While indoor speakers have been nuanced into near perfection, outdoor speakers have been judged by how cleverly they could be disguised as rocks. Any mention of acoustic perfection and outdoor speakers was considered audio heresy.
Ambisonic Systems' 6.0 Full-Range outdoor speaker
Those days are over, thanks to an innovator known for his outside-the-box thinking, Jeff Coombs. Ambisonic Systems is the company he founded to perfect his idea is.
The premise of Coombs innovation is an old audio principle: The real speaker is the space in which you present audio waves, not the box and mechanisms that push air. In applying this principle, Coombs reasoned that an array of speakers in an outdoor setting could match the fine acoustics we expect from a traditional indoor system.

Thus the SoniScape Outdoor Loudspeaker System was born. It’s a complete system (including a 70-volt amplifier) that offers full-range satellite loudspeakers, tweeters, a clever in-ground subwoofer, and a host of mounting brackets for a wide range of installation options.
