Niles Introduces New Line of Audiophile-Quality Outdoor Rock and Planter Speakers at CEDIA 2012

The speakers are designed to deliver an audiophile-quality performance to any residential outdoor setting, in a case that is strong enough to stand up to anything that Mother Nature can deliver.

Niles®, The First Name In Custom Installation®, today announced the CEDIA market introduction of its next generation of rock speakers designed to deliver an audiophile-quality performance to any residential outdoor setting, in a case that is strong enough to stand up to anything that Mother Nature can deliver. Featuring Niles' signature rugged design and long-lasting materials, the Niles GeoRealistic™ Pro Series Rock and Planter Speakers are engineered to deliver the highest quality audio fidelity and weather any outdoor climate.


The announcement of the new speakers was made today by Paul Starkey, Chief Marketing Officer at Niles at CEDIA EXPO 2012 in Booth #902 of the Indiana Convention Center.

"These new speakers were designed to fit into any residential outdoor setting, without compromising aesthetic design. Our development team traveled the country to find real rocks that matched the look we wanted for our speakers, and specialized custom molders were then handcrafted to match them. Only Mother Nature could do better." Starkey said.

Engineered with a focus on durability, the GeoRealistic™ Pro Series speakers feature a new NoFade™ Protective Finish and a new four-layer fiberglass weave, ensuring that the speakers are at least five times more durable and long-lasting than the current model of rock speakers, even under the most extreme UV conditions. The advanced conformal coatings on the crossover boards will protect the speakers against moisture, dust, and chemicals, assuring proper electrical connections even in the harshest environments.


The Niles Planter Speakers are designed to perfectly blend into any outdoor environment. Available in two types, the PB6Si Pro rectangular box shape, and the PS6Si Pro circular planter, each speaker is available in two colors, terracotta and weathered concrete.
