Overview: The Niles Audio RS5PRO Rock Loudspeaker is designed for
outdoor use. The GeoRealistic enclosure has the texture and color of natural
rocks, so it blends in just about anywhere in your yard or landscaping. It is
completely weatherproof, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
Note: The Niles Audio RS5PRO is packaged as a single
Drivers: The RS5PRO features a 5-1/4" injection-molded
TCC (talc, carbon, and ceramic-filled) polypropylene cone woofer
and a 1/2" Kaladex dome tweeter, mounted at a 20° angle for optimum
dispersion. The ConeForward driver placement and high quality crossover design
give you superior quality sound in an outdoor setting. The drivers are covered
with shaped MicroPerf aluminum grilles to maintain the natural look.
Weatherproof Enclosure: Niles Audio rock speakers feature
proprietary 4-layer fiberglass construction, making it completely weatherproof
and acoustically inert. It can withstand extreme environments, including UV
exposure and water resistance. It surpasses the military's strict specifications for preventing corrosion (MIL-STD-883D).
The enclosure can also withstand temperature extremes of -50°F to 185°F.
Wiring: The RS5PRO is equipped with a connected 28" length
of burial-rated speaker wire with tinned ends. Two waterproof wire nuts are
included for splicing on your own speaker wire. If you plan to bury the speaker
cable, you should either use cable rated for direct burial, or run the cable
through PVC pipe. The recommended gauge of the speaker wire is determined by the
maximum length needed:
Speaker Security: The RS5PRO comes with a metal security
stake and a Nylon security cable. The security cable should be looped through
the eyelet on the bottom of the speaker enclosure and secured to the stake,
which is then driven into the ground. If desired, enhanced security methods can
be used, such as anchoring the speaker to concrete.
