Episode Terrain Outdoor Speakers: A Speedy Install
The Terrain landscape audio system bundles four 4-inch satellite loudspeakers along with an 8-inch in-ground, buried subwoofer, which works with any multichannel or stereo amplifier.
The system includes a wire-management system; after hammering the stakes into the ground, you can hide the cabling run within the stake.
Once the wiring runs are finished, complete the installation by using the system’s quick-connect feature to attach the cable runs to the speakers. According to SnapAV, the quick-connect feature eliminates the twisting of cables, and it provides easy access to the speaker in the event the speaker needs service.
The speakers utilize a high-strength ABS and glass enclosure, and its drivers employ a polypropylene-cone woofer and aluminum-dome tweeter. SnapAV specifies the all-weather system of being capable of withstanding temperatures from negative 20 degrees to 185-degrees Fahrenheit.
