When installing these speakers, what type of wiring do you use or is that another piece of equipment that it pick the signal up from?
by Lindsey05 11/22/2010
5 answers
  • A. These speakers are required to be hard wired. The gauge of the wire depends on the length from the speaker to the amplifier, which is specified in the owners manual. Suggest that you use 12 gauge wire to reduce loss and if you are to bury it, use 12 gauge low voltage wire for lighting that you can buy at the big box hardware stores.

  • A. Inside my home, I use Vampire wire for audio and home theatre, but I use a very different approach for outdoor speakers. I have a large lot and speaker placement is in flower beds on opposing sides of the swimming pool. For over 15-years, the following installation has served me well. I use 14-gauge outdoor burial wire sold in bulk at big box stores for low voltage outdoor light installations. Right and left channel wires are run from the amplifier, through walls and attic where they are fed at the eave into a dedicated 1/2" PVC electrical conduit. After the conduit is below ground level, I tee into two separate 1/2"conduit runs to the R&L outdoor speakers. The 1-meter pigtail from the speaker is crimped to the burial wire using a 14-16 gauge (blue) butt splice and wrapped in 3M electrical tape. You can alternatively use a heat shrink waterproof butt splice. I also apply silicone caulk between the conduit and pigtail. The underground conduit keeps the wire dry and prevents damage from an errant shovel strike or tree roots. It also isolates the speaker wire from my other underground circuits (pool lights, pump wiring, etc).

  • A. Buy the Scosche 18-Gauge CCA Speaker Wire (100' spool) that Walmart recommends and sells. It costs $ 10.00 and does the trick!

  • A. You will just use standard speaker wire. Get the thicker wire. Go into the electronics department and pick up a spool of speaker wire. Keep in mind that when you measure the distance to the speakers you will need wire for each speaker. So double the disance to your speaker so you have enough wire for both.

  • A. You need to use speaker wire. These speakers are not wireless. If the speaker wire run is 100 feet or less, 16AWG (gauge) will be fine, 100 feet to 200 feet, use 14AWG and over 200 feet, use 12AWG. Try to use speaker wire that is UV resistant and well insulated since this is, typically, an outdoor application.

I had a pair of more expensive Studio Acoustics 8" OMNI 360 in-ground speakers for about 15-years. Those incredible speakers survived two tropical storms and two Cat-3 hurricanes without any problems. This summer, I started to notice deterioration of sound quality (due to demag & crossover circuit issue) in one speaker. Since the housings still looked good, I investigated dropping in a single replacement raw speaker, but the cost was higher than a new pair of the Outdoor Speaker Depot OS525. Walmart sells these speakers for $10 less than shown on the manufacturer's website, and Walmart's site to store shipping was an additional saving. The speakers were in my hands in only 4-days. You get what you pay for... the downside is that these 5 1/4" 2-way speakers do not have the bass clarity or ability to thump the ground like 8" OMNIs. At best, these smaller speakers are good for background music... if I throttle back my amplifier. We had a heavy Houston rain a couple days ago and ground splash from a flower bed carried water and dirt under the cover protecting one speaker cone. To restore clean sound, I had to dig up the speaker housing and wipe out water and dirt (something I never had to do with the much taller Studio Acoustics over their 15-year life). To prevent this from happening again, the ground around the speakers is now surrounded with a good bark mulch.

The whole process to get these was pretty easy. You just have to find the pickup place in the walmart. There wasn't anyone around when I went to get these. I had to walk around in the delivery area to find someone. The speakers themselvs are great. The sound is good. The design is great. I've got these stuck in the corners of my deck. I like the way they project the sound so that my neighbors won't be botherd. You can't beat the price.

Poorly Designed Enclosure

The mushroom shaped top is supposed to keep weather out, however, under the mushroom top is the area where the sound comes out. There is no screen keeping blowing debris and rain out. In addition, the speaker faces up, so acts like a funnel for anything that gets under the mushroom top. After a few months, dead bugs, grass, mulch accumulate on the speaker cone making it buzz and sound terrible. In addition, any moisture (eg blowing rain, dew) that gets in corrodes the voice coil. While these speakers are warranted for 5 years, there is no way they can last that long in an outdoor environment, so plan on seeking warranty service in the first year if you buy these. They sound great at first, but quickly degrade.

They sound very tiny. My husband & I are very picky on sound quality, so what we feel is inadequit someone else may find to be acceptable. If you are not picky like we are, these might be worth giving a try. We brought ours back to the store. Easily returned, no hassel. You get what you pay for.
