Our take on the SpeakerCraft Ruckus 6 One

Rockin' sound in the garden

Ruckus landscape speakers look and sound great in gardens, backyards, flower beds and any other natural outdoor environment. The rock-inspired enclosures are made of reinforced poly-resin that matches the color of the speaker's weather-resistant lacquer coating. The result is a stone finish that, even if chipped or scratched, will expose the same color and texture underneath. The coaxial design pairs a 6-1/2" poly woofer with a 1/2" dome tweeter, offering smooth frequency response from deep low notes all the way up to the high end. The Ruckus 6 One provides a nice blend of good looks and great sound for your outdoor spaces.

Good sound. Easy to get set up. May need to get an outdoor subwoofer to add more bass, but haven't decided yet. Great price!

Great backyard sound!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers "rock". I was a sceptic but Speakercraft makes quality indoor speakers so I purchase two for the backyard. They are plugged into a Sonos powered amp. They sounded so good I purchased two more. Four speakers in a moderate sized yard sounds amazing! Quality sound at all volume levels and the flexibility to change music, artists, volume on your phone...what else do you need?

Pros: Great sound at a value price.

Cons: The gray looked a little fake so I used spray paint to blend some browns in. For the second pair I ordered the brown and it blends better.

It's a great sound. But it'd be better if it looked better. Looked more natural.

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Doesn't look at all like a rock


Hands-on research

Product Research


Outdoor Landscape Speaker: The SpeakerCraft Ruckus 6 outdoor, landscape speaker is the perfect choice for gardens, backyards, flower beds, and any other natural outdoor environments. This "rock"-style enclosures is made of reinforced poly-resin that matches the color of the U.V. weather-resistant lacquer coating that covers the speaker. The result is a stone finish that, even if chipped or marred, will simply expose the same color and texture underneath. This means the speaker will look good and sound good for years to come.

Note: Although this speaker is designed to withstand the elements, there are precautions you should take to optimize the long-term performance of the speaker. Keep soil and wood chips from covering the speaker grille. If soil accumulates on the grille, it can be rinsed away with low water pressure. Chemicals commonly used in the yard can potentially damage the rubber parts of the speaker. Avoid spraying such chemicals onto or near the speaker. Also avoid placing the speakers where the grille area will come in direct contact with sprinklers.

Two-Way Coaxial Speaker System: The SpeakerCraft Ruckus 6 outdoor, landscape speaker features a 0.5" polyamide dome tweeter that coaxially mounted to a 6.5" polypropylene cone woofer with rubber surround. The woofer's basket is made from a special weatherproof nylon that prevents the magnet from rusting. Rubber spiders in the polypropylene woofer seal the tweeter posts and keep water and moisture from entering the voice coil. Even the wiring inside the speakers are coated with silicone rubber to prevent corrosion. This two-way coaxial driver system produces higher fidelity sound and greater sound pressure levels for the outdoors.

Speaker Wire: The Ruckus 6 outdoor, landscape speaker has a 24" two-conductor cable exiting the bottom of the speaker. This cable should be connected to a similar cable (sold separately) run to the speaker location from your audio system.  SpeakerCraft recommends using certified direct burial cable (sold separately) that is ideal for this purpose. The cable can be run either directly beneath the speaker into the ground, or you can use the notch on the bottom of the cabinet to exit the cable out the side.

Note: When attaching the wire to the outdoor speaker, it is critical that a high quality connection is achieved. A poor connection may lead to corrosion and a decline in or loss of performance. For best results, use a set of weatherproof wire-nuts (sold separately). Another option is to use a watertight direct burial box or crimp or solder the wires together and use a heat shrink tube to seal each connector (all sold separately).

Anti-Theft Ring: The Ruckus 6 outdoor, landscape speaker includes an integrated anti-theft ring located at the bottom of the cabinet. This ring will allow you to attach a security harness (sold separately) to it.

Speaker Placement: Ideally, you should place the speaker as close to the primary listening area as possible. The perceived volume of the speaker decreases rapidly as it is moved further from the listener. If you desire music over a wide area, it is best to have a larger number of speakers playing at low volume, rather than a few speakers playing at high volume; keep this in mind when designing your outdoor system.
