Fill Your Outdoor Space With the Best Possible Sound

Summer is right around the corner, and with summer comes many outdoor events. From cookouts to pool parties, you might find your Reno, NV, backyard full of family and friends. To enhance the entertainment in your backyard this summer, you may want to consider an outdoor audio system. Outdoor speakers can withstand the elements year-round while filling your space with high-quality music.

But how do you decide on an outdoor sound system? There are so many manufacturers and product lines that can make the decision a bit complicated. Luckily, there are ways to narrow down your options by considering your space and needs. Here are a few things to consider when choosing the best outdoor speakers.



First, where in your outdoor space will you want to listen to music, podcasts, or other entertainment? Do you just want audio on your patio or will you want to pump high-quality sound throughout your entire backyard? Determining where you’ll want your audio will help you choose your speaker.

For example, if you only need audio in your patio space, you may want on-wall speakers that attach to your exterior wall or large tower speakers. Sonance makes on-wall Mariner speakers or Extreme in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, perfect for a patio space. James Loudspeaker also has outdoor towers for a bold audio solution.

If you want audio throughout your entire backyard, you’ll want distributed landscape speakers. These speakers will be installed throughout your yard, typically within a garden, to discreetly deliver premium audio throughout your entire space. Every square inch of your backyard will be covered by speakers you can barely see. 

Hidden or Bold

Similar to indoor sound systems, your outdoor speakers can be as bold or discreet as you would like. For example, James Loudspeaker has stylish, bold tower loudspeakers for fans of tower speakers that deliver a loud, clear sound in a larger space. If you’re looking for something a little more subtle in your patio space, choose an on-wall option which can be painted to match your exterior wall. 

For landscape speakers, James Loudspeaker and Sonance offer discreet landscape speakers that look like spotlights to deliver sound throughout your backyard. The in-ground subwoofers will fill out the system with smooth but invisible bass. And for an even more invisible system, Sonance has speakers designed to look like rocks that can elevate your stylish landscape and deliver unrivaled sound.

When choosing the best outdoor speakers for your Reno, NV, home, there is no one right answer. You’ll need to consider what your space is like and what you need from your system.
