Essential Info

If you are considering an outdoor speaker system for your home, get the most out of your sound by adding a subwoofer that delivers the low frequency bass to compliment your regular speakers. The Niles Audio GSS10 Garden In-Ground Subwoofer is the perfect choice. It is a powerful 10-inch woofer that was designed for in-ground installation - with just the tube and hood needing to be exposed, leaving a very small footprint on your outdoor living space. It effectively extends the listening environment with deep, rich bass and low frequency sounds that will permeate the entire area - the subwoofer does not need to be aimed or pointed in any particular direction. The GSS10 is the ideal solution to add bass without visible space - and disappears into the landscape.

Subwoofer Placement
You can control the bass output by your placement location. This is called the boundary effect. You will get more bass response by mounting the GSS10 near a wall or other flat surface. You can increase the bass output even more by mounting the GSS10 in a corner location. This kind of placement gives the speaker two boundaries, further reinforcing the bass sounds. Of course, mounting the subwoofer further away from any other boundaries will minimize this effect. Landscaping walls or other structures could be utilized for this purpose. A further consideration is that the closer the subwoofer is placed to the home, the more chance of unwanted vibration entering the home when the subwoofer is played at large volumes.
