Outdoor speaker technology has come a long way in recent years. From humble beginnings of 80’s era boom boxes being dragged outside, most people want to hear music in their backyards or patios.Outdoor speakers range from 60 watt to 300 watt. The advantage of bigger wattage is not only the potential volume increase, but also better sound quality and coverage at lower volumes. A pair of 60-watt patio speakers installed under eaves 20 feet apart will give you great coverage in areas less than 300 square feet. For 300 to 500 square feet, look for 80 to 100 watt speakers; 150 watts to 175 watt speakers will cover 600 to 800 square feet with clear, sharp music sound at soft volumes. Our 200 watt HF12 Rock and HF14 speaker will cover over 1000 square feet and will shake the leaves off the trees, just remember your neighbors may not like you.
