TruAudio Introduces Outdoor Birdhouse Speaker

Loving Sound, Loving Birds

ST. GEORGE---April 1, 2013-As part of its "Hands Grasping Feathers" initiative, TruAudio is unveiling a new line of outdoor birdhouse speakers.


"I've noticed that when I install outdoor speakers, many end up with a bird nest on top. I just figured If you can't beat 'em.... So, I suggested to TruAudio that they make an outdoor speaker that also functions as a bird house. And danged if they didn't do it!" said Chris Zarndt of Las Vegas Home Theater. Zarndt became Head Creative Consultant with TruAudio in the development of the BRD-22 Outdoor Birdhouse Speaker.

The BRD-22 comes in a custom-designed cabinet made from UV resistant, ABS plastic that is both durable and homey in nature. TruAudio also developed its own ABS color - BRDdrop white - that will withstand years of weather abuse while providing discrete color matching for the occupant's waste products.

The BRD-22 features a 6" injected poly woofer that is timbre-matched to the Yellow-throated Warbler - a breed largely considered to have the most ubiquitous of bird voices. And, in an innovative move, TruAudio opted to leave out a potential tweeter in exchange for increased living space.

"We figure if we're going to all this trouble to provide them with a speaker and a home, the least a bird can do is tweet about it," said Zarndt.
