Outdoor Television is a Thing

Our choice is SunBrite and for good reasons. All SunBrite televisions share the features that make them the right choice for outside use: brighter than indoor televisions, weatherproof (protection against snow, rain, insects, humidity), weatherproof cable connections, and a warranty that’s valid for outdoor use. Where you place your TV determines which model is the best fit.
For use in full shade, in areas such as patios, porches, or sunrooms, there are models offering 4K HDR UHD screen with direct LED backlight. These are up to 50% brighter than many indoor televisions.

SunBrite’s durable aluminum case protects against rain, snow, extreme temperatures, dust, salt, and insects; compared to the lightweight, vented plastic of typical indoor TV cases; plus an easy cable-entry system. Built for permanent outdoor installation, the sleek thin-bezel design adds style while the durable aluminum casing protects against weather and insects. Safe and superior performance from winter to summer (-24°F to 122°F outside temperatures) can be found in some models.

Coastal Source Mini-Ellipse Bollard
Coastal Source Modulus Bullet Speaker
Coastal Source 2-Way Ellipse Bollard
The Best Indoor Speakers Outdoors
Coastal Source has taken outdoor audio to whole new level, allowing indoor component-quality audio outside where it can be enjoyed. Their ellipse bollard or bullet designs deliver higher performance than traditional, rack-mounted speakers, even offering coordinating outdoor, weather-proof, amplifiers. These speakers incorporate a patented Plug+Play® cabling system to ensure performance, reliability, and speed of installation.
All Coastal Source speakers are easily hidden within a landscape due to the minimalist design. Yet they look great even when installed out in the open. They have a larger driver area compared to regular outdoor speakers, resulting in higher performance, efficiency and fidelity with less compromise. And our team works with several leading landscape architects (or your own landscape designer) for the right plan and professional installation.
We adore Revel speakers, and their pioneering use of beryllium drivers has set a new standard for speakers. Every Revel product is the result of thousands of hours of work. Since 1996, the engineers at Revel have relied on their technical resources, one-of-a-kind testing facilities, and cutting-edge design tools unavailable to most manufacturers to create every loudspeaker they produce. That’s how Revel continues to set the standard for acoustical accuracy and allow our customers to experience a level of acoustic clarity that they’ve never heard before.
The expertise they have acquired with indoor speakers also extends to their Extreme Climate outdoor loudspeakers. They have been specifically engineered and rigorously tested to perform to Revel’s exacting standards in outdoor, damp, wet, or high-humidity locations and have been designed to withstand environmental abuses while not affecting their performance.
Bowers & Wilkins are among the most renown high-quality speaker brands in the world. When they set out to design outdoor speakers, they leveraged their knowledge and expertise to provide great sound in a weatherproof, sun-proof design. Built to keep on playing, whether in the garden, on the patio or round the pool, Bowers & Wilkins outdoor speakers offer great sound and flexible muting options.
For example, the B&W AM-1 needs a sealed enclosure to shrug off the rain and splashes, but that’s not great for solid, powerful bass. So Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed this clever auxiliary bass radiator to give extra low-end punch from a compact enclosure. Don’t let the small size fool you; it is tough and flexible, and the combination of a slender wall-bracket, a clever one-plug mounting system and 220 degree rotation means it can deliver your music almost anywhere.
Want to hide your speakers, or mesh them into the beauty of your patio or garden? Maybe you lack a place to mount speakers on the house, or lack the room for “rock speakers” in the flowerbeds? The solution is PlanterSpeakers.
PlanterSpeakers can transform the sound of your favorite outdoor area. Their premium speakers integrate beautifully into their surroundings and also serve as a focal point in any design scheme or décor. Most models may be used with live flowers or plants and come with removeable SmartPots.
PlanterSpeakers offer top notch construction and quality sound second to none. From the very unique Terra Cotta PlanterSpeaker with 360° degree music to the symphony orchestra outdoor sound of the magnificent Flagstone speaker their outdoor PlanterSpeakers rival many indoor speakers.
Of course Audio Video Synergy also offers speakers that look like a rock, sound awesome, and are actually a weatherproof outdoor speaker. They are unobtrusive and blend in with your garden or patio.

Great Outdoor Entertainment Starts With a Plan
The right plan will evaluate the space where you wish to entertain. By understand the area, we ensure the best style of speakers (in-ceiling, mounted, hidden) and how many are needed, so you can get the best sound and avoid overcrowding. We’ll also take into account the music source (amplifier or receiver) and how to integrate everything.
Inside a home, where there are walls to reflect and contain sound, subtle power levels are often sufficient. Outside, where there is no room to enclose the sound, you need greater power.
That magical soundstage you enjoy indoors when listening to your favorite vinyl won’t always work outdoors, especially in a large area. You’ll find speakers that play both left and right channels work better, or the system map should be broken up into zones.
