A Fully Functional Planter Box Integrates a High-End Speaker

August 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Product Title (In box)

  • 6.5″ dual voice coil injection-molded TCC (talc, Carbon, And Ceramic) filled polypropylene woofer
  • Dual 1″ fluid-cooled tri-laminate Teteron tweeters
  • One-speaker stereo-input mode or two-speaker stereo mode
  • Grill matches the planter box for a natural and realistic look
  • Weatherproof design allows for an outdoor installation and even accommodates live plants

If you find yourself outside in your backyard often and feel that something is missing, it’s more than likely the lack of fresh-tunes in the form of music. From Niles Audio comes the PB6Si PRO, an outdoor all weatherproof speaker and planter box. Niles Audio delivers the mids and lows via the 6.5 inch dual voice injection-molded TCC (talc, carbon, ceramic) filled polypropylene woofer while the dual 1 inch fluid-cooled tri-laminate Teteron tweeters deliver the silky smooth highs. There’s a lot of technical terms here, but just know they are designed to deliver awesome sound. There are two modes which allow for a one-speaker stereo-input mode or two-speaker stereo mode. The grill matches the finish to provide that stone pot/planter look and YES, you can plant real live plants in it. Fill it with roses while enjoying some classical music or fill it with Venus Flytraps and play death metal. The idea here is to enjoy music while being outdoors in your lush backyard without having an unsightly speaker design attempting to blend in to the surroundings. You will probably find yourself outdoors enjoying the Sun more often thanks to music. Being outdoors + Music + Sun = Vitamin D. I see nothing but positive things here. Read More
