Summer is Coming

Summer is a great time to think about your sound system. After all, this is the time for backyard barbecues, pool parties, dinner surrounded by fireflies, and so many evenings relaxing on the deck. In short, a great outdoor sound system is absolutely ideal for making it a great season.

At Entertainment Technology, we have a wonderful array of options for any backyard setting and price point. With a lineup of premier brand names and audio quality, we have the perfect suggestions for speakers, amps, streaming devices and more. These suggested brands, along with many others, are available in our showroom for your listening pleasure. (Please call ahead to confirm if there’s a specific model you are curious about.)

 

 

Speakers by Revel, M55XC and M80XC

For starters, we highly recommend some crystal clear speakers by Revel. As one of the most respected brands in the industry, Revel provides some of the greatest sound at a reasonable price. Specifically, we suggest the m55xc and m80xc models.

The Revel M55XC is a 2-way 5.25-inch / 130mm Extreme Climate outdoor loudspeaker. As part of the XC Series, they have been specifically engineered and rigorously tested to perform to Revel’s exacting standards in outdoor, damp, wet, or high-humidity locations and have been designed to withstand environmental abuses while not affecting their performance. The M55XC is also resistant to corrosion from salt water and can be deployed in marine applications such as on docks or beachfront property. The included InvisiBall® mounting system provides flexible positioning options while the stainless steel speaker terminals with weather-protection cover ensure long-lasting performance. 70V / 100V capability is included for large system configurations or long cable runs. With the M55XC, audiophile-caliber sound quality can now be found in Extreme Climate installations.

The Revel M80XC is a 2-way 8-inch / 200mm Extreme Climate outdoor loudspeaker. As part of the XC Series, they have been specifically engineered and rigorously tested to perform to Revel’s exacting standards in outdoor, damp, wet, or high-humidity locations and have been designed to withstand environmental abuses while not affecting their performance. The M80XC is also resistant to corrosion from salt water and can be deployed in marine applications such as on docks or beachfront property. The included InvisiBall® mounting system provides flexible positioning options while the stainless steel speaker terminals with weather-protection cover ensure long-lasting performance. 70V / 100V capability is included for large system configurations or long cable runs. With the M80XC, audiophile-caliber sound quality can now be found in Extreme Climate installations.
