Have a rock concert in your yard

The Niles RS5 Pro combines great sound with a weatherproof enclosure that blends into the surrounding landscape. Each RS Pro series speaker has unique textures and colors that are fashioned to look like natural rocks.

Two-way speaker design

The RS5 Pro speakers use a two-way design for full-range sound. A 1/2" fluid-cooled Kaladex™ tweeter is mounted upward at a 20º angle for optimum coverage. The 5-1/4" TCC (talc, carbon and ceramic) injected polypropylene woofer has a rubber surround to deliver a tight bass thump. Niles mounts the drivers closer behind the grille than most rock speaker manufacturers for more accurate sound with better imaging. You'll enjoy living-room-quality sound on your patio, in your garden, or around your pool.

Built to handle the outdoors, rain or shine

The RS5 Pro is built with durability in mind. Each enclosure is made with four layers of fiberglass and coated with UV protective paint to inhibit fading from sunlight.  Microperf™ aluminum grilles cover the double sealed woofer and tweeter. The enclosure is even shaped to channel rain water away from the drivers. Niles RS5 Pro speakers are tested to meet military specifications for exposure to the elements including extremes of temperature and humidity and even salt fog. Plus they're covered by Niles' limited lifetime warranty.

Features

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 speaker.

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:

Wire Gauge Maximum Distance
16 60 feet
14 100 feet
12 160 feet

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.

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

Q
Would two of these be adequate around a pool area? The pool is 16x 34â?? with a 4â?? walkway around it.
[ Mariah  Mar 02, 2021 ]
3 answers
A
Two could work, but with that size pool and area I would suggest 4. Try the two speakers out first, and you could always add two more.
[ GARY  Mar 05, 2021 ]
A
Probably not. They sound great and are very durable but you probably need the next larger size.
[ Susan  Mar 02, 2021 ]
A
Hi. Unfortunately can't answer that question I'm in New York So I haven't used them yet. One thing I did notice is wiring the speakers you have to twist them together there's not slot with red and black to put speaker wire thru. I did not know that.
[ DENNIS  Mar 02, 2021 ]
Q
Is this an "SI" single stereo speaker?
[ Thomas  Feb 12, 2021 ]

I have these wired as a stereo pair L/R, I believe, from reading the manual these can be wire as a stereo speaker, but, as stated, I am utilizing as a pair, and these are a second pair in my outdoor listening area. BTW, in this application they sound remarkably rich and I am pleased with them.
[ Vincent  Feb 13, 2021 ]
A
It is one channel, therefore you need two speakers for stereo
[ G  Feb 12, 2021 ]
A
Yes it is
[ LEIGH  Feb 12, 2021 ]
A
I wouldn't.... I bought 2 and will buy another 2 for the right sound that I want.
[ JOHN  Feb 12, 2021 ]
A
I'm assuming "SI" is self-install. If so, it was very simple and I am extremely impressed with how well it sounds, especially for the size it is. I hooked it up to my Sonos AMP and have to leave the volume down not to blow out my neighbors that are 25' away. I wouldn't definitely by additional units if I had a need.
[ D JAYE  Feb 12, 2021 ]
A
Yes
[ Steven  Feb 12, 2021 ]
A
No. Its meant to be a part of a pair, foursome, etc.
[ Roland  Feb 12, 2021 ]
Q
Can this speaker connect to a Denon receiver wirelessly?
[ Paul  Apr 02, 2015 ]

[ Bruce  May 05, 2015 ]
A
No. Hardwire only
[ MARK  Apr 14, 2015 ]
A
This speaker is not wireless.
[ mark  Apr 06, 2015 ]
A
No this is a wired speaker.
[ T. Michael  Apr 06, 2015 ]
A
NO
[ Jason  Apr 06, 2015 ]
A
Nope
[ Brandon  Apr 05, 2015 ]
A
No, it has to be hardwired.
[ MICHAEL  Apr 05, 2015 ]
