Spring is here! Are you ready for BBQ season and outdoor entertaining? Have you been to a friend’s home for a party and they had music playing and you wanted to know what it would take, but have shied away from ugly rock speakers and white surface mounted speakers that clash with your exterior? Read on to learn how to maximize your experience with in obtrusive landscape lighting styled products from Sonance, planter style speakers from Niles Audio, premium rock speakers from Rockustics and wireless products from SoundCast.
Sonance’s Landscape Series of speaker is comprised of 4” and/or 6” landscape lighting style fixtures and a hidden underground subwoofer running of a remotely located 70v amplifier. The benefit of a 70v system for outside is you can easily add additional speaker when and where you want as your needs change versus needing more channels of amplification for each additional speaker which can add significant costs on larger systems. In addition to making a great sounding outdoor solution, Sonance will also work with clients, builders and architects to help design the perfect layout for even output based on landscape plans.
Niles Audio Planter Speakers have been a staple of the custom audio trade for many years. I’ve installed dozens of systems with these unobtrusive speakers as they provide a create 360 degree distribution of sound AND double as planters for flowers, herb gardens or with some creativity even small zen gardens or water features.
Rockustics Premium Outdoor Speakers are some of the best looking and performing rock speakers available and come in a large variety of colors, shapes, sizes and levels of performance to meet any clients needs. Check out www.Rockusticsinc.com to see all they have to offer.
SoundCast Outcast and Outcast Jr. are the best wireless outdoor speaker solutions I’ve come across. I’ve played with and tested them in a variety of environments over the past 12 months and am happy to report they work flawlessly at over 100 feet from their transmitter. The Outcast is a 2 way speaker system with an 8” woofer and 4 3” full range speakers and can easily cover over a 30ft radius…and can run for over 8 hours on a single charge. Pair it with an iCast and streaming your iPod music to it and control it from the SoundCasts top panel buttons.
Thanks for reading and let the fun begin!
