Rockustics Outdoor Speakers At Fred's Sound Of Music Audio Video Inc.

The Stone's Never Sounded So Good!
Pavarocci

Rockustics, Inc. features a product line of 27 models of high-fidelity outdoor speakers for both home and commercial applications in any climate. Each of our models are designed to enhance their environment by providing the highest quality sound and unparalleled aesthetics.
Founded in 1987, the first Rockustics rock speakers were made with cabinets hand-chiseled out of actual lava rock and averaged over 300 lb. each. The Rocky Jr. model was born when the top of an original Rockustics speaker fell off! Shortly thereafter, molds were made for each unit, dramatically cutting production costs and the weight of each speaker. All cabinets are now made from a non-polluting, stone and resin compound using over 90% recycled products and are as tough as any rock found in nature.

Optimizing Speaker Placement for Best Sound Maximum acoustic performance should be an important factor in determining speaker placement. Here's how to achieve it:
  • Establish where the most likely or average listening position will be.
  • The speakers should be placed at or close to the same distance from that point.
  • The actual distance between the listening position and the location of the speakers is not critical, but keep in mind that as their distance is increased, the perceived loudness of the speakers will decrease rapidly.
  • For a stereo pair of speakers, try to keep the distance between the speakers somewhat less than the distance between the speakers and the average listening position. The distance between the speakers should subtend roughly 45 degrees as seen from the average listening position.
Speaker Placement
All Rockustics speakers can generate a high "SPL" level (sound pressure level), so be considerate of your neighbors.
