Essential Info

When entertaining outdoors, what you really want is smooth, even sound throughout the entire listening area. Typical stereo sound is achieved with the two-speaker, left and right configuration - however, this stereo input speaker, offers blended stereo sound from a single speaker. The Niles Audio PB6Si 6 1/2-Inch Stereo Input Weatherproof Planter Box Outdoor Speaker is functional and combines great outdoor sound with beautiful landscaping. The single speaker has left and right channel speaker inputs that project quality stereo sound over a larger area than conventional loudspeakers. This gives you a lot more options when it comes to installation - as you can place the planter box (or multiple planter boxes and/or planter pots) throughout your outdoor living space to obtain the optimum sound. Designed for outdoor use, the speaker even has dual 3-foot burial-rated connection cables with waterproof wire-nuts to ensure trouble free connection.

  • More Info

    The PB6Si loudspeaker can be installed on a wood deck or on a concrete/stone patio. There are three considerations for placing the loudspeaker: connecting each cabinet in one-speaker stereo mode or two-speaker stereo mode, ease of running the cable to the loudspeaker and coverage of the loudspeaker. Never choose a place where an automatic sprinkler will be aimed on or near the loudspeaker. While the loudspeaker is weatherproof, continuous streaming water will shorten the product's life. The PB6Si loudspeaker will cover an area of a circle with a 22-foot diameter, in front of the speaker.

    One Speaker Stereo Mode vs. Two Speaker Stereo Mode
    One-speaker stereo mode has the advantage of covering a larger area than the two-speaker stereo mode. The trade off between the two configurations is volume. The two-speaker stereo configurations will be able to play louder in its area than the one-speaker stereo configuration.

    Incorporating a Volume Control
    It is possible to control the volume of the sound at the speaker location. Volume controls are connected in line with the speaker. It is usually desirable to control the volume of the speakers in different areas or zones of an outdoor speaker system. Niles recommends our standard weatherproof volume control, WVC series or our weatherproof muting volume control, WMVC series. In addition to controlling the volume of the loudspeakers, these controls allow the addition of added speakers without adding more amplifier channels.
