When it comes adding an outdoor audio system to the backyard, the goal of most homeowners has been to hide or disguise the loudspeakers. Speakers masquerading as light fixtures, rocks, and planters are effective solutions, but why not show off your outdoor speakers? Why not let them look like a loudspeaker?
Triad Speakers thinks that the speakers that you listen to outside should be just as colorful as the umbrella over your patio table, and has infused a rainbow of colors into its first line of outdoor loudspeaker line. Two 2-way designs are available: the 6.5-inch driver model OD26 ($600 MSRP pair) and the 5.25-inch OD25 ($400 MSRP pair). Each incorporates carbon fiber drivers and titanium tweeters. While standard in black or white, Triad will paint the speakers any color desired, including custom-matching (slight upcharge).
Aptly capable of handling from 25-150 watts, the OD26 and OD25 are well-suited to serve residential and light commercial settings. The speaker enclosures are weather-resistant and durable, yet lightweight. Installation is further made easy by way of a provided adjustable bracket which neatly attaches to all surfaces (under eaves, to posts, etc.). Constructed of anti-corroding aluminum alloy, Triad’s Acoustiperf speaker grill can also be painted.
“So often we see installations of outdoor speakers that because of their limited color options look just plain clumsy and even obtrusive in their settings,” says Triad Speakers’ director of marketing Paul Teixeira. “In typical Triad fashion, the goal with our Outdoor Series was to deliver a solution that provides robust sound while completely blending with the décor.”
