SpeakerCraft-OG-6.jpgSpeakerCraft has introduced its new Landscape Audio Series of outdoor speakers, subwoofers, and accessories. The line includes two satellite speakers: the SC-OG-6 (six-inch, shown here) and SC-OG-4 (four-inch) two-way weatherproof models with nickel-plated brass fittings. These speakers can be run in traditional eight-ohm mode but also have adjustable 70V/100V tap switch settings. Two in-ground subwoofers are also available: the SC-BT-12 (12-inch) and SC-BT-10 (10-inch) models with waterproof HDPE enclosures. Check out the press release below for more product information.

From SpeakerCraft
Furthering its commitment to provide installers with exceptional audio experiences in every listening space, SpeakerCraft--from Nortek Security & Control (NSC)--announced the launch of its new Landscape Audio Series. The new outdoor line includes satellite speakers, in-ground subwoofers, and accessories that seamlessly bring the SpeakerCraft signature sound and indoor quality to outdoor living spaces. The debut was made at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam.

"The new durable and weatherproof SpeakerCraft outdoor series delivers a brilliant sound performance, with an emphasis on powerful bass for any outdoor area," said Director of Audio Alex Zaliauskas. "We are excited to give dealers the 70 Volt and 100 Volt installation options they've asked for, without sacrificing the SpeakerCraft sound profile their customers depend on. The new weatherproof satellite speakers blend into any outdoor environment, and our all-new burial-rated subs deliver massive bass even in the largest outdoor spaces."

The SC-OG-6 6" (152mm) and the SC-OG-4 4" (100mm) 2-way All-Weather Outdoor Satellite Speakers both feature a durable weatherproof design that ensures years of reliable performance. The new speakers incorporate nickel-plated brass fittings that address a common failure point among other landscape speakers that use plastic-plated fittings. The Satellites can operate in traditional eight-ohm mode, but also have adjustable 70V/100V tap switch settings. This enables installation and amplification modes favored by many installers, and allows users to set the volume of each speaker individually. The 110-degree wide dispersion ensures wide audio coverage in all outdoor spaces.

SpeakerCraft-In-Ground-Sub.jpgThe new SpeakerCraft SC-BT-12 12" (300mm) and SC-BT-10 10" (250mm) Boom Tomb In-Ground Subwoofers feature waterproof HDPE enclosures, made from the same material used in municipal water supply lines. They are dunk tested at the manufacturing facility before shipping to ensure that leaks won't happen. Both subwoofers feature a high-flow port design in which the port and canopy assembly spreads the moving air evenly in a 360-degree pattern, thereby reducing air turbulence and eliminating annoying port noise. The woofer magnet is located on the vented side of the enclosure, which allows it to be cooled by airflow in and out the enclosure, adding longevity to the motor structure. And the port assembly is covered by an aluminum mesh grille that allows unrestricted airflow yet prevents intrusion of bugs, animals and debris.

Making installation easier than ever for the installer, SpeakerCraft is also introducing new 'quick connect' accessories, including the AW-LS-STAKE Landscape Speaker Stake Mount, the AW-LS-CONDUIT Landscape Speaker Conduit Box Mount, and the AW-LS-MOUNT Landscape Speaker Surface Mount. "The single largest failure point for installers integrating outdoor satellites is when they lean their weight on it to push it into the ground, often breaking the entire assembly," Zaliauskas said. "Our new accessories eliminate this issue. They employ a 'quick connect' method that allows the speaker to be installed after the accessory is mounted, making the installation far more reliable."
