speakers number 5 & 6. They blend into the landscape perfectly and provide nice sound whether I'm just hanging out for morning coffee or grilling out with friends. You can crank these up enough to hear them from anywhere in the yard, and annoy the neighbors, but they're best used at a lower volume to provide some music in the background...some ambiance. That's why I keep adding speakers and placing throughout the yard...it allows me to keep the music at a lower volume and still hear it where ever I'm at in the yard. I definitely recommend these speakers to anyone and everyone who asks!
ProsSound great and blend into the landscape.
ConsThey'll fade in the sun and weather after a couple of years, but they'll keep rockin' (pun intended)! Just buy a can of the stone texture spray paint from Lowes/Home Depot and they're like new again!
Best UsesUse in multiples if you can and spread them throughout the yard to create more of an ambiance effect.

Fantastic Speakers!
These speakers are fantastic. They sound great out of the box. The low end is very good for their size. I am recommending them to all my friends looking for outdoor speakers.
ProsGreat sound. Very good low end for their size.
ConsThe only con is the the wire coming out of the speaker is a small gauge. If you are hooking these up to the end of a long run, chances are you are changing gauges once you get to these leads.

Great speakers. Have lasted me 10 years.
I ordered these speakers from OSD 10 years ago for my house in Florida. They lasted the whole time. I recently relocated those same speakers to my other house in North Carolina and ordered new wire. Speakers still sound great! The only thing I need to do is paint over the teeth marks on the speakers left by the squirrels.

Don't judge a book by its cover
i use these rock speaker to balance out the sound on my 800 square foot patio. i have a Harmon Kardon 125 watt per channel 2 channel receiver with a pair of b&w outdoor speakers mounted on exterior wall. i run all 4 speakers thru a volume control mounted outside and the sound coming out of the rock speakers really impressed me for the price. They don;t look extremely realistic but sitting at the corners of my patio in the flowers they look fine. I would recommend these speakers for the money . Shipping was fast, over all great experience.

ConsNot realistic looking

Great speakers
speakers sound great and are plenty powerful for around my 20x40 foot pool. I have these speakers on the far side of the pool facing the house, 2, 6 inch patio speakers under the deck facing out and 2, 4 inch patio speakers mounted to the house. All are routed to a speaker selector and hooked to my sonos. I have the rock speakes set at 2x the volume of the other speakers. The result is that the entire pool area is filled with sound without needing to crank the volume.

Great speakers, good bass
I bought these for my outdoor patio. I did have wall mounted speakers on each side of the patio but one blew and it was time to research new outdoor speakers. I wanted more bass but didn't have a huge budget. I also wanted ground mounted because I dont want anymore wires hanging down the side of the house. These go well with my landscaping, they actually serve the purpose of decorating as well as functional speakers. It's in the middle of winter so I have not used them heavily, but I did test them out for a while one day. Very nice sound...highs, mids, lows. The only thing is that you have to aim them where you'll usually be listening. I have them pointed out to by backyard because thats where we play outdoor games. But when you come up to the house to go inside, it sounds kind of muffled or 'bassy' without the clear highs. It's mostly just due to the fact that I have a grill between me and 1 speaker and a patio table between me and the other speaker, so it blocks the highs/mids and echos the bass. I will have to aim them differently when summer comes around to see what sounds best. Other than that (which has nothing to do with the speaker itself), I dont think these could get much better! GREAT PRICE!!

Great Speaker
I replaced my old rock speakers, the efficiency is at least the stated 91dB, which is plenty to have the show going on with an amp only 2x20W. The bass is full and the sound altogether would let me even use it in a listening room setup if did like rocks inside. I definitely get another pair .

Purchaed four of these for the backyard around the pool. We are very impressed with the sound quality and bass output. I was not expecting this good of a product. Only downside, one of the speakers may be developing a hair line crack in the silicone seal about the front of the speaker.
