Control4 has announced the availability of the new Triad Garden Array outdoor speakers, a family of all-weather, landscape speakers that include satellite speaker (GA4 SAT) and subwoofer (GA10 SUB). Purposefully-built for outdoor use, the speakers feature a durable all-weather exterior designed to withstand hot or cold, rain and snow, dry or humid conditions.
Added to that, the sealed enclosure has been optimised to resist dust and insects, while the overall design of the GA4 SAT is shaped to resemble landscape lighting in order to blend into flowerbeds and gardens.
Meanwhile, the Triad GA10 subwoofer has been designed to be buried in a garden using Triad’s optional underground kit, meaning only a small mushroom port shows above ground, or it can be installed on a porch or deck as a free-standing, down-firing subwoofer using the optional foot kit.
“Traditional outdoor speakers are often mounted on the eaves of the house to direct music into the yard, patio, deck or pool,” says Paul Williams, VP of product management for Control4. “To fill the space with music you have to turn it up, making the music too loud for those near the speakers (and even for the neighbours). The Triad Garden Array speakers are designed to be spread throughout the yard and enjoyed without needing to crank them up.”
Each of the GA4 SAT speakers includes a Triad-exclusive, 4.5-inch Ultra-Broad Dispersion (UBD) driver, providing a 150-degree field of coverage.
