Overview

Our take on the Acoustic Landscape™ AS4.1

You've probably invested a lot of time in making your yard look great. The Acoustic Landscape AS4.1 speaker system lets you add great sound to your lawn, pool, or patio area without disrupting that carefully cultivated look. Each AS4 garden speaker has a 4-1/4" woofer and 3/4" tweeter for excellent sound reproduction. And each comes with a sturdy stake, so you can place them where they'll create the best, most immersive sound possible. Even better, the sound is directional, so you can concentrate the music where you want it, and not annoy the neighbors in the process. And if you want them to be heard and not seen, no problem, just hide them away in the shrubbery and the music will seem to appear as if by magic. The 8" subwoofer is designed to be buried beneath the ground, so it can add deep bass while remaining low-profile.

The AcoustaScape AS4.1 system lets you enjoy music in your yard without overshadowing your landscaping efforts.

Amazing hi-fi outdoors!! Had to hunt down the connectors from a local retailer for the ones I mounted to the wall, but worth the effort to do it right. Clean, natural, and crisp--these will bring your SACD's and hi res digital music to life.

Features

Landscape Audio System: The Acoustic Landscape AS41 system by Origin Acoustics brings full-range sound to your backyard with four plantable speakers and an 8" burial subwoofer for extended bass response. The AS41 System projects perfectly even sound coverage directly into the listening area with equal volume, turning the whole outdoor space into a sweet spot without causing a disturbance to neighbors; all while remaining completely hidden from sight in landscape foliage. The AS41 system provides a sound coverage of 1500 Ft² and a 70° dispersion pattern with an optimum listening area of 8'-20' from the listening area.

Plantable Speakers: The AS4SAT satellite speakers bring high fidelity audio outdoors in the form of plantable speakers with a camouflage profile to go undercover in natural landscape environments. Once installed, they preserve the natural beauty of the surroundings while delivering a rich and even sonic performance.

  • 2-Way Coaxially Mounted Driver: Each AS4SAT plantable satellite speaker consist of a coaxially-mounted 0.75" PEI dome tweeter and a 4.25" IMP (injection molded polypropylene) woofer with rubber surround.
  • Directs Sound Inwards: In comparison to other outdoor speakers, Acoustic Landscape satellites direct sound inwards towards the listening area, creating great sound that the neighbors won't even notice.

In-Ground Subwoofer: The in-ground subwoofer features an 8" dual-voice coil IMP (injected molded polypropylene) cone woofer with rubber surround and a weatherproof aluminum mushroom head.

Weather/UV-Resistant ABS Enclosure: The plantable satellite speakers and in-ground subwoofer use a weather and UV resistant ABS sealed enclosure for exceptional durability outdoors.

Speaker Wire: Each plantable satellite speaker and the in-ground subwoofer features an attached 35" speaker wire. The speakers and subwoofer can be connected to a standard receiver or amplifier with two available channels and some 4- or 2-conductor direct burial 18-10 AWG speaker wire (sold separately). Ideally, all the speakers and subwoofer will be connected to two parallel wire runs, and these wires will be buried in a single trench. The Acoustic Landscape AS41 system is designed for the speakers to be evenly divided between these two wire runs, with the subwoofer connected to both.

Note: The Acoustic Landscape AS41 system (4 speakers/1 sub) presents an 8-ohm load to your receiver. If you expand the system (up to 8 speakers/1 sub), the system will deliver a 6-ohm load to your receiver.

Mounting Options: The Acoustic Landscape AS41's satellite speakerscome with plantable 7" mounting spikes, while the subwoofer is mounted in-ground.

  • Plantable Spikes For Satellites: Each satellite speaker comes with a plantable spike to stick in the ground. To prevent water damage, angle the speaker less than 45° up. The plantable spike screws into the bottom of the satellite speaker. The plantable spike is hollow allowing the speaker wire to run through it.
  • In-Ground Hole For Sub: Dig a hole for the subwoofer, about 16" deep and 11" in diameter. Use loose dirt to level the subwoofer. The subwoofer shouldn't be in contact with large rocks or large empty holes.

Placement: The Acoustic Landscape AS41 speakers and subwoofer should be strategically placed to evenly distribute sound throughout the outdoor area.

  • Speaker Placement: These plantable satellite speakers should be fairly evenly spaced in a line and aimed so they cover the listening area uniformly. For best coverage, we recommend placing the speakers 6' to 8' apart.
  • Subwoofer Location: Select a location for the subwoofer somewhat near the middle of the speaker arrangement. For more bass, install the subwoofer near a wall or other solid surface. The subwoofer should be positioned away from standing water.

Expandable Sound Coverage: Purchase the Acoustic Landscape AS4SAT Speaker Expansion Pack (981AS4SAT, sold separately) to extend the dispersion of the Landscape Audio System. Each AS4SAT Speaker Expansion pack provides an additional 500 SqFt of even sound coverage on top of an existing AS41 System. Up to two expansion packs can be used in a system for a total of eight speakers and a subwoofer, delivering superior and even coverage in outdoor areas up to 2,500 SqFt in size.

Dimensions:

  • Plantable Satellite Speakers: 5.8125" (w) x 5.625" (h) x 7.125" (d)
  • In-Ground Subwoofer: 9.875" (w) x 18.75" (h) x 9.875" (d)

I've had mine for two years, they have handled the winter weather just fine, in Minnesota well below zero. Obviously not using them at that time but when spring comes they have turned on just fine. [ darrin  Oct 03, 2018 ]

If you mean the Sonos amp, yes. They are however rated pretty high in terms of wattage, and depending how many you are wiring up, might want a amp with more performance and then use a Sonos connect instead. [ darrin  Jul 02, 2017 ]
