Features & Specifications

If you need clear, powerful sound in your outdoor space, the OS525 High-Definition Omni Speakers Pair might be perfect for you. Ideal for lawns and gardens, these speakers blend right into your landscape. Like all OSD speakers, the OS525 Omni can withstand all weather conditions; they're even immune to pool chemicals. With 100 watts of power, these speakers are just right for areas between 300 and 500 square feet.

What Is an Omni Speaker?
Popular with landscape professionals and audio contractors, Omni speakers provide true omni-directional 360° surround sound with no obstructions. If there are multiple people scattered in different areas, the sound is consistent, not mixed. This feature plus the durable nature of Omnis make it a popular speaker for theme parks, hotels, and resorts; however, Omnis are also quite common for residential use.

Should I bury my omni speakers to get better sound?
You don't have to bury your Omni speakers but it will enhance sound quality and here's why. The sound comes out of the "mushroom cap" on top of the speaker. When you bury the omni (a few inches above the grille), the sound has a surface to bounce off of--the ground acts like a tuned baffle!

John O
from Pennsylvania asked:
August 14, 2016
can I use these speakers for outdoor movies (os525)
1 Answers
Hi John O: Are you looking to use these for 2 channel playback or a more elaborate 5.1 or 7.1 system? I would not recommend using them for your Front Stage LCR (left, center & right). I think you would want something where you can aim the tweeter for optimum listening. Either our rock or patio speaker would be better for that application. The OS 525 would work for surround speakers in the more elaborate system. Also you will need an amplifier for two channel or a Audio Video Receiver for the surround channels. TL/4025

I have a pair of Paramount Omni GS3 speakers. They've been wonderful for 15+ years. They finally died. What would be an equivilant replacement?
1 Answers
Hi Ellen, I can't seem to find any info on the G3 speakers you are referencing. The OS525 are a pair of 5.25" speakers; these are good for background music or easy listening. I would say that if you're wanting to have music for parties or you want to listen to rock or hip hop, you would probably want to go with our OS790 or OS850.

I bought a pair of Omni speakers and installed them (in-ground) myself about 8 years ago. They are very good speakers and have provided great sound, however recently one of the speakers is apparently blown. I intend to buy another pair, but I want to know if your company can also install them. I live in San Dimas about 15 miles away form your location.

August 19, 2013
I bought a pair of these last year. After hooking them up, they sounded terrible. Muffled and tinny, like the speakers were blown. Decided to rewire thinking that was the cause. Projects got in the way and just rewired this weekend. (Note, I also have a pair of the "rock" speakers that sound amazing!). Still the same sound out of these omni speakers. Sounds so bad, I cannot even have them on except with the volume turned WAY DOWN. The speakers are buried to the depth per instructions. Reading reviews on these speakers, everyone seems to be very happy with them. So is there something I did not do correct? Any advice to get it sounding decent?

Scott
from Houston asked:
June 3, 2013
Hello, I have a pair of these speakers hooked up to a traditional stereo receiver. However, i am looking to add a second pair and am looking to convert to the 70V system. Would this be suitable and what transformers would you suggest for using 2 pairs and adding possibly a 3rd pair in the future?
1 Answers
Hi Scott, If you have a 70 V amp, you can use our OSD-EW70V transformers for each 8-ohm speaker. If you plan on purchasing other speakers, take a look at our outdoor 70V speaker section. With these speakers, you won't need a transformer. CL/MA 1943

Mitch
from Georgia asked:
May 21, 2013
If I were to run these 2 speakers with the omni sub 200, what amp would you recommend? I saw that for the larger version of these, the 8", you recommend the amp200 but since these are smaller, would a smaller amp work?
1 Answers
Hi Mitch, The AMP120 would sufficiently power the OS525 pair and the OMSUB200 subwoofer. If you ever wanted to expand your outdoor audio, our AMP200 would be an even better choice. It will allow you to add 4 pairs optionally with a speaker selector like the ISS4. Although it has connections for two pairs as is, this amp would also be a good choice for the larger omni like our OS850, which is on special right now! CL/MA 1920

The image above shows a formation with one sub woofer with two of these OS525 as satellites. Can 4 of these run off one subwoofer?
1 Answers
HI Paul, The OS525 omni speaker wasn't designed for that; however, as a solution you could use a speaker selector with impedance protection (i.e., take the output speaker lines of the sub200 to the inputs of the speaker selector. MB/MA 1649

I would like to add a subwoofer to my pair of OS525. Which subwoofer would you recommend?
1 Answers
Hi Wayne, Our OMSUB200 would be perfect for your applications. A great feature of this sub is that it includes a built-in crossover that allows you to run it off your current amp or receiver (unlike other passive subs that require a sub amp). Take a look at the diagram for wiring the OM525 pair with the OMSUB200 on the product page. https://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/outdoor-omni-subwoofer-omsub200.html CL/MA 1335

Kitty
from Oxford, MI asked:
July 14, 2012
We live in Michigan and bought those speakers couple of years ago.After the first winter one speaker died. Had it exchange and next winter the same. Are they really weather proof? We are looking for new ones. What can you recommend to survive the winters. I'm tired of replacing them every year.
1 Answers
Hi Kitty, I am sorry you are having issues with the OS525. These speakers are weather resistant; however, we recommend customers store them during the cold winter months, especially if they’re is a chance they will be submersed in snow. A better choice would be either a pair of OS-790 or the RS660OM which are more weather resistant than the OS525. Your OS525 should still be under warranty. Please contact brennan@osdaudio.com to discuss your options. We can offer you a deal on possible replacements. TL/MA

Nice but small sound
These type of omni directional speakers are better than any rock speaker as far as durability goes. These are a little small in sound and the quality of sound is a little muffled.

Pool Speakers
I was looking for some nice background music for my small 12k gallon pool and these speakers fit the bill. Originally I had these speakers on a 90 watt automobile amplifier and they sounded great. I added the SUB200 which slighlty enhanced the bass when I crank it up which is seldom.

Great Speaker for the price
I purchased these along with a OM-SUB200. They have good high and mid range but light on Base. The addition of the SUB20I purchased these along with a OM-SUB200. They have good high and mid range but light on Base. The addition of the SUB200 resolved this. I have the speakers buried about 8 inches from my deck. The sound is a little blocked and would recommend placing them about 12" from objects that might block the sound if possible. My amp is 100 watts per channel, would recommend more power. The speakers can take all the amp has and looks for more. With my amp they are not quite loud enough for movies but as I said, the addition of more power would probably resolve that.

Excellent!!
We received our speakers sooner than expected, which was a treat! They were installed quickly and easily, and they sound way better than expected. Our previous speakers were *rock* speakers that surrounded our pool area, and had a very nice sound, but these speakers blow them out of the water! They're phenominal for out door use and the sound is crystal clear. I highly recommend them.

Quality Speakers for the $$$
Easy to put into the ground after wiring to my stereo in the basement...some killer Christmas music coming out of them to go along with my outdoor lighting. The neighbor came next door the other night and thanked me for having everything together...he said his family really enjoyed hearing the music. Would definitely use them again for a larger backyard project or around a pool area. Quick delivery, good packaging. Box was in good shape when it arrived on my doorstep.

We have had 2 of these (probably a slightly older model) in our back yard around our pool since the summer of 1994. They are the BEST!!! I can't give these speakers a high enough star rating. They have lived through 3 deck overhauls and 14 lake-effect winters (we live near Syracuse NY) with absolutely no problems. We have only ever had to clean them out once or twice and replace the foam rings on each once. The sound quality is amazing even after all these years. The college students who live around us are impressed with the volume as well!
