Barbecues, campfires, pool parties, and wine on the porch—it’s all better with an outdoor sound system. Most folks use a Bluetooth portable speaker or an old boom box when they enjoy tunes outside. But there are many drawbacks to that approach. For one, a single speaker can’t spread sound to every end of your backyard. If you’re hosting friends and family, they might not be able to hear music in some areas, while in others, the audio is overpowering.
Another disadvantage is that portable speakers are unreliable and not weatherproof. You need to make sure the speaker is charged or plugged into an external outlet to use it. And if it starts to rain, it’s a mad dash to bring your speakers inside.
That’s not the case with an outdoor speaker system by brands like Paradigm and Rockustics. If you’re new to outdoor audio, there are many options and approaches to weatherproof sound. Explore your choices below to find the best fit for your home in Davenport, IA.
If you’re concentrating on a porch, patio, or pool house area, consider wall-mounted outdoor speakers. Paradigm’s Stylus series can be installed on the exterior walls and eaves of your home and are completely weather and water-resistant so that you can leave them outside all year long.
Paradigm’s Stylus outdoor speakers not only look great, but they deliver powerful sound with two drivers and two-way acoustic suspension to reduce bass distortion. With a professional installation, we can wire your outdoor speakers to your indoor sound system so they all connect to the same media sources.
Want to spread your audio across the entire lawn? Discreet and stylish landscape speakers can poke out from your grass, plants, and bushes while delivering clear, robust sound.
Paradigm’s Garden Oasis series offers eight speakers and one subwoofer that resemble small spotlights or sprinklers trenched into the ground. The burial subwoofer brings low frequencies for all your favorite bass lines, so you don’t have to sacrifice sound quality outside.
Some homeowners prefer to enjoy their favorite tunes without distracting from the natural beauty on their property. Rockustics, another outdoor audio brand, builds high-fidelity speakers in the shape of realistic rocks, flowerpots, and even coconuts!
Rockustic’s SquareRoot 6.5 SweetSpot is a fully functional flower pot with drainage holes for watering, all the while emitting gorgeous sound over a 6.5-inch coax woofer with a .75-inch dome tweeter. To create a tropical oasis, the Coconutz speakers resemble a real-life coconut with a two-way, 75-watt speaker inside. Hang them from a (real or fake) tree and bring ambience to your patio all summer long.
By partnering with an audio-video expert, we’ll sync all your outdoor speakers to one intuitive sound system. You’ll select the music you want right from your phone or tablet, raising and lowering the volume for the entire property.
