How Outdoor Speakers Help Bring Fun and Entertainment to Your Yard
Pump Up the Volume at Your Next Backyard Party with These Outdoor Audio Components for Your Atlanta Home
Summer is here, and that means it’s time for backyard barbecues, family dinner nights under the stars and plenty of time relaxing by the pool. There’s tons of fun to be had already in your home’s outdoor spaces, but you can add new dimensions to your favorite activities with an outdoor audio system.
With outdoor audio, you can enjoy some calming classical music as you zone out by the pool or add some energy to your next party with some upbeat pop favorites. At Sunbelt Technology, we insist on only the best of the best for our Atlanta customers, so today we’re going to highlight four makers of outdoor speakers that can transform your yard.
First up is Sonos, one of the leaders in whole-home audio systems. While Sonos is primarily known for its indoor wireless audio systems, they have high-quality audio products for outdoor use as well.
Sonos’ outdoor architectural speaker pairs deliver the same high-performance sound the company is known, but they’ve also been hardened against humidity, water, salt spray, heat, extreme cold and UV rays. The speakers are powered by the Sonos Amp, which can power up to three pairs of Sonos speakers at once so you can connect your outdoor devices to your whole-home audio system.
The Amp also includes an HDMI Arc connection so you can hook up your speakers to an outdoor TV, as well as an RCA line in to connect another audio source like a turntable. And it all works with Sonos’ easy-to-use app, Apple AirPlay 2, or voice control.
Next up is Origin Acoustics. Origin’s speakers are made to seamlessly blend with your landscape. Their Bollard speaker makes an excellent starting point for outdoor audio.
The speaker includes 180° and 360° dispersion modes, giving you the flexibility to place the speakers in different configurations around your yard for the best possible sound coverage. Origin’s bollard speakers also include a 6-1/2-inch subwoofer in the base, which helps preserve your existing landscape elements.
Origin’s Bollard speakers are available in several different styles and colors, making it easy to find a look that fits your landscape. You can choose a round or a square shell for the enclosure, and you can opt for a bronze, silver or black finish. If you want a more subdued design, their satellite speakers and acoustic landscape speakers deliver quality sound in enclosures only a few inches wide and long, making it easy to place them in out-of-the-way places.
Like Origin, Martin Logan’s outdoor speakers are made to blend in with their surroundings while still delivering high-performance sound. Their speakers are made from sturdy all-weather materials, and the enclosures are completely waterproof.
These enclosures can stand up to the worst of Mother Nature’s fury, and they’ve been put to the test against the elements—submerged underwater and in environments from -20° to 185°F. Also like Origin’s Bollard speakers, Martin Logan offers subterranean subwoofers to give you dynamic bass tones without taking up space in your yard.
One notable element of Martin Logan’s outdoor speaker systems is their scalability. You can start with a single pair of speakers and a subwoofer, then expand as your needs change or your budget allows. Their wall and in-ground speaker mounts all use the same system, making it easy to plant different components wherever you want.
Last but not least, there’s Sonance. Sonance makes several products to suit your outdoor audio needs. To ensure protection from the elements, Sonance outdoor speakers and subwoofers are made with corrosion-proof composite materials and uses a triple-sealed enclosure.
No need to worry about extreme heat or cold affecting performance, either; the baseline SR1 package can handle temperatures from -20 to 109° F. The rest of their outdoor line meets these same rigorous standards.
If you’re looking for a place to start with outdoor audio, it’s hard to go wrong with the SONARRAY SR1 package. The SR1 includes eight satellite speakers and one below-ground subwoofer, giving you high-quality sound over an area up to 2,000 square feet. One Sonance amplifier can power up to 16 speakers and two subwoofers, so it’s easy to add speakers and amplifiers to expand the coverage area later on.
No matter which of these speaker brands you choose, you can expect superior sound and look forward to more fun in your outdoor spaces.
