Garden speaker for distributed audio systems
Our take on the Atlas GST-G by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Great-sounding speakers for your outdoor areas
Need to extend background music and important announcements to the swimming pool or patio? The Atlas GST-G speaker is designed to deliver great sound while hiding conveniently out of sight in a landscaped commercial setting. The tall base of the speaker can be buried ahead of time during landscaping work, allowing the speaker portion to be attached afterward when there's less danger of it being stolen or damaged.
This speaker isn't just convenient — it also sounds great. An 8" poly/Kevlar® woofer provides punchy bass and mids, and a 1/2" Mylar tweeter delivers crisp, clear highs. It's all weatherproof, so you don't have to worry about sudden storms, humidity, or lengthy spells of precipitation. See what our satisfied customers have to say.

Overview: The Atlas GST-G is a garden loudspeaker designed to blend into outdoor environments such as theme parks, hotels, or any other architecturally landscaped area. The GST-G features a coaxial 8" speaker with a polypropylene/Kevlar cone and rubber surround, 1.5" voice-coil, 21 oz. magnet, and a 1/2" Mylar dome tweeter in a downward firing configuration that won't collect dust or condensation and is protected by a triple-layer grill. It also includes a 70 volt transformer with tap settings for 8, 16, and 32 watts along with an 8Ω bypass, and has 360˚ of horizontal and 50˚ of vertical coverage area.
Construction: The GST-G's rugged construction can support up to 250 lbs. and its tall base allows it to be semi-buried or surface mounted. The two piece enclosure design allows the base section to be installed and wired during initial construction, letting the contractor install the speaker/transformer section later, minimizing the chance of the speaker getting damaged or stolen during site construction. The base also includes a dedicated mounting pad for easy conduit installation.
