Do you love the idea of enjoying high-fidelity audio in your Virginia Beach yard—but worry about speaker equipment breaking down in the weather? 

Many homeowners are fearful that if they invest in outdoor landscape speakers, they’ll malfunction in the rain, heat, or cold. But with the right equipment and plans to take care of your investment, you can enjoy high-quality sound outdoors for years and even decades. 

Coastal Source: Built to Defy the Elements 

If there’s one outdoor audio brand to know, especially here on the Virginia coast, it’s Coastal Source. Its outdoor speakers are built in a variety of sizes and models and can be installed flush to your house, on surfaces, or partially buried in-ground. 

What makes Coastal Source reputable is its audio quality and durability. Coastal Source is an outdoor technology company only—not an indoor audio brand that’s branching out. Its trademarked Defy the Elements™ design includes an environmental grille and sealed corrosion that protect speakers through rain, snow, moisture, heat, and cold. The speaker’s exterior is manufactured to combat corrosion, UV, and thermal damage, so even in direct sunlight, your Coastal Source speakers are protected. 

Coastal Source takes its durability so seriously that it offers a five-year warranty and will repair or replace any part that doesn’t perform to standard. Thankfully, Coastal Source equipment is designed to perform for years and years to come.
