Surface Mounted

The speakers can be mounted on the house, pergola or flanking the basketball court These speakers can also be ground mounted or mounted on posts. They come in black and white. They are paintable. Our favorite speaker in this category is Near. We also like Origin and Revel.

Pictured are the Near LB4, LB5, LB6 and LB8 speakers.

These speakers not only sound great they are extremely well made and carry a 12-year warranty. The LB4 and LB5 can handle 75 watts the LB6 and LB8 can handle 175 watts. These speakers can be paired with a subwoofer.


Planter Speakers

Perfect for when you want the speaker to blend into the environment and have the ability to grow live plants in them. Perfect for decks and patios where you don’t have landscaping to hide your speakers. They come in many models. The leader in this category is Planter Speakers.


Architectural Speakers

Works of art made to be seen. The leader in this field is Architettura Sonora from Italy. The craftsman creates masterpieces in Terracotta, marble and other premium stones, and four colors of concrete. There are two sizes of spheres and cubes and three sizes of cylinders.


Satellites with Subwoofer

The satellites look like outdoor flood lights and are mounted on the ground and are accompanied with an in-ground subwoofer.



One of the earliest form factors available. Placed low on the ground in the planting bed. Typically, gray or sandstone.

Stealth Speakers

Partially buried speaker, super low profile and 360 Degree omni-directional sound coverage make these speakers a great choice when you don’t have a lot of shrubbery to hide speakers. Near In ground speakers come in three sizes.

Ballard Style

Need lighting and great sound then consider a Ballard style speaker with built in light.

Large Venue High Volume

JBL is the leader in this category. There top performing Professional CBT series is magnificent. The technology built in to this speaker is amazing. The CBT 70J and JE system is a wonderfully articulate speaker. At 54”h x 7”w x 9”d you need to consider how to work them into to the landscaping plan. We have use these with tremendous success when we had a large area to cover and need high volume output. The speaker is ideally paired with a Crown amplifier.
