Summer holds an opportunity that the rest of the year tends to hinder, the sunny and warm days with cool breezes. The patio, yard, and pool are truly enjoyed during these times and to enhance the experience the element of music should be incorporated. The combination of beautiful weather and quality music can create the ideal setting for one to relax and enjoy the moments they have with friends, family, or to themselves. When a person is looking to keep their backyard looking gorgeous and incorporate quality sound they should look no further than PlanterSpeakers.
PlanterSpeakers are just what they sound like, a speaker found in a planter. PlanterSpeakers by Madison Fielding began in 1999 as a custom installation job with a client in the Northeast in search of the best speakers for outdoor use. Their seemed to be no place to set up bracket speakers which could not be mounted on the house or hung from the flowerbeds. Even if the opportunity to set up the standard speakers for outdoor use presented itself they did not hold the same quality the indoor had with its beautiful speakers, subwoofers, and quality amps. A good sized planter was spotted in the corner of the customer’s patio and the idea began to take form, then the work started. The main focus when creating the PlanterSpeakers had been sound quality, planting space, drainage, and environmental issues. The focus still holds strong to today beyond the ten-inch woofers, four-inch midranges, one-inch soft dome tweeters, and planter hybrid.
PlanterSpeakers feature top notch construction, weatherproof materials, and high quality speakers all in one. The past models of PlanterSpeakers have all integrated astoundingly into their surroundings providing quality sound second to none such as; Flagstone, Lattice, Piermont, Sedona, and the Terra Cotta/ Granite PlanterSpeakers.
