Product code: RX805
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
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a phone number; it is also helpful to discuss one on one. I am in the Northwest, West Coast time.
