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


Other Product Info

The landscape rock speakers are designed to simulate natural rocks within your landscape. Place the Patio Tune Rock speakers anywhere that a natural rock would be found. Typical locations for the rock speakers are: rock formations for barriers around pools, ponds and spas or bordering a garden and even as an accent in flower gardens.
They have 200 watts per speaker. The specially constructed two-way rock speaker systems utilize weather resistant components for years of trouble free performance. The polypropylene woofer and stamped Aluminum tweeter are acoustically matched to give you clear vibrant sound with good bass characteristics.

from Spring, TX asked:
July 7, 2019

need advice/suggestions.  i'm looking for weatherproof speaker options for my back yard.  I have a pool, outdoor kitchen and covered patio area that I'm looking to add the following:

2 outdoor patio speakers to be hung under the covered patio area.  2 or more speakers to place around the pool (3 or 4 speakers may be necessary to cover the entire area).

Of course, these will need to be water/weather proof. I also want to place a TV for "game night".  This will require a proper home theater receiver that will allow me to attach the TV via HDMI

and a Chromecast (or similar) device via HDMI to the receiver.  The proper receiver will allow me to switch from TV to music streaming.  I will also need the ability to play some speakers

without playing others (and play all speakers when desired).  Definitely want good sound and enough power to increase volume to a nice level should we have a pool party. 

thank you for your advice.

Hi Brian:

You should check out our Upload Your Plans Option. It is a free service where you have already supplied some useful information. We typically ask for you to submit either a line drawing or Blueprint of your outdoor layout. Additional images of the pool, Kitchen Area, and covered structure is helpful as well. Are you planning a 5.1 or 7.2 Home Theater speaker system as well (thus the Audio Video Receiver)? I have been designing outdoor systems for more than eight years now at OSD Audio, and I am excited with all the new products featuring the latest technology. But I need more information. You can also contact me directly at Please include a phone number; it is also helpful to discuss one on one. I am in the Northwest, West Coast time.

if I wanted to use them separately, not as a pair, could I simply wire both left and right channels to each and position them in separate areas of my yard? Would that work and sound decent? They would be wired to a Denon AVRX3400H receiver. Thanks.
1 Answer
Hi Dan: I had to confirm that you could set the output on your DENON ZONE 2 output to Monoaural playback. I am assuming that you want to connect channels 6 and 7 Rear Surround Left and Rear Surround Right (Page 50 in the Manual). You want to run the left channel to the first speaker and right channel output to the other. That way it stays at 8-ohms (which your Receiver will like). Then you can assign that both channels can send out a full range monaural signal for ZONE 2 (page 206). That should work. TL/5103

Do the speakers have a 2-wire or 4-wire connection? I have 4-wire cables. Do the sub-woofers have a separate connection?
1 Answer
Hi William: This come as a stereo pair with each speaker having a 2 conductor wire connection (red/positive and black/negative). If you have four wires it should be right and left (+/-). The sub woofer connection depends on your Receiver/Amplifier and the sub woofer you pick out. It would help to know what all the components you have or are looking at for your system. maybe you can give me an idea (brand and model number helps) including a rough drawing and any images you can supply. my contact TL/4820

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 Answer
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

I want to use Sonos Connect with 2 pair of the RS805 & AMP200. Is this correct? Do I need anything else?
1 Answer
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

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 Answer
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 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 Answer
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 Answer
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
