When you design your outdoor sound system one of the most important elements to look for is a fantastic outdoor subwoofer. This is the loudspeaker which is responsible for the bass. Basic speakers often don’t have a subwoofer which means that you don’t hear everything you should be hearing – your audio is impaired. It’s so important to have one because the bass sound is much lower and gives a richer, fuller audio experience – the type of sound you experience in a movie theatre.
Bearing the above in mind, if you’re looking for a good quality set of outdoor subwoofer – check out these four which I’ve compared and used. They’re all available on Amazon.com and promise a superior audio experience which I can personally vouch for.
Polk Audio AM 3386 – Outdoor Subwoofer 10 Inch Speaker
This one is quite an expensive product at $299 in on-line stores, but it does deliver excellent performance. The beauty of this outdoor subwoofer is it is suitable for all year round use and is weatherproof so you don’t need to bring it back indoors. So whatever the weather it will perform.
It also looks just like a planter so if you want something which blends in well with your background – this is ideal. No matter how loud you crank up the volume you get an incredible amplified sound with no distortion and you can really hear that base!
This outdoor subwoofer has a 10-inch long-throw including dual voice coil that makes it a very good value package and even though the base is not as profound as you would have in an straight-forward sub, for out doors it is perfect.
While it’s a pricey product it sounds great and looks good – wherever you’re enjoying it, at the pool, on your deck, in your backyard it delivers superior quality.
TIC GS-3 150-Watt Outdoor In-Ground Speaker
Now this is the ultimate in subwoofer speakers! It’s also exceptionally good value at just $84 in on-line stores and the reviews are outstanding. It’s weather resistant too so it’s built to withstand most weathers however bring it inside if it’s going to rain heavily. It looks good too because it’s green so if you place it near the grass it’s unobtrusive.
With a 200W speaker expect premium quality sound and it gives a 360° sound so you can hear it wherever you are in your outdoor area. If you’re looking for something which sounds like you’re out clubbing in your backyard – don’t hesitate and it’s half the price of most other subwoofer speakers available – I rated it 5 out of 5 without hesitation.
Earthquake Sound Granite 10D Outdoor Subwoofer
You’ll surprise everyone with this speaker from Earthquake Sound because it looks like a piece of granite rock so is almost unnoticeable in an outdoor space. It’s not cheap though, retailing at $393 in on-line stores but it’s worth the outlay.
It’s not a wireless speaker but it does have a dual voice coil woofer and supports the bass tones when outside – not impairing any sound, the audio quality is excellent. There are no reviews on Amazon.com yet but it does promise a superlative sound experience.
Niles GSS10 Outdoor Speaker
This speaker is available from Amazon.com and is manufacture by Niles. It retails at about $479 so for that amount you expect an exceptional product. You won’t miss any audio with this speaker, it has a very warm and rich baseline and the quality is superb – you can hear the sound well into the distance on a high volume and what I truly love about this speaker is that you can hide it by burying it into the ground so it doesn’t alter the look of your outdoors.
Weatherproof too – it’s a very high quality piece of equipment and the port tube (which is the piece visible above ground) is fully paintable so you can coordinate it to perfection.
One of the reviews explains how you don’t realise what you’re missing sound-wise until you’ve used one of these speakers and it’s true. If you want to shock your neighbors and throw a memorable party with all your favorite tracks without having to move speakers in and out – this is the speaker for you!
