Nortek Control today announced the launch of three new SpeakerCraft Rock and Planter Loudspeakers developed to blend in perfectly with outdoor surroundings while bringing the unmistakable high-quality sound of SpeakerCraft speakers to outdoor spaces. The SpeakerCraft RS6 and RS8i rock speakers are available in stunning granite, speckled granite, sandstone and shale brown. The new SpeakerCraft PS6Si planter speaker comes in a natural weathered concrete finish and is designed for use with live plants. With the addition of these new outdoor speakers, the SpeakerCraft brand has brought a total of eighteen new speakers and subwoofers to market in 2021. Across the line, integrators and customers gain access to best-in-class sound technologies and design aesthetics.

Crafted for years of use, the new SpeakerCraft Rock and Planter Loudspeakers offer superior sound, geo-realistic finishes and nofade durable color and cover every outdoor application, audio requirement and visual aesthetic. Each speaker is crafted with military-grade construction and comes with low-diffraction MicroPerf aluminum grilles to maintain a natural outdoor look and create an immersive, acoustically transparent sound experience. For advanced performance, the exclusive ConeForward design positions the drivers close to the grilles to enhance midrange intelligibility and provide highly accurate audio. The SpeakerCraft PS6Si planter speaker features a unique and innovative movable tweeter assembly that adjusts the sound dispersion from 180° for placement in open areas to 90° for corners. 

“Designed from the ground up to be heard and not seen, our new SpeakerCraft Rock and Planter Outdoor Loudspeakers pack the best of our audio technologies into new forms and finishes that will elevate every outdoor project,” said Richard Pugnier, vice president of marketing at Nortek Control. “And with outdoor entertainment continuing to grow at unprecedented rates, we believe we’re bringing our dealers the most relevant, exciting solutions to their clients who are spending more time and money outdoors.” 

“Our new SpeakerCraft outdoor speakers are a direct response to the ever-evolving needs of our custom integrators and were designed to withstand the harshest of weather conditions anywhere, including temperature extremes from -50° to 185° F (-45° to 85° C),” said Jeff Shaw, Senior Director of Product Management for Nortek Control. “When combined with their unique nofade, beautiful appearance, integrators can extend audio entertainment with total confidence anywhere their client wishes.” 

In addition to offering many new performance features, options and legendary, rock-solid reliability, the new SpeakerCraft Rock and Planter Loudspeakers are backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
