Durable Materials

The speakers you have in your house wouldn’t work for your outdoor spaces, right? The sleek wooden cabinets that make up the free standing units in your listening room would quickly sustain damage and eventually rot if you put them in your backyards. That’s why you need to invest in speakers specifically designed to handle just about any kind of weather with the most durable materials that still offer great sound.

Outdoor speaker units can be made of any kind of plastic or metals, but often brass is one of the best choices. Not only is brass rust-proof – meaning the unit still remains serviceable for long periods of time – but it usually looks great and blends in with your backyard landscaping perfectly.

There are a lot of brands for outdoor audio, but our go-to choice is Sonance. Their SONARRAY collection of subwoofers and speakers create exceptional sound and have never let us down when it comes to durability in the harsh Texas weather. The satellite speakers blend into the surrounding landscape—place them among bushes, flowerbeds, and paths. 

Figuring Out Your Speaker Layout

Once you have the audio equipment, it’s time to install it. But where should you put speakers? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is entirely dependent on the unique layout of your home. But generally speaking, you want to space the speakers out around the most commonly used areas of your backyard or patio.
