Many homeowners in Virginia put significant effort into their outdoor spaces. Blessed with a relatively mild mid-Atlantic climate, the Virginia spring is the time when thoughts start turning to spending more time outside.
Activities like getting the yard ready for spring and summer, starting irrigation systems, planting annuals, and uncovering the patio furniture are all part of this time of year. While you’re getting your outdoors ready for the warmer months, you should consider another investment that will pay fun post-winter dividends every year – an outdoor speaker system. Keep reading to see how outdoor audio can add the crowning touch to your time outside at home in Richmond.
For the covered patio, wall or ceiling mount speakers are ideal for high-quality sound. An excellent example of the breed is the Paradigm Stylus Series. Paradigm is a Canadian audio company renowned for its acoustical engineering and quality high-performance speaker lines. The Stylus comes in several models that can fill your patio with rich sound, sporting injection-molded polypropylene cones, pure titanium dome tweeters, and weather and UV-resistant Polyglass™ enclosures.
Your outdoor sound should not be confined solely to the patio area. You can spread your music everywhere throughout your gardens and other landscape areas with a variety of speaker choices. Bullet-style satellite speakers coupled with buried subwoofers can deliver powerful, balanced sound throughout your outdoors with no overly loud hotspots or dead zones. Paradigm’s Garden Oasis series fits that task perfectly.
Other options can help you achieve full sound outdoors with fewer speakers depending on your areas of coverage. Episode's omnidirectional speaker fires robust sound in a 360-degree range, offering a way to position several strategically and enjoy your music the way you do indoors.
How about speakers that disguise themselves as rocks in the landscape? If your gardens mix rock and stone, a rock speaker will blend in perfectly. Paradigm’s Rock Monitor Series comes in two sizes and can be configured to deliver stereo sound from one speaker or be a left or right channel with multiple speakers. Twin offset tweeters and dual midrange drivers disperse sound widely, so you can hear the music even though there are no walls or ceiling from which to reflect sound as you have indoors. Rock speakers are rugged and are popular around pools and water features as they blend well in those areas, providing sound that appears to rise from the surroundings.
