Imagine gathering around to watch your favorite entertainment from your pool or patio. You won’t get far without a TV, but not just any display will work with outdoor conditions. For example, a regular TV can’t reject the ambient lighting, and the glare from sunlight you’ll notice outside.
However, our outdoor TV partner, Sunbrite, creates bright, backlit display panels that cancel out distracting glare -- with some models up to three times the brightness of indoor screens. Even better, you can choose between full-light, partial-light and full shade models depending on the sunlight in your chosen area.
You’ll also welcome the weatherproof features of a TV explicitly made for outdoor use. For example, Sunbrite TV custom engineers their displays to resist rain, wind, dust, snow and harsh sunlight. Even the cabling components are reinforced with weather-resistant coverings.
One of our favorite audio manufacturers, Sonance, makes speakers that look and sound spectacular, both indoors and out. Their various models project pristine, crystal clear sound, all while withstanding outdoor elements and extreme temperatures. If you’re looking for an entertainment system that blends into your pathways or gardens, Sonance makes speakers that look like landscape lighting, and even decorative rocks. We offer a wide array of system options, with something for every situation and budget.
For a full audio system, we recommend the SONARRAY - Garden Series, which comes with a subwoofer and several speakers. Perfect for pathways, pools and gardens, this solution features attractive features that covers thousands of square feet with inconspicuous sound.
