NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 16, 2007 - StereoStone, Inc. (www.stereostone.com), a leader in American -made architectural outdoor weatherproof speakers, is proud to announce that it will feature its award -winning Box Planter Outdoor Speaker System at the 2007 CEDIA Expo, held in Denver from Sept. 6 -9 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth 820. Recently bestowed a 2007 Electronic House Product of the Year award, StereoStone's box planter discretely blends into landscapes and patios while providing 100 -, 125 -, and 250 -Watt output options in a choice of terra cotta or white finishes.


"As outdoor entertaining becomes more and more popular, the desire for an audio system that blends naturally into any environment, whether in the yard or on the patio, while still delivering exceptional performance has also increased," explained Alan Rottner, vice president of sales & marketing for StereoStone. "In many cases, outdoor speakers designed to mount underneath a patio cover or high upon a deck may not be the most appropriate route when selecting a system for outdoor entertainment. They sometimes detract from the look of the yard and don't have the power to fully cover the intended area. Also, sometimes there is only a patio that requires audio, such as an apartment or townhouse, and installing outdoor box speakers is just not applicable. That's were StereoStone's box planter speakers come in."

Disguised in a fully operational planter, the box planter is triple protected from outdoor elements, including protection from insects, rain, snow, and ice, as well as from the sun's ultraviolet rays while providing great audio performance. StereoStone's exclusive loudspeaker design uses ferrofluid cooling technology, while also using santoprene weather resistant surround suspension and the latest poly mica cone materials. This permits greater power handling with lower distortion.

Additional StereoStone Box Planter specifications include:
• 100 -, 125, and 250 -Watt options

"Consumers should not make the mistake of making apples to oranges comparisons when choosing a system," Rottner added. "Conventional 'box' speaker manufacturers whose products are designed for protection under a roof soffit should not be compared with a landscape -type product that is designed for the elements, such as StereoStone's products. Other conventional looking box speakers may claim that they are weather -proof and can be fully exposed in the middle of a yard, but the weary consumer should do one's homework before choosing such a product to see how many seasons they can get out of such a product before it needs replacing. The same goes for any outdoor speaker system, including architectural landscape systems, no matter the manufacturer and no matter what their claims of endurance and performance may be."
