Customers often ask us if our outdoor rock speakers can handle the elements. OSD Audio rock speakers are engineered specifically for even harsh weather with durable aerospace-grade, multi-layer composite cabinetry that can take heat, cold, wind and rain.
Rock Speaker Installation Tips
Installing rock speakers is easy and can be a lot of fun. First, decide where you want your new rock speakers to go. Most of our customers like to hide them in landscape border areas or garden beds. You'll need to run outdoor speaker wire from the speakers (all our rocks include a 3-foot speaker lead) to a sound source. Most outdoor speakers are passive devices, which means they do not have built-in amplification and will need a source of power. You can connect your outdoor speakers directly to household amplification like a home receiver or outboard amp/receiver stored safely in a tool shed or other covered space where it is protected from the elements. The OSD team recommends you bury wire 4-6” underground so that it's not visible nor pose a danger of somebody tripping over it.
What kind of cable do I need?
Direct-burial cable is strongly recommended. We offer CL-rated cable that can withstand extreme weather conditions and uses twice the insulation of regular cables.
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
