|GeoRealistic(TM) Styling - - Traditionally, rock speakers have looked like ornaments and not like rocks. Each RS5 style has unique textures and colors that are fashioned after natural rocks. Shaped grilles match the features on the front of the rock, making them blend into the cabinet. All of this extra attention to detail leads to a GeoRealistic(TM) style that enables the RS5 to blend in with other landscaping and disappear. All that will be noticed is the great sound not the loudspeaker. - - Weather Proof Construction - - The cabinet is made from fiberglass, it utilizes double seals on the tweeter, woofer and enclosure cover, the woofer drains water away from it, the grilles are painted aluminum and the drivers are made from weather resistant materials. The RS5 has passed the most stringent environmental tests devised. Surviving over 5 years worth of temperature cycling and still having seals that pass a 24-hour submersion test. It has passed the test requirements for Salt Fog, Operating Temperature, Storage Temperature, UV Exposure and Humidity per military standard 883. Whether you are considered about salt-air, rain, freezing rain, snow, extreme temperatures, high humidity, direct sunlight or combinations of these conditions, the RS5 has proven itself to withstand the harshest conditions Mother Nature can throw at it. - - 5-1/4 inch Talc Filled Polypropylene Woofer - - The unusually stiff talc filled polypropylene cone, the butyl rubber surround, and the substantial magnet and motor structure are optimized for large excursions of the woofer. In this way, the 5-1/4 inch woofer can create outstanding bass output. In the end, the woofer design provides deep rich bass and outstanding weather resistance capabilities. - - 1/2-inch Kaladex(TM) Tweeter - - In the past, rock speakers have used a co-axial tweeter design that has disappointed listeners with a fatiguing and harsh treble sound caused by tweeter ringing. The RS5's 1/2 inch Kaladex(TM) tweeter employs DuPont's latest material technology to produce a dome tweeter with exceptional frequency response and low distortion. The result is a transparent clear, sweet, natural sounding tweeter, which still maintains its extended frequency response and is completely weatherproof. - - Tweeter Placement Improves Coverage and Dispersion - - The tweeter is angled twenty degrees up from the woofer. This means that it is aimed at the listener and not at the ground. This improves the high frequency coverage of the loudspeaker and ensures that all the benefits of the tweeter are heard and not lost in the surroundings. - - Precision Crossover - - A customized electronic dividing network inside the cabinet precisely distributes the music to the woofer and the tweeter. The three-pole two-way design of the RS5 crossover provides excellent stereo imaging, low distortion and superior sonic performance. - - ConeForward(TM) Design - - Most competitive rock speaker manufacturers mount their drivers from inside the cabinet. This moves the front of the driver inside the cabinet creating a tunnel for the driver to play through. This tunnel adversely affects the sound quality of the loudspeaker by making the loudspeaker sound narrow and far away. Niles engineers have used a patent-pending ConeForward(TM) design technique that moves the woofer and tweeter as close to the grille as possible. Combining the ConeForward(TM) design technique with tight quality control leads to unparalleled sonic performance and imaging from an outdoor rock loudspeaker. - - Rigid Acoustically Inert Cabinet Construction - - Niles' utilizes a unique 4-layer cabinet construction to achieve superior non-resonance of the loudspeaker cabinet. This insures that all you hear is the music not the cabinet ringing. - - Low Diffraction Microperf(TM) Aluminum Grilles - - The aluminum Microperf(TM) grille on the RS5 has hundreds of precisely sized perforations, creating an acoustically transparent grille. The aluminum construction resists oxidation enabling years of trouble-free operation in the harshest conditions. We paint both sides of the grille for added protection. - - Connection Cable with Water Resistant Wire Nuts - - Connecting the loudspeaker's cable to the cable running from the house is always a point of concern for the installer. If this connection is not done right, the cable will corrode and the connection will fail. To make sure this connection is trouble-free, we provide a three-foot connection cable rated for burial underground and specialized waterproof wire nuts. Our wire nuts are filled with a waterproof sealant. Just insert the wires and twist them together. Then bury the cable. The connection will be protected from the elements. - - Security Bracket and Cable - - Using the security bracket and cable supplied with the loudspeaker provides a simple but effective method to protect the loudspeaker from theft or unapproved movement. You can easily upgrade our standard security mounting method to provided even greater security, if you require it.|
