These AZEK planter speakers are made of the best, capped polymer and PVC performance materials available and can be fitted with 90° or 180° projection. The Bedford and North Salem AZEK planter speakers are built to last longer with hearty construction techniques and include the company's Smart Pot interior for great drainage. The use of AZEK gives these new planter speakers solid and durable construction with superior stain and scratch resistance.
