Overview: The Niles Audio PS6Si is a round planter with a
built-in stereo input speaker that can be used indoors or outdoors. It is
designed to accommodate live plants. This model has a terra cotta finish; it is
also available in a weathered concrete finish.
Note: The PS6Si features a drain-hole to allow water to
drain from your plants.
Drivers: The speaker has a down-firing 6-1/2" dual voice
coil, injection-molded TCC (talc, carbon, and ceramic) filled polypropylene
woofer with a butyl rubber surround. There are two side-firing 1" fluid-cooled,
Tri-laminate Teteron tweeters, mounted 180° apart for optimum dispersion. An
empty tweeter mount is provided that allows you to move one of the tweeters
closer to the other, aiming it at a 90° angle. The dual tweeters and single
woofer provide a quality stereo signal with just one speaker.
Grille: The four aluminum MicroPerf grilles on the planter
speaker have hundreds of precisely-sized perforations, creating an acoustically
transparent grille. The aluminum construction resists oxidation, enabling years
of trouble-free operation in the harshest conditions. Both sides of the grille
are painted for added protection.
Wiring: The speaker features separate left and right channel
inputs. Two 2-foot, burial-rated connection cables are attached to the bottom of
the planter. Waterproof wire nuts are provided to connect your speaker wire to
the speaker. The proper speaker wire gauge is determined by the length of the
- 16-Gauge: Maximum Distance: 60 feet
- 14-Gauge: Maximum Distance: 100 feet
- 12-Gauge: Maximum Distance: 160 feet
Configuration: The speaker can be wired to be used as a
single speaker, stereo input mode, or in a 2-speaker stereo mode. In the
one-speaker stereo input mode, the speaker is 8 ohms. In the two-speaker stereo
mode, the speaker is 4 ohms. The speaker will be louder when used in a
two-speaker configuration compared to a single speaker. The speaker will cover a
circular area with a diameter of 22'.
