Summer may be fading for most of us who don’t live in year-round warm climates, but it’s never too early to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor space for next year. Outdoor loudspeaker manufacturer Terra wants to give you a head start with its new LS.10 speaker, which adds to its LuminSound lighting and sound system.
Unlike the LuminSound LS.32 model that combines both audio and LED lighting, however, the LS.10 focuses only on your ears as an audio-only speaker solution. That’s not to say the LS.10 completely forgoes attention to your eyes, too—with its compact cylindrical housing and similar aesthetics to the LS.32, the speaker can blend in well with your lush yard, plus you can use it within a mix of LS.10/LS.32 speakers to expand your outdoor coverage.
Inside the LS.10’s 10-inch tall cylinder is a weatherproof 5.25-inch/0.75-inch coaxial driver, which the company mounted at a 35-degree up angle to improve the sonic landscape. Terra says the driver contains the company’s ACAD ceramic/aluminum alloy cone and MFCS fluid cooled spider-free technologies.
The speaker sits at ground level in the yard, with a heavy-duty, 10-inch PVC pipe that attaches and gets buried beneath. You don’t have to worry about moving the speaker in the winter months, as it’s been rated for full outdoor exposure to the temperature extremes, UV rays, salt air and more, according to the company.
You can get the LS.10 in green housing and aluminum grille, as well as black, copper or natural aluminum finish. Terra plans on selling the speakers both individually and as full system packages that include six LS.10 speakers, the AC.SUB subwoofer and dedicated Crown CDi 1000 DSP optimized power amplifier.
Check with Terra on pricing though, as the company does not have list or MSRP prices for its speakers.
