OUTDOOR SPEAKER SYSTEMS AUSTIN TEXAS
Traditional Outdoor Speakers
Traditional Outdoor Speakers otherwise known as surface mount speakers are completely enclosed in a weather proof casing, rust proof grill and bracket as well as corrosion free wire connections. Because they are similar to indoor book shelf speakers you can expect the same great responsive and powerful sound you enjoy indoors. These outdoor speakers usually have a 3” to 8” mid driver and a tweeter. The larger 8” driver produces a wider range of frequencies catering more to the lower bass notes.
Outdoor Landscape Speakers
Satellite Outdoor Landscape Speakers are attached to a pivoting “ground stake” so you can “plant” them in the ground and aim them in the proper direction. Planting these allow them to disappear into your landscape leaving you with nothing but an amazing “uniform sound field”. You will want to think about location and visibility of these type speakers, so your landscapers do not mow them over or continuously hit them with a weed wacker. We also recommend researching the material in which the stake is made because less expensive landscape speakers are known to snap off the stake easily, especially after a few seasons of use. These type systems are usually coupled with an outdoor subwoofer.
Outdoor Rock Speakers
Outdoor Rock Speakers offer a wider range of frequencies because they can hold a larger driver. There is no shortage of rock speaker design or color including, sandstone, slate, granite and many others to fit your landscape aesthetic needs. When selecting the best rock speaker, you want to see how the speaker is positioned in the rock molding. Some are aiming straight out while others are slightly pitched up. If the rock speaker is near the listening area you will want the speaker slightly tilted up in the mold. For larger spaces the speakers aimed straight out will perform better. Rock speakers usually have a 4” to 8” driver and
a tweeter. There are a few that may even have three speakers which does not mean more power but a better performance of individual sound frequencies.
Bose Free Space outdoor speakers
Free Space Outdoor Speakers by Bose offer 360-degree sound field, but the speaker faces down toward a molded sound dispersion base as pictured. These speakers are usually low to the ground, maximizing the overall sound field but still aesthetically pleasing. These are also a great solution for commercial spaces like shopping malls, theme parks, sports venues, hotels, casinos, resorts, restaurants, hospitality facilities, and entrance ways.
Bollard Outdoor Landscape Speakers
Origin Bollard Outdoor Landscape Speakers have a sleek design that can be easily hidden within your Austin home's landscape and also look great when positioned out in the open. Bollard outdoor speakers tend to have the best sound in this category because they sit higher off the ground and can house several larger drivers in optimal directions. These characteristics also make them a more expensive option but the experience is worth it!
The best outdoor Bollard speakers are the Origin Acoustics Bollard speakers that have a 360-degree sound field, excellent sound detail and designed to last for years to come.
Architectural Outdoor Speakers
Architectural outdoor speakers are a newer category especially with the introduction of Architettura Sonora who offers both a visually appealing and amazing sound experience. The bollard can be considered architectural, but we wanted to expand on this collection because of its uniqueness and our belief this designer type outdoor speaker market will rapidly increase. If you are serious about sound and appreciate art, we can honestly say the best architectural outdoor speakers are designed by Architettura Sonora. They have solutions to fill any space with reference quality sound as their name implies, complete “sonorization”
Outdoor Planter Speaker
Bench and planter speakers have always been popular because of their natural look and magnificent sound capabilities. Depending on the size and cost you can have an extremely impressive sound experience using planter speakers. Being able to place them directly in a listening area, while not being a visual eye soar is the major benefit, especially for our flower gardening friends. Both bench and planter speakers can be designed with a subwoofer that is positioned at the bottom facing down for some ground shaking bass.
The best outdoor planter speaker for us is the Ambisonic Systems planter speakers.
Line array outdoor speakers
Line array outdoor speakers are the pinnacle of outdoor (and indoor) concert arena sound. These are usually made with (identical) multiple speakers, mounted in a vertical line on a slight curve. The curve allows the sound to be dispersed immediately in front of the speaker and distances well over 300 feet, all at the same sound level. This gives the listeners directly in front of the speaker and others in the background the same listening experience. JBL line arrays are top of the line especially with their team of engineers to help us design your application .
Outdoor subwoofers add another dimension to your outdoor sound system and necessary for a complete outdoor listening experience. They provide the lower frequencies from the bottom end of the scale that capture and move us. Just like landscape speakers’ outdoor subwoofers come in a plethora of sizes and styles. Some are even buried out of sight with a small mushroom like cover or placed at the bottom of a bollard, bench or planter speaker. Lower frequencies are also non directional so you do not have to aim or strategically place subwoofers for optimal performance. If you appreciate the subwoofer in your surround sound system you will want to plan for an outdoor sub as well.
