Niles® – from Nortek Security and Control (NSC) – is introducing its new 8ohm/70Volt/100Volt Landscape Audio Series, which includes weatherproof landscape satellite speakers and two burial subwoofers that deliver an indoor quality listening experience to outdoor spaces. The new line is being showcased at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam at the Nortek Security & Control Stand 1-N50.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 8 February 2018 - Niles® - from Nortek Security and Control (NSC) - is introducing its new 8ohm/70Volt/100Volt Landscape Audio Series, which includes weatherproof landscape satellite speakers and two burial subwoofers that deliver an indoor quality listening experience to outdoor spaces. The new line is being showcased at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam at the Nortek Security & Control Stand 1-N50.


"Niles has a long history of delivering solutions to custom integrators," said Alex Zaliauskas, Director of Audio at Nortek Security & Control. "This new garden series delivers the smooth Niles sound, and its 70V/100V tap setting adds an important installation option that our dealers have been requesting. Integrators can install the Niles Landscape Audio Series confident that they are providing their customers with a solution that will provide years of outstanding performance."

The Niles NI-GS-6 6" (152mm) and NI-GS-4 4" (100) All-Weather Satellite Speakers feature weatherproof fiberglass reinforced ABS enclosures that are rugged enough to stand up to any outdoor weather condition as well as to wear and tear from garden equipment. The speakers' nickel-plated brass fittings increase durability for long-lasting performance. The adjustable tap switch enables the satellites to operate in either traditional 8ohm mode or in 70V or 100V mode favored by a growing number of installers. This also enables multiple speakers on a single run to each play at a different volume, such as louder by the pool while quieter by the seating area.

Two new subwoofers offer an equally outstanding new standard for performance and long-term reliability. The Niles NI-GSBSUB-12 12" (300mm) and NI-GSBSUB-10 10" (250mm) In-Ground Subwoofers feature waterproof HDPE enclosures. Each is dunk tested before shipment to ensure against leaks. The port and canopy assembly is designed to move air in an even 360-degree pattern, while the woofer magnet is placed on the vented side of the enclosure to leverage woofer-cooling airflow for motor structure longevity. The critter-proof aluminum mesh grill cover allows for maximum air flow while protecting the entire port assembly against bugs, animals and debris while.

The Niles Landscape Audio Series adds Installation Accessories to ensure safe and secure installation of every outdoor system. These include the AW-LS-STAKE Landscape Speaker Stake Mount, AW-LS-MOUNT Landscape Speaker Surface Mount and the AW-LS-CONDUIT Landscape Speaker Conduit Box Mount. "These mounts speed up installation and make for exceptionally long-lasting performance," Zaliauskas emphasized. "They ensure years of enjoyment for homeowners."
