Choosing which speakers you need and what to look for.
Outdoor speakers are built to endure outdoor conditions such as rain, wind, and snow. That implies you should look for weather-resistant, waterproof, or water-resistant speakers. Surface mount and landscape are the two primary types of weather-resistant outdoor speakers.
Surface mount speakers are meant to be mounted against any outside wall, vertically or horizontally, and may be angled toward the chosen listening location. Most surface mount speakers come with mounting gear and accessories for direct wall placement. Surface mount speakers, which come in a variety of sizes and colours, are an excellent way to add sound to an outside porch or patio.
Landscape speakers have the same weather resistance as surface mount speakers, but they may be placed considerably closer to the listening location. Bringing the speakers closer together allows them to be played at lower volumes while also providing a more controlled atmosphere and a better overall soundstage. Landscape speakers are classified as either rock speakers or satellite speakers. Both alternatives may be hidden away in a flower bed, a rock garden, or on the outskirts of a patio, providing outstanding sound while remaining discreet and lovely.
One important choice that you or your clients will have to make is where to position their speakers. For example, would the speakers be installed in a large or small backyard? Are they going to be on a patio, deck, covered or screened-in porch? With these considerations in mind, outdoor speakers must produce rich and clear sound for gatherings, events, or personal usage. Here are a few alternative locations where you may install outside speakers to create a pleasant ambience for your clients.
In-ceiling speakers - These speakers may be tucked into a corner or hung from the ceiling, making them ideal for a covered porch.
Wall-mounted speakers are the most suitable solution for mounting speakers on a wall, floor, or porch. Most wall-mounted speakers are weather-resistant and may be placed outside all year.
Open patio or deck - For open patios or decks, consider putting more than one set of speakers. Because open patios lack barriers to mount on, this ensures that you can cover the whole space. You may also try mounting the speakers beneath the eaves or on the deck's edge.
